Reset / tickled? There are resistors and diodes in the end of the alternators rotor (the bit in the middle that spins) If these look ok visually then change the capacitor which is a barrel shaped object usually with 4 prongs on the end. Without a capacitor the genset will not produce a voltage.

SOURCE: no electricity from generator
If you have a voltmeter, you can check the voltage coming out of the outlet. If you have some kind of residual voltage, such as 25 Volts AC or 10 volts ac, then you probably have a voltage regulator problem and your regulator will need to be replaced. If you read 0 volts then you you have an open between the output (outlet) and the windings of the stator.

If its a Generac could be the voltage regulator or control board. If you want to go inside then disconnect the avr (voltage regulator) from the field and put 12 volts to the field slip rings with a car battery. Watch Polarity.... Yu should get about 60-80 volts out of the 115 receptacle. Plug in a light bulb and see if it lights. If it does then the field and stator are probably ok and you need to look elseware. Make sure breakers and connections are ok from the stator and receptacle.

I can give you the "OWNERS MANUAL" for the 5500/8200 Model 16172 Electra generator, but I don't think that is what you're looking for, is it? I purchased the generator at the Navy Exchange and got the 3 year warranty on it. When it suddenly wouldn't start going into it's third year, I contacted the warranty center and they told me where to take the generator for repair. That shop worked on it and finally got it to start, but when they attempted a second start - the starter 'dogs' hung up and were destroyed. The shop attempted to locate parts, technical services, etc., for Electra, but couldn't find anything and the warranty center finally returned my purchase money and the shop sent the generator back to the warranty center. Does the manufacturer still even exist? Don't Know.... Tom.... Pensacola, Fl
