Sounds like you wired it in wrong.

US domestic power supplies work on a 220V ac system, centre tapped to provide a neutral and two lives which are both 110V ac relative to the neutral, but in antiphase to one another.

Sounds like you connected one of the generator's live lines to the neutral in your wiring system. It's safe to assume that your electronics actually fried within the first second or two.

Bodging a generator into a domestic wiring system can have worse consequences than this. Unless you really understand what you are doing, and also know the local regulations, it's generally better to run an extension lead to the appliances you want to power and leave the rest of the system dead.

Timing belt replacement?


I'm not sure about this car, but was the belt tensioner replaced and properly set (torque/orientation)? Many have a spring and if its not put in properly it may be fine when turned by hand, but release when started. Its rare but it does happen.

Ran out of gas put 2 gallons in pump made weird sound now wont start


You will now need a fuel pump. When a pump runs dry when it is on it's last legs, it will burn out. Replace the pump, it was no doubt due, you just gave it a little kick. It may be better this way, than getting stuck somewhere on a trip out of town.

Unfortunately this seems to be a problem with several of the jenn air models. I have replaced quite a few and have also talked to thier tech line for servicers and they don't have anything else to offer other than replacing the control board. Each time I ran across one I found no other problems and I tested everything. If you replace 3 times you can usually get them to give you a new one.

Alternator keeps going out


Have your battery checked before you put any more alternators in the car. If your battery has a dead cell or just needs replaced it could be making your alternators cover too much slack and burning them up.

97 Land Rover Discovery was running great. Ran out of gas put some in, at least 3 gallons, but now it won't start. Anyone have any idea why?


you do have to reprime te system which can take several minutes of trying to start. be careful not to burn up your starter. Never crank more than 10 seconds at a time, let starter cool after 2 minutes.

when you ran out you could have sucked all the debris in to your fuel pump and damaged it. have someone turn on the key while you listen under your gas tank for a humming sound. It will only last 1 or 2 seconds. that is the pump, if you hear nothing then your pump is bad and will need replaced. Also, check your filter what may have passed through te pump will not get passed the filter and it could now be clogged up. To locate the filter, follow the line from the tank to the engine and it will be in line before you get to the engine.

Powers down


Unplug it for about 30 minutes then plug it back in and try. If it starts giving you less and less might be the power board in the machine going out. Call the support line that is located in the front of the unit.
