Almost countless things. Does it crank? If so does it ALMOST sound like it is going to start?I have 4500 watt Onan generator after couple hours shot down.what could be the problem?
Thanks for your help appreciated.Almost countless things. Does it crank? If so does it ALMOST sound like it is going to start?
If so, what you can do is go take the door off the generator and use the switch you see there that says "start" and "prime". Press the "start side" of that button, the generator should crank and perhaps start for a second and shut off. Then the red light on that same switch will probably blink three times. Then press the switch to the "prime" side quickly. Now you will get new blinks. Say it blinks twice and then a delay and then blinks five times. That means the error code is "25". It will repeat the code several times, so if you miss it the first time, just get the code the 2nd time.
So what you have to do is get that error code and then we can go on from there to diagnose the problem.

$ 5662.00 for repair or $ 4162.00 replace for new one.The technician found that the cylinders have low compression. The engine is work. We got a quote from the parts department and Yesenia is working on an estimate for repairs.
I'm always careful to keep my tank above 1/4 tank just so I can run the generator if I have to.When your RV fuel tank is low, the generator should NOT start. This is so the RV cannot run out of gas, leaving you stranded, by running the generator. That is normal, usually happens at around a third tank but it varies a lot.
IOW, the generator should run out of gas way before the vehicle does. That is normal.
