Onan Generatpr not starting w/ no #'s Luis 2-6-03  
I've got a customer with an ONAN generator that's not starting when you push the start button. Where does it get it's power from?

The serial # tag and model # tag is disinegrated.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

On most installations the generator gets it starting power from the house battery or batteries.

Although there have been some that has gotten its power from the chassis battery.

Just depends on who installed the generator.

I have an ONAN 4.0 RV GenSet with a two-cylinder opposed gas engine, and there's no serial number plate. ONAN dealer asked for a number that's stamped in the engine flange on the "inside" part of the set. On mine, I'd tell you to find the breaker points cover sitting on the top of the engine right where it meets the generator, then follow the flange away from the breaker cover, and away from the side of the genset you usually see (which is the side the oil filter and start panel are on). As the flange changes from horizontal to vertical, the number I mention is stamped. Scribe that down, call ONAN, and they can break it down for you into model, version, and year. They also sell detailed service manuals which include a lot of troubleshooting. God Bless, jd

Luis:
Is the generator on a sliding tray? Mine would not start, slid it out to check the starter and it started right up. Slid it back in and would not start. I determined that it wasn't getting a good ground. I ran a ground strap from the starter mounting bolt to the chassie and have had no problems since.

My choke "unloader" is not working, causing it to die after a few seconds of running. If I pull choke open after it starts to die it will run for hours. Do you sell the part, or is there an underlieing problem?
