Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
What is the actual model number of the genset?
Is this a single click as you press the start button, or a continuous rapid clicking?

had rather do this on line where I can print it out I am a 100% disabled vet with one arm right now and need the time to read the generator will start by pulling the start line
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
if this is not going to work for you please let me lnow
Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 11 months ago
it will work.
The problem is I am at work right now.
I work 2 day jobs, and normally help on Just Answer in the evenings.
But when things are going good at work, I can usually take a few questions at work.
Things were going good a lottle while ago, but it has hit the fan. I am trying, but I may be too busy until this evening.
In the meantime, use a meter to measure battery voltage, both while sitting, and while pressing the start button.
Then test the voltage coming out of the starter solenoid while pressing the start button.
What are these 3 voltages?
I will get back to you as soon as I can.
