At the point the transfer switchis suppose to transfer put a dc volt meter across terminals 23 and 194 in the transfer if you do not show 12VDC. Then you have a relay hanging upon the PCB board in the generator, need to replace board. If you are showing 12VDC and the switch is not transferring the problem is in the switch itself.

Why doesn't my GE Symphony 20kw generator turn off after the power comes back on?


The transfer switch could be bad, worn internally, a manual switch, or a semi-automatic transfer switch. Check the transfer switch part numbers and google them to find out exactly what kind they are. In some places fully automatic transfer switches are not permitted in a residential environment.

Why wont my transfer switch change back to utilities position when the power is restored?


It depends on the brand of switch and generator. A Generac has its brains in the generator control board, others in the switch, what brand of switch please?

When we purchased our home in '04, it had a Dayton generator in the basement, model no. 3W056A, serial no. 55658 F83. It runs on natural gas, or so I've been told: It has never run since...


Let me make sure I read your post corerectly ... You have a Natural Gas operated generator hooked up in your basement? That's a train wreck waiting to happen! How is the exhaust vented out and how air tight is your basement? What keeps the carbon monoxide from reaching the rest of the house, when it's in operation?

Generators are a great back up. I have a 15 kw, that carries most of the house, plus 3 pumps during a power outage (Due to severe electrical storms, recently) we have had 2 power outages in 5 days. However, the National Building Code says "NO" to any type of generator being operated inside a residence or building of any type.

Without trying to sound critical, you need to rethink your plans of getting your generator running again. At least in your basement. Have it moved outside first and check with your local officials regarding clearances to any openings in the house. Or as you said "Just scrap it."

I sincerely hope this helps you make the right decision. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I recently purchased a Husky 3750 watt generator to ''hook-up'' to my house. The wiring already exists so I figured I would just plug and be good. NOPE! I get it started with ease but when I try to...


Is the house dead??? Did you turn off the main breaker in the house?? It sounds like you are sending voltage to the generator.Do you have a switch that stops the power from going down the street from your generator?? 3700 watts is not a whole house genny, you need more like 6500. 5000 min, unless you are just running the fridge and the lights. Is your "plug" wired into the fusebox through a breaker or straight to the bars? You gotta check these things out.

Portable generator pops breaker when temp is over 75 degrees


I take it you have RV plugged into generator. Hopefully direct with no extension cords. Are you using a 30 to 15 amp adapter to plug into generator? What is the rating of the breaker on the generator that keeps tripping, suspect it's only 15 amp?

Generator started, ran briefly, then stopped sending juice


Hi there,
crclarkphd has a problem that sounds like a brush failure. The clunking noise was likely the remainder of the failed brush getting knocked around inside the back end of the generator so you need to take it apart and inspect things closely. Here is a link to a general solution I posted some time ago that may be of help.

Guest jj has a fried breaker in one leg of the 220 outlet. Even though it doesn't look tripped it's failed, check it with an ohm meter.

Regards,
Carl
