You are not running the air conditioner and microwave at the same time, are you? (just throwing it out there - )

All-

As I sit here on the computer, the small carburetor off the "Weed Eater" is boiling away in LEMON JUICE! I'll give it 30 minutes, then wash it off and reassemble it. I "Goolged" the water boiling question and one or two guys said lemon juice (the concentrated kind you buy at the supermarket) will open the orifices up pronto---

Stand by for the results---

The (Weed Eater) machine is up and running good. I ran it for 45 minutes cutting weeds (in Maine for the summer) and all is well- so far.

I used a seldom used, small kitchen black pot. It took all the black paint off the inside or the pot---

One of the things you should always do when you are not going to use the rv for whatever length of time, is add STA-BIL as per instructions and it will help keep fuel from varnishing. I had a problem a long time ago with thefuel in my boat going stall and varnishing.

I had a similar problem on a gasoline 4k Onan in my 88 fleetwood. It was the Facet brand electric fuel pump on the side of the gen. This is the same brand pump that is used on many light aircraft(Cessna, Piper). I installed an identical new one(aircaft pricy) and all was fine for about a yr, then it started dieing suddenly again. The last thing I thought would have failed was the newish pump. Long story short, that is what it was. I went to AutoZone and bought a cheap plain jane pump and installed it and never had a problem again.

I'm leaning towards the latter because when I spayed the thing out with carb cleaner it was shooting out from all the really small orafaces. I have an appointment next wed with a Onan tech. I'm sure my pockets will hurt when it is done.
In the mean time, go to this website and ask about your problem; there is a lot of Onan knowledge on that forum.
