    I have an Onan Marquis 7000 generator that won't start.
    We haven't used it for about 6 months and when I tried to start it it cranked okay but would not start.
    When I first tried starting it, it cranked okay but just didn't start.
    Now when I try to start it I get NOTHING. The generator doesn't even turn over .
    The only thing I her is the fuel pump running.
    I get the same results when trying the switch in the coach or the the one on the generator.
    I checked and have 13v at the generator.
    I'm hoping there is a fuse or therma-couple or something that I popped and just needs to be reset.
    I have checked for voltage everywhere I can think of to check.
    The flywheel turns manually.
    I don't know where the starter is to check that.

    Would be willing to try anything.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dick - welcome to the forum. I may not be much help here, but my generator has a fuse located in the control panel on the generator that controls the starter system. If it blows - no start. It sound like you have some technical skills, so that's where I would start. We have some real experts here, so hopefully one of them can shed more light on your problem. Good luck. :) :)
