From what i can see looking at the wiring diagram there is a relay made by guardian electric "A410-3666186-151" that takes 120 ac signal to activate a 12 volt relay. That keeps fuel solenoid open.This relay is a 12 pin so I'm not sure how to test it and i have had no luck locating it on the great world wide web.
John,
If you hold the fuel solenoid in, will the generator stay running? If so when you do that are you getting 120 VAC and is the cooling fan running?
