Question about Power Generators
On a 230 volt std hook up here's the way it is supposed to work. From black to white you should get 115 volts. From Red to white you shoudl get 115 volts. From red to black you should get 230 volts.
Concentrate on getting the correct output from the generator with the load to the house disconnected
This should be 115v (black to white, 115 volts red to white and 230 volts red to black.
On the load side (ie, the house connected) what are you using? 115 volt lights, etc on one side of the
230 volts, and some other 115 volt loads on the other side.. Are there any 230 volt loads. It could be
that one side of the 230 volts (ie, a 115 volt side is drawing a lot more current than the 2nd 115 volt leg.
Get back with me on just what the loads are botth 115 volt and 230 volt . also what are the rating on the circuit breakers.
