Customer Question

I have an Onan 4BGEFA26100F RV generator it is about 30 years old. When I push the start button it tries to start but it will not. The remote start on the inside of the RV works but the starter on the generator will not do anything. What do I look for to fix it

Hello!
My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
If the start button on the genset itself will not crank the genset, the switch is bad. The switch is an integral part of the board, so the board must be replaced.
.
If it still will not completely start after that, let me know.

You didn't mention anything about thinking it was the board. You asked "What do I look for to fix it ", and I answered that question.
