Run a wire from the plug to theframe and put a switch inline and that way when you turn the switch on it will ground out the plug

New Nest thermostat, Model 2.8 Software version 4.0.1 keeps getting a low battery and shuts off and shuts down the furnace. Please help.


Do you have a common wire? The nest thermostat needs the common 24V C wire installed to keep the battery charged fully. Nest should tell consumers of this problem, but they don't. Its required for any powered thermostat. Even the new fancy Honeywells with touch screens etc..

Gotta realize the battery cannot run the display and wifi plus all the sensors for very long.

I have no manual for my Powermate Generator and it has never been started. Any advice on type of oil, start up procedure, and maybe more important shutting it down?


1- oil type: when you buy it...tell them u want small generator oil...its all the same.
2- start up:turn the red button (on and off button) on(usually UP).
then i prefer choking the engine.
(make sure the feul knob is open)
then pull the string ...and when it starts runnin undo the choking immediaetly.
3- shut down:simply turn the red button off (usually DOWN)..it might keeps shaking...if so...then choke it again.

i hope i helped...send me an email for more details

Engine cuts out when hot


every generator has an auto-shut down system that turns the engine off when over heated..u can dislocate the wire coming out of the engine and into the on/off switch...and then it till never shut off unless u tell it to....
but be carefull!!!!!!!!!!!!!:when u dislocate it...u r turnning off the auto-shut down system...so if the engine over-heats.. it will not shut down...
if u have any further questions email me at sal_kh_sab@yahoo.com

My "KDE19STA3" Kipor generator keeps showing fault "L&H Freq.What could be responsible and what can i do? It shuts down about 30seconds after dispalying the fault.


this is telling you that the power frequency is above or below the safe limit and so shuts down.
do not run a load but
press the function button and hold then switch on but dont start keep holding until ph2 or similar is displayed then start read the frequency and adjust the engine speed until it reads correct then try will full load and adjust accordingly 1 or 2 hz either way will be ok

GENERATOR WILL RUN ABOUT TEN MINS WITH LOAD THEN QUITS


You may have a 'TEST" mode on your Generator. Ten Minutes is usually the duration of the 'Exercise' function of most units, so I'd like to determine what mode you are starting your generator in. Please comment.
