I think I have the wrong Fault Breaker. I have one on its way and will report back once it is installed.

Thanks again!!!

Ok, so it turns out I DID have the Wrong Breaker..... I only have myself to blame for this.

Once I installed the correct one, it runs fine, the Solenoid holds, and the Safeties work as they should.

I looked and looked at the Schematic 100 times and just kept missing the wire from a SW B+ to that breaker. If I had seen if beforehand I would be $150.00 richer.

Ok Silver lining time. I had the money to purchase a new Board, and and a new Solenoid. I plan to replace my Very Loud DJE with this Genset at my Camp, so I now have parts that I can keep out there if it breaks down and needs them

A nice way of not calling myself stupid for chasing a problem with parts.


Thanks all for the guidance and patience!!! This is an Awesome Place!!!
