generator has no power
hi. last summer i purchased a returned 3750watt generator from home depot. i got it for half off with no warranty due to the return.
it worked great when the power went out for a few days, tgen suddenly their was no electrical output, though the engine runs great.
i took a look at it and noticed where the wires come out of the alternator, they werent run through a grommet. the vibration cut through both of them.
i put the wires together figuring it would work again.
no dice. it still runs but with no output.
what gives?

You did check for fuses and breakers?

That's about as far as I can go, post the brand and model, so someone that knows this stuff might help you.

Best advice I could provide is to get a wiring schematic and check it all. It is possible that your stator is broken, but check the wiring first.
