Why won't my Sears generator produce electricity?

My Sears generator model number 580.323051 runs, but doesn’t generate electricity. This is an older generator with an upright shaft. Where can I obtain wiring diagrams for this model? Is there a common problem with these generators besides the fuse blowing? Do you have any ideas what can be wrong?

There are several different problems that could be preventing your generator from producing electricity. If the generator has not been used for a while, check for dirt or debris in the contacts. Also, check for loose or frayed wires on the unit. You would need to have a technician check for problems beyond these basic issues.

Because of the age of this generator, technical information is limited. I am not able to find a wiring diagram or other data on this model.

I recommend having it serviced by a technician or replacing it if you cannot find a technician to repair it.

My generator is only 2 years old, less than 20 hours on it. It is a All Power 3250. Very frustrated I can not use it.
