Question about Coleman Powermate Proforce 6,000 Watt 12 Hp Portable Generator #PM0106000
The generator is not putting out any voltage. I have replaced the voltage regulator and brush set and I tried flashing it but still no luck with it.
You will need to check the resisitance of the stator and rotor windings, and also each rotor/ring to ground (IE rotor shaft) All tests to ground should be 0 M ohms, stators vary but typically around 1ohm or so, and rotors approx 20-30ohms

Here is a simple test to check field and other wiring. With engine off apply 12v ac 1 amp to 110v outlet plug on generator. This will energize the field windings and should cause the armature to produce dc voltage at the brushes and produce a nice magnet. If there is a short in the field or broken wire or shorted capacitor there will be no dc reading at the brushes. . This test is the opposite of what actually occurs when the engine is running. That is the armature produces a magnet fed thru the windings, regulator and brushes. If dc voltage is present at the burshes, remove 12v ac and start engine to check for output. enjoy

This problem is either that the engine RPM is too low (most likely), or that there is something amiss in the voltage regulation. Get yourself a DMM that measures Hz, plug it into the output and see if you get 61.5 Hz, if not look for the adjustment on the governor spring. On some Powermates this is a screw that pressed on the governor arm, on others it's a little tab the governor spring attaches to that you bend. Do this at no load. FWIW 61.5 Hz is also 3750 RPM of the engine.

You need to check at the terminals of the actual alternator itself.
There should be the AC 120V +/-10% right there, then it should feed out to the electronics.
Most likely you have an alternator problem, if there is NO voltage coming out? It may have gone open circuit. Often a problem.
You need to obtain a service manual, to have any shot at repairing this unit, it's almost impossible without one.

If the engine is running with the alternator not outputting then you must check with the LOAD TRIP switch.
if not remove the load and check if there is output. If not there is fault in tha alternator which might need some consensus.
