My husband had the same problem when he first tried it. It was just a matter of timing. Hold down the black button, pull up the bale handle, then release the black button. At first when it didn't start he released the bale handle which interrupted the sequence so he had to start over. The next time he released the black button after pulling up the bale handle and it started right up.
