Is there a LOP/LOP switch and location?
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 8 months ago
Most do not have them, but if it is equipped, it will be near the oil drain spot and there will be either 1 or 2 wires going to it. Most of the smaller units do not have one but it is worth checking for sure

Generator stops when start/stop switch is released. Ruled out fuel problem and now LOP/LOL switch. Anything left except no or low voltage output?
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 8 months ago
May have a faulty start/stop switch

Same thing with both gen and remote switches. Also, changed spark plug.

You could have a bad relay or circuit board on this as well that would cause this issue.

Is the voltage regulator attached to the circuit board?
Technician: JohnF2015, Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes, it is. If the genset is not producing any voltage then when you release the starter switch you have no voltage to keep all of the relays engaged which will cause the unit to die almost instantly upon releasing the start switch. It could be as simple as a bad relay that is not staying engaged or it could be worst case the genset not producing any voltage which would cause this problem.
