Do you by any chance have the serial number or a picture of the data tag?

Whew, she's old! I can't quite make out the data tag off to the right there, but I CAN tell you it's when Generac was using a Briggs and Stratton engine in their equipment. It almost sounds like the switch itself may be faulty.
