SOURCE: I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator.

measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.

SOURCE: will feed wire but will not start an ark to weld

Make sure that the ground clamp is securely fastened to the workpiece.
Ensure that the power pin is fully seated into the housing where it receives the current.
Ensure that voltage and amperage settings are correct.

Welder wont strike and keep an ark


Check the output voltage of the welder (the torch and earth clamp). The voltage should be around 30 to 40 volts. If yu see the normal spark from the rod as you strike, but cannot hold an arc, have a look at your rods, they could be old, damp or incorrect for your welder or the type of work you are attempting.

Welder will not power auxillary outlets


sounds like either something is shorted out or the governor is stuck. Check the governor linkage to start with and make sure it is free. Then check the push in breakers for the outlets to see if they are popped. If not the brushes or the armature could be stuck or corroded.
