Question about Electrical Supplies
Does it have and automatic idle? If so cut it off and see if engine can run at 3600rpm no load. If still stalls, your jets(brass tube) have something blocking holes and carb needs either a real good clean in a dip, rebuilding, or replacing.

This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

The engine should run at 3750 rpm at no load. If that's OK then you may need to troubleshoot the capacitor inside the end of the generator opposite the rope. Since the thing has been stored for some time you may just need to flash the field of the generator to restore the residual magnetism in the rotor. The easiest way to do this is thru the 110 outlet but it's a little dangerous. Plug an old lamp cord into the outlet, start the generator, and momentarily connect a 9 volt dry cell to the wires, then shut the generator down and see if there is 110 when you restart it.

The control board that senses load (current) is not working.It should drop to low with no output current. (nothing running)

Check your air filter to make sure it is clean, especially if the gen. has been run in dirty, dusty conditions. Make sure the gas tank vent is not clogged.
Also, pour some combustion cleaner into the carb. through the air intake to clean the carb. It sounds like it is starving for gas.
Hope this helps.

Fuel system needs cleaned. Dirt or build up get's in the passages and it can not properly regulate the fuel/air mixture. Being it runs well in choke position I would suspect it is plugged on the idle passage. Sometimes you can add a very small amount of "Seafoam" to the fuel and let it run while slowly moving the lever to the run position and this will clean it out. It is also possible that the fuel tank has a small amount of water in it. Good luck and have a great day.
