Yep!
This Champion only started first pull when I bought it in summer. Once it g
ot colder in fall cud never get it going. After trying it a few more times  
throughout fall and into winter, same thing except for one time took spark  
plug out, poured in a little gas, and second effort like this, she went. Bu
t I didnt want to do that every time. Saw the John T post and tried it (see
med logical) and no problems now. Switch off for 2 pulls and waiting 20 sec
onds after switch on and then 3rd pull works!

My 3000 watt champion starts OK when I'm testing it but in the dark at
27F with 7" of snow,  I take starting fluid and tools to remove the
air cleaner - just in case...

I see this is an old thread, but the steps above really helped me to be able to start my fairly new generator consistently.

Have you checked the plug gap?
Also check the choke to see if it is closing enough.
