Onan 5000 BGM

#1
No gas from fuel pump to carburator while turning over engine. I assume the fuel pump is out but at $268.00 I want to check out any other options first. Suggestions??
Do they make, and if so are they worth while, a rebuild kit for this electric fuel pump

Re: Onan 5000 BGM

Lets start with the basics. They won't run below 1/4 tank of fuel. Is there power and ground to the pump? Does the pump run? If you disconect the line at the pump to the tank can you suck any gas through it? Disconect the line at the pump to the carb,any gas? Answer these questions and you will probably have your answer. Good Luck

Pretty much determined that the pump is out. 12V motor runs when power put to it, disconnected the rubber fuel pump inlet hose from the coach and put it directly into a quart of gas, would not pick it up even though the motor was running. Do they make a rebuild kit just for the pump or am I stuck buying a new fuel pump?

Do you have to have a Onan pump or would a 12 volt after market pump from your local parts house work? Sure would be a lot cheaper but different pressures could creat a problem I suppose.I doknow that on older models they offered kits but even those were expensive.

You'll have to reregister, Chelse. We did a reinstall since you've been away.
