Have somone hold the start button while you measure the voltage across the battery. If it is less than 11 volts, then the battery is bad.

Over crank

Over crank is just that, cranking and cranking for a timed period without a run signal. Make sure the fuel solenoid is opening and you have the correct gas pressure. Too much pressure can stop it opening. Then check you have a spark at the plugs, this will eliminate ignition, and you can re-focus on the fuel system. You didn't say it was LP or Nat gas

Generac xg10000e won't start

Very annoying is the word. In order for many on todays small engines to pass EPA regulations, the carburetor is set very lean. This makes them very hard to get started and warmed up. Once warm, most will run OK .
Try choking a little 'til it is warmed up and running smoothly. Some have an adjustable main jet that can be opened a little to overcome this problem.
Some are not adjustable and some have a small plastic cap over the adjusting screw. The plastic cap is supposed to be a tamper proof thing.
If you still have trouble take it to the local small engine man. I am sure he has the cure or marbe he can adjust under warranty.
Hope this helps. Robert

Generac NP 50G wont crank

Measure voltage drop across the far ends of the fuse wiring (should measure zero), as one of the wires or it's connection to either end of the fuse may be open. Check the battery negative grounding connection at the frame. If all ok, you may need to find a wiring diagram for the machine. Does this unit have a low-oil-level switch which will kill the engine if set?
