I don't have any idea what Carl just said, but remove the little ground wire from the coil and try to start the engine. If it fires and runs ok, you have a grounding issue somewhere and need to follow the wires around to see if anything that shouldn't be touching metal, is.

SOURCE: 4ckm21 generator runs only if

I had same problem and to make a long story short, it wasn't any common problems like oil pressure switch, etc. Solution was the start stop coil/ ignition coil. Looks like a 1" ice cube behind the panel and it usually (not always) has a tattle tail indicating failure.

My 20kW Kohler home generator (nat gas) cranks but won't start. Definitely getting fuel. Everything checked in October with new spark plug. Maybe a setting?


Did you check the oil level? Some generators have a oil sensor that will now allow it to start if the oil level is too low.
