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

What is the full model number of the genset?

What are the voltage and frequency outputs of the unit?

Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 4 months ago

Onan made a lot of different models in 1975.

I need to know the model number of your unit.

I'm not sure what you mean by 244/80 volts. Is it running at 244 volts, or is it running at 80 volts?

And if the unit is already running at 60 Hz, why do you need to bring it up?

The DFE series is one that I have never worked on, and am not at all familiar with.

I will have to opt out and let someone else take over.

Sorry.
