First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

SOURCE: onan microlite 4000 generator no output

Hi, The 4000 rv unit unit is equipped with full diagnostics, and is indicated by the status light blinking. The blinking sequence, blinks a code as to the fault. If your unit runs and the status light is on without blinking, it is either the circuit breaker on the genset or in your distribution panel that needs to be reset. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

SOURCE: I have a Onan 7000 genset in my rv It starts and

Either you have a kill wire ( if I remember it is the brown wire) that is disconnected on one end or the other Or your in coach switch is bad.
Check the switch this way

Remove the switch from the dash/ mounting surface unplug the brown wire - start the genset - ground the brown wire - it should kill the motor
If it kills the motor your switch is bad

Check all the ground wires and make sure their not broken or loose. If the wires are good next check the neg. Wire to the coil. Too check the swiitch make sure you have continuity too all the post when the switch in the on position, this requires removing the switch.

I have an onan marquis 5500 watt RV generator that runs fine ,but won't generate.


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.

No power coming out of generator or breakers in our rv


Is there power at the generator output leads, where they terminate? Find out first that will isolate a generator, or transfer switch error

I HAVE A 5.0BGE ONAN GEN SET IN MY RV IT RUNS BUT THERE IS NO ELECTRICAL POWER TO RV ALL FUSES AND BREAKERS OK. ANY HELP APPRECIATED


Possible solution: if it's been sitting idle for some time, you might need to flash the windings. see this link:
http://www.endtimesreport.com/dead_gen.html
If you're uncomfortable doing it yourself, your Onan dealer can do it in 10 minutes.
Don't forget to check the circuit breaker on the generator itself!

Rv Generator does not turn on inside power, but cranks great


The regulator could be inside the gen. Maybe under one of the covers on the front. I'd poke around and take a cover or two off and look it over. You may be surprised!
