Thanks again.

Finally received the new prime switch (Generac G092113 Switch from AP Electric & Generators) and wired it as bounder39zman indicated (and so clearly explained how it works). It works fine now!! I guess the "ordinary switch" I naively used to replace the cracked one cut off the few pump when in Run mode. This explains why it would run for only 1-2 minutes unless I kept on priming it. So a BIG THANK YOU to you all for your help, especially bounder39zman

Thanks bounder39zman. Switch is due to arrive today. Will hopefully connect wires correctly.

While I wait for new Fuel Prime Switch to arrive, looking at old cracked one I see 1a and 1b at each end prong and 1 in middle, So I assume correct connection will be 14A (RED) to middle prong (1). 15 goes to fuse and 14 to Terminal Connector. Can anyone tell me if 15 or 14 goes to prong 1a (and other one will go to 1b). Thanks

Thanks bounder39zman. I have ordered a new Prime switch. What you write makes sense. I don’t think I mentioned that I replaced the cracked Prime switch with one I had as a spare at home. Didn’t really think it would be critical but maybe it is. So I’ll wait for new switch and see then. On my diagram there are wires 15 to fuse, 14A (RED) to Fuel Pump shutoff valve and 14 to terminal connector. (15 does not go to FP). When I connect new switch it looks like 14A goes to middle prong., bottom one? To fuse and therefore top prong to terminal connector. Please correct me as I don’t want to wire this incorrectly. Many thanks.

Another question if I can’t solve this problem, is it harmful to leave Prime on as gennie runs and works fine when Prime is on or pressed for 3secs every 1-2 minutes.

Thanks oldwizard1. I’ve been thinking of tackling the carb but does it seem likely that it’s the carb if it runs while fuel pump is on via Prime? I’m thinking it’s likely that the fuel pump is not on if Prime is off. I presume if that’s the case it’s something in the Control Board, but I’m hoping there is something simple that I can fix to get fuel pump to run when Start is on without Prime. Can you or someone else please clarify: When Start pressed fuel pump should run Does the Control board take over this function or should the fuel pump be on directly from the Start switch. What does Prime do other than energize the fuel pump? Does it also activate the choke? I’m not sure I can fix this if it’s the Circuit board. Thanks for your help.

Good suggestion. I’ll try that.

Thanks for that suggestion. I have tried both from main and Auxillary tank. I replaced hose from T junction to pump and from metal tube to carb

I have a Generac generator in my 1995 Damon Intruder (GN-480 Q-55). If I prime it on the gennie it starts and runs fine for about 1-2 minutes then quits, however if I keep prime switch down or press it for 3 secs every 1-2 minutes it runs fine. Gennie is providing power as fridge and lights go on after a few seconds and I switch breakers on. I replaced the fuel pump and filter (no change in symptoms) Gas tank is full. Same symptoms if I disconnect the low oil & temp sensors. I replaced the Prime rocker switch as it was cracked (the one I used has three positions and will stay ON unless switch to OFF). Thinking back I attached the 3 wires in what I thought was correct order but now I'm wondering if I could possibly have connected the 3 wires incorrectly. Should the fuel pump run continuously (I presume YES)? Should the control board take over the fuel pump once prime switch is released. Is it harmful to keep the Prime switch on? I was going to clean carb but someone suggested that is unlikely given symptoms, however I am willing to try anything as I am reluctant to delve into control board issues at this point. Thanks for any help.
