I have the onan qd 6000 generator and I’m having trouble getting it to work. My husband added oil last night and now it won’t start. Could that have something to do with it?

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

Simply adding oil will not affect how the genset starts. If it is not starting, there is another issue involved, such as being low on fuel, or maybe having a mechanical problem.
