Check the oil level. Fill to top if needed. If correct level but still will not start, disconnect the oil sensor (this can usually be found protruding from the base of the engine and has a 2 pin connector tab to disconnect) and start the engine. If this does not solve the problem then you need to replace your “Ignition Controller CDI”.
Overload Warning light on
This is most commonly the “Inverter” at fault, however, you should check your output with a small light (or other low cost device), if you get any electricity output, then your inverter is working correctly but you will need to replace your “Ignition Controller CDI”.
Output indicator light on
Indicates that the “Ignition Controller CDI” and “Inverter” are working correctly and the fault is elsewhere in the ignition system. You need to check your Ignition Coil and Spark Plug.
