Customer Question

Generac 04390-1
Will not start. Starter will kick on for a short time (1/4 second or so) then kick out. Holding down manual switch will cause this to cycle every couple seconds. Not enough time for engine to turn over one time.

In checking the control panel I found a wire going to the starter relay to be corroded and almost completely off. Repaired and generator is working properly.
Thanks for your time and trouble. Re-assuring to know where to go for expert advice.
