Generator troubles

I went to pick up the generator.  It wouldn’t start while in the shop.  He didn’t charge me anything.  I tried to pay him something.  I know he did work on it, but he wouldn’t take it.  Said he never wanted to work on it again.

I’ll tinker with it some more tonight and if I can’t get it started I’ll just buy another one.  I’ve had starting problems with this one for years.  The next one will have at least 1200 Watts of power, double my current generator capacity.
