Onan 4KY 4000 Watt 60 Htz 120 Volt 3600 rpm GENERATOR Starts but won't stay running Ryan Schafer 6-5-12  
We have a 4KY Onan Generator on our 2005 Four Winds 5000 RV with 75 hours on it. The generator starts up fine and runs for about 10-15 mins with a load and maybe about 20-30 mins without a load. Then it surges and stops and won't start again until it cools down. We've changed the filter, checked the oil, replaced the spark plug, regapped the valves, checked the fuel to make sure it was clean and there was at least a half tank plus in the vehicle. Nothing obviously wrong. The blinking warning signal is 3 blinks and then 6 blinks. Any ideas? Thanks!

I have a 1983 Southwind motorhome Model number 6.5NH-3CR716004P and every time you push the start button it blows the fuse. Will not turn over by the starter. Does this unit have a starter on is the starter combind with the generator? Could use some help in troubleshooting. Reply to Thanks
