    Make sure the eco mode is off when starting - that can cause problems sometimes.

    Failing that, it might be worth having a look inside to see if there are any loose wires, maybe a short ahead of the circuit breaker?

    Try using the generator in plain mode, not eco mode ?    What is the load you are trying to power ?

    Probably the oil level is too low?

    My sense is also that it is related to the ECO mode. Do you turn to  ECO OFF  for  a minute or more before shutting the machine OFF?....  HONDA recommends it in the manual...It helps to 'flush' out the fuel channels

    Oil sensors do fail, I had a combination 4KW Gen and Lincoln Welder that I trouble shot for many months, even replaced the carburetor, turned out to be the oil sensor, it had plenty of oil, and in doing searches it turns out that is a common failure for that engine (B&S).

    I wonder how many thousands of these Japanese designed engines are in the landfills right now because of these hidden fuel filters.  
    I don't blame the engineering involved with these small Japanese designed engines......I blame the ethanol mandate.

    DO NOT USE gasoline with ethanol added in whatever amount in your small engines.

    If your engine cannot maintain proper RPM or surges then it could cause the problems your seeing.
