Aug. 30, 2013---Nixon Power Service, generator specialist arrived at 7:00 a.m. After numerous checks of the various components the control board was next in line for consideration. Low and behold one of the wiring harnesses on backside of controller was barely connected. It was too loose to make contact and came completely unplugged when controller was moved. Generator tech said "can we be so lucky that would be the only problem"? Sure enough when properly plugged in the generator ran fine. Some lessons are simply expensive. However not having to buy parts was a blessing.
Control board shows engine has run 1616 hours.
Behind this board was the separated connection.

Generator housing reassembled.
