You need to trace out the power wires the come out of the genset. They will end up on a breaker. With a volt meter measure both sides of the breaker. If one side has voltage and the other side doesn't, then your breaker is opened. Press the breaker in closed to see if it actually closes. If it don't then you will need a breaker. However, if no voltage is being produced, it is possible that the voltage regulator let go.

Remove the back cover and look for damaged brushes or electronic parts, I'm assuming you have some electric-mechanical skills. otherwise you better take it to a service shop

Those voltage readings MAY be normal.
The AC waveform may cause your meter to read inaccurately. You would need to use a TRUE RMS meter to accurately read the voltage.
The siple meters actually read the AVERAGE voltage and then are calibrated to mulltiply it by the "form factor" for a sine wave. OFTEN these generators don't produce a clean sine wave. A square-ish wave will read higher on the garden variety meters.
Compare the brightness of a lamp comparing to when run on your utility.
The frequency depends on engine speed ... yours is running a bit fast...check it under at least half load and if off, adjust the govenor slightly.

Testimonial: "Still working on the problem but tips were a real help."
SOURCE: My generator is not producing
If you have NOT had an accident involving overloading the unit and it is brand new, exercise your warranty. Some of the brushless alternators can have the rotating diodes blown out if overloaded or something puts a short on the generator.
