I am a yacht owner in Chicago. My 2984 Oman Generator is not

Customer Question

I am a yacht owner in Chicago. My 2984 Oman Generator is not working properly. A Diesel engine service firm and a marina service certified for Onan service have failed to diagnose and fix the problem. Do you know of any reliable service in Illinois, Michigan or Indiana where I might have luck in getting the repair done? If not do you suggest I replace it? I am desperate.

Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

I live 23 miles west of Chicago ,

what is the issue with it

how old is it

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The generator is original with my 1984 Hatteras Motor Yacht (48 ft.) the celanoid vibrates and engine erratic. First mechanic thought celanoid bad & changed it out only to find same problem. Thought ptroblem might be the power source to celanoid but not certain. Second mechanic thought same but needs wiring specs from Onan. Doesn't give me confidence he can solve problem and I am spending lots of money for no meaningful results. My boat is at Burnhsm harbor in Chicago.
