Go to an Electric supply store and tell them it is a 20 amp plug. They should be able to get the correct plug.
I had this generator and had to adjust the prong to make it work.

Want to add 240volt outlet to generator


You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

Yes, you can buy another pig tail with the set up you have incoming. Just be sure when you remove your old one, you note which wire goes where.

NO 20amp 120v power


you probably tripped a circuit breaker. Carefully push in all the circuit breakers, I bet that one of them will give slightly and power will be restored.

Sometimes the 20amp outlet is also a GFI outlet. You may need to reset the outlet itself if so equipped.

I have a wall outlet that is made for a 4 prong dryer and i have a dryer with a 3 prong, i went to the store and bought a new cord besides knowing its for a dryer do i need to know anything else, i bought...


When you put the cord on the dryer,the white wire goes to the center wire terminal. Black and red go to the 2 outside terminals right and left. The Green ground wire attaches to a ground screw outside the terminal cover.

Dryer outlet does not have common wire.


You can replace the 4 prong with a three prog cord found at Lowes etc.

First, disconnect the black wire, one of the "hot" connections, from the left side post by removing the terminal screw. This is one-half of the 240-volt connection.
Next, disconnect the red wire, another of the "hot" connections, from the right side post by removing the terminal screw. This is the other half of the 240-volt connection.
Then, disconnect the white wire from the center connection. It is used for the neutral connection.
Now, disconnect the green wire from the machine case by unscrewing the green screw.
The next step is critical to return your electrical connection to factory condition before installng the 3-prong cord! Locate the white machine wire that is now connected to the neutral (center) screw terminal. Disconnect it from there and install it under the green ground screw.Connect the outer two wires (hot wires) to the outer two screws, obviously, one on each screw.
Now connect the center wire (neutral) to the center post. You'll notice the white machine wire is now the case ground connection, unlike the 4-prong cord connection in which the green wire from the cord makes the ground connection.

Outlet has 3 holes and dryer cord has 4 prongs,what do i do to use existing cord


A 4-prong dryer cord means your dryer requires 240 volts, and will not work with a normal 120V household outlet.

Is your existing outlet a normal outlet like every other one in your house, or is it three holes in an unusual pattern?

If you want to get technical, I'm guessing that your dryer cord is a NEMA-14 (see the picture to the right for examples of NEMA-14-30 and 14-50 plug patterns)
I'm also guessing that the outlet is a NEMA-5 outlet.

If either of my guesses are wrong, let me know what picture/description best fits your cord/outlet and I'll try to help as best I can.

From three prong to four prong


Hello There,

your hooking up 2 Hots 1 Neutral and 1 Ground

240v

you need to consult a electrician for reason that 240 is a very high voltage and will kill you.

your outlet has to match your plug and how its wired into the Panel

Double Pole Breaker 50amp no less

2 hots go to breaker from outlet red / black
1 neutral goes to neutral bus bar in panel from outlet
1 ground goes to ground bus bar in panel from outlet

that equals your four wires

TWIST PLUG


go to an electric supply store and let them know it is a 20 amp plug. The big box stores only have a few selections of plugs
I had the same generator and had to modify the plug to make it fit correctly
