Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

Please provide more detail on the situation.

You push the start button, the starter engages and motor runs, but when you release the button the motor stops?
Is that the situation? Or another sequence?

Does the starter have start stop pushbutton sets?

What does the motor operate?

As much detail as possible will assist in the evaluation.

Let me know and we can continue,
Thanks
