Hello, Has this generator been setting for awhile or was it in use when the power ever came back on? Have you tried to repolarize it? To do this , Shut off the generator and unplug any cords or wiring from unit. Take a electrical cord that has a plug on one end and seperate the wires on the other end of cord. Strip the ends of the wire back about half an inch on each seperated wire.Plug the Male end of the wire into one of the 110V recepticles. Connect one of the ends of the wire you stripped back to the positive side of a 12 volt battery. Now with the other end of the wire you stripped back touch it to the Negative side of the battery for 1 sec and remove it. Unplug the wire from the recepticle and battery. Fire up the Generator and check the voltage! This repolarizes the unit and fixes most non generating problems from Non use and back feeding! Hope that helped! Rick

Check the voltage regulator. Inspect for any burned spots or a blown fuse.

Engine dies when load is applied

to sort out you problem i would take the carburtor apart and give it a good clean especially the main jet i would also replace the spark plug just to rule that out it could be a weak mixture causing your problem as you increase the demand for power the throttle will open drawing in mre air & fuel if the fuelis limited due to dirt this could be the cause.
as a quick test run the compressor and close the choke (cold start device) as that will cause more fuel to air and see what happens it isnt guaranteed to work but might give an indication.

I have a brushless Genpower 5250 generator, it still fires up fine, but creates no voltage. As a gift we were given a 5600 Sears generator yesterday, and when i plugged in the plug for the pump to test it...

It's very possible that the cord is bad (shorted) causing a fault on the generator. I don't think it's fried or anything. Probably just tripped something. Give it a good look over.
