I am not getting 120 volts when my generator is running.

Customer Question

I am not getting 120 volts when my generator is running.
JA: What's the make and model of the generator? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: 1993 Onan Marquis 7000
JA: What happened just before this problem started? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: I replaced the automatic switch that was burned out that switches land power to generator power and everything was fine. The next time I tried the generator I got no power to my outlets. I removed the switch and it looks fine. Then I tested the voltage at the circuit breakers on the generator with it running and I have no power.
JA: Anything else you want the engine expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope
