Wolf. Why doesn't it stop running?


The on-off switch may be functioning mechanically but not electrically. A continuity test while operating it can confirm the malfunction.

I have a 4 prong tanning bed 220v and my appliance outlet at home only accepts the 3 prong plus such as the ones you see on a dryer. How can i get this converted to a 3 prong so that i can plug it in? Or...


It is because you tanning bed requires L1 and L2 (240V) and a seperate neutral, and a ground. You need an electrician to install a proper outlet. A dryer (years ago) was installed without a neautral. However per NEC electrical code even new dryers have to have 4 wires. Do not attempt to use on 3 wires !

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

Ground the generated it's self. I had a similar problem after a storm once. First on the generater itself find a flat peice on the frame say by the motor. Sand in down to mettal. Put a self tapper screw in. Now get a 5' to 6' peice of 10 gauge bear copper wire. Attache it to the generator and shove the rest into the ground. Now it's grounded and It took care power surges when I did it. Hopefully this will help you.

Operation of a Devilbiss GT5000 generator


not to familiar with the generators however , I do know that the old style receptacle for 240 volts was three prong. Then OSHA got a hold of it and added a second ground to make it 4 prong, Thats why some houses use a 3 prong dryer cord and some use a 4 prong. hope this helps. and if it has 2 240v outputs BONUS they dont make em like they used to.

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

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.

Generator plugs doesn't match cord


Hey steve. do you really need 240 volts for 120 v. circuits. the reason you have to have an adaptor plug is because on your 220 volt plug in , 2 of tthose prongs are hot and 1 is ground. for safety you need to get a plug adapter ( a regular 120 volt plug end ) run a ground from adapter to ground on 220 adapter. same with nuetral. you also need to ground your generator. there is usaully a ground lug on the bottom of the gen. Another way. if you dont really need 220 v. is to use both 120v. recepticals on gen. Run 2 chords to tranf. switch. and hard wire it in to switch. another way i did mine . when i lost power in this hurricane. i ran two # 10 chords from my 2 120v. recept on my gen to my breaker panel. when you do this you have to pull the service meter, if you dont when power comes back on it would backfeed through your gen.then i turn all my 220v. breakers i was able to run lights ,ciling fans, freezer, ice box,washing machine and gas dryer , tv's computors etc. . but to do this, you probably need someone that knows what they are doin.
