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.

This sounds like the timing is off. Remove the spark plug and pull the cord to see if there is less tension. If there is less tension then you know that the pull cord is fine. Do a compression check on the cylinder, it should be around 100psi. Remove the valve cover and check to see if valves are moving when your pulling the cord. The valves could have came off the rockers.

There really is not much you can do without voiding your warranty. This may be something simple like a connector that vibrated loose inside the control panel. (Alternator to contol panel inter-connect) There could also be a wire lying loose that was not connected. Open the control panel... and look for anything obviously out of place. DO NOT do anything else. After that your stuck with the warranty process of Briggs and Stratton.
When your at a B & S service / repair point... (store front)
Things to note .
1. Tell servicer unit is for PRIVATE USE (There is no warranty for commercial use)
2. Have proof of purchase in hand otherwise they will use the MFG date as the start point of the warranty. Many generators sit in a warehouse or on the shelf long past an implied warranty (date of mfg) Bottom line you need to have your sales slip.
There are several things I could have you do but... as the consumer the only thing you can do is perform an inspection. By opening the control panel you need to tell the servicer the only thing you did was a VISUAL Inspection...... Anything else will void your warranty.
So.. look for any obviously loose parts or or connectors. After that sadly your stuck with dealing with warranty service.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
