Generator with no ouput voltage

Hey there
I have a generator which has no voltage output.It hasn't been use much as it belongs to our Volunteer Ground search and rescue team. Luckly enough business as been slow!
I am thinking that the field has lost it's magnetism and needs to be flashed.
Hopfully you can Help with this

Here are the particulars on the generator
MAKE: Honda
Model: EM5000
Numers on the engine: GC05-2584047
AND
Honda GX340 337cubic meters

On the Electrical panel is the following
Sawafuji Elec. Co. Ltd
Model M50
No: C IN 053

Thaks for any help

Hi- Have you checked the breakers- if okay-it's probably your rotor or stator - They are expensive to fix Good luck

Here is a link that tells how to flash the field. This often works on generators of the type you have.
