You need to:
1) replace the fuel in the tank
2) Remove the petcock and clean filter located on top
3) Rinse out tank with clean fuel
4) Clean the carb (replacement carb or carb rebuild kit might be required if damaged by ethanol in fuel)
5) Put it all back together and run the generator.
The high limit is doing its job.It would have some thing to do with control like the thermostat or the contactor could be sticking.Does this have a float in it.Is it clean.Do you have hard water.Is water in tank before heat kicks on.Here are a few things to check.If you are not comfortable with electric and know how to read a volt meter be careful and always turn off the breaker.
Hi Check an see if you have the magnet in your water tank. That is your signal to the computer that it is full if it is at the top of its chamber. If you don't have a magnet ( gray cylinder) in the water tank that is your problem. If it is on the bottom the magnet needs to be replaced.
The wash tank element should be operated through a 3 or pole contactor which gets its power only when the rinse tank has come up to temp and switched the thermostat over(rinse tank heating takes priority). Is the rinse tank element fully intact ie-is it pulling its full amperage or is part of the element blown causing it to take longer to heat? Is the rinse contactor dropping in when the thermostat for the rinse tank is turned fully down?
It sounds like a thermostat or contactor problem- good luck and let me know how you get on.
