How do I fix my generator when I get gas in my oil?

This comes from gas getting from the carb when the engine is stopped. The carb will need a good cleaning. Kawasaki has vent tubes just to avoid this when air venting gets plugged. Just saying. ..

Check the oil level, if oil level is ok, check the cooler for cleanliness, if cooler is clean, check the thermal valve by measuring the temperatures going in and coming out of valve. The final thing would be the air-end (pump). has lost it clearances.

I have a worthington tow behind compressor, and I have a ton of oil mixing in with the air, it makes a huge mess. I have replaced the filter, any other suggestions

you stated you replaced the filter.Was it the separator filter? the separator filter is located inside the separator tank. the separator tank is where you add oil. If this filter is bad it will cause oil and air to mix and get into the air. Also there is a 1/4 inch line that comes from the top of the tank . this line has an orffice in it If the orffice plugs oil can carry over into the air.

Is there a spark? If yes, then the fuel supply is blocked, either in the tank, hose, or carburetor. Enough fuel gets by to run a small load, but a bigger load starves it of fuel. The empty carb bowl makes it hard to start until enough fuel gets into the bowl. Clean the whole fuel system and all should be well. Try turning in all the carb adjustment screws then backing them off to their original positions, that may unclog something before you have to tear the thing down.

Use 40:1 fuel mix using modern synthetic saw oil and mix it in it's own can. Be sure to shake the can thoroughly just before refueling each time. Check with a home center, hardware store, or saw dealer for the correct plug--set the gap at 0.020". Check the manual dealers on the web for a manual. Hope this helps!
