In what position is the switch under the voltmeter and does it read some voltage, may be very low? 
Is the main switch in run position?
Is there a charged battery connected to it?

Why would my generator engine runs great but it will not power any of my tools. what could be the problem?


With no load on the generator, take a voltage reading at the output plug of the generator, if there is no voltage, check to make sure that no breakers are tripped or fuses blown.

30 kw not putting any voltage or amps out


I assume the engine is running, but just not getting output. make sure everything is off and locked out first. there are primary fuses before the transformer to check. there may or may not be secondary fuses after the x-fmr as well.

Most of those chargers have a fuse in line between the battery and the charger which you should check. They are two stage chargers meaning when there is a large voltage drop, they go to a high rate charge until battery voltage reads about 14.3 - 14.6 VDC then drops to a float volatge and normal float voltage should be about 13.33 VDC. When they go to a high rate the light turns red, when they go to float the light turns green. When the fuse blows the light stays green because it doesn't see any voltage but the charger isn't doing any work.

No AC out put


After working on several of this style coleman generator,i have found that the lead wires in the windings that are soldered to where your brushes would contact tend to break.I don't know if it's a poor design or just a fluke,i would check to see if your getting continuity on the rotor and go from there.They seem to either "burn off" or just break.

Generac NP 50G wont crank


Measure voltage drop across the far ends of the fuse wiring (should measure zero), as one of the wires or it's connection to either end of the fuse may be open. Check the battery negative grounding connection at the frame. If all ok, you may need to find a wiring diagram for the machine. Does this unit have a low-oil-level switch which will kill the engine if set?

RV Onan 4000 runs fine but not putting out enough voltage to run anything


Not sure how to set it up but you can take it and have the voltage turned up on your generator or the voltage regulator is out.

Running but putting out power


You need to remove the cover where the outlets are at and measure the voltage before the breaker. There are no fuses on the output side of the genset only breakers. If breaker is fine but still no output, try flashing the fields with a 12 volt battery. If voltage increases then your voltage regulator is bad.
