Also, does the status light on the switch flash after a time? These are error codes. Go to the genset and remove the cover, there should be another start switch there.
It could be fuel filter, in a new one that would be debris in the fuel line. If you squeeze the fuel line into the carb and push the switch to prime you should feel the pump pushing the fuel.
Little more troubleshooting needed...
