Question about Generac Electrical Supplies
I believe you mean the fuel pump. They do fail and leak, so likely you need a replacement. Make note of where the 3 lines connect (inlet, outlet, impulse air) Also check for fuel in the crankcase (oil) and drain and replace if necessary.

on most models it is the 2 & 6 wires inside the generator. They are blue and red & all you need is a 9volt battery. Be careful, this is electricity!

SOURCE: i get no 110 or 220 volt power
generac was purchased by Briggs Stratton some years ago, however some information is available at the following web address, just enter your model number:
The small board that you describe is the bridge rectifier that converts ac from the windings to dc for the armature. You can test the brush/board by removing the part from the generator and applying 12 to 16 volts ac to the input tabs/wires then test/read dc (dc voltage will be lower than input ) voltage at the brushes. Use meter to make sure that you are getting dc. I use a small power supply less than one amp that I purchased at the thrift store for a couple of dollars. If test fails replace part. If it tests ok re-install brushes and re-connect the ac power supply to brush/board which in turn will energize the armature. At this point test the armatrue for magnetic power. I use a thin welding rod or wire against armature. If you feel a magnet start the engine. If the windings are good you should get some voltage at the plugs and the two wires that feed the brushes (will not be full voltage). If voltage is present, kill engine and disconnect ac power supply and connect the original wires to brushes/board and start engine. If you now have voltage at plugs you spiked the system indirectly by energising the armature. If still no voltage you may have an open circuit that feeds the brushes or diode pack is failing with the incresased voltage. Good luck with your repair and email if you have questions.

I am assuming the generator worked fine before the oil change. Now that you have done the oil change the genset does not start. These generators have a safety switch, which is basically an oil pressure switch that keeps the engine from running when there is not enough oil in the engine. Make sure that there is enough oil and if there is, look for a wire that runs along side of the engine to a round component. disconnect that wire and try starting. If it does not start then try to ground out the wire to the engine block. If this does not work, then there is other engine problems.

It is possible that your voltage regulator is shot but before purchasing the volt regulator try flashing the fields first and make sure the brushes and rings are clean.
