Question about RTO Cummins Onan HomeSite Power 5500
Call Onan and tell them the Inverter Board is bad. If you're not producing AC Power, have them send you a new board or warranty the entire genset. It's unusual for Onan products to go out like that, but not unlikely that this is the source of the problem.
Typically, the DC motor outputs at 12 volts, so the leads going in to the inverter are only going to be a ground and a positive lead. Should be very simple to replace. Worst case scenario is you can hook an external inverter up to the DC leads on the front of that generator. Might not get the full 5.5kw from the system, but you'll be able to produce some power.

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

your going to need to check the carburetor. sounds like your fuel sys is contaminated. when you unplug the fuel solenoid the plunger pops up and cuts the fuel off. the solenoid is used to shut off fuel to keep the unit from back firing
