First you need to identify, is there a spark at the plugs? Is there fuel getting the cylinders, it can be so many things until you define at least that, the solutions are too many to list

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Here is the diagram for the 4613 prior to the G series

G series
http://www.milwaukeetool.com/CMS/Diagrams/58-01-0961.pdf

There are 3 things that can cause no power at the outlets.
1. Brushes are worn (remove the end bell and the brush block. Inspect the brushes for uneven wear.
2. The AVR has failed. This is a very simple regulator consisting of 1 capacitor and a diode. Inspect the cap and diode for any obvious signs of damage. Most of the time the capacitor bulges or burns out.
3. The armature commutator is very dirty. Clean off with sand paper by rotating the engine with the spark plug removed holding the sand paper in one place until the armature commutator is a shiny copper color.

4...... There is a possibility fo wiring damage or stator winding damage but.... unless you were operating the unit under a heavy load for a long time.... I doubt the stator has failed.


I think your going to find either a bad set of brushes or a problem with the AVR. Most of the time the AVR can be repaired by just changing the capacitor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Why don't you keep it open?

There should be a "full wave bridge" which consists of three diodes that converts DC to AC. Try your local alternator shop before taking it in to a certified repair center.

It is common to cut off the fuel supply by stopping the diesel engine to shut off the transmission of fuel or air. The method is to install the solenoid valve on the pipeline of oil or gas supply, and control the opening and closing of the solenoid valve by pressing the electric button. So the solenoid valve is out of control. It can't cut off the fuel and air.

More technology supports, suggest you to contact the Starlight manufacturer( diesel generator set), they supply Cummins, Volvo, Perkins generator and provide services supports, the email address: sherly@dieselgeneratortech.com.
