Angry Volvo TAD530GE Engine Fails to Start

My Volvo power generator TAD530GE fails to start although I try to start it several times.

I bought this ***** last year. It is water-cooled radiator generator, 50Hz, 1500rpm, 400V.

Equipped with air filter, fuel filter, oil filter, anti-condensation heater.

Alternator is SIEMENS alternator IFC2 223-4

Control Module is China SmartGen controller.

I have checked according to the operation manual and also do regular maintenance. Oil is enough and fuel is also enough, but machine cannot start normally.

Anyone help me solve the problem? Thank you so much.

Is there by any chance a fuel cut off installed somewhere in the line? If so is it in the on position?

This thread is SPAM. It comes from a new member who posted one post with a link to a commercial product. The member's IP resolves to an "online marketing firm" in Los Angeles, CA but she listed her location as Nanning, Alabama. I've deleted the link, but will leave the post so members can see what SPAM looks like on this forum. Also, who among us would post a profile photo like hers in a camping/travel trailer forum???? Might that be a "dead giveaway" ????

The generator she posted is a 68,000 watt generator that weighs 1890 kg (4,092 pounds). Not the "typical RV generator" even in the most luxurious motorhomes.....

Be suspicious guys, the computer you save could be your own !!!!!

You all have no idea how many of these get intercepted by the Mod Squad on a weekly basis. Even on the family friendly Kreystone RV Forum, there are wolves in sheep's clothing. Be diligent out there.

Good idea letting this example stand.
