Question about Coleman Electrical Supplies
Sometimes if you "run dry" you can shrink the needle valve on the float bowl. when you fill with fuel it will get stuck in the hole that lets the fuel into the bowl.

I have one of these generators, and I can tell you that at least once a year, I have to pull the petcock type assembly off tank, and clean it. I also drain and clean the tank. It gets a sediment build up, and the petcock system isn't the greatest in the world. I'm going to say that you either have a problem in the petcock type assembly, or you have a stuck jet in the carb, either of these can happen with it sitting for the long period of time. Start by removing the fuel line to the carb and checking the fuel flow. Sounds like you may have already done this, I'm unclear on that. Then I would remove the carb, and soak it overnight in a penetrating oil. This will loosen up any rust or parts that may be sticking. One other thing you may consider, depending on where you live, you may have a mud dauber or wasp nest in the intake or other critical area of the engine. I still get amazed at where I find mud dauber nests occasionally, the little buggers seem to be able to get anywhere.

Check the Oil. If it is low, the Low Oil cutout will shut the engine off after a few seconds. If the oil is full, try disconnecting the oil sensor. If this makes it run, you will need to diagnose and repair the cutout system.

If the generator hasn't been used for awhile the rotor may have lost it's magnetism. All you need is to re-excite it. There are several websites that explain how to do this. It's a good place to start.

SOURCE: pull start recoil assembly
I bought a replacement recoil starter for my 1850 at Pats small engine parts. The part number for a 3.5 B & S is 499706. If you look on the heat shield on the side of the motor there is the engine model and s/n. Hope this helps.
