If there is no voltage on the sockets after having started the generating set according to the book, you will have to take the next measures and perform the next checks in this particular order:

  • disconnect all appliances, so that the generating set can run without any load
  • check if the fuses are working
  • check the engine speed of the drive motor
  • check if the wires and plugs are damaged
  • check for socket and fuse failures
  • re-magnetize the alternator with a 12V battery
  • re-measure the capacitor (for capacitor-regulated alternators)
  • check stator’s windings (short circuit because of winding)
  • check carbon brushes if applicable
  • check rotor’s windings
  • check AVR’s (automatic voltage regulation) functioning
