Question about Generac Guardian Electrical Supplies
Was oil filter changed as well ? This may result in low oil pressure shutdown until filter is filled with oil. Is there a sump oil level sensor that has stuck when oil was drained and now causing a no oil shutdown ? The battery indicator may not be real if the battery is ok.

First locate the oil pressure switch and see if you can bypass it,then see if it runs. If not check the fuel filter and fuel pump,make sure solonoid for fuel pump is kicking on.

First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

SOURCE: water in oil
Natural gas and Propane engines do create moisture in the engine because these are cold gases. Therefore, when the engine is done running, the engine is hot and whatever gas is left will condensate and the moisture will drop to the bottom of the engine or oil pan. If this is using these gases then it is normal what you are seeing.

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

Check the gas cap. There is a vent to allow air into the fuel tank as the fuel is drawn out. If this vent becomes clogged, a vacuum can be formed in the tank. This can prevent gas from flowing to the carburetor.
Listen carefully when you remove the cap. If you hear a "whoosh," there likely was a vacuum.
