Your solenoid might be bad or your starter motor might need new carbon brushes. If you can take out the starter motor and see if you can manually rotate it, if it is not to hard to turn it, if hard to turn manually your starter might have something bad inside. A bad bearing or bushing. One more thing try this while cranking try to tap the starter motor.

SOURCE: I have an ONAN Microquiet

Remove the float bowl and the fuel solenoid from the bottom of the carburetor. In the area where the solenoid screws into there is a jet. Most likely there is debris in the jet orifice. You cn use a small nail or a scribe to GENLTY scrape in the throat area of the jet to clear any obstructions. Then spray carb cleaner into the jet orifice area as a final cleaning procedure. Before you re-install the float bowl also remove the fuel supply hose from the carb and spray carb cleaner from the float needle area back to the supply connection. You may have to remove the float pivot pin but, I would not remove it unless your absolutely sure that there is debris in the float valve needle area. Getting ready to install the float bowl.... spray the plunger of the fuel solenoid with carb cleaner. Once your sure that the fuel supply passages are clear install the float bowl and solenoid. Then connect the main fuel line and test the generator.

There is one more thing you can check but you have to be real careful. That is checking fuel supply during engine cranking with the fuel hose removed. (FIRE DANGER) There should be good fuel flow via that fuel tank, fuel pump and fuel filter during cranking. If you don't have good fuel flow with the fuel supply hose removed from the carb, the problem can be debris in the bottom of the fuel tank, a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel pump.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi men2cu...
Try this method, being you have spark and gas getting to the carburetor...

Get a can of starting fluid, and spray a small amount of it into the carburetor and then try to crank it again...if it cranks and runs then problem fixed...if it cranks and shuts off right away, then you have some trash in your inlet valve in your carburetor.
You can try tapping the carburetor lightly with a hammer and sometimes that will dislodge the float needle if it doesn't dislodge the needle valve then the carburetor will have to be disassemble and cleaned.
Once this is complete your generator should run fine.

Onan generator service codes

Check the spark plug and the ignition coil for good sparking.

Get the spark plug out, or with another spark plug connected to high voltage cable, outside the motor, the outer part of the plug connected to motor ground and see if spark is present at cranking.

Onan 4kw Emerald I generator will not crank

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

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!

All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!
