Our motorhome Onan 5000 Marquis generator will turn over and try to start but fails everytime we test. We have primed, gas and oil are fine and we have new spark plugs. We also changed the gas filter on the generator. Any suggestion? Thanks, Loretta

I have a Briggs and Stratton home stand by generator 7000 it starts in manual but wont start in auto engine just cranks but wont start


make sure gas valve is open, and run switch is ON. I'm not a fan of B&S engines. I have a Generac generator with NO problems.Pull start the unit and let run for 5 mins. Turn off. Now try the electric start.If it does not start, you have an elctical problem when using starter. Make sure battery is fully charged before starting. Hope it helps.

Generator starts but then turns off and wont turn back on


Make sure the oil level is at capacity first, then turn off the generator power breaker bar that allows power to flow to the recepticals. The generator must be started with no amperage draw until warmed up. If this does not help, then there is a problem and likely the unit has been overloaded and needs servicing.

if it doesnt turn over how did you test the spark?

if i have read it wrong then always try a new spark plug, these can fail under compression but will spark happily outside the cylinder.
if it wont turn over then it could be siezed or dropped a valve.

I have a 3.5kva generator (wold powerking) only used 3 times spent 8 months still in box. Starts up but wont produce power!


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. When a brush type generator sits for a long period of time they sometimes require a field flash to get the generator producing power again. You can do this with something as simple as a 9V battery (difficult method) or a hand drill. I would recommend the hand drill. What you do is start the generator with the drill connected and the output power turned on. Once up to speed turn the drill by hand rapidly several times. (This generates a field) Mind you the drill will take off at normal speed once the generator starts producing power so please don't have a death grip on the drill chuck as you rotate it. The bigger the drill the better (more field power)

If this does not get you going again just respond here and there are other ways we can get your generator to start putting out power again. I doubt given your usage that there is any real problem with the circuitry.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My standby generator is just cranking but wont turn all the way


If it was installed only five months ago, it should still be under warranty. Call Home Depot and have them send out a repair person.
