Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Onan Cranks But Won't Start
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Good morning Gary,
the Onan sometimes starts with difficulties because of electric power (although the main engine starts easily).
Is your starter battery in good condition (how old is it?)? Did you charge it while your 6 months on the hard.
To make sure this is not a battery problem, start your engine first, run it at 1200 rpm, then try to start the genset.
The problem could also be the pre-heating plugs that are dead (is the starter battery voltage going down when you're pre-heating?).
In french, we say: let's start with the beginning! The beginning is the starter battery. Then you will investigate the fuel supply line...

Think simple… if your engine starts then shuts down, it is likely a fuel problem.
