My Troy Bilt XP 7000 generator electric start stopped working

When I went to do my monthly maintenance run on the generator, the electric start made a short noise when I first hit the switch, and no response after that. The engine did start with the pull starter. After it cooled back down I tried the electric start again with no response. I checked the battery, and it is fully charged (fairly new battery). Put my meter across the starter terminals, tried the starter switch and it showed no power. Is there anything else I should be checking before I replace the starter switch?

The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.

Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.

Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

SOURCE: Hard to start

You have all the symptoms of a low voltage condition in the battery, Kragen and other parts stores like it will test your battery and charging system (alternator) for free, but it is pretty safe to say the battery is toast. Don't reject this solution without the test being done, I think you will find I am right, low battery voltage can cause trouble codes to be set and low fuel pressure to name a few..

SOURCE: Hard to start warm engine

Sounds like you have a problem with your fuel injectors, either they are working to much or not enough once they get warm....

Take it to a shop ant tell them you want the injectors tested.

My troy bilt generator xp 7000 backfires when I try and start it up. Note it doesn't start just cranks?


Sounds as though your valves need gaps reset or more than likely you have a broken pushrod....and maybe a valve frozen....when was the last time you ran it? Every two to three weeks, at most 4 weeks it should be started and periodically run.

What engine oil is used for a model 01919, 5550 watt Troy-bilt genertor?


The generator engine is shipped from the factory filled with
oil (API SJ or higher 10W-30). This allows for generator
operation in the widest range of temperature and climate
conditions. Before starting the engine, check oil level and
ensure that engine is serviced as described in Maintenance.
This is from toy bilt manual >Good Luck...

My Troy-bilt generator will not generate watts


I have a Troy bilt 7800 13500 generator. It has maybe 40 hrs on it. And It stopped working. I took it into a shop to have it fixed. Repair cost would be $1000.00 I paid 1200 for it. Shop said the 3 main parts of the generator were fried. The Generator was bought in 2005 and only like 40 hrs on it and it is dead. Troy bilt will not help out with the repair because it is to old, yet it has no real run time on it. Now the generator is just a paper weigh

My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start


First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.
