First verify that the breaker for the outlets is not tripped and make sure that the generator is running at full operating speed. let it run for 5-10 minutes and check for output power. If there is nothing, there are two possible problems. One could be that the automatic voltage regulator is bad. The other is that the field needs to be flashed - a high possibility if the generator has not been run in a long time. There are many videos on the internet that show you how to solve both of these problems. Just do a search for No output from a portable power generator.

Some oil sensors will stop the generator from running if unplugged, IE they close the circuit on oil pressure, some close the circuit on oil pressure. I wouldn't recommend but with it running just take the single wire off the sensor, if it stops immediately then it requires the signal grounded to run. Some ground on low oil.
