Ensure choke is turned on while starting.
Ensure spark lead is fully pushed onto plug.
Remove spark plug and check there is a spark by keeping spark plug against body of engine and cranking engine, if no spark check there are no broken wires in ignition circuit.
Turn off gas tap if present. Remove the float bowl while holding a container under it to collect any gas. Turn on tap and check the fuel flows freely.
Check the air filter is clean. If it has foam elements these can be washed with warm water and detergent, rinsed and then oiled with a teaspoon of oil evenly distributed through the foam.

We have a Briggs & Stratton Elite Series 5500 watt 8200 starting watt generator, it locked up on us last winter & we can't find out why, what can we do


If the engine is locked, it could be any one of several things. Most are rather expensive, like: seized due to no oil; broken rod; bad valve, etc. An engine mechanic is going to have to troubleshoot it for you.

Generator is burning oil and choking out


You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
