Customer Question
I live in Naples...

I live in Naples, FL and have a honda 7000 generator that won't produce electricity. I have tried the power drill approach, but that doesn't work. Any other ideas that I can try?

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the generator? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Brand new, never been used. Honda, Powerboss 7000.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes. No businesses are open. Naples is essentially shut down

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have read on-line a few ideas regarding energizing the brushes to create magnetism, but not sure how to do this,
