Default Generator help

I installed a new Shut off valve on my Cummins 3000watt generator. It starts and runs fine from the control panel inside RV but I canít shut it off from the control panel. Iím thinkining I have to bleed the valve. There is a valve to turn on the part. My question is how to bleed valve?
Maybe there is another problem other than bleeding the valve. Any help will be appreciated.
Attached image of part.

I see the image with your new post.

If the gen runs well, it doesn't sound like you need to bleed anything. If the gen primes and starts well, but doesn't turn off when you depress and release the red button on the interior control panel, I would suspect 1) the panel / specific button, 2) the wiring including the connectors that runs from the panel to the generator components, 3) the fuel shut off.

Since you just replaced the fuel shut off, that would not be at the top of my list, although you could have gotten a bad part (unlikely)

I would concentrate on the interior panel and wiring first.

Why did you replace the fuel shut off valve originally?

P.S. the one thing I see from the diagram is that you need to have the fuel shut off valve in the vertical position to have it controlled by the electronic controls / horizontal is for manual control.
