I have a 20kw generac standby generator, where the starter tries to engage after the generator starts up and is running. Only has 316 running hours. Installed new starter in 2016.


The starter pinion drive gear is sticking.... its the smaller gear on the shaft that moves up and down to engage the flywheel gear and start the motor. Carefully put a LITTLE hi temp grease on the shift splines (curved ones) and see how much that helps. The gear is not staying "retracted"..if this doesn't help.. the spring that pushes the gear back down may not be strong enough...(you could always fix both)

Why would my generator engine runs great but it will not power any of my tools. what could be the problem?


With no load on the generator, take a voltage reading at the output plug of the generator, if there is no voltage, check to make sure that no breakers are tripped or fuses blown.

My generator start the breaker trips under load and stops engine but with out load no trips


First check the load and grounding, you will need to measure the amperage draw wih an ammerter, also check to see if it trips when a large unit like a motor or air conditioner starts, it may not be able to handle the inrush. Also be aware that if your breaker is a 30amp does not mean you can pull 30amp you can safely constantly draw 80% of that. Also check your grounding of the equipment you are powering.

After short trip, battery dead, wont turn over, just clicks, any suggestions


Are you sure the battery is actually DEAD? Have you tried putting on your headlights and checking whether they dim/go out when you try to start the engine? If YES, then it's likely it is a dead battery. However, other problems which also gives a click when trying to start, depending on which type of starter you have are: a) poor connection between battery and starter, and b) inoperative starter solenoid (electronic heavy-duty electro-magnetically operated switch). You could try to test this latter by shorting across the two heavy-duty contacts. This should operate the starter motor directly. Or, if you have a pre-engaged starter motor, then you'd need a new motor as the solenoid is within the motor's casing. Good luck!

Need to know what the volts should be on the starter side of solinoid on a onan 4.0bfa r.v. gen.


Typically near full battery voltage. During starting this may fall to around 10 volts due to the high current once the starter motor engages.

How can i convert the rope pulled generator into automatic start generator...


Yes you can install an electric starter on your generator if the following conditions are present. Starter/fan cover has cutout for starter, the flywheel has ring gear and block has taped holes to mount starter. Examine the engine where the starter would normally be installed (look at a generator like yours with the same motor that has the starter installed ) and check that the mounting holes are there and threaded to receive the bolts. If threaded holes to mount are there and access thru starter cover to flywheel is there, check that the flywheel has a ring gear where starter motor engages. If all present starter can be installed however you will not have the charging coil which is normally under the flywheel to charge battery; but you can still use the generator to charge the battery. To locate parts, use model number of the engine not the generator. Good Luck

Solenoid clicks will not engage 4000KW Onan


4000 kW is a very big generator. I asume that your is 4000W = 4 kW.
If - with electrical start it should be MicroQuiet 4000.
Never mind by all types of electricaly started engines this will mean:

If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid only clicks, but neither the starter motor is turning, nor the bendix wheel is engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that battery voltage is low, in order to engage the bendix and make its power contact, or the bendix is mechanicaly blocked.
If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid clicks, the starter motor is not turning, but the bendix wheel is engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that the bendix relay power contacts are bad or starter motor collector or brushes are bad.
If by "not engage" you mean that solenoid clicks, the starter motor is turning with a scratching sound, the bendix wheel is partially or not engaged to wlywheel. This may mean that the bendix throw out lever is bent or broken, or the wheels on bendix and flywheel are worn out..

Onan model 5BGMFA26105D GENERATOR need to replace starter and solenoid. starter will not engage.


Hi, well i would take the starter motor off and check out the "Bendix" spring, that is the part that "Throws" the start gear into contact to mesh with the starter ring gear. Often these simply "Seize" and need a good whack and lube... try that first before outlaying any money, this just may fix it. Also check to see if the solenoid is OK, do this by applying 12 V DC to the solenoid, wires, and see if it activates, also check that the "Contacts" aren't "Blown Off" by putting a meter set to OHMS across the solenoid contacts and when activated it should go "Short Circuit" across the terminals.
