I am not familiar with that unit, or suzuki engines for that matter. I'm not sure it's a unit available in the states or not. (I assume you're from the UK?).

Overload and low-oil switches will kill the ignition. The fact that you have spark tells me that a switch is probably not the cause of your problem. If you have sufficient spark and fuel, then I would check for compression next. Does it have compression?

I'd suggest looking on the unit to find manufacturer name, model, and serial numbers. With this information we can look up diagrams and schematics and try to get an idea of what you're working on and might be able to better help you. If an engine does not run and has Compression, Air + Fuel, and Spark then its not getting enough of one of those three. Is the spark blue or yellow?

suzuki generator not firing maybe electrical ???

hi legal V8 , mate i have the same thoughts with the three main factor,s air, fuel & spark which is blue by the way
& have thoughly gone over it a dozen time,s every thing is as it should be. i meant even with the can of start ya ******* i should get a least a splutter but nothing ??? which is why i posted the threads i am goin to google but the only number i can find is the se2500 on the end of the transformer/power supply 240vlt
thanks for your time & happy new year lorry

I am at a loss about your machine. I would guess somewhere you can't see has to be a model or serial number for the engine itself. Most often, Gensets and other power tools have mod/ser numbers on the engine and the tool it powers but I suppose if you did not buy this new, the sticker we're looking for may be gone. The only thing that is coming to mind that would prevent it from running is perhaps a valve is sticking open a little but even then that wouldn't explain it having heaps of compression. I am just not sure what to tell you mate..
