The red emergency stop switch kicks when you push the start stop rocker switch s11 to start. the fault breaker reset breaker cb12, or the or the dc breaker cb13 kick off. It's just the emergency stop dc control breaker switch cb11

the fault beaker reset cb12 and dc breaker cb13 do not kick out ,It's only the emergency stop dc control breaker cb11 .Thanks Mike

Try disconnecting the temp and oil senders for the engine shutdown system, a grounded temp sender will trip the shutdown as soon as it goes to crank. The oil sender should be bypassed during cranking but disconnect it anyway to test.

Please post an address. So someone can send you the service manual. If you don't already have one. It has all the test the socalled experts would charge you 125 an hour to do.

Also check over the wiring for cuts or shorts to ground. We can help you on this site and it is free. Well I might charge you a BEER.

The above link to the YD generator manual will likley be more helpful than the service manuals. I will send you a service manual as well.

Thanks for all that helped ,I have fixed the problem ,My problem was the fuel cut off solenoid inside the injector pump housing. The coil was bad, The new coil is more heavy duty and was told the original coils fail quiet often . It was a stanadyne model.
