Excessive Voltage Honda 3000 Generator

I seem to be producing over 460v instead of 220 and more than 180v instead of 110. Would someone know the correct procedure for troubleshooting? The model is EG3000. No mechanical changes or failures are evident, engine rpm is in the ballpark.

My thanks in advance

possible scale error or defective in the voltmeter you are using to check it? Make sure not set to DC?

Still over voltage

The voltmeter(s) are independent of generator and provable on standard household current. Confirm AC Scale. It really is a "full field" situation. I suspect the problem to be in the voltage regulator but would like to find a proper method to measure and verify.

Thank you for your thoughts 38racing
