THOR #9536
Generator will not start

I am very disappointed with my Onan 4000 generator in my 2018 Thor ACE. Right now the Motorhome is at CW, they say it has a ignition problem, it just cranks with no start. The unit was working perfectly the last time I used it was about 4 months ago. They say it will require them to remove the Generator to perform further diagnosis. Just saying this unit was never abused, you would think I shouldnít be having a problem with such a new unit. I have done all the preliminary checks before I made an appointment with CW
Not. A Happy Camper

Take it elsewhere. CW will have it for weeks if not months, waiting on parts.

Get it back and take it to a factory service center. It will be repaired faster and cheaper.

So you never exercised it monthly per the manual? Probably a gummed-up carburetor.

I am sure you did this. When I had my ACE I had to push the prime/start switch three times before it would start. This was even when it was hot from use.

Hold prime down for ten seconds then start every month run under load for twenty minutes

So CW found a broken wire in the ignition circuit, it has been repair and ready for pickup tomorrow, just about 24 hours, sometimes you have to trust CW. I called around and was unable to get repairs done in a timely fashion at any other facility.
