Hello Ron. You may be able to call the Generac company and ask questions. Also be aware that if you have to take your Generac generator in for repair that you use a Generac authorized repair shop or it will void your warranty if you don't.
Hi Ron, are you able to contact the maker of the generator directly? Or they website? They might know exactly what is going on or others who own the same one might have experienced the same problem so may be able to help.
You can also check out the owners manual if you have one. You can Google the make and model number. Get videos, repair info, and even a manual
Here is their site. This would be a good place to start:

If it is a gasoline powered generator, I would check the carburetor. Especially if you have not used pure gas. It is the death of most carburetors.
thanks ,but Natural gas
Hi Ron. If you know the make and model numbers, you can go to You Tube and enter this info and they will be able to give you a step-by-step tutorial .
I own a generac and there is likely a code that matches your issue in the manual. You should prob start there.
If you didn’t put fuel stabilizer in it 6 months ago, it could be bad fuel.
I would try draining the fuel & using ISO HEET, as it’s one of two stabilizers that the University Of Nebraska tested as actually doing what it’s advertised to do.
thanks ,but its natural gas
try using high test gas
thanks, but its natural gas

I think that you should call an expert in this domain because they might know exactly what is going on or others who own the same one might have experienced the same problem so may be able to help. However, if it is a gasoline-powered generator, I would check the carburetor. Especially if you have not used pure gas. If your generator died and you want to buy a new one, I can advise the best generators which you can select on the internet what you need at the best price. I hope that I helped you.
