I spent $2000 having my 2004 Generac completely rebuilt last year; but, was a lot less than buying a brand new unit north of $4000. It's all in how you consider "cheap repair". Good luck.

Look around for a small engine repair shop to rebuild yours!

I occasionally fantasize about replacing the Onan generator in our rig with a Honda - I've had occasion once or twice to use portable Honda generators, and you can't hear them running when you're standing next to them!

At one time Honda made two great RV generators. 4010 and 6010 were great packages.

Notice I said WERE.

I just had the Onan 4000 genset and it's fuel supply system gone through by a well recommended generator shop. Cost was $794. Also replaced two 6volt 4 year old house batteries. Good advice is to run generator for two hours per month with AC on for a load to keep it running reliably. Also, house batteries need to be kept charged and with electrolyte covering the plates, use distilled water and rubber bulb filler. Keep terminal connections clean. Check voltage with digital multi-meter while resting and while running the chassis engine or RV generator. Worth being a little obsessive for reliable genset operation.

I know this sounds strange but check Amazon. They have several carbs for Generac.
I have bought several carbs from them for other things and all have been good.
