Brand New, Out-of-the-box will not start!
I purchased this generator on 12/7/04 from Home Depot and have never put oil or gas in it...thus never tried to start it until today. The oil is full and overflowing per the instructions, gas is fresh but it doesn't appear to be getting gas. I removed the air filter and sprayed in starter fluid which got the unit to turn over but once that gas was exhausted (15 seconds) it died again. Has anybody ever had this problem? How did you resolve this? The thing is brand, spanking new!!!! Gary Q
