If your voltmeter is registering the 240v prior putting in the twist-lock plug then your have a crossed wire plug or there is a problem with the load.

If not reading the correct voltage then you have problem with the generator's alternator. Example bad regulator or a shorted main winding.

This comes from gas getting from the carb when the engine is stopped. The carb will need a good cleaning. Kawasaki has vent tubes just to avoid this when air venting gets plugged. Just saying. ..

Did you leave any gas in it as it was being stored. If so then your probably looking at dirt or varnish in the carb. It this is the case you will need to taske the carb apart and spray the inside with some carb cleaner then make sure to wipe it all out. Next time you store your generator make sure that you compleatly drain all of the fuel. If not then be sure to add some gas stabilizer.

Good luck,

It should work. The load is less than 8 amps and the supply a good 15 amps.
Try starting the fan before lowering the cooling. This prevents all three motors in the ac from staying at the same time.
Otherwise, there is a problem with the equipment.

I assume that the generator has an electric starter and if not, a manual pull to start cord.
Here is a few things you need to check

1* Check your fuel filter
2* Check ignition with an ignition tester or remove plug to verify spark and if you have iginition ...
3* check carburator if it has one. Carburetors are inexpensive and can be ordered on line at reasonable price.
4*Check your oil level and your pressure switch which may be interlocked with the ignition system; maybe, check it anyway.
5* lastly, ignition coil as stated before, test it
