Onan Generator

When I picked up my new unit, the generator would not run correctly. I would run 10 to 15 minutes and shut down. Dealer said they had to replace the carb. So this weekend it arrived, and they replaced the carb...Now it will only run 2 minutes and shut down...They said error code 14...Stinks to have a brand-new unit and keep having to go in for repairs...

Onan has a long string of fuel pump problems. Suggest you start there.

most dealers don't know much about generators or motors. find a Cummings/Oman dealer near you and they should honor a new unit under warrantee without questions. just like our motor, we go to Cummins, our chassis to freightliner. call ahead and tell them your problem and schedule a appointment, unlike RV dealers they will get you in and out quickly and have the parts on hand to fix.
