Question about Honda Generator Em5000is Em7000is Em5000sx Em6500sx Spark Plug - Ngk Bpr5es

1 Answer

My Honda EM5000is is only producing 120v at the 240v outlet. My voltmeter is telling me that the phase pins are only delivering around 60v each ?. Could this be a problem with the 120v/240v switch, or is my voltage regulator bad ?. It produces power then overloads when my water pump kicks in & stops producing power. Also, where can I find a service manual.

The wiring diagram is here:
The first thing to check is the fuse and breakers, then the inverter. If it is not the inverter There is a problem with the M coil section of the generator.

Digital inverter generator has no 240 volt output

Most power inverters are strictly single-phase. Meaning true 120V or 240V, and no splitting or duplication. It sounds as if your inverter is a single phase 120V, and likely is not stackable on the AC side.

I recommend looking for a Low Frequency Split Phase power Inverter if you want both 240 and 110 volts.

I am looking for a multi function relay similar to the Dayton (1)6A855 but with a 240vac input not 120vac input. Can you assist please. Regards Bruce Peters

1) Dayton 6A855 time delay pin timer
Grainger owns Dayton, so you might want to contact Grainger

2) Time delay timers at Grainger:

3) Grainger shows time-delay 8-pin 120 or 240V
Grainger shows 11-pin 120 or 240V

Searching for "11 pin 240Volt delay timer" turned up results:

4) Following pdf shows knob-adjustable 240V delay-on pin timer

5) Signaline has delay timers (800) 862-2875


7) Another pdf with 240V delay pin timers

8) Not wanting to say what already know, but each 240V circuit is made from two out-of-phase 120V lines. Any 240Volt Load can be turned OFF by turning off one of the 120V lines. In this way, the Dayton 120V timer can be used to control 240V load.
Also the 120V Dayton can operate 120V double-pole contactor, and then the contactor controls 240V Load.

Is your apartment wired with a 240V outlet? Ask your landlord. A regular outlet is 120V. Electric dryers use 240V, thus where you are plugging the dryer into has to be a 240V outlet.

I have replaced the bottom element,and now i have no hot water. I check with a meter and have power to the top element but not the bottom one.

First of all, you have 240V water heater because tank has two elements.
You have no hot water, and tank has power to upper element.
Lower element has no power.

Something doesn't sound right.
You're not testing correctly.

Before doing anything, test across top two screws of upper element for 240Volts.
This will eliminate electrical problem as suspect.
Breaker must deliver 120V on both legs to complete the 240V circuit.
Every single-phase household circuit takes 2 wires to complete the circuit.
With 120V you need 1 neutral wire and 1 hot wire to complete circuit.
With 240V you need 2 hot wires, one from each hot busbar, to complete circuit.
Your water heater can appear to have electricity if breaker is delivering power on one leg of the 240V circuit.
To check breaker for sure, move wires to another similar size breaker to see if water heater functions properly.

If 240V circuit is good, then next thing is take 30 minutes and do full test of water heater parts.
This will identify exact problem(s) without guessing.
Buy 5$ multimeter from Home Depot. Install battery.
When test calls for continuity, rotate dial to Ohms (upside down horseshoe is ohms).
When test calls for testing voltage, rotate dial to 240-250-277 VAC

I have 4 -wire 3 phase 220 vac. which is one leg of 240vac, 2 legs of 120vac, and one ground wire On the Stove terminal block I have from left to right on the terminal block at them rear of stove Black,...

First of all I would assume you don't have three phase. Three phase is defined as 208v, 120/240, 240/480 or straight 480v and is used commercially.

Most likely you have a single phase service coming into your house unless you have an elevator or something that would require 3 phase.

A single phase service consist of 2 - 120v legs = 240v and one neutral, if you put a meter across both 120v legs you'll get around 240v and if you place your meter across one leg and your neutral you'll get 120v (not exact but in the range of 124v) Your range will have usually three connectors, red, black and white. So if you run #6 3c with ground, you will have red, black, white and green (its either green or bare). Connect the colors accordingly. You could even have a range that would work off what they call range cable it's legal in most states, which consist of 2 black wires incased in a bare neutral strand and wraped in usually gray insulation, electrical codes vary state to state county to county. The range should have a manual that would tell you what the rating of the electric stove is, such as 40 or 50 amps. 40amp is commonly #8 wire and 50amp is usually #6. I recommend site unseen in using the #6 wire.

