Troubleshooting 4582 Guardian Ultra Source
Hello every one,
My problem has started with the starter switch. I can get it started but I have to do several things to do so. My question is can the starter switch cause the fuel shut off solenoid not to open, or the spark plugs to lose spark?
If I take the wire lose that is connected to the housing and remove the cylinder and spring from the fuel shut off solenoid then jump the poles on the starter and solenoid it will start right up.
(But) I don't won't to do this, I just want to push the button. If the switch does not cause these symptoms what else could it be. Or can the pcb cause the switch not to work?
It's a 2004 model 4582 15,000 watt guardian ultra source portable generator

3. Using the chart below ohm out the Start-Run-Stop Switch.
Connect one meter test lead to one terminal and the other meter
test lead to the other terminal. With meter leads connected activate
the switch to Start, Stop or Run and follow the chart.
4. Reconnect all wires to the switch.
