Circuit board


The ASCO 165 does not switch the home onto the generator during testing / exercise. Unless you manually press the test buttona nd hold. If the power goes and the generator starts, look at the two LED's on front and make sure the generator LED is lit, if it is then the transfer switch is accepting the generator power quality and should switch, if it does not, with everything off generator etc, kill the main breaker feeding the ATS, if the generator starts and it still does not switch you have a board, or position of siwtch micro switch, or rectifier problem in the ASCO. Let me know if you need a manual or you kind find easily on the net, ascopower.com

Generac 20,000kW Standby generator doesn't start shows message STOP ALARM OVERCRANKED


Overcrank means that it tried to start and couldn't. It will go through 5 crank cycles and then stop with this alarm. Switch to off, hit enter to clear fault and then try to start in manual. Check to make sure you have fuel and pressure is 11 to 14 in WC.

Frigidaire gallery dryer won't start


It is code that every major appliance is to be on it's own circuit (breaker). I would have an appliance tech check the electric in the dryer for shorts. It's possible the terminal block got shorted. The best thing to do is buy a voltage tester, put it on the block and see if it beeps. If it does, the dryer is getting power and it's an internal problem. If not, then the problem lies between the breaker box and the dryer.

Need to know if I can run my fridge on small generator if there is power outage. Generator is 1600/1650 Watts; Amana fridge model TC18HG nameplate says 6.5 Amps. But I'm unsure about the starting...


Hello Bob,
There should be absoluty no problem on that 1600 watt generator..at max when compressor just starts its drawing about 750 watts, that is the max usage when running its about 500 and on defrost its like 850 ..so on 1600 watt generator no problem

Coleman 6200 won't work


Hi Judy,
Generators DO last a good long time for the money, but they have to be both used and maintained in order to keep working properly. What has most likely happened is that you didn't use the generator at all for a year, after it sat on your dealers shelf for a few months not being used, and so the tiny bit of magnetism it uses to "kickstart" the process of making electricity has worn down. The good news is that this is easy for a generator shop to repair, no parts involved and the minimum labor that they charge. They need to do something called flashing the field of the generator. What they can't do is get Coleman to pay for it since they aren't around anymore, go ahead try the 800 number (waits patiently).

Be nice to the poor generator techs at the shop.
