RE: fantastic fan just stopped

Is there a thermistor on the fan which would turn not only it off but also two 12v ceiling lights???? This happened a couple years ago and magically cured itself after couple days for no reason. Already checked fuses light bulbs and 12v power to all and everything seems normal Well, the problem has rectified itself. My wife turned on the bathroom fan and lo and behold, everything now works again. We believe there is a spirit trying to get our attention!!

RE: Wobbly loose mirror arm

I also own a e450 with the driver side mirror wobbly as you described. In fact, the arm fell off as I exited a toll booth. I called ford who is NOT the mfg or installer It was Velvac. Called them and they replaced it for only $247. Two years later the same thing was occurring and again I called Velvac. I also sent pictures of the mirror. This time they sent replacement at no cost!! However, the packing slip did indicate that this time the price was over $400. Give them a call and also send pictures! AND it goes without saying, be businesslike. Good luck.

RE: I-40 bridge to memphis

Is there really someone in the US that don't know about that I-40 bridge? OK its closed for a significant fracture in one of the main supporting beams and has been for some time. If I knew the answer, I would not have asked the question in the first place. Anyway, thanks for your thoughtful response.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

When u check the Onan 4000 oil level is the oil up to the full mark on the dipstick ? If so it might be over full. I always pre-measure the amt of new oil that add during an oil change , then note it on the dipstick as my full mark. There is a video of an Onan faulty dipstick where the full mark should read 1/2 way between full and add lines. As per the video, this has been resulting in your symptoms of starting, blue smoke then stopping. This is good to know as I’ve never had one before until now and basically couldn’t get it full. Think it’s about half way up the dipstick. How the ___ do you get the dipstick length wrong? What’s the capacity supposed to be? also saw the video and I've since reduced the oil level to the half on the dip stick.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Kennyg Unless it’s something weird cutting the ignition/spark off, my money is on plugged carb or carb issue. Did it sit with gas/old gas in it for a while and not run? Yes, approx 6 months.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

What he said ^. Gasoline or LP? Presume gasoline. Does it start and run 15 sec repeatedly or was it one and done? Blue smoke is oil. Not necessarily an issue. Could be from sitting, could be burning a little oil but still ok. A lot of people don’t even notice, but most engines, new or old, in my experience, will blow a little blue smoke on startup. Once in a while. Could be a chunk of carbon holding a valve slightly open, sticky ring that frees itself up or any other number of things. If it does it every time cold and then clears up, likely worn top end valves etc. if it smokes after warmed up and constantly then likely rings. Is the crankcase over full ( gas draining into case, stuck float on a gravity fed, primer stuck on and you didn’t notice etc)? If so it could be sucking in diluted oil. Could also make it not run right, maybe. From there, could be carb plugged up Need more history and symptoms. Old gas, sat for a long time? Original question is it repeatable runs and dies? If no restart, does it fire on ether? Is the fuel pump working consistently? Did you check it? This is a replacement carb only two years old. The oil in crank was replaced at same time as carb. I over filled this jan. removed the excess and noted it was already dark brown. Replaced original sparkplug this january. When starting, it is repeatable start and stops. Pump does work. removed gas line and attempted start; gas flowed out of line when start button is engaged.

Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

Here I go again. Am at home now and I tried the generator again. It started, but only for about 15 seconds and then shut down. During this short time it ran rough and the exhaust blew constant blue smoke which I assume is excessive gas. As I stated before I did take the carb apart an soaked in cleaner and blwe air thru all the holes. So, where go I go from here? Should I be replacing the carb or pull the carb entirely from generator and soak it in carb cleaner. Nothing seems to work.

RE: Awning replacement fabric adventure...oy

I also had the awning fabric replaced and by a profession. I viewed all the videos on utube and figured it could not be that difficult. Well, they took 1&1/2hours to remove and install. I watched and the videos didn't even come close to what they did. It was well worth the extra money to have them do it

RE: Tucson to Springfield MO

I don't like 6% grades and that is what you will encounter taking 70 to 54 to Roswell. Rather I stay on 54 until 380 and then go into Roswell and beyond. Bypasses the mountain pass you will encounter on 70

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

That fuel solenoid will stick closed not allowing fuel to enter the main jet. The reason it runs briefly is because the automatic choke is on enrichening the fuel air mixture, compensating for the lack of fuel going thru the main jet. Any water in the float bowl sits on the bottom and in that solenoid causing corrosion in a short time. I just fixed an Onan with the same issue. When I disassembled the carb and manually moved the solenoid plunger it moved without restriction. If I bypass the solenoid will the engine start as long as I use the jumper? No, the only way to "bypass" it would be to take plunger out of it. The spring keeps it closed until power is applied to it. If you apply 12VDC to it on the bench you should be able to test it. Did you make sure the holes in the brass piece were free and clear? Yes I did. Used carb cleaner as well as air hose to clean. Can see thru all the holes and the air passes thru all of them. On one utube video, it talks about another "Brass" fitting with holes that is up in carb. The more I think about this is this piece which the solenoid pushes up and down?
