What do you mean by "there's no power to the disconnect switch"?
Is it the feeder from the mains or from emergency generator?

If it is the input from mains and you don't have voltage on it, this should make the generator to start, if automatic start is selected and thus give voltage to the other feeder (emergency), the switch goes on and the consumers have power.

If you have power on your mains feeder, you don't need voltage on your "emergency" feeder. Then the consumers should be supplied by your mains contactor.

Can't find the transfer switch, and could it go bad. Shore power and generator power works to the main panel box, but won't charge coach batteries


although it is possible to do separately most times the transfer switch is internal to the inverter , and the fact you mention that inverter is not charging batteries tells me your fault lay in the inverter all or part of it is not working , look at it carefully these have sometimes two reset breakers on there cases

I have a Taylor Perkins 150 KW generator on chicken houses. It will start on manual but not on automatic. Once started manually it won't transfer thru transfer switch.


Go the transfer switch and locate the 2 DC control wires that go to your generator for remote start.(On the remote start terminals) If you jumper these wires in the transfer switch and it starts, then the problem is with the transfer switch. If it still won't start check the wiring from the switch back to the generator, if all ok then suspect the generator control board. I would recommend you have an electrician do this, as there is line utility power in the switch and is dangerous !

GE Generator 10kw model #040448. TRANSFER SWITCH FAULT message being displayed. Generator works fine. Generator output load voltage = 233V.


This generator has a built in transfer switch. If you do not have an external source of 240 volts going in to the unit (utility power), the transfer switch will show a fault or "abnormal" reading. If you do have utility power going in to the transfer switch, and the generator is on then you have a faulty transfer switch. It is time to warranty or get a replacement switch.

Check to see if you have power going into the switch. This can be done with a voltage meter at the terminals were the cable runs into the transfer switch. Do you have power at the generator plug?

Series165 Automatic Transfer Switch with faulty controller


You have a faulty component in the controls somewhere. Sometimes you can find it by unhooking things, then try powering up until it stays on. Then you isolate it down by gradually hooking things back up until your problem comes back.
