I am having problems with my Onan Marquis 7000 NHMF generator. I have just got it running again, cleaned the brushes and slip ring to get the 110 power coming out again, and hooked up a new fuel pump. The remote start switch was gone and I was starting/stopping it with the Black wire to the Yellow for starting and Black to brown to stop it. It was running fine right before I put the undercarrier side back on after doing the brushes and when I tried to start it again, it gave a little grunt like it was going to turn over, then it just stopped.

Now it does absolutely nothing when I push the start button. It has a full charged battery, the fuse by the start button is good, and the two barrel fuses are good above it. It seems like a fuse problem or something else but I have no clue where else to look. What now?

Thanks!

totryitall2x, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Do you have and know how to use a volt and ohm meter? Check to be sure you have voltage feeding the unit and the remote control wiring. Also be sure you have a good ground connection. Let us know what you find.

I guess this one goes along with the "Is it plugged in" question I ask some computer users. The generator has two spare fuses in the front of the plastic fuse puller that I was checking. I checked both of them and they were ok. What I didn't know was the plastic piece was actually a puller for the fuse that actually was blown. I replaced it and it now runs great. It left me feeling a little embarrassed, but definitely much happier and a hundred dollars richer than having paid a diagnostic fee to have someone replace the fuse for me!

Thanks for your quick response.
Brett

Speaking from past experances when checking fuses it's more accurate to use an ohm meter. Sometimes the fuse link breaks and it can't be seen.
