The float may not be adjusted properly, or one of the jsets is still clogged.

The unit should have a pop out fuse or set of fuses.
If you are drawing too much currant from the unit, it will shut down. If you plug in a simple 100Watt light and test the unit and see if it stops generating currant.
Max is only 5500.
You may also have shutoff thermo sensiors, if the caseing of the generator runs too hot or low on oil, it will shut unit down.
Keep in mind, if you have a shut off valve, turn the shut off valve, closing the fuel supply while running.
This will remove all gas from the bowl and not spoil after setting for long periods of time.
Same with oil, it will do damage to the engine if it just sets for long periods.

Field Flashing of Portable Generators
This tip comes from the Briggs & Stratton Customer Education
Department. As an alternative to flashing a rotor winding with a
battery applied to the brushes, an electric drill may be used. Follow
these steps to flash the generator:
The reason this works is because the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backwards. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor windings, which is fed back through the trigger, cord and into the generators receptacle. From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field, which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor winding the rotor has been flashed.
If flashing the field does not make the generator work, you may have additional problems, besides a lack of magnetism in the rotor. Further testing will be needed. Hopefully, this will give a simple way to field flash your generator if needed - Bruce Perrault

if it's flooding the float may have a tiny hole which makes it not float as well and too much fuel will stall the engine...If it's not getting enough fuel to keep running then its usually because of a small piece of dirt blocking a hole..under the carb there should be a brass bolt...take that off and check that the two side holes are clear...then check the center orifice and blow it out...there is also a tiny little hole up near where the threads start...use a wire from a wire brush to make sure its clean....also clean out the bowl and then reassemble...this works 90% of the time for me

SOURCE: What kind of oil do
You can use numerous engine oils. 10W - 40, 30W Detergent, 30W Non detergent (SAE)
The best all around above 40 deg F and below 100 F oil to use is a 30W detergent oil. Brand name does NOT matter. Oil level should be checked EACH time you add fuel. Change oil any time the oil appears Dark BLACK when checked regardless of the hour intervals. .
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
