Question about Watts Onan Portable Generator - 4000 , Model# 5500
I have a 94 Onan 4000 microquiet generator that makes an intermittent grinding noise while turing over before starting. It is very loud and reminds me of a starter grinding on a flywheel but I'm not convinced that is what it is. Is there something else it could be?
If it walks like a duck and quaxks like a duck?
If it grinds like a starter ?
Your alternator would hsve to be in absolutely unaerviceable condition to match a noise a starter makes.
