If the unit is using a wet cell acid battery, it's possible that dirt mixed with hydrogen build up on top of the battery caused the second failure. The battery top should be kept clean and should be checked at least 4 times per year. Any stray ignition source can cause the hydrogen to explode, including lightning.
It's also possible that the battery float charger needs to be adjusted or possibly has a problem. Some float chargers are adjustable. The higher the charging rate the more off-gassing the battery will experience and increase the chance of a failure.
If the battery has exploded, the entire generator and housing should be cleaned (washed) thoroughly to remove any remaining battery electrolyte (acid).
Be careful - if you aren't comfortable working on this type of equipment, it's best to call a local dealer and find a service vendor.
