Re: [Equipment] Onan Backup Generator

Make sure it's running at the correct RPM and the frequency is 60Hz, if that is too high or to low it will run but not transfer.

I can check the freguency with my Fluke...but checking RPM may be a different task. Any ideas?

Check the frequency, as it is based upon the RPM's of the genset, if the frequency is off, then you will need to determime how to adjust the RPM's.
