Check out this video. It will show you how to test the AVR and alternator.
From there it will be much simpler to fix as it will point you to the part that is failing. Also you can call us if you need further advice. We are always happy to help.

You run the engine the touch the brushes using 12v batt. jumper cables to excite the exciter coil. If no result, check the carbon brushes length or change AVR.

I know of two conditions that will cause the gen set to either under produce or not produce electrical power. Either the capacitor in the armature circuit has gone bad and needs replaced, or the stator field windings for the exciter (smaller wire) field generation has an open in the circuit. Use an ohmmeter to check for continuity on the plug that feeds the internal circuit board under the back cover (four long bolts).

If there is no power to the receptacles:
1. Turn the circuit breaker switches off and disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.
2. Turn the circuit breakers on and test the GFCI's by following the procedures in this manual
on page 1 -
TO TEST A GFCI:
Start the generator. Turn the auto idle switch off. Push in the TEST button (A) on the receptacle.
The RESET button (B) will pop out. Power is now off at the receptacle.
If the RESET button does not pop out, the GFCI is not working. Do not run
generator until the problem can be corrected. To restore power to receptacle,
push the RESET button in. If the RESET button pops out during operation,
stop the generator and check the generator and equipment for defects.
3. Place the voltage selector to the 120 Volt only positions (unless you are using a tool that
requires 240 Volts).
4. Turn the idle control switch off.
5. Turn the circuit breaker(s) off and reconnect the electrical loads. Be sure that the plugs are
securely connected to the receptacles.
6. Turn the circuit breaker(s) on.
7. If there is still no power at the receptacles, take the generator to an authorized DEWALT
service center. To locate a DEWALT service center nearest to you, call 1-800-4-DEWALT
