Make sure the generator/alternator is being driven by the engine. Couplers fail often enough to consider the possibility.

First thing to check is to see if the generator is actually turning--couplers sometimes fail. You need some electrical skills and a voltmeter to trace down problems in the generator beyond checking the health of the two brushes that supply current (< 115 volts DC) into the rotor field circuit. You can find wiring and schematic drawings on the Troy-Built web site, just look for the 030248 model. Another person that I worked with had a similar unit with the same problem. It looked like the voltage regulator board was the problem, but haven't heard back if he had fixed it.

I have a Troy bilt 7800 13500 generator. It has maybe 40 hrs on it. And It stopped working. I took it into a shop to have it fixed. Repair cost would be $1000.00 I paid 1200 for it. Shop said the 3 main parts of the generator were fried. The Generator was bought in 2005 and only like 40 hrs on it and it is dead. Troy bilt will not help out with the repair because it is to old, yet it has no real run time on it. Now the generator is just a paper weigh

fuel, fire, mechanical. Miss one and she won;t run. Are you sure the gas was good? Not some old can laying around that may have turned or become water contaminated? If it was fresh gas, then take off the air cleaner and spray a little wd-40, or ether, or brake cleaner whatever is flammable into the carb throat. Just a 1 second shot is all it should need. Try and start with that. If it starts and then dies quickly, still a fuel problem. maybe a gasket is damaged, or the jet is clogged. When you said you checked for fire, you acutally took the plug out and had it grounded while spinning the motor and saw spark? If you saw a hot spark then you have eliminated fire. Mechanical not likely if it was running well a short time before. If a valve was damaged, it would still run but not too well. My gut feeling is it is related to fuel.
