Hey guys wondering if anyone has had this issue. My inverter generator will no longer start ( turn over) when pressing the electric start button. It will however start up with no problem with the pull cord. I check the battery and it's fine. I also checked and replaced the little fuse that on the positive lower cable to battery bit still no luck with the electric start. I even replace the start button with a new one. Thanks for any help.

How did you determine that the battery is fine? How old is the battery? Do you put it on a trickle charger regularly? It has to be at least 12.6 volts or it is questionable. Dutchy

Battery is brand new sorry should have also mentioned that. Battery was dead so I at first thought that might be the issue but still no luck even with the new battery

jump the sol to see if the sol and starter is good.
and yes it can be a bad start switch.
a test light and a meter will help you on this repair.
make sure the new battery is charged at least for 2 days!
most of them are not charged to full when you buy them.

Yes let is charge for a few days and I did replace the switch with a new one. As well I jumped the solenoid and it started no problem. I will have a look again with a light tester and go from there. Thank you

yea a test light is a good plan...
it will load it a bit in case you have a dirty weak switch or bad wire.
