Welcome to the forums.

I get the feeling that you are not here in the States.

A 3-1/2 hp generator is pretty small.
By gas kit installed.....do you mean the propane/natural gas kit ?

You mentioned that you checked the oil level, so I assume that you either know or assume that it has an oil monitor. Keep in mind though that simply having it full of oil may not be enough, as condensation in the oil can cause foaming, which can still cause the monitor to shut the engine off.
