    Alice Nelson RobinsonWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    July 11, 20202020Jayco Redhawk 24 B. Today I tried starting the generator, (start every month ) and it started and got the beep etc but only ran about 10-15 minutes, then stopped and didnt want to stay running when I tried again. The generator felt hot. There is plent...  more

      Seann (the Canadian) July 11, 2020 I know you said plenty of gas but if it's under a quarter tank it will not pick up it's a safety feature so that's one possibility

        Alice Nelson Robinson July 12, 2020 I youtube and actually too full of oil cause this issue, I will be checking out everything when I pull it out of my carport, tight fit and I cant open the generator door.
    • Alice Nelson Robinson
      B and B July 11, 2020 Again, to echo above, you need at least a quarter tank of gas.  You didn't mention, does it run when it is not under load?  When does it quit running?  When you put a load on it?  If it doesn't want to run at all and you have sufficien...  more

        Alice Nelson Robinson July 12, 2020 It was under load, I will try it without. I will replace the fuel filter but its only 3 months old., taking it back to where I bought it with warranty means 3 months there, I dont dry cam so I'll check it out my self. I will get the maintenance done in ma...  more

      Bounder Travelers July 11, 2020 You could possibly have a cracked fuel line, a failed fuel pump or the electrical connection to the pump came loose. Old spark plugs and distributor points might suggest poor operation but not abrupt cutoff. Read you Onan manual for more information. As s...  more

        Alice Nelson Robinson July 12, 2020 i'M GOING TO CHECK THE OIL LEVEL, AIR FILTER AND SPARK PLUG AND FULE FILTER.
    • Alice Nelson Robinson
      Jim & Sharon Ham July 11, 2020 These are all great suggestions and the same ones in the same order we would have.  Gas and Oil checks are easy before maintenance begins.  The Onan 4000 is a real workhorse even if a bit loud.  Amazon is a great source for Onan parts if yo...  more

      TheClearyClan July 11, 2020 Check your manual. My Onan 4500 has a way to flash an error code.

        Alice Nelson Robinson July 12, 2020 where do I find the flash code?
      • Alice Nelson Robinson
        TheClearyClan July 12, 2020 In the owner's manual. There is a table that lists the flash code and what it means. They also tell you where to find the light and how to make it display the code.

      Tim & Crista July 11, 2020 I agree with these other comments regarding gas. If you’re on a slant at all and you think you have a quarter tank the generator might read it differently.

        Bill & Debbie Bircher July 11, 2020 I’ve had several Onan products and if they display an error flash code, they are pretty accurate from what I have experienced.

      Joe and Lori July 11, 2020 I would go with the oil level first. I had a stand alone that would "stop" when it ran a while. Cool off it ran. Was the low oil cut off

      Brian&Nadine July 12, 2020 I had my camper parked close to my barn so that the generator exhaust overheated the generator and naturally it was a hot day.
    • Alice Nelson Robinson
      Alice Nelson Robinson July 12, 2020 The exhaust is out in the open , no obstruction
    • Alice Nelson Robinson
      Bounder Travelers July 13, 2020 When did generators start having error code capability? Not my 20 year old 5.5 kW Onan.

      Alice Nelson Robinson July 15, 2020 Update!
      It’s 105 here but this morning I started to generator without load and it did well, still need to move it out from under the carport to open door and look at it!
