Question about Coleman Propane Forced Air Heater w/Electronic Ignition (50,000-80,000 BTU)

1 Answer

I HAVE A COLEMAN STANBY GENERATOR MOD#PM0631212 AND A GENERAC TRANSFER SWITCH MOD#RTSE200A3. I CAN'T FIND AN ELECTRICIAN TO FINISH THE UNCOMPLETED JOB OF HOOKING THE 2 UP. THE GENERATOR BREAKER BOX IS IN PLACE AND WIRED, THE GENERATOR IS SET AND HOOKED UP TO PROPANE. I HAVE MANUALS/SCHEMATICS FOR BOTH BUT EVERYONE SCRATCHES THEIR HEAD BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT THE SAME BRANDS. CAN YOU HELP?

There will be some re-wiring necessary but no more than a Generator Technician can handle. Check your local phone book for generator dealers. You will pay extra because of the mixed system and because you thought you could save money by doing it yourself and not purchasing the system from a dealer. You get what you pay for!

Generac generator won't turn off in automatic


It is possibly a transfer switch issue, not the generator control board. Have an electrican kill utility power, let it start and run, then disconnect the sensing wires in the ATS. If it stops problem is ATS

You need to pull in two yellow wires called N1 N2 for sensing 220v. One red and one white called 23 and 194 those are your 12vdc transfer wires. And then last of all your 12vdc from battery charger. Hope this helps

I Am installing a Generac 20Kw air cooled unit with a 200 amp service disconect ATS What size conductors do i use from the generators 100 amp breaker to the transfer switch


It is always good to install a large enough wire where the maximum load can be drawn plus a little extra for safety. 7 gauge wire will do, if it was mine I would use 6 gauge wire. If the length is over 20 feet but not longer than 80 feet go to the next larger size wire.

Sounds like the electritian wired something wrong. Control wiring for that generator should be:
N1 and N2 = 240 vac utility input
Wire 0 = ground
Wire 194 (15B) = + battery
wire 23 = transfer signal

Generator Transfer Problem


There isn't much you can do with servicing the generator set or transfer switch unless you've got lots of experience in diagnoising semi-conductors and electronic components.

Depending on the age of the system, it would be benificial to have a qualified service tech take a look at it.

As an electrician, I've installed several back up generator sets in homes for customers and have had a few of these automatic transfer switches with intermittent operation issues. Sometimes it's the switch and other times it's the Generator that is causing the problems.

Hope this helps, and best regards!
