1 Answer

Onan 6500 less than 2yrs old and used once. Try

Onan 6500 less than 2yrs old and used once. Try to run it every month but it does not keep running. I either drain or burrn the fuel off. Had it in shop a few months ago and replaced plug and battery and 'cleaned it up'. It ran well once after that and since then cannot keep running . I replaced plug again and found it will only run with the airt filter off. Any suggestions?

Your air filter may be stuck with dirt or moist. Try to clean or change it.
In all cases the problem is in the air duct, if it runs well without air filter.

I have a 1997 onan emerald series GenSet 6500 I have been thru 4 starters it keeps breaking the drive gear assmbly WHAT CAN I DO PLEASE ITS ALREADY COST ME 400.00


Have you replaced the solinoid too? If not, maybe the solinoid is staying engaged, which keeps your starter, well starting. If the starter stays energised the flywheel WILL tear up the starter gear.


hope this helps

Starts easily, run for 5 to 20 minutes and then


If the fuel filter (strainer) is OK, carb gives enough fuel for the load you apply, air filter is dry and clean, your problem may be the low oil level protection.
Check if generator is at level position.
After the oil is distributed in all the engine its level may go less than the measuring sensor level. Try to put some more (not much) oil. 
If this will not help your measuring sensor may be bad and switch off when the oil gets hot.

Go to the auto parts store and buy a "Battery Tender" solar powered, or get an electric trickle charger. Or install a battery disconnect for the period the unit is not in use; you can disconnect the battery.

I just bought a 1999 Winnebago with an Onan 6500 genset. It only has 45 hours on it. It will run for 15 - 20 minutes with the AC on and then quits. It will restart after a few minutes and go through the...


a 10 year old genset with only 45hrs on it...sound like the carb may need replace. working with these rv units for 6+ years has taught me that you cannot clean one well enough to fix it. you will need a new carb. your local onan dealer can help. when new the warrenty makes known that 1hr per month under load will keep the carb clean and problem free. evaporating gas leaves deposits and eventualy plug fuel jets. no replacement parts are recommended. i've personaly worked on rv's with 200+ hous and no issues at all. hope this helps, good luck...

VALSI 5,500 WATT GENERATOR WILL NOT START


All generators need to be run once a month. All things from the tank to the and including the carb will get gummed up with dried out fuel. I have a whole house generator and a 5500 watt gen set on my motor home. I keep fresh fuel in the stand alone house generator in California in case of a bad earthquake. I drain the gas after every run and keep all vehicles full of fuel just in case. Run gen sets at least once a month or pay pay pay!!

6.5 RV Onan generaotr wont kick in when loaded. checked automatic transfer switch and excited it manually, worked one time but never again,


1. Does the generator stay running when you start it the first time?

2. What color is the housing on this generator? Try to get the model number and serial number.

If the genset is shutting down on the first try, then your probably not creating voltage. However, if this is an older unit then the genset may stay running although no voltage is created. Place a volt meter on the genset to check for output voltage.
