Iím sure you already checked this, but with your meter attached, when you press start, does the voltage at the outlet drop to an unacceptable level.  I have chased one these all over the place.  The voltage at the outlet shows good until a valve or motor tries to start, then nothing.  Let us know how it turns out for you.  A quick and dirty test is to run a heavy extension cord to known good outlet.
