Getting kinda vintage old/ (older than my 21-yo), and do not recognize the QBFA, but is there also a series NAME .. like EMERALD? Might help? Could it be "QG" = Quiet Gas; OH, and the 3.3 amps is most likely 33.3 amps?

Try this link for a starter:

I just Googled Onan QBFA Manual. The "Q" is not there, but the BFA is. I'll bet this might be helpful. By the way, your post on this forum was the second "hit" on the Google result. LOL.
