What are the model and serial numbers of the genset?

An amp gauge won't show any current unless you have something plugged in.

Your answer has nothing to do with why the generator isnt putting out any power. I was afraid this service is a rip off, and guess what, I Was Ripped Off! I lost my money, but I wont rate you tjat way at least you wont receive any money for providing an answer like the one you gave me. Thanks for teaching me a lesson in trust. Have a nice day sir.

If you had provided the model and serial number like I asked for, I could have dug deeper.

You haven't been ripped off - you just can't follow directions.
