I'm assuming the key ignition switch has been replaced with a new one. If this didn't correct the problem then the problem could be in the STARTER RELAY stuck in the 'on' position, or in the STARTER SOLENOID switch (located on the starter motor ) stuck in the 'on' position.

The STARTER RELAY should be located around or in a POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX . After locating the STARTER RELAY and gaining access to it, try hooking your charger or jumper cables, whatever way you want to power the battery to make the starter turn over, then while the motor is turning over then pull the STARTER RELAY out and see if that stops it from turning.

If it does then the STARTER RELAY is probably at fault and needs to be relaced. It the motor continues to turn over then the problem is more than likely the STARTER SOLENOID sticking in the 'on' position, and will need to be replaced. That should take care of the starter problem.

Next will be the 'not starting problem'. That could be fuel delivery, spark plugs, coil or ignition control unit. Would be so much more helpful to include date and make of an appliance when seeking help.

I have seen this happen in cars- the problem is most likel the ignition unit -they do not spend a lot of money on them in production. So here is what is happening . When you are putting key in and out metal filings are being deposited inside unit- this is now causing a short and draining batteries. Start here.This happened with cars a few years ago and they were catching fire in driveways.Call dealer and get replacement ignition- should be cheap fix. Good luck.

Try this again. Starter works fine, checked fuel line,sprk plg and cln carb, just doesnt fire


Try checking your oil sensor. These are common problem areas that will shut your generator down, and prevent it from starting.

If my generator shut off due to low lubricant will it reset automatically? If not is there a reset valve/button?


The pull cord is like a starter on a car (separate from the motor/engine). If the pull cord will not turn it could be because the motor/engine is seized.

Add electric start to dg7000 generator by Dewalt


This is really not an option. The engine would need a starter motor and battery and starting key switch. You will probably have to replace the unit with an electric start option.
