Onan diesel generator stops after about a minute
I have searched but could not find my exact problem/solution. My generator worked fine a couple of weeks ago. Three days ago I noticed a fuel leak and Cummins tried to repair it. They could not get the part so they temporarily bypassed the water separator so I could move on. The coach runs fine. Today when I started the generator it coughed and stopped about a minute later. Two attempts to restart it ended the same way. I inspected the generator and fluid and oil levels are fine. The code on the switch is 3 blinks followed by 6 blinks. I cannot find this exact code in my Onan manual. I have held the off button down for a minute at least 5 times and tried to restart the generator. Each time it runs for a short while then stutters and spews white smoke which certainly seems to point to a fuel starvation problem. I can find nothing in my documentation that shows a separate filter for this unit. So, this leaves me believing that it is quite possibly an air in the line issue. But, how many times or how long should someone hold the Off button to clear the line?
I would really like to know how to resolve the problem. And I would also like to know what code 36 means, exactly.
Thanks in advance,
