Eu3000 generator will not start

My eu3000 will not start. It was running fine no problems. Then we added new fuel it started good but very shortly it started to labor it sounded like it was going to die. We shut it off and now it will not start. It rolls over but will start. We checked the fuel, cleaned air filter, checked spark plug, cleaned the carb. We have spark in the plug but will not start.

If it was running fine before and then died after you added fuel I would suspect the fuel was dirty or contaminated. I would completely empty the fuel tank and fuel lines and disassemble and clean the carburetor. I can't remember if there is a fuel filter between the tank and carburetor but if there is one you might get away with replacing it and not have to pull the carburetor. Then go get some new, fresh fuel and try it again.
