problem with generator

    I bought a SIP Medusa T951 750w 2-Stroke Petrol Generator 2 years ago. It worked well for the first 5 or 6 times. After that it became more difficult to start and eventually it would not start at all. Put it back in the shed and forgot about it until about 2 months ago. I tried to start it again with clean fuel and new plug but to no avail. The plug does spark. I came to the conclusion it was the carburetor so I bought a new one, installed it and the engine started, but after two uses it became more difficult to start and eventually it would not start at all. I tried spraying carburetor cleaner into the carburetor and it would start but only for a few seconds. Any ideas what could be wrong?
