Mine had SAWDUST, yes "sawdust" in a perfectly clean, new unit. I have the pictures from the service department to prove it. Any guesses how it got there?

Mine turned out to be the carb...Had to replace it, no rebuild kit. I was told by onan to use gas without ethynol...

Dealer suggested cleaning needle valve on bottom of carb. Seeing it is about impossible to remove with pulling carb off I disconnected the fuel line ran the carb cleaner cans hose up the inlet and sprayed it full of cleaner. Fixed the problem of running awhile and shutting down

Been fighting the same random shutdown code 36 issues. Finally replaced Onan pump and filter today only to have the same symptom. Ended up putting this back at the tank and problem solved.its just too long a run with rubber fuel line.

The fuel pumps are notorious for going bad. They are cheaply constructed imo. I've heard of pumps going bad in just a few uses. I agree with others that the length of draw from the tank is too much for the small pumps. My neighbor had same issue with his 4K Onan and replaced the fuel pump with an aftermarket brand because Onan's replacement was on back order for several weeks. I personally have had no issues with our 4K but I use a fuel stabilizer and exercise it regularly when it sits at home. The carburetors are another issue too. Worst thing for these units is to just let them sit. It amazes me to see the problems people have with a product by a company that has been around for decades. Best of luck
