Weird issue with Onan on 3170DS
Yesterday I was running the generator (no power at home due to Hurricane Sandy). Anyway, I had a small electric heater plugged in(1500W) to conserve on the propane usage. Everything was working well for 3 days, I unplugged the heater and I could hear the generator rpm's kick up a little since the load was removed. Then suddenly the generator shut-off. I tried to restart it, it would run for a second or two and then shut-off. This happened a few times. I went outside and could smell a slight hint of gas. I was never able to get it restarted.
Do you think the carberator might have been flooded? The indicator on the master panel flashed 3 times indicating service is required. The generator only has 87 hours on it and a recent oil change.
Luckily our power was restored last night, so I have time to diagnose this issue.
thanks in advance
