Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi there my name is don i will try to help you on this
does the generator shut off when you us the switch ?
it does however sound like the switch the way you are describing it
put in a jumper wire and see if it stays running
hi there thanks for that great information
once running it should bre supplying power to the switch as the contacts should be closed now so no break in the circuit
i would say that there is a problem between the run and start cycle similar to your vehicle ignition
in this case i believe the rocker switch is indeed pooched
but do let me know please
k sounds good have a great christmas and talk to you soon
