I have a honda generator that is not putting out any ac voltage. It was working fine but when the power came on, it did not get unpluged and after that, I had no a/c voltage. How can I troubleshoot either the regulator or circuits?

If the fuel filter is good and lines are good then it sounds like the fuel is making its way to the carb built trash is stopping the fuel from getting into the engine in order to run. Clean out the carb bowl and clean out the valve stem. I know on the Honda unit the valve stem is removed with the carb bowl then then with a striaght screw driver you can remove the Body once you drop the bowl down with the stem so to clean out the cyclinderical body. Good luck

Onan 6.5 rv gen set starts buts dies when start button is released


First check the oil. If the oil level is low it will not run. If the oil level is good the generator may not be producing power and you will need to troubleshoot the generator.

Troubleshooting generators


If this unit dies under load conditions, decrease your load and try it again.
If this happens under no-load conditions, check your fuel supply. Start with the filters, then check pressure and flow.

Onan 2800 generator sops when a/c is turn on


While you didn't indicate the btus of the HVAC I assume it worked before? What you are describing sounds like the engine isn't making horsepwer. A 2800 is a small unit that a HVAC and some lights is about all it can stand. The HVAC takes about 6 x current to start it, than it does to run it. If this inrush is high and the generator engine isn't producing full HP then it will shut off and die on under frequency. I would recommend having and engine leakdown test done (not a compression test, as that doesn't tell the whole story. This will ensure all valves and rings are mechanincally in good shape, then try a basix tune up, plugs filters etc.

I have a onan 2.8kvd rv gen. replaced the pcd and it still does the same thing push the starter button in and hold to keep running


You need to make sure you have voltage from the stator windings, this feeds abck to the control board. Have the rotor and stator checked, and brushes and skip rings

Starts runs for a minutes quits but if you keep pushing the start button it keeps running


You say Guardian that is Generac???? Then you indicate Onan 4.0KY. If it is a Onan and it stops after you release the button there are a couple of things. 1 st check the brushes, and polish the rotor slip rings, check the resisitance of the rotor, the electrical harness plugs are tight. The control requires a voltage feedback while cranking to engage the PCB run circuits, if all those check out you have a bad control board.
