Often mine won't come on for a few minutes - it doesn't _have_ to come on
immediately. In cool weather it won't come on after shutdown at all. It is
run by the coolant temperature and is set higher than the medium speed turn
on point - we're talking 95-97C... When hot weather comes, get it good and
warm then shut it off and wait 6 or 7 minutes - if it doesn't come on,
chances are it's the thermoswitch...
