I'm hoping to find a cause and solution.
EU7000is start button will not start the generator. The pull start does, and generator performs fine.
Initially when the problem began, the push button was intermittent. It would take multiple pushes to make contact. It eventually got to the point where I had to find the sweet spot by randomly pushing on different parts of the button. Then it failed. For now the Pull Start will suffice. After a 6 hour run, being started via Pull Start, the Push Button still fails despite Batt Voltage being 12.4. Manual claims it only needs 12.2 volts to start.
Could the issue be the battery? And, what voltage threshold would trigger the cause?
I appreciate any knowledge on this?
Thank You

Battery should read 12 6 volts or it’s questionable. If lower the voltage will drop well below 12.2 to start the engine. Check battery after 24 hours of sleep. If it’s low it’s probably done. If it’s the switch just replace it. Good practice is battery trickle charge regularly. Dutchy
