Generac 4000XL No Output

I made the mistake last summer of starting my generator with a load applied{plugged into trailer}and the genertor stopped working. The engine starts and runs fine but has no AC output. Does anybody have any idea what may have failed? Was told it might be a failed voltage regulator...?

Have you checked the circuit breakers?? Perhaps they just tripped and need to be reset.

Go to the link below and follow the procedure. You may get lucky is if loss of field magnatism is the problem.

Good luck

I tried the drill procedure and was unsuccessful. Still no output. I will order a new voltage regulator and let you folks know if that fixes it. Thands again for your response.
