May be much quicker however to pull the cap and take it to your local Grainger outlet for a generic replacement (alco check ebay or any refrigeration supply house). Test the cap with meter set to uf but before test, short out the tabs to drain charge. If you do not have meter for test, take cap to motor repair shop for free test(or grainger or refrig. supply).
The capacitor should have an mfd /uf rating printed on the part along with a voltage rating. You can use same or greater voltage rating however the higher voltage cap may be larger in size (better quality). The mfd rating should be within + or - 5 percent of printed rating.
Heat kills caps so they should be placed where they will get plenty of cool air. Watch the duty cycle rating of your unit to prevent overheating parts.
Many generators are overstated as to their capacity. I would recommend limiting the output to about 75 percent of rated capacity and try not to use the generator for powering large air compressors or large motors connected to long extension cords. Good luck

If your battery is in good condition (check this one first, take it to your nearest autozone they'd do it for free) then you need to replace the voltage regulator, this one is located on the back of the unit under the back cover of the main engine, it looks like a black rectangle with two cables. For teh second problem, check your fine voltage button and increase it as needed until the rod does not stick to the metal, but not higher enough to pierce or burn thru it.

Yes, that's exactly the issue. You should run it once a month to avoid this. Generators can't sit for a while or they will loose the charge that excites the coils for producing power

Chemical Earthing Electrodes help in meeting all kinds of earthing and grounding needs for industrial and residential purposes.

Gmax Chemical Earthing Electrode consists of the main earth electrode encapsulated within another pipe filled with highly conductive compound. gmax main earth electrode thus protected by the presence of the conductive compound and the outer pipe last beyond a normal GI pipe electrode. Highly conductive property of the compound facilitates the fault current to immediately discharge through the outer pipe to the surrounding area.
Gmax whole assembly of the Chemical Earthing Electrode is then installed in a bore made in the earth and the space around is filled by scientifically developed earth enhancing compound.

With an increase proportion of technology, we are manufacturing and supplying Chemical Earthing Electrode.

The correct current, or amperage, setting primarily depends on the diameter and type of electrode selected. For example, a 1/8-inch 6010 rod runs well from 75 to 125 amps, while a 5/32-inch 7018 rod welds at currents up to 220 amps. The side of the electrode box usually indicates operating ranges. Select an amperage based on the material thickness, welding position (about 15 percent less heat for overhead work compared to a flat weld) and observation of the finished weld. Most new welding machines have a permanent label that recommends amperage settings for a variety of electrodes and material thicknesses.

could be a problem with the ground connection.

adjust the wire feed

Matco would be a possible source.

Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.
I think if will be better if you read the basics of welding with MIG machines with an owner's manual. Check the link and go to section B-7.

seems to be Lincoln Electric from my searching. Plus mentioned in this old Fixya post.
