Question about Briggs & Stratton Power Products 5,550 Watt Portable Generator #30241
STOP WHERE YOU ARE!!!
Look at the low oil light when trying to start. If its flickering you found the problem.
Disconnect the low oil level connector at the base of the motor. Then try to start the motor.
This unit is notorious for low oil shut down.
I wasted hours looking for spark.
BUT I forgot the simplist thing.

As for the second and third question about not having spark,,,you must take off the cover where the pull start rope is,,inside that is a flywheel,,,the magnito is most likely gone bad,,,simple to replace,,,unscrew the two screws and take into a small engine shop and get another one,,,there are many different size magnitos but most are the same..before removing the bad magnito,,,make sure you note the gap between the flywheel and the magnito as this must be replaced at the same distance ,,all in all ,,,its about a half our job at most if you are just half way mechanically inclinded.
