Default Onan Generator Issue

On our last trip our generator stopped working after 10 minutes and then we could not get it to start again (luckily, we brought our new back up generator). We have changed the filters and replaced the fuel pump. Any other ideas why it won't run? Thank you

**edit** We had this issue a year or so ago and replaced the pump then. It worked fine and then all of a sudden it stopped.

Most Onan generators for RV use have low oil level cut-out switches, so check the oil level. As with any gas engine -- check fuel, spark, and compression...


If this is a large RV Onan genset that is diesel fueled, also check for any air in the fuel lines. Compression tests on a diesel requires a special gauge, since the pressures are much higher than an automotive gas engine...

Thank you. We just serviced it before we went out. It could be in the gas, but we just thought there might be another issue that is common.
