Question about Electrical Supplies
If the engine is running but no output from the plugs....the VERY common problem is loss of magnetism in the generator after storage.
With the generator off.........
Look at the side of the generator part.....do you see a small + and - on any terminals?
You may have to take a cover off.
Take a 9 volt battery and momentarily put current from this small battery through these terminals.
Now.....start her up and check for power at the plugs.
This fixes 75% of "no output" after being "stored" generators.

Our generator use to idle until you put a demand on it at which time it would accelerate. One day it stopped wrapping up and stopped producing electricity. We now have a cordless battery charger plugged in ready to pull electricity. I manually spike the throttle a few times at the solenoid and it wakes up and starts putting out juice. I don't know why it works, but we've done it that way over and over. We can run drills, etc. my only concern is that it still doesn't wrap up like it use to. It simply idles while running our equipment.
