You don't say the age and hours of the genny, but these solenoids are NOT automotive quality or designed for harsh/wet conditions that cars see all the time. With age, long run-times (vibration) or frequent starts, solenoid failure is routine. When I worked in a Honda Shop in my 20's, replacing customers' failed riding mower starter solenoids (~4/year) indicated their quality was not up to the manufacturer's reputation.
