Most likely it is the AVR, they tend to get zapped when you turn the generator off with a load on.. or run out of gas with a load on..
Always turn off or disconnect your load before shutting down.
other possible problem is the brushes might be worn down.. but that is rare...i'd check the AVR 1st .
the AVR is a regulator. and is located under the generator cover.
it is a block looking item. 2 connectors, 2 wires goto the brushes, and the other is a molded nylon connector.
there are 2 different models, type A and type B.
they do sell them on ebay for less than $90.00
once you install it,, start the generator up to confirm power out out with a accurate meter.. the voltage should be close, there is a small tiny brass adjustment ***** to fine tune the voltage..
after that reassemble..
( NOTE, the new AVR might not be the same size as the original, so you may have to fabricate you an adapter plate.. make sure you secure it well either way you go.
