The power for the run side of start switch is not making it to the coil. Check wires and switch.

Cannon penncraft cannon work


Get two short extension cords and cut the FEMALE end off each one. Strip back the insulation on that end. Connect the two green wires to each other, and connect the two white wires to each other.

Connect one black wire to a light switch, and connect the other black wire to a 20W appliance-type incandescent light bulb. Also run one short black wire (from a cut-off end) from the second terminal on the light bulb to the second terminal on the switch, like so:

plug -- black -- switch -- black -- bulb -- black -- plug
plug -- white ----------------------------------- white -- plug
plug -- green ---------------------------------- green -- plug

Turn the switch to the OFF position.
Start the generator. Plug one plug from your new rig into an outlet on the generator. Plug the other plug from your new rig into a wall outlet supplying 120V. With the generator running, turn the switch to the ON position.

The bulb should flash for a short while, then become steady. When it's steady, that side of the generator is flashed. Repeat for the other side of the generator if it makes 240V.

Physical location of control board on an Onan 5500


It is right behind the start switch. There is one bolt that holds your start switch housing down, remove it and the housing. You will see the P1 connector with a lot of wires plugged into the control board

I have a Champion generator 6000 starting watts modle number 41115 starts and runs for a few minutes then shuts down , has fresh gas and new spark plug.


Is the oil level good, does the low-oil cutoff switch work properly? Try bypassing the aforementioned switch to see if it fixes your woe.

Is the gas fresh?
Possibly stale gas is the problem

Has engine been serviced: clean air filter, fuel filter, spark plug.
Clean out fuel system with carburetor cleaner. Place about 12 oz. in fuel tank and run engine.

My onan emerald 1 genset is not transfering charge to the battery


Assuming your generator has the battery charger option?
Measure the battery voltage at the battery lead in the generator, without the unit running, or the motorhome ignition on. It should read approx 12V after the unit has been sitting a while. Then start the generator, it should rise to approx 13.8 with a good battery. If it does not then the stator windings and charge rectifier in the generator should be checked. If the voltage is 13.8 approx with the generator then you problem lies further upstream, and possibly with an isolation solenoid. If you generator does not have a battery charge winding/option then charging comes from the line voltage via a motorhomes inverter, check the inverter.

My kohler 5000 generator will not run unless I keep the starter button depressed


First thing to do is get a "Wiring Diagram" for your Unit.
Once you get the diagram, just Follow the DC Ignition Power path from
the Battery, on thru to the Ignition Coil. Somewhere you aren't getting
12Vdc to the Ignition Coil, UNLESS the Start Switch is in the Start Position. It shouldn't take longer than about a hour, with a VoltMeter to find where the circuit isn't being "Made", and fixing or replacing that part.
