One last time I try the start button and I noticed the throttle mechanism is bouncing around from wide-open to closed. Maybe it does this as it's trying to start. So I simply hold the throttle wide-open and in a second or two the generator is running...

That's good news but it seemed rough in the first few moments so I just let it do it's thing for 10 minutes or so. After that, tried the microwave and AC - all seems good.

I have to go outside and fiddle with the throttle plates while I crank it the first time after it hasn't run in a while. Then I goose it a couple times to rev it up and all is well
