ELECTRICIAN IN WI, TO LOOK AT A STANDBY GEN, THAT DID NOT

Customer Question

MY NAME IS***** WI, I AM GOING TO LOOK AT A STANDBY GEN, THAT DID NOT START WHEN POWER LOSS LAST WEEK. I WAS CALLED TO LOOK AT THE GEN THAT DID NOT START. 7 AMP FUSE WAS GOOD, I HIT MANUAL ON THE ROCKER SW. AND GEN STARTED BUT DID NOT THROW TRANSFER SW. I MANUALLY THROW T-SW. WITH LITTLE YELLOW HANDLE SUPPLIED. GEN DID SHUT OFF WHEN POWER CAME BACK ON LINE.
IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN CHECK / TEST TO SEE IF THE GEN WILL START AND T-SW. WILL ENGAGE
