SOURCE: Generator output

Hi, You don't say whether this is under load or not but if not is within the acceptable range, which is +/- 10% . Generally speaking, voltage on a generator is not the issue but the load which it will carry, hence their wattage ratings. Measure your household voltage and you will see that it varies from day to day but usually stays within the limits and your electrical panel is rated in amperage. Hope this answers your question!

SOURCE: holnda ax 800 generator does not supply 240 volt

Your generator was not designed, nor capable of, supplying 240vac outputs. 120volt only.

Hi,
Here's what I think but you will have to check it out...
The fan motor in the 39 heater is a 120V fan there fore it cannot be hooked to the 240 which potentially could have the high (wild) leg as one of the fan legs...
The 240V 36 unit probably has a 240v fan motor....
Now if you were to make sure that the leg that fed the motor was a 120V to ground leg then you will be okay...
Hope you understand where I was going with this...

SOURCE: Condenser unit will not run. has 240 volt at

Hello, check the tstat wiring going to the unit for any breaks in or if it has come loose between the indoor unit and outdoor unit. Also, chevk if you are getting voltage from tje control board between the y and c terminal, if not the control board is bad. Last thing to check is remove tstat and jump the y and r wires there if this starts the unit then you have a bad tstat.

I purchased a generac 22 kw 3 phase 120/240 volt generator. I was surprised to find that it had a wild leg. Can i change the leads on the stator output to eliminate the high leg and get straight 120/208...


This unit is wired 120-240V 3 phase Delta. if you are using on it 120/208V 3 phase application it will need to be re-tapped. If you are using it in a home 120-240V single phase it will need re-tapping, Do NOT just use 2 legs, as this will cause rotor imbalance and wear out the rotor bearings, and odd ball currents to flow. If there are 12 leads coming off the stator it can be reconnected. If not you are stuck with it, except by using a transformer

Not getting hot


first make sure theres 240 volts at the dryer plug in ,if not then try resetting your circuit breaker ( or fuses ) if its electrically heated (not by gas) and is plugged into a 240 volt receptacle as even though the breaker may not show its tripped by the little orange window on the breaker it can lose one phase of power ( 120 volts) and still turn but it needs both phases to operate the 240 volt heating element,if you lose one leg of power ( 120 volts ) either the drum will turn or the timer will run (but not both ) because each of these parts only operate on 120 volts or one leg of the 240 volts

Back up generator 240 volt output is off balance?


So there is a problem. Where are you measuring voltage?
Say there is L1 - N - L2. Line1 to Neutral is 120 volts, Line2 to Neutral is also 120 volts, Line1 to Line2 is 240 volts. N or Neutral ( the grounded conductor ) is center tap between line 1 and 2.
With this system, the N wire carries the unbalanced load in amperes .
Now we are talking of L1 and L2 and amperes. When L1 and L2 are conducting 10 amperes each, N carries 0 amperes, Line1 and L2 are balanced. When L1 carries 10 amperes and L2 carries 5 amperes, Line1 N carries 5 amperes, the difference of L1 and L2. This is normal.
When there is a problem with a loose connection on N, there is a resistance and will not carry the unbalanced load normally, the voltages will Chang's under load, the problem will worsen with time, a fire hazard, connected loads may burn up from excessive voltage or not work at all.
Bottom line: Make sure the N line ( white wire ) is tight at every connection and inspect for overheating damage. You may have to open the generator connections panel to check there too.

I am installing a brand new nordyne furance I am not getting power to the 24v transformer the 240 wires going to the transformer are connected to the same leg. What leg is the wires suppose to be connected...


The have to be connected to both legs of the 240 volts, one wire on each leg. You have to have 240 volts going to the high voltage side of transformer.

My kenmore 80 series dryer won't heat but everything else works fine I cleaned the vent duct of all lint [ there was alot ] and checked the electrical conections


Had similiar problem once and it turned out to be one leg of the 240 volt
supply was dead. The drum motor only needs one leg (120V) to run, but the Heating elements require both legs (240v). Make sure you have 240V at the recep.

Dryer keeps tripping the fuse. I replaced the Moisture Sensor control last year, but now it's doing it again. Could soemthing else be damaging the control


check the neutral connection from input power all the way thru the unit, if theres a bad connection the 120 volts will use the other 120 volt connection to make ground and you get what they call a voltage-divider circuit and say the motor is on one leg and the moisture sensor control is on the other leg,the motor will draw only about 80 volts and the sensor will get the imbalance of the 240 volts or about 160 volts and will not last.

Low heat 100 degrees


either the cycling or hi-limit switch are bad or the element is open or the neutral wire can burn open or you could have lost one leg of power to the dryer so instead of 240 volts its running on 120 volts,the motor and timer run on 120 volts even though they are normally on opposite sides of the 240 volt circuits,chk the power to the unit first for 240 volts its the easiest test
