If you overloaded it you probably damaged the relay circuit.

Yamaha 2400IS Generator goes to overload when ie: 240 volt plugged in, or 700 watt angle grinder plugged in.

No idea but somebody else will probably come along with a better idea then mine, seems a lot of these generators have this thing installed on them (Has $25 hard start kit). Not sure what it does or how it works. Strangely enough you said you use it for 240 volt. Looked at the picture and didn't see a 240 volt connection.
If you are using the what look like the 120 volt circuits you can't over load the unit. Maximum current draw will cause it to go into protection mode and shut down the power load. The following is an exert from the owners manual which I got from Yamaha's site. Link at the end of this post.

Hope this helps

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light
comes on when an over-
load of a connected electrical device is detected, the
inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage
rises. The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping
power generation in order to protect the generator and
any connected electric devices. The AC pilot light
(green) will go off and the overload indicator light (red)
will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are found,
4. After checking, restart the engine.

How do you flash a Coleman Powermate 3500 generator? Runs fine; no electrical output

See some of my responses to other peoples generator problems.
If you have no or very little electrical output, then you have overloaded the generator by placing a demand for too many amps from too many appliances for the size of the generator. You will have blown a capacitor, resistor, or similar item. Someone with a good electrical background will need to diagnose the problem and find the blown part.

Try changing the battery as low output can affect electrical systems.

Over load lite

The SU-G91 uses output IC's ( big black square things mounted on the silver heatsink inside the amplifier ). Once the overload light comes on, the output IC(s) are fried. It will have to go to a repair shop and the output IC's are expensive $80-$100 each !!

Sorry i don't have better news,

Stator and reg keep going out

If your stator and regulator keep failing, it's generally caused by an overload. Have you added any extra lights or electrical gear to your bike? If so, you may be overloading your charging system. If your bike is equipped with a 42 amp system and when you've got all your stuff running it's drawing 38 amps, your charging system is working to almost capacity to provide the current that is being demanded. This causes the components to run hot and they fail. My advice to analyze your current needs on the bike and look for a system with higher output capacity or take some of the current demanding equipment off the bike. Cycle Electrics builds a "three phase" alternator kit that works well. I've installed several of them and never had a problem.

Good Luck

Engine runs fine but probably overloaded the generator. Is it just brushes or coil too.

Site unseen i would say its neighter the brushes or the coil . And more the likely the problem is with a transformer converting the DC off the generater to AC for your output . If the engine runs ok and the armature in the generater spins ok and you don;t have a million hours on it should work at least somewhat . Try testing the output on the AC side see what you get for AMPS you will need a muilty meter set to AC amps

My receiver I saying overload and switc power off

Disconnect all speakers and see if you get the same error.
If you don't , get an ohm meter and start checking the speakers and wires.
Anything les than 4 ohms is likely the problem.
Check the impedance on your speakers to see if they should read 8 ohms or 4 ohms.
Check the wires for shorts.

If the amp says overload with all inputs and outputs disconnected, then you likely have a blown output transistor. Start checking the output transistors for shorts between any 2 pins.
To check the transistors properly, check them out of circuit.
here's a couple links to my tips and tricks to help you in that area.

Hope that helps you out!

SA HE200 ~ Overload at power up

First of, be sure volume is turned all the way down before or as you are powering it it.
Second if that does not work disconnect all speaker, and input/outputs.  Power the device on and see if it says overload.
If it does skip the rest of these steps, your capacitors are bad or the power supply is no longer functioning correctly.
If it doesnt, start with testing each speaker at power up.  Match the speaker to the output it goes on, power the device see if it says it. 
If it does on any speaker test it is a speaker issue or a terminal issue.  To test for terminal or speaker issue plug a different/ known to work speaker in that same terminal, if it doesnt say overload it is a speaker issue, if it does say overload it is a terminal issue.
Once you have made sure all speakers and terminals work correctly start plugging input and outputs in and test individually.
