Onan 4kw Emerald I generator will not crank

I bought a 1987 motorhome with an onan generator in it.... the guy told me it ran last year fine and this year they went to start and it would not crank. He replaced the mother board($130) but it did not fix the problem. Batteries are good...I have tried starting when plugged into house...gas tank is half full in camper. It does not make a sound when I push the start on the generator or remote start. Batteries do not show a load when start button is pushed. Any ideas? Generator ''looks'' like it is in good condition.

Thanks in advance

The gen. is not the problem, the engine start circuit is not functioning. You need to look at the starter solenoid and starter.

My generator will turn over but wont start


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

Some Onan 4KW do not have auxiliary battery charge windings and rectifier. Are you sure you have one? If not you will need and external charger

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.

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.
