My Troy Bilt XP 7000 generator electric start stopped working

When I went to do my monthly maintenance run on the generator, the electric start made a short noise when I first hit the switch, and no response after that. The engine did start with the pull starter. After it cooled back down I tried the electric start again with no response. I checked the battery, and it is fully charged (fairly new battery). Put my meter across the starter terminals, tried the starter switch and it showed no power. Is there anything else I should be checking before I replace the starter switch?

The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.

Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.

Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

SOURCE: Hard to start

You have all the symptoms of a low voltage condition in the battery, Kragen and other parts stores like it will test your battery and charging system (alternator) for free, but it is pretty safe to say the battery is toast. Don't reject this solution without the test being done, I think you will find I am right, low battery voltage can cause trouble codes to be set and low fuel pressure to name a few..

Sounds like you have a problem with your fuel injectors, either they are working to much or not enough once they get warm....

Take it to a shop ant tell them you want the injectors tested.

2009 chevy express van 6.0 gas 1 ton. It runs perfect until you climb above 7000-plus feet then in starts losing power and eventually stops running. It will start after cooling down climbs a little further...


i read about this in popular mechanics, because of the thinning air the map sensor doesn't read enough vacuum and leans the fuel mixture back, one of the solutions is to run higher octane fuel, try contacting popular mechanics automotive dept, to see if there is any other cure
hope this helps

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.
