Look right in the center of the GFCI.
Turn the power switch on. This unit is designed to search and eject the CD when the power is connected, then it goes to OFF. Push the SOURCE button it should work. Hope this helps.
SUBURA COLEMAN GENERATOR RUNS FINE..IT RAN OUT OF GAS AND MY UNCLE FILLED IT UP AND RESTARTED IT..HOWEVER HE LEFT EVERYTHING PLUGGED..LATER ON, WE NOTICED IT STOPPED SENDING ELECTICAL CURRENT TO THE PLUGS..DOES IT HAVE A FUSE OR DID SOMETHING POSSIBLE BURN OUT...HAVE NOT HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE THE COVER OFF TO SEE
Power to the switch? If so disconnect the battery replace the switch.
It possibly could be the Brushes in the generator just wore out and need to be replaced.
Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...
A few things to take a look at:
1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.
2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.
3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.
4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.
5) Choke not working as it should
6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.
