If the LED is shorted or dead, you will get a 0.00 reading whichever way you put the probes on, if you change the probes to the opposite direction and get a reading such as (eg 1475) then the LED is stil good.

Does it reset if you turn off the power to the compressor.

if you can afford a real standby genset id get one of those. reasoning is this way you do not have to store gasoline and rotate it every few months. and if you have a backup style genset you may not be able to get fuel for it when your supply runs out. that and you have to hook it up when the power goes out. safely hopefully. they are sized depending on the size of your power needs. most places that sell them will come to your house and tell you what youd need. easy stuff

Electrical... | Answered on Feb 19, 2019

The vast majority of the time(over 99%) it is the just the AVR or Capacitor failing (depending on which is fitted to your Generator. 2 or 4 wires = Capacitor and Brushless alternator, 5 or more wires = AVR and Brushed alternator.) Replacing this should fix your problem.
Only replace the part with a quality Grade "A" replacement that is built for your Generator. Anything else could cause damage to your Alternator, resulting in the Alternator needing to be replaced and this is a very expensive! (We only sell grade "A" products.)
You will need to pull the part out and have it on hand when you order. Once you have identified if it is an AVR or a Capacitor, look up and purchase your replacement parts on our website.
