Onan 4000 Microquiet shuts down after running for 20-30 minutes. If I direct 2 high power (400+ CFM) fans to the underside of it -it will keep running indefinitely.


check the current draw from the machine
being a 4000 watt machine if you are drawing 4000 watts it is overloaded as that is the surge power available not constant power which is around 3500 watts
that would account for the requirement of fans to keep it cool
even if It is not 4000 watt what ever capacity it is it is running in an overload situation

Check the ignition circuit, and trigger coil for correct resistance on the trigger coil, and the ignition coil. The trigger coil is a small module on the engine shaft near the flywheel.

Cant run both a/c at same time


A 5KW is too small to run two HVAC at once, especially if they do not have interlock relays where only one at a time can cycle. It needs a 7KW for two HVAC units

Will not run without manuely chocking


Sounds like the unit has sat, and carb gum, Try draining the carb bowl and re-filling. There is a screw at the base of the bowl. Also make sure when cold choke is closed. And it opens fully after 3 minutes. Check battery voltage on choke coil.

When you say no fuel, are you indication the fuel pump has no fuel from the vehicle? if so the pickup tube in the tank should be looked at. If you have fuel at the pump inlet, and the pump makes a load clatter whilst priming check by installing a cheap clear gas fuel filter between the pump out and the carb, run the gen to see if the carb is been starved of fuel, if so replace the fuel pump. Anothe rpoint make sure it is an OEM pump as they are low pressure and an automotive fuel pump is too much pressure and can lock the carb and cause dangerous leaks

Check the pickup tube in the vehicle, the fuel pump is suspect. If you check the fuel pump pressure and it is ok, then try installing a test check valve between the fuel delivery hose to the generator. If it solves the problem the pump is losing it's prime internally, so replace the fuel pump.

Remove the air cleaner and inside near the throat of the carb is two bolts holding the carb to the intake remove these. Unhook the fuel line and twist the carb to allow the linkages to remove.
