    Hi, to both of you, First let me be very clear about a couple of things. If you are trying to supply backup power to your houses when the power goes out there are several ways to do it, and all require additional materials and you need to check your local codes to see what is legal. Backfeeding without the proper disconnects can be dangerous and damaging to you your house, your generator and you! A 3000 watt generator is not meant to supply your whole house but items that you plug in like your refrigerator to avoid loss, or power portable lights ect. I will explain some simple ways to power items in your house as long as you understand you have to do everything correctly to avoid problems and accept the risk.

My furnance keeps turning off and I could go to furnance flip switch on and it only last 5 minutes then shuts off again


You may want to check the limit switch or you could have a issue with the gas valve or transformer. I would check the low voltage transformer first, Sometimes I have found that under load the transformer will open ( quit working) and will close after power is removed and it cools down, It indicates a bad internal connection.

Tip

How to make sure you Heat is working


A common problem with a furnance is the furnance will attempt to ignite, several times, you will notice that the house is not heating properly. You will hear the furnance come on and you will assume the heat is on, and the house will continue to be cool. You wiil check the furnance and you will hear it start up and the blower will come on, however a few seconds later after you have walked away the blower will shut down and there is no heat on at this time. You will again go check the furnance and after the furnance start and go through the cycle the furnance will shut down you will notice that the furnance has indeed shut down. This is the common problem of the flame sensor, you will have to remove the flame sensor, get a small piece of fine grade sand paper, and remove all the black colored carbon from the flame sensor until is is shinning bright, replace the flame sensor and attempt to start the furnance. You will notice that apatment or house have reach the set temperture, that the furnance has went through its cycle and the furnance will ignite and stay on continueously until the house obtain the preset temperture..

Honda eu3000is generator surges


Inverter Generator Benefits
  • The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.

EU3000i Handi Specifications
  • The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.

RUUD Air Conditioner not turning on


Need to check the breaker to the unit at the electrical breaker box. You should have a dual 60 amp breaker that runs the unit. Also if you removed the front of the furnance on the inside the system will not work unless the front of the furnance is on. There is a safety switch that will not allow the system to run with the door off. There could be the problem if the breaker is on and electricity is supplied to the unit that switch may be out and need replacing. The furnance is operated on 110 volts the condensor (outside section) operates on 240v you need to insure that the proper voltage is supplied to both.
Since both units work together yet operate seperately if the furnance comes on and the condensor doesn't then there is an electrical problem at the condensor (more than likely the contactor switch) if the condensor comes on and not the furnance then there to is an electrical problem (either 110 volts not supplied) or the switch to the safety cut off is bad. Now if neither furnance nor condensor comes on there could be improper power to both or a bad thermostat since the thermostat activates both furnance and condensor. Good Luck on repairs

Blower not working


check your thermostat first to see if it may need batteries (some of the newer types of thermostats requir batteries to work properly, These are the digital types) If there isn't any problems there then check the electrical panel to see if there is a breaker for the furnance and if it has been tripped. If not, go to the furnance closet and check to see if the unit is plugged into the electrical service for the furnance, if it is plugged in I would suggest checking to insure you have the correct voltage comintg into the system. If so and you do have correct voltage coming into the furnance then you have a bad blower motor or blower motor capacitor. The capacitor can be checked with a meter that checks capacitors I would have this checked first and then the motor However if you have to replace the motor at that time I would replace the capacitor. Good Luck hope this helps
