Hello I am disabled and living in my 1987 Komfort MH...
I am trying to find a service manual for my Onan Emerald 1 Model Spec #
4 OBGE - 1R/26101C . It was running fine until I sprayed a can of the onan 4c stuff into the carb as per the instructions... it stalled out and now ... starts ... snorts and quits... I put in new plugs... and air filter but I'm afraid I've looked at the wrong manual for the carb Main and Idle mixture adjustments... You were kind enough to send me the manual for the Emerald Plus years back... but I just realized I asked for the wrong one... I knew something was wrong when I noticed the idle mixture screw is in a different place... so... sorry for asking for the wrong manual... Thank You So Much For All Your Help... My personal email is mushma87@yahoo.com

Again Thank You So Much.

Hi Tony.

The 965-0530 manual that Kpack sent should cover all your Engine & Generator service manual needs. There are only three more manuals for a BGE spec A-E genset:
965-0130 Operator's manual
965-0232 Parts manual
965-0630 Install manual

You can get 965-0130 here:
http://www.cumminsonan.com/www/pdf/manuals/965-0130.pdf

You can get 965-0232 here:
http://www.twinslan.net/~n0nas/manua...0(01-1990).pdf

You can get 965-0630 here:
http://www.cumminsonan.com/www/pdf/manuals/965-0630.pdf

The 965-0530 Engine & Generator Service Manual is also here:

I just tried it and all links in post 23 & 27 worked on my desktop computer just now.

Must be the phone. I think I remember some people in other threads having trouble downloading with a phone too.

It is a spec F I believe. I don't have the gen in front of me and I deleted the message that had the pics of the gen in it. It's the last digit of the s/n number right?? I'm not getting email notifications from this site either, so sorry about the late reply.

Either there is something wrong with the board or you have a loose connector somewhere. I have the Emerald III and when I was replacing the AC wiring harness, I had a wire with connecter that kept coming loose. I'd look at the connector, press the clip tighter and put it back on the terminal it would slide back off. The connector was so old that it lost rigidly so I had to put new connectors on.
After disconnecting the battery (NEVER THE POSITIVE FIRST) open the control panel and make sure all the wires are securely connected. The Off or Stop side of the switch is connected to the K3 Relay and went you press the button it disconnects that relay.

Back track from the gen to the battery and check there until you get the manuals. You could have more than one. It's time to learn about your new mh .
