Question about Electrical Supplies
Too much connected load. The 4000 watt rating is only for short term loads. Generally you should not exceed 80% of the rating for long term connected loads.

Power is not a linear function so the specified approximate 17 hour run time at 1/4 load will not give you over 6 hrs at 3500 watts.
A continous maximum 3500W load will consume approximately 1 gallon/hour.
You have to manage your load and more importantly not overload the unit as it will shorten the life expectancy.

I have to leave a comment for cfa6094. Your pretty good at flexing your cyber muscles. I am a service tech in the repair field and deal with people like you all the time. If you are the owner of the equipment you should properly maintain your equipment. Sounds like you are not very organized. Sound more like crises management to me. Is mrfixit the only person you asked about this problem? One more thing, sound like you are a bit of a procrastinator to me. LOOK AT ME NO SPELL CHECK!

Is fuel actually leaking from the bottom of the bowl, or is leaking out the air filter and running down to the bowl?
If the former, then your bowl bolt's gasket has likely deteriorated. This would allow fuel to run down the bolt itself. Note that some carburetors will have a fuel shutoff solenoid (to the engine, not to the carburetor) that holds the bowl on, rather than a bolt. There will still be a gasket though. Turn fuel off before trying to service.
If fuel is running out from inside the carburetor (through air cleaner, etc), then you have a float / needle that is stuck. This is quite common after a small engine has been in storage and fuel was left in the carburetor. The residue causes the float to stick to the bottom. Turn the fuel off, undo the bolt that holds the bowl on, and carefully remove the carburetor bowl. Use a can of carburetor and choke cleaner to spray out the "gunk" in the bowl, spray off the float, and then reassemble. If it still leaks, then your needle seat will need to be replaced as well.

need to take the recoil off the engine and check for a broken recoil spring, depending on the engine if it is a honda, they sell a replacement recoil unit, anything else and you will have to get creative....try tapping on the recoil with your palm and see if it trys to rewind, if no resistance or movement when bumping is a good indicator of a broken recoil spring....
