Won’t crank. Fuel pump runs. Hot-wired 12V to starter solenoid winding with “RUN” button pressed cranks and starts engine and gen appears to function normally. Confirmed 12V getting past Fuse F2 (starter solenoid circuit), but not getting to starter solenoid winding connector. Concluded bad internal generator wiring or “CONTROLLER/INVERTER”. Checked local Onan parts supplier & learned controller circuit board no longer available. Must buy $2,134.93 “Controller/Inverter/Housing” package. Wired in “START” button on the dash & pray nothing more fails.
Reminiscent of our hydraulic failure last fall where a $10 set of pump motor brushes accomplished the same result as a $700 pump/motor/tank assembly from HWH.
We financially-challenged DIY full-timers are being squeezed to death!!
I would google the part number you need. Might get some help there. Also check Amazon and EBAY. Hope you are able to get a serviceable part. Good luck
