Want to add 240volt outlet to generator


You CANNOT do this, USA 240V is derived from a poly phase scenario, IE 120V line to neautral and 240V line to line, UK 240V is derived from 1 line to neutral it will not work unless you power a transformer

I have a powermate 5000, it is putting out 330 volts on the 240 side/165 on the 120 side? what could be the cause of this?


There can be nothing but a bad voltage regulator in the end of the generator. They are getting harder to find. Robert

We have a power back generator 5050 watt we are trying to install the cord to plug into our house, what size cord do we need


If you are wanting to connect using the 120/240 outlet, I would use a #12 gauge 4 wire cable. If over 25 feet, then I would use a #10 gauge. The wire size will make a difference, so that is why I am offering the two sizes. Please make sure that you have a transfer switch if you are connecting to the panel. This will prevent someone from getting seriously hurt or killed.
thanks Joe

220 appliances in house all out.lights up but either dont heat or wont bake .lightning could be culprit but never lost tv reception.dryer runs ,no heat.water heater out.stove lights up wont get hot.shut...


Sounds like you have lost one leg of your power

Think of it like this

You an upside down "Y" at the top of your breaker panel
220 - 240 volts come in the Y and break in half 120 volts to each leg of the "Y"
A 220 Volt breaker straddles both legs a 110 volt breaker only contacts one leg
I suspect that you have lost one leg
Possibly at the main breaker ( top most)( main disconnect) in your panel
If you have a tester with the capacity to test 240 you can test the two top lugs where the main wire comes in Test them together That is one probe of your tester on each wire you should show 240+/- volts
Then you can move down through the panel 120 +/- on each leg
Hope this helps if you need more just let me know

Coleman 7000w gen. I have 120 on only one side of my 240 plug. I disconnected wire assembly from control box.. Could get 120 out of various combinations of the 4 wires but never 240. Should I be able to?...


Hi,
At the wire assembly there should be 2 white and 2 black wires, a white and a black are the ends of one 110v winding. With the 2 white wires connected together you should get 240 from the black wires. This sounds like it is a problem with one of the circuit breakers in the 240v outlet in the control box, check them with an ohm meter.

Regards,
Carl

No electric power generated from my Coleman Powermate Maxa 5000W.


the gensets on coleman generators are definately nothing to brag about but i would start by checking the windings and make sure the brushes have a clean armature to ride on
