so, to provide detail that may have been missed previously... if you run the gen out of gas while loaded, you can de-energize the generator coil, 90% of the time, this will be the problem, its not a $2 part but can cause problems, the gen will still run but you'll have zero output, sometimes you'll need to take it to a shop and have them re-energize it, but often you can do this yourself by plugging in a corded drill and spinning the chuck by hand, this will basically make the drill act as a very low power generator, enough to re-energize the coil, and using a variable speed drill is probably more effective because once you get a small mount of power in to the coil, then you run a low drain device, this will encourage the coils to re-charge.

Lots of youtube videos, search generator coil renergize.

Not sure if this is a thing on inverter gens, seems like its mostly oldschool construction gens.

Thanks for the good words. Unfortunately some posters believe you owe them something. And in the current case seems unable to comprehend the wording of the owner's manual.

Btw, nice first name Face With Tears Of Joy
You're welcome Sir! I must commend you on yours as well. LOL! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

yeah i called in, took them half an hour because the supervisor had to approve it and he was in a meeting, but he did it with the 10%
Thanks for this. I ordered this from HD. Total cost with tax after 10% PM: $610.

The online rep checked Costco's site to confirm that it was identical (no supervisor's approval needed) and quickly placed the order for me.
This will be my 4th Firman generator, They are amazing, with unbeatable 3yr wty.
