About two months ago, I had my generator serviced. A month later, I had to have service person back to change the battery that was six years old.
Had a power outage and it ran fine. The next week it ran its weekly check fine. This week on check day I have a red light and a 1505 error code. I’ve already spent over $500 on service and a new battery in the last two months. Any information about what might be going on is appreciated.

can you clear the error by pressing off, and enter, then place it in manual and see if it starts up. i need to know whether it tries to start or not.

1505 is typically a battery/loose connection/starter issue. Hopefully when they replaced the battery, they made sure everything was tight and cleaned up if there was corrosion! I agree with GRS, you need to know what the unit will or will not do.
