The generator should be attached to the gentran switch box then started. Once started, then follow instructions for that system to swich to generator power. Some setups may have their own initiating order, it is important to obtain the correct instructions from your manufacturer and keep them where you can find them in a hurry.
I hope you don't need it too often:)

Can not start generator with remote switch or with switch on gernerator

The problem is the control board if neither the remote or local swiych will work. Assuming the board is plugged in correctly and proper battery voltage is present. I would NOT recommend jumping the solenoid !

Engine runs on half choke

You probably have some buildup in the carburetor, because tillers are gernerally used seasonally it leaves plenty of opportunities for buildup to occur . Also, you should inspect throttle cables and linkage to insure that everything intact.

Gernerator wasn't used over a year, tried to start and can not pull cord. Checked the oil and there is gas in it?

The rings are stuck to the cylinder wall. Remove spark plug and spray some pb blaster in the hole.
3 or 4 seconds worth. Let sit a day then try. If no go repete. You can pry on the flywheel if yiu know where not to. Take your time Rushing it may brake the rings.

We have a jaguar xj6 sports 12 years old,

Possibile ignition control module problem Check for spark when problem occurs No spark.. Follow wires from distributor to icm box. Open box and you will find a gerneral motors ignition module. Remove module and have tested at local parts store. Replace if bad. Jaguar wants over $300.00 for IGNITION AMPLIFIER UNIT. You should get gm module for under 50 bucks.

Generator will not generate electricity.

I assume it is a hand start genset. The most common problem if it has been sat for a while is rust on the ignition timing flywheel. If you take the pullcord housing off (recoil) then you will see a big flywheel with what can only be described as a big forked prong with a couple of wires on it. This flywheel should be stainless steel and rusts when sat around for a while without use. Its job is to complete the circuit to the spark plug every time the flywheel passes the forked prong at a given spot on the flywheel, the faster the wheel turns the faster the spark hence the engine runs quicker. Clean the rust off with a releasing agent (wd 40) hey presto!!!!!!!!!!!
