Question about Electronics - Others
The reasons for the generator dose not generate electricity are as follows:
1, the magnetic pole of the generator loses magnetism;
2, the excitation circuit component is damaged or the circuit is broken, short circuit or grounding phenomenon;
3, the exciter brush has bad contact with commutator or the brush frame pressure is insufficient;
4, wrong connection of excitation winding, opposite polarity;
5, poor contact between generator brush and sliding ring, or insufficient brush pressure;
6, broken circuit of generator stator winding or rotor winding;
7, loosening of generator lead wire or poor contact between switch and wire; Fuses, etc.

Pull off the cover at the end of the generator and locate a 2 lead capacitor, it should read 130UF 200V and replace it, they often go bad and you will not have any output if they are. colman has them for 20.00 shipped. 1-800-445-1805

Try replacing the capacitor. You can buy it from http://www.jackssmallengines.com/do_it_home.html. When you pull off the power end of the generator look at the diodes also. If they look toasted replace them as well

Hi, The 4000 rv unit unit is equipped with full diagnostics, and is indicated by the status light blinking. The blinking sequence, blinks a code as to the fault. If your unit runs and the status light is on without blinking, it is either the circuit breaker on the genset or in your distribution panel that needs to be reset. Good Luck, this should Fixya!
