Hi Jeffrey-
I found a youtube video regarding troubleshooting a generator with no spark.

Hope this helps.

I also found a link for the Ryobi Ryi 2300BT Owners Manual.

Without more information, the best guess is that the piston is probably seized in the cylinder, this will not fix itself by adding oil now. It likely needs a new piston and/or rings and/or cylinder or shortblock assembly. You can google your model number for sources of repair parts. Depends what you find when you disassemble it, if you can get the piston out you may be lucky to get by with a new set of rings and honing the cylinder.
But it will be a batch of work for a $200 blower. May be worth it if you can do it yourself and the parts arent too much. Certainly a shop couldn't do it for less than the replacement price of the whole blower.

Use long-nosed pliers to remove the washer from the shaft.

While applying steady upward pressure to the flywheel, firmly strike the end of the shaft with a rubber mallet until the flywheel breaks free. Several blows from the mallet may be necessary to free the flywheel from the engine assembly.

Stating the obvious it is running too lean on the mixture screws, you may well need a special tool to do this, but you need to open ( anti clockwise ) the H screw on the carb about 10 minutes on a clock face, this will richen the mixture and aid acceleration.

Sounds like a fuel problem - have you tried using partial choke? At least, this might verify that you just have a fuel problem. The 4-stroke is not as temporemental as the 2-stroke, but worth checking a few simple things : Is there an obstruction in the fuel supply ? Is the fuel tank supposed to be vented - if so, is the vent blocked ? Is there some dirt in the fuel, leading to a blocked jet in the carburetor ? - if so, drain/empty the carburetor, clean sediment & ensure all jets are clear and refill whole system with clean fresh fuel : If the carburetor or any part of it is loose, there might well be an Induction air-leak ( which could impair the engine's intake of fuel ) : And (of course ) - Is the spark-plug badly "gapped" or fouled ? Try to isolate and eradicate in a methodical way, good luck !

This is just the return to tank pipe, it does not need to be in the fuel, just in the tank far enough not to leak out the top.

Back to basics, remove the spark plug, lay on its side against a metal part of the machine ( away from the plug hole ) crank the engine, do you have a spark at the plug? if yes then we more that likely have a fuel issue, if no spark the ignition unit is bad ( make sure the switch is on ) if you have a spark re fit the plug, crank the engine with the choke on, remove the plug again is the tip wet? if no there is no fuel to the engine, remove the fuel filter from inside the fuel tank and replace with new, try again, if still no fuel to the plug a carb strip and clean will be required, for the time it takes it is well worth removing the muffler and check the condition of the piston face through the open port, any signs of scuffing and the machine has seized and will require further investigation.
