I just bought a brand new 7000 watt black max generator from sams club due to the storm on the east coast. I followed all their directions to set up. Fueled it up, made sure gas was on and it won't start. Checked the spark plug and it sparks, fuel is getting to the carb float bowl. I can get it to start using starting fluid but will not stay running by itself. What am I forgetting?

being brand new and just filled with oil it is possible that the float that reads low oil is stuck so shake the machine to make the float raise.
The feature of low oil switch is to stop starting with genuine low oil.
Hope that solves your problem.
