I have an onan microquiet 4000 KY. It will not start, fault code on red light indicates (35) control card failure. I took it to local rv repair, and 150 dollars later they told me what I already knew. they said command board bad. 600 for new board. plus labor. I said bye. before I take it to authorized onan repair is their anything I can do myself? Can I replace board myself? I checked dc voltage at unit, I have 12.65 volts. Any advice would be great... Thanks in advance

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.

Oil is being pulled from valve cover to air filter on my onan microquiet 4000 generator, what do I need to do?


63525c2e-e749-4a53-8402-d0463bb6c753.jpgThat sounds like the reed valve sticking or dirty.
You will need to take out the reed valve, clean and re-install. Be aware that a small amount of oil is common, also do not over fill the oil. The full mark is hot. Too much oil in the crakcase can build up pressure and keep the reed valve open.

Onan microlite 4000 generator no output


Hi, The 4000 rv unit unit is equipped with full diagnostics, and is indicated by the status light blinking. The blinking sequence, blinks a code as to the fault. If your unit runs and the status light is on without blinking, it is either the circuit breaker on the genset or in your distribution panel that needs to be reset. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
