Hi, remove the electric control panel & check the wiring as sometimes we have seen the wires coming off the voltage change over switches.
Also some of these units you can check the connections in the rear of the alternator & if it has brushes that they are not stuck.
Another problem we have had is the trip switches have went faulty but still switch operates ok, they need to be checked with a probe type tester for conductivety.

If it's still under warranty take it back to the retailer and tell them it quit working - don't offer any other information.
If you must fix the E/G yourself - On the generator there's a cover on the back; take the cover off so that the back of the windings are exposed. You should see 4 to 6 diodes mounted to the rotor and stator...those diodes are most likely burned out because of temperature failure, due to overload. You have to take them out to isolate them...they should read .6 Ohms one way; reverse the leads and they slhould read about 1.2 Ohms. If there shorted you'll read 0 Ohms and open infinety.
Anyway, replace those diodes and you should re-establish your field winding voltage which develops you A/C output.

SOURCE: no output from my generator
Check the capacitor in the generator head. Will onpen or short cause loss of excitation voltage. Just checked my GENERAC ( no output) and sure enough the cap is shorted.
