    Generator issues with main breaker?

    Hey Everyone!

    New member here! Just joined and i was hoping for some advice/help on my generator.

    I have had my generator (
    DuroMax XP4850EH Hybrid Portable Dual Fuel Propane / Gas Camping RV Generator) for almost a year now and it has worked perfect and have maintained it the best i can.
    I have used only to run my well pump and it has been doing fine until today.
    Before i used it today, i used about a week ago and it ran with no issues and today i turned it on and the main circuit breaker stayed in the off position. It would not stay on. The generator was on but was not providing any power on anything i plugged in.

    I am not sure what the issue is. I tried to do the electric drill test and no success.

    What could be going on with it?

    Could be a defective breaker
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky

If you can show me that I am wrong, and that you are a licensed electrician (or at least a licensed apprentice), then I will reopen your post, and offer an apology for the delay and inconvenience.
