It probably has a small Allen screw in the side of the knob. Use a Allen wrench to loosen it and pull it off.

I have a 6500 lp onan marquis generator in my rv that wont start. any suggestions?

Check the fuel. If old, drain & refill it.
Check for spark.
If the fuel is there and good, trace it to the carburetor. Check the carburetor bowl for fuel.
Check the spark plug, the magneto, any switch that breaks the circuit or kills the circuit for spark.
If you're getting good fuel to the carburetor and you're getting good spark, try to start it with ether spray.
You might also want to check compression while you're checking everything else.

How is the carbeurator bowl on an ONAN Marquis 7000 genset removed? I think it sat too long without Stabil and became clogged. It appears to be, maybe< pressed on as there are no visible holdong

They are generally sealed, as it affects the mixture. You can take the carb off, put on the bench and remove the shut off solenoid at the bottom of the bowl, remove black cap on main jet, remove screw, and unscrew the bowl. To set back up you will need to ideally check on a load bank, for ability to pick up full step load,

Onan Generator

id say its your idle jet is blocked. remove and clean carburetor thoroughly is solution or for quick fix try removing air filter and spraying carburetor cleaner into throat of carby whilst revving engine, repeat several times and perhaps that will flush it without need of removing carby.

I have an Onan 2500 LP generator. What is the red knob for?

That knob should be to bring pressure up and down with 0 being off or the lowest range of the regulator. This regulator is adjustable for different applications apparently.

Coleman 6250 generator runs rough

Fresh fuel? Does carburetor have adjustable jets? Turn the high speed jet (at bottom of float bowl) about 1/4 to1/2 CCW (looking at bottom of bowl). If no improvement, carburetor should be torn apart and cleaned. This also applies if there are no adjustable jets. Is there a fuel filter anywhere?
