Your battery is dead. The B&S generators take an AGM style battery, you can get one at Interstate. Use the 35 amp-hr model.

Briggs and Stratton 7KW House Generator can not start. Model 01897

You may be experiencing the major short fall in CNG & propane systems. The gas regulator. They are unforgiving. If used every day they stay clear and last forever. But intermittent use allows moisture to form & oxidize internal components. Valves & diaphragm start to malfunction and then the safety design of the regulator prevents it from working unless all is well. I'd be willing to bet this is your problem. Good luck.

Cant run both a/c at same time

A 5KW is too small to run two HVAC at once, especially if they do not have interlock relays where only one at a time can cycle. It needs a 7KW for two HVAC units

sounds more like a fuel problem not oil being spilled on it but check the oil level some have a low oil shut off see if you can keep it running spraying carb cleaner in the air filter that will tell you if it is a fuel problem more so a fuel problem if you left fuel in it for more than 30 days

Black max 7kw generator high voltage output

Those voltage readings MAY be normal.

The AC waveform may cause your meter to read inaccurately. You would need to use a TRUE RMS meter to accurately read the voltage.

The siple meters actually read the AVERAGE voltage and then are calibrated to mulltiply it by the "form factor" for a sine wave. OFTEN these generators don't produce a clean sine wave. A square-ish wave will read higher on the garden variety meters.

Compare the brightness of a lamp comparing to when run on your utility.

The frequency depends on engine speed ... yours is running a bit fast...check it under at least half load and if off, adjust the govenor slightly.
