Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Generally speaking, this is due to the safety system, pressing the switch bypasses, when switch is released if there is a problem it will shut down, such as oil sensor as an example. If you have a remote switch panel this can also be from one of them being stuck off/bad.
This can be further diagnosed if you plan on trying to repair yourself please let me know.
Thank you!
- Joe
