Onan Propane Generator Problems


Is the generator coming up to proper speed? A cycles (hertz) (should be 60 in USA) meter will tell.
If it is up to speed, see if a UPS unit is made powerful enough to power the microwave. That will handle the initial starting load from the microwave.
UPS units are handy to power stuff while you are getting the gen going.

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.

I have a onan 6.5 emerald gen,when you start it it quits as soon as you let go of the start button, will run fine while holding start button on,then quits when you release,please help,maybe field not...


More likely the switch is bad, and only make run contact when in the start position.
Easy to test the switch continuity with a ohm meter when it is not running.
