I have an
Yamaha YG6600DE generator and installed a snorkel kit around a year and a half ago. It's been running like a champ until today. I can't get it started unless I hold the primer button in. I tried turning the load block valve in and out to no avail. The propane tank is around 3/4 full. What in the heck happened?

I have no experience with the snorkel but have heard many issues with them on this website. Have you checked to see if the gasket portion of the snorkel deteriorated; thus creating a vacuum leak? I had the CIC performed on my carburetor and I've had no issues at all running on NG or gasoline with and without a load.
