Coleman Powermate Progen 5000, the 240 locking 4 plug, how to wir

I bought an L1420-P plug (what it calls for) for the 240 output socket on my Coleman 5000W generator. I want to build an extention cable, any idea how to wire it. The new plug is marked as follows, G=green,X, W, and Y reading counterclockwise from green. I need the 240V to power a 240V 2000W heater.

The L1420p is a common plug used for most all generators having 20amp outlet with ground. The markings on the plug are as follows; x,y, are hot connections 115v each; w connection is neutral; g is ground. You will need a four conductor cable to connect all the wires. In some cases, there is no need to connect the ground wire because on the generator, the ground is the frame. Check your manual for the proper method of attaching a ground to your generator. So unless you are grounding the frame to a ground rod or other method, the ground wire on the plug just goes to frame. If the heater is used on a jobsite, check local codes or OSHA requirements. You could also just ground the heater like many appliances in the home where there is an extra ground wire from the frame of the appliance to ground. Good Luck

The generator hasn't, been used in a while and is not cranking. Gas is getting to the spark plug and the plug is clean. What could be the issue?

On a 120-240V system you should have a reading between white and black as desribed, you should have nothing between the black wires and ground, however you can only test by completely disconencting them all, you may have a N-G bonding jumper in the output wirs giving you that reading

In any power generator installation it is always advisable to have a ground/earth rod (minimum 3 ft/1 metre long) attached to the frame of the generator, especially when connecting ancilliaries such as yuor transfer switch. The Earth and Neutral pins of the output sockets on the generator should also be interconnected. They are usually linked at the factory on assembly.
