Generac portable generator doesn't produce power

I have a Generac portable generator that will start and run fine, but there is no power. I checked the 3 breakers and they are fine and set. I checked the outputs with a meter. out of the 120v output I am getting 1.4vac and out of the 220 v output I am also getting around the same from each leg ? Are there any brushes or any other wear items that could go bad on the generator motor ? Any ideas where I should look ? Thanks in advance

Remove front cover on the genset and you will see the brushes and rings. Clean the rings if black with emory cloth and inspect brushes. Flash the fields by apply a 12V battery to the brushes. the brush closest to you or the bearing is connected to the positive side of battery and the back brush is negative. You have to do this with genset running. You should notice your voltage climb up to over 50Vac maybe even over 100Vac. Make sure to use rubber gloves when flashing fields and keep hands away from rotating parts. if voltage does increase when flashing the the voltage regulator is shot. If voltage does not climb then you will need a new genset or generator end.

    What kind of oil do you use


    Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.
    Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

    Generator runs,no power at breakers or output plug,has been started and shutdown under load. 5.7 volts on wires coming from stator. All three wires.this is on a motor home.


    have the unit checked by an authorized generator repair shop
    if it was operating when shore power came back on there is every possibility that the generator or inverter has been damaged from the lack of synchronization of the sine wave

    Generac troubleshooting my generac 14kw generator engine runs why doesn*t it produce electricity


    Assuming the generator circuit breaker is on, depending on the model it could be the voltage regulator or the slip ring brushes or both. If it's a portable it could be a capacitor problem.
