Question about Electrical Supplies
The generator worked fine during last power outage about 6 months ago. This time motor runs fine but no power out of any of the 120v outlets or the 240v outlets. I pushed reset breaker buttons to no avail.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

Yes, there must be a protection device on the unit somewhere. It should be indicated in the owners manual. It may be on the box the outlets are in, or built into the cover of the generation unit.

the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on

take a look at the fuse...if it seemed burnt then replace it.
then check the breaker...try connectting your voltmeter directly to the wire that goes into the breaker(directly to the +) and the other side to the regular (-).
if it read 220 volts then the breaker is down...so replace it...or you can use the outlet directly.
however if it didn't read any voltage,
then you should check the brushes...they are right next to the AVR module...(the two wires that come out of the AVR are connected to the brushes)
if the brushes are shattered or if there is no connection between each brush and it's connector then replace the brushes..
but if they seemed fine.then your problem is with the wires...trace every wire and check for continuity.
the problem has to be one of the things i mentioned.

Probably its similar to the wiring on page 31 of this manual (pdf page 28) of this manual, reference NGK-7000HE: http://www.electricgeneratorsdirect.com/manuals/NGK%20Generator%20Honda%20engine.pdf