The T104p3 timer is getting power but the clock won't turn and the manual switch also doesn't work. we had a power outage, and the timer has not worked since then.

If I understand correctly, your T104 240Volt Intermatic timer worked fine before.
Now the clock will not rotate.
The manual switch doesn't operate the load.

You checked for electricity.
But did you check for 240 Volts across terminals 1 and 3?
It sounds like the circuit breaker is tripped off on one leg so circuit has 120V and tests positive for power, but not 240V.
Reset breaker all the way over and then click breaker back.

Back to the timer.
If you test electricity at terminal 1 to ground and it reads 120V, that means timer is receiving power from one leg of the 240 circuit.
If you test terminal 3 to ground and it reads 120V, that means same as above.
But unless you test for 240V across terminals 1 and 3, the tests above mean nothing.

Let's understand 240V circuit.
You know all single-phase household circuits require two wires to complete the circuit.
Same is true for 120V and 240V circuits >> each needs two wires to complete the circuit.
Inside the main breaker box are 3 busbars.
There are 2 hot busbars and 1 neutral busbar.
120V circuit is complete with 1 hot wire from either hot busbar and 1 neutral from neutral busbar
240V circuit is complete with 1 hot wire from one hot busbar and 1 hot wire from other hot busbar.

The 240V circuit breaker snaps down over both hot busbars, and then 2 wires come out of that breaker and go to 240V appliance, or to T104 timer terminals 1 and 3.

If circuit breaker is not delivering on both those hot wires, then all along the way you can test for electricity and test will show 120V but not 240V.
So it appears as though circuit has electricity, but circuit will not operate until both hot wires are available to complete the circuit.

That's why you test for 240Volt across terminals 1 and 3
And also test for 240Volt across both wires at circuit breaker.

Going back to timer.
Unless there was lightning strike that fried insides of timer, but somehow left everything else untouched, the manual override should work if circuit has 240V, and Load (lights, motor, fan) is operable.

A simple test is to move circuit breaker wires to another 240Volt breaker and see if timer works again.
If breaker will not reset, you will have to replace 240 circuit breaker, or add a subpanel if your busbars are burned and broken.

Ge jsp42 electric range ..Oven heats up very slowly..sometimes can take one hour to heat to 400 degrees..Stove top also slow..

Check the voltage at the outlet. It should be 208v or 240v. check by putting meter probe into the 2/3 slots. NOT the U shaped,or round looking holes.Check one to another. Check tag on range for voltage of range. If you have 208v at the outlet and range is 240v the oven will take forever to heat, it is not getting the power it needs. If the tag says 230v either will work. On the oven tag it will say either 1ph, or 3ph. If it says 3ph you outlet should have the voltage mentioned above between ALL 3 SLOTS! If you get 120v when testing any slot, you have only 1ph of power. Keeping it simple, the ph, (or phase,) between the outlet and oven have to be the same.

How to connect a dryer in 240 v? Its a whirlpool dryer model WED5520SQ0. I believe I need a 240 volts supply, but I can't understand how to connect... I someone has the installation guide step to step,...

I have to say if you don't understand 120v and 240v it might be best to let someone more knowledgable help in person.
120v is 1 leg
240v is produced from 2 legs opposite phase.
do you have "A" and "B" phase and if so do you know how to tell?
Do you have electric heat with breakers?
If so i'll try to talk you through it

Electrical requirements for a Nexxt MO# WTMC 5321US

it would be simpler and cheaper to get a new dryer
most of the world uses a single phase 240v 50hz system, your dryer is designed to run on a 2phase 120v 90degree system.
the common statement that high voltage items like dryers use 220-240v is not strictly true, instead they run off both 120v phases of the 2phase system.
A transformer to produce a 2phase 90degree 120v 20A secondary from a 240v single phase source is expensive and very large.
It would be cheaper by far, to sell the dryer, and replace it with the equivalent model built for 240v single phase, than to buy the transformer and ship the dryer.
