I assume it is a hand start genset. The most common problem if it has been sat for a while is rust on the ignition timing flywheel. If you take the pullcord housing off (recoil) then you will see a big flywheel with what can only be described as a big forked prong with a couple of wires on it. This flywheel should be stainless steel and rusts when sat around for a while without use. Its job is to complete the circuit to the spark plug every time the flywheel passes the forked prong at a given spot on the flywheel, the faster the wheel turns the faster the spark hence the engine runs quicker. Clean the rust off with a releasing agent (wd 40) hey presto!!!!!!!!!!!

Check the Ground Fault Indicator circuit breaker for triping, and look for the high limit on generator. Reset the main breaker by triping it full right and then back. Vitally

Remove the back cover and look for damaged brushes or electronic parts, I'm assuming you have some electric-mechanical skills. otherwise you better take it to a service shop

At the controller, you need to see if it is actually sending electricity out of the Generator/Alternator, have a look where the leads from the power making unit mates, (Think of it as a motor in reverse) onto the board. There should be an AC Voltage there, then, work back, or out from there, trace the Voltage until it stops, thats the problem... Check the Breaker isn't tripped or faulty too.

Sounds like your ignition board is not working.
Aftermarket ones have a common automotive fuse.
Have a look at the following on line so you know what you are looking at in your unit.
Dinosaur electronice makes a UIB ( universal ignition board ) that will fit just about any fridge.
about $100 online. $250 where I tried to buy one at a rv place.
