Customer Question
HiHank I have a onan...
HiHank I have a onan 7000 gen 7nhmfa26106f doesn't start on its own but if I manually operate throttle by giving it just a little gas it runs then if I adjust the throttle screw to about 1500 rpm it stays running and works like it should thanks Bob

gas
Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 2 years ago
OK
First things first. You should not have tampered with the throttle stop screw. This is not an idle adjustment -- it is a safety feature. It will need to be reset, and you will need a frequency meter to reset it. Failure to have it properly adjusted can lead to engine failure.
How long has this genset been sitting?
Before you tampered with the throttle stop, would the engine run at extremely slow speed, or would it just flat not start?

been sitting for 2 months started in dead of winter ok run for about two hours . flat not start
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
not using genset now waiting till get fixed right. Noticed that when I turn microwave on it would slow down & stop when running good it would speed up a little
Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 2 years ago
First, take off the black cover on the top of the genset.
Look to see if the throttle linkage has become disconnected from the governor actuator. This was a common problem on this genset.
