My cousin has one of these models and the same thing happened to his. It was the natural gas regulator valve that went out. He could hear the clicking noise which is the spark ignitor trying to ignite the gas pilot light. After replacing the gas regulator the unit work fine as ever

Hello, I tried to answer this problem you had a few days ago. You were worried
the hurricane was come and your generator wouldn't start. I tried to post the
answer but Quest has the slowest servers were work properly. To many customers
and not updated servers. Anyway I hope this help you out.
First, replace the fuel filter. When taking out the fuel filter let the gas in the run into a can. This will help to remove any sediment in the fuel tank. Buy a couple of fuel filters. One problem is it where you live. Condensation builds up in the fuel tank and this create rust. When the hurricane is over. Remove the fuel tank, and have it cleaned out. Now, see if they can line the fuel tank inside with a plastic coating. This will stop the rust. Also, insert absorbents packs in the tank when the generator is idle. This will will help the moisture build up.
Second, change the oil and remove the oil pressure shut off sensor and clean it or replace it.
If it has a temperature sensor take it out and clean it. If it has a oil filter change it also.
Third, remove the spark and clean it or replace it. Make sure you have the right plug gap on the spark plug..
Fifth, use some carburetor cleaner and spray around the throttle place and choke plate and make sure that the governor arm to the carburetor is free to operate and everything in the carburetor is working freely.
Fourth, remove the air filter and clean it or replace it.
Sixth, remove all the fuel in the tank and filter the fuel with a couple pair of your wife's pantie hose.
Be really careful, gasoline is extremely explosive.
Seventh, remove the fitting from the tank and use compressed air to clean out the tank. You might think I'm going to far here. Once you think the tank is clean install all the brass fitting and hose and new filters and pour the filter gas back into the tank. as long as it is new gas, if it's fuel old depose of the old fuel.
Next, Never used starting fluid on gas engines. If you get to much starter fluid in the combustion camber it can explode and blow the head off or nock the top of piston off destroying the engine. You and your family be safe. GB you all....stewbison
