code 32 is low cranking speed
Technician: Wayne, Engine Rebuilder replied 10 months ago

HI OK

That is low cranking speed bu if it starts that is not the issue

Onan has big trouble with the controller failing

That is your issue, need to replace that

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

When this unit first came out about 10 years ago, bad controllers were an issue. But it has not been an issue for several years now.

There are some things you will be able to check, if you have a good digital multimeter, but with a code 32, it might well end up to where you have to take it in to have the unit connected to a special scan tool from Onan. This tool costs about $1000, and is out of the realm of the average person.

However, if you have a good meter, I will be happy to walk you through what testing you can do.

Do you have a quality meter to work with? Preferably one that is capable of reading frequency?
