I have purchased 3 of these duromax generators from return pallets all 3 had the same problem the spark plug wire was broke on all 3. With the xp4400E you can either repair the wire yourself or order a new one problem is the coil is connected to it. Local shop wanted $70 i think it was around $15 on amazon .

SOURCE: Brand new Generator not working

Take it back where you bought it with the sales receipt. Just about everything has at least a one year warranty, Anything that's well built should last AT LEAST one or two years. As long as it wasn't submerged, abused or dumped off the tailgate of a truck they should make it right for you.

SOURCE: electric start will not work

You should remove the battery and charge it up outside the machine then take it to your local auto parts store where they will load test it for free. It must be fully charged to test. Most of the time those small batteries are dead due to the heat produced in the machine. These batteries only run about $30 or less usually.

Note: BEFORE CHARGING if the battery is not sealed ensure the battery water level is good (no exposed plates, usually the water is about 1 1/2" below the top of the holes). Use pure bottled water if you need to add water.

SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Electric Start Won't Engage

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

the generator is not big enough to run what you want
it needs to be 3500w minimum or 4.5w to be safe
although it is stated at 2500 watts , in fact that is the peak load on electric motor start up and its continuous rating will be around 1.8 watts
all of this is clearly stated on the specs plate on the generator

I have a Generac 6500E. The electric start turns over the engine but will not start. Pull start works fine

If the pull start works, but the electric start doesn't try the following. Either give the battery on the generator a full charge, and if after a full charge it doesn't start, get a new battery.

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.
