SOURCE: Run ac off of generator.

you need to use a volt meter and test which lead from the 4 wire output of the generator a 220 v is coming out.

the round center prong of the ac is its ground and should not be connected to any live power. it could be left unused.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: 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.

Go to your electricians store and ask if they have a converter plug, Don't go to a Homedepot type place, go to the specialty place where electricians go. Their depth of knowledge is way better.

Your question was worded poorly and it's difficult to understand what you are asking. As a guess, if you are looking for a 30-amp adaptor cord set, perhpas this will work:

If it's a 3-prong adaptor:
Camco 55333 30 AMP 3 Prong Generator Adapter

Or a 15 to 20 adaptor:

How to connect welder to a portable generator


There are many adaptors , form generator to other connectors, go to Ebay find out which one you need, most hardware stores have converter cables from generator to what you need, most adapters covert 240 to 120v 30 amp or 15 amp or 30amp to 50amp!

Make extension 220 volt cord for 220 volt welder


most 220v welders have a NEMA 10-50 plug or the NEMA 6-50 plug--the input /output ratings thru recepticle and thru plug are same-configuration of plug prongs are different( Grainger Catalogue shows simularities and differences) main difference is AC Horsepower Ratings are different, and that applies Only on equipment that uses 3 phase, not your welder.Use an Ohmmeter to touch unpowered wire connection under shroud at ground and plug prong, then red power connection to corresponding plug prong, and again to black connection and plug prong,mark them w/ felt pen w/ corresponding colors (Green, Black Red). Change out wire plug to fit into dryer or stove recepticle, or make an extention adapter plug witch fits stove recepticle and extends out thru floor to carport and goes to 10-50 recepticle-whereas ground green goes to W position (Center) Y is Black and goes to Y Black, X is Red and goes to X red and cap off the white neutral coming from plug -welders and hot water tanks do not return unused electrcity via the white neutral (return) wire--they use up what is available on demand in heating elements or in welders - the electromagnetic field.GET HELP DOING THIS, by someone who has knowledge, SKILLS and EXPERIECE. I have 1 welder fitted to go into dryer plug which has 14-30 recepticle, and i have 1 where i kill stove circuit at panel, unplug stove, plug in 14-50 plug which has a 10-50 recepticle on other end, plug in welder 10-50 -p, flip cicuit breaker switch to on-welder has full power range capacity. No oven in use while welder going--but probably wouldnt run it anyway if on different circuit.Any doubts whatsoever--anything not 100% clear--DO NOT DO THIS or any other Electrical Manipulations--have a licensed electrician stub in a secondary circuit breaker off your main if load is acceptible and have him wire in the recepticle which your plug will fit into---.

I want to power my weld machine with the generator using a 220V extension cord that Im gonna make myself. Though the gen. has a 4 plug twist female and the weld machine is a 3 prong push male. What to do?...


I don't recommend you do this, you will dmage the generator as the alternator is not big enough to handle a large inductive load. To specific answer your question, your welder has a 3 prong, L1 L2 and ground, feeding a transformer, your generator has L1 L2 N + Ground. Again I don't recommend you wire this

I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator. It runs but I am getting no juice out of it. Won't weld or put out power to run anything.


measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.
