Trying to driveRHEEM RAMB-036JAZ using a Honda eu2000 generator. How to hook this up?


You have to very careful powering up home appliances on portable generators due to back feed problems to incoming lines. I would recommend getting an experienced electrician to show and explain the problems with what you are considering. Many linemen have been shocked due to backfeed. The real way to perform this is to get the controller that is put on home generating systems such as generac type systems. These automatically isolate line supply from backup power from home generators, thereby eliminating shock hazards to linemen.
If prolonged shortage, you could disconnect the wires into the furnace and install an extension cord from the furnace to the 120 volt plug on the generator. Most fans are powered on gas furnace on 120 volt. Make sure your voltage needed on your furnace before attempting emergency power up. I have seen some furnaces power by 240 volt fan motors. If it is 240 volt then use the 240 plug wired correctly. PS when you get an electrician to help you with the wiring, check out the requirement to provide grounding, to lessen your shock hazard.
Hope this helps.

No electric output, how do I diagnose, capacitor, proper winding check etc.


Have you tried flashing your generator? Sometimes the magnets in the generator loose their polarity. Google and YouTube "flashing a generator"
HFLASHING the GEN

Sometimes the magnets lose their polarity. This worked on my brothers $1200 gen. Its worth a try. Good luck!
Check all wires/connections first, Then try this-
(Remove spark plug wire first!)
To flash the field on a small home use generator, get an ext. cord & cut off the female end of it & strip the wires & connect the wires to a 12 volt car or lawn tractor battery, & plug the male end of the cord, into the 120 A.C. side of the generator.

Make SURE that the black wire which is POS/HOT on an A.C. cord, gets connected to the RED/POS. side of the auto battery, & the white wire on A.C. cord gets connected to the BLK./NEG. side of the battery. If the ext. cord wires are not black & white, then the smaller prong of the plug is the POS./HOT

Plug the other end of the ext. cord into the generators 120 volt side (**remove spark plug wire**) & pull the starter cord 4-5 times, then remove the ext. cord, reconnect the spark plug wire, start the unit & plug something of 120 A.C. volts in to see if it works. Then let it run for about a half hour with 2 - 150 watt lights to help re-generate the unit.

Only has 120 volts,can not get 240volts


the generator consists of 2 120volt windings that run in parallel for 120 volts and in series for 240, check the change over switch make sure a wire hasn't fallen off, if you have a multi meter check both coils have the same resistance

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

Can I make 2 plug in sockets from one in a 240 volt circuit


There should be NO problem in actually "Adding: another :Outlet" have you thought of a 20 - 25 Amp Power Strip, Multiway Socket, As long as you DO NOT exceed the Amperage/Wattage of the "Supply" The generator, 5000W, there will be no trouble. You MUST ensure however that this is so.
5000 Watts is 21 Amps, Watts = Amps X Volts. IE: 21Amps x 240 Volts = 5000Watts +/- 10%. So the TOTAL Amps drawn by the SUM of all the things connected must be LOWER than,say 20 AMPS.

Flash field on generator


Yes, polarity does matter. If you remove the front cover on the generator end you will see where the rings and brushes are located. The closest to you is positive and the ring that is towards the engine is negative. Trace those wires up into the control box and flash the genset there. The six volt battery is fine. I preferr 9 or 12 volt battery, so that I can produce a larger AC voltage.

Coleman 7000w gen. I have 120 on only one side of my 240 plug. I disconnected wire assembly from control box.. Could get 120 out of various combinations of the 4 wires but never 240. Should I be able to?...


Hi,
At the wire assembly there should be 2 white and 2 black wires, a white and a black are the ends of one 110v winding. With the 2 white wires connected together you should get 240 from the black wires. This sounds like it is a problem with one of the circuit breakers in the 240v outlet in the control box, check them with an ohm meter.

Regards,
Carl

Basboard heater installation


if the heater is 120 volt or 240 volt its really pretty easy. at either end is a cover. remove the cover and you'll see a wirenut or maybe just two wires. one side has an integral thermostat. connect your supply to the two wires on the thermostat. connect the other end in your breaker box with the appropriate sized circuit breaker. wire size feeding it will depend on its current draw. how many watts is the heater? 1500 watts will draw 6.25 amps at 240 volts so you can use 14 ga wire. 2000 watts will draw 8.3 at 240 volts - so 14 ga is still ok. 2500 watts at 240 draws 10.41 amps. 3000 watts draws 12.5 amps at this stage I'd use 12 gauge on a 20 amp breaker.
