I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

Remove front cover on the genset and you will see the brushes and rings. Clean the rings if black with emory cloth and inspect brushes. Flash the fields by apply a 12V battery to the brushes. the brush closest to you or the bearing is connected to the positive side of battery and the back brush is negative. You have to do this with genset running. You should notice your voltage climb up to over 50Vac maybe even over 100Vac. Make sure to use rubber gloves when flashing fields and keep hands away from rotating parts. if voltage does increase when flashing the the voltage regulator is shot. If voltage does not climb then you will need a new genset or generator end.
