I primed, waited, primed, and checked the black fuel line tube at the connection on the front of generator to make sure gas was getting through, which it was. I even got Seafoam and treated some new gas, disconnected and pinched off the fuel line to the main gas tank, per a you tube video, and primed it like it showed.
Still won’t start. It cranks but will not turn over. The spark plug is only a year old and wasn’t running rough before.
I checked the air filter and it looks clean. Is there something I’m missing here? The Generator is only a year old due to an accident that damaged tge original, so it shouldn’t need new parts, right? I haven’t used it that much either, so no high hours either. I’m stumped! 🤔

Did you check for spark? I would have verified spark long before doing all that extra fuel work once I knew fuel was getting to the carb.
