The fuel solenoid is a three wire solenoid. It has two internal coils, a large coil that pulls the solenoid for start, and a small that has to hold the solenoid for run.

Solenoid has to be adjusted so it goes the full travel and bottoms out. If the solenoid does not bottom , the large coil stays energized and will burn up.
