1. Is the overload light on?

 

2. Is the green pilot light on?

 

3. With the idle control off, does the engine sound like it is running at the normal speed, or does it sound very slow?

 

4. Measure the output at the receptacle. Is it actually 0 volts, or is it just low voltage? How many volts if it is low?
