Question about Elite Guardian HTS Transfer Switch 200 Amp, 120/240 Volts
The heater service man says my grounding is bad in the service updated in 1994.
It carries a generator for emergency.
the amp meter shows 119.9 on the hot lead, 11. on neutral and 13 on ground. The grounding rod is fed by an old green colored braided wire.
Where I start?
First check that you have good continuity on the earth conductor from the 200A switch to the grounding rod and that the connections are tight. Beware any live connectios.
If this is o.k check the condition of the ground rod as best you can looking for any corrosion of the rod.
If this loks o.k you may need to get the impedance (ohms) of the ground connection checked and compare this to the level recommended by the heater/generator supplier.
In the worst case you might need a new ground cable and rod(s) to get the required level.
Hope this will FIxYa.
