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.

Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.
Let me know how it goes..

The battery charging is also a load. If the battery is not well charged or old it may need about 60 - 120 W to charge, which is not "Idle".

SOURCE: I have a G5500R Makita
sounds like you will need to remove carby and give a good clean and soak for a while
to remove to green gum / varnish causes blockage of passageways and fuel needle valves to stick and remain open / or closed as well as making it run funny if it runs and flood as you mention
note do not soak any longer than 20 to 30 mins in a carb type cleaner solution as these can attack
non metallic parts and runin them , use compressed air to clean passageways and jets
blow some brake cleaner through them to , if the unit still floods after this , replace the fuel needle valve and seat
here is web site for parts list and parts ordering on line
its a god site take look
hope this helps
