SOURCE: my onan 6500 gen cranks slow and won't start new

Your solenoid might be bad or your starter motor might need new carbon brushes. If you can take out the starter motor and see if you can manually rotate it, if it is not to hard to turn it, if hard to turn manually your starter might have something bad inside. A bad bearing or bushing. One more thing try this while cranking try to tap the starter motor.

SOURCE: Need battery for Onan 6500 Generator

I have searched but cannot actually find what type male of battery it uses, other than it is a Lead Acid Battery. Now with lead Acid batteries, it is the actual Capacity, in Both Amperage output, and Physical capacity. So based upon that ANY 12 V DC Wet Cell battery of the SAME Physical size, and CURRENT capacity will work. Look on the actual battery itself, it WILL/Should have identifying marks written on it. Get one the same, it is NOT all that critical.

Have you replaced the solinoid too? If not, maybe the solinoid is staying engaged, which keeps your starter, well starting. If the starter stays energised the flywheel WILL tear up the starter gear.


hope this helps

Onan genarator will not crank


If it wont crank, check to see if the solenoid on the starter pulls in, the starter and solenoid are one unit, it sounds like an internal starter contact, if you have 12V going to it. Assuming the battery is good. When you press and hold the stop button does the fuel pump pump prime? if so control board has power

I need an onan generater wiring diagram


Many times these generators are sold at camper/ motor home dealers some already installed in their units. It's an outside chance but they may have access to a manual. Also if generator has 1-800# call it.they may can help as well. Hope this helped God Bless
