Check for loose or rusty battery cables. Unscrew the rear cover and locate the red battery wire. Disconnect it and, using a multi meter, check its resistance: it should have a very low value. Do the same with the other wire.
Start the generator and remove battery wires. If the voltage between them is zero then a fuse is blown.
Next open the front panel (where the display is), there you will find two blue wires with covered fuses, check and replace those fuses if found faulty.
If the problem is still there then it could be the charge regulator. Open the back cover by removing the six nuts. Near the edge you will find a component with silver cover resembling plates. There are three wires leading from it. Check resistance between these wires (one by one) and its body: it should be infinite, if not then replace it. remove the charge regulator and take it to a generator spare shop. The person there will further inspect it and will tell you if you need to replace it or repair it.
Hope this solves your problem.
Thank you for using fixya!

forget about the display read the manual and find out how many volts are needed to charge the battery....then
get a voltometer and disconnect the terminals from the battery and connect them to the voltometer while the generator is running...
find out what the reading is...if the reading is zero (0)...then post a problem on (no out put)...
if not.....then there has to be a mistake...
if it reads a voltage thats too low..then you AVR card is burnt out (AVR card is located in the other end of the generator (beyond the stator-side cover)...

Hi, I hope I can help a little bit. The hunting by the governor like can be caused either by governor adjustment or carb adjustment might be the culprit.But before you go into that, have you checked and cleaned the air filter or looked at the carburetor that might need cleaning if it has been awhile since that was addressed? If you figure that is alright try adjusting the carb first. I have never seen or heard about that brand of machine before, so I will give you a general adjust procedure. I will stress again to check everything you can think of first. The fuel tank has to be vented and on most machines this is done by the tank cap so make sure that is OK. Is the filter on the fuel outlet of your tank not obstructing the fuel flow and that the fuel lines are in good shape and not starting to deteriorate inside and slowing fuel flow?
To adjust the carb make small 1/8 of a turn at a time. Before starting the engine turn each one of the low and high clockwise or in until lightly seated so the needle seat is not damaged and remember that setting, even mark it down so you can always come back to that setting. The low or idle mixture screw should be about 1 turn out or counterclockwise more or less. The high mixture screw can be anywhere from 3/4 to 1 1/2 turns out or counterclockwise. Do not adjust the high mixture screw less than about 3/4 turn from the seated position. When you turn these screws in or clockwise it lets in less fuel to air and could make it run too hot.
Start with the high speed mixture screw and turn 1/8 of a turn out and listen what happens. If not better do that again up to one full turn in 1/8 increments. No good results try the low speed or idle mixture screw in 1/8 increments and see what happens. If no good try with the two at the same time.
There is one more screw and that one is on top of the carb and adjusts the idle or low speed of the engine with no load and is also very important to adjust the right idle RPM so that when a load is turned on it has enough RPM so the engine has enough so it does not start to miss and sputter because of turning too slow.
I have given you all this info without knowing if this is the right type carburetor or if this engine is gas or diesel, or is a barrel type carb.so I hope this helps you out even just a bit. All the best and good luck. By the way I will not even try to explain the governor setup as It is too lenghty and I don't want to make it run worse or not at all.
Maybe one of the other guys might have a simple procedure to get it done. Well good luck and all the best to you.

maybe your generator has a problem with the cylinder head gasket.try to remove the cylinder head gasket,grind the valves intake and exhaust it. use the gasket cement to glue the cylinder gasket then assemble it
