Question about Electrical Supplies
Don't adjust. If it ran once before there is never a reason to adjust a carburetor. Take it off and clean it, it's gummed up with the evils of Ethanol Gas

Sounds like you need to clean the carb ports, lines, jets, etc... purchase a carb spray cleaner with a tube to place on the spray head (Berryman's Chemtool B-12 is awesome). Take the carb loose from the generator, and remove the bowl, needle valve and spray carb cleaner thru all the holes, lines in the carb. Reinstall complete with air cleaner and retry... also if the gas is old, drain and replace with new...

I've had many small engines that did similar. Carb problem. Clean it, same problem. I usually end up buying an oem carb on ebay when it comes up cheap. Read up on do's and dont's of small engines and gasoline. If you have a carb problem, if your going to rebuild it, everything must be new. do the whole thing. If it doesnt work, buy a new one. same price as a good repair shop to do it and you get new. don't put crappy ethanol gas in any small motor and let it sit. the ethanol causes varnish, eats at the plastic in the hose, and plastics in the tank... if you change the carb, or get the mower going again....You must take the tank off, wash out with soap and water, (clean the shutoff valve or filter screens if any in there) blow out with airgun. take the gas hose to carb off and throw it in the garbage.. go to auto store and buy 1 foot of hose.. very cheap. now put it back together and you have a nice system ! Ask boaters where the non ethanol gas stations are. they'll usually have a pump off to the side. With any gas, say your storing any motor with gas in the tank, put sta-bil regular one in. not much. since one medium size bottle with the auto measure 1 oz. thing on top can treat a whole cars gas tank... (or 1oz /per 5 gallons for cleaning). after putting it in, run the motor a little to get that stabil gas in there, then store it for a year with no problem. any gas in a can, I would dump out, wash with soap and water, blow out, and use non ethanol gas, treat if its sitting in there for a few months or more without being refreshed. Also there is "Old Gas." cheap gas stations buy older gas off the market by auction. A quality engine doesnt need this either. good fresh gas, treated if stagnant. Shell, Texaco etc are good. -----common problem i see is running sputtering, i usually just pull the bowl off the bottom of carb, unscrew main jet, and i'll be amazed if theres not some small piece of dirt in there. look through it with a light behind it.. you'll see the dirt if its in there.
