Generator turns on and runs but no electricity coming from unit i tried a reset on the circuit buttons, any suggestions
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
Since I don't have a model number to work with I am going to assume this is a generator with brushes. (I need your model number!)
Having said that... TRY THIS:
1. Plug in an electric drill to the output power plug and turn on the output power switch with the generator running.
2. Squeese the drill trigger switch and rotate the drill chuck as fast as you can. This will flash the field of the generator and often output power starts right away. NOTE: When power starts it will try and twist the drill chuck out of your hand. Just let go of the trigger and the drill chuck.
If you have an inverter type power head the steps are different for flashing the field. The easiest way is to do a male to male power cord from utility supply power connection and turn on the output power switch to re-establish a field in the PMG of the rotor.
There are other steps but without a model number this is what I am sending off at the moment. Respond with a model number if the steps above do not work and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
