20 Most Recent Generac 100 Amp 120/240-Volt Transfer Switch #RTSN100A3 Questions & Answers

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!

The AVR is dead. remove the back cover and remove it. it's a rectangular shaped plastic container with cables located at 12'o clock of the alternator. make sure to write down color an position of cables or better yet, take pictures. once you have it outside look for the numbers located on top of the bar code and input those numbers in the part number locator tab of http://www.partstree.com/parts/ and replace it.

If it spins and will not engage it needs removing and the bendix gear on the starter is probably worn or damaged

This is not a simple question. If you intend to run the full 100A and want to use 2core and earth pvc cable then you need 50mm squared cross section conductors BUT if the cable is long you need to consider the voltage drop and may need a larger cross section cable. If yor want to run armoured cable, you can use 25mm squared conductors,but again you must take length into consideration

Yes. He is not a qualified generac technician or dealer. Sound like you need a control board. I recommend you find a generac authorized dealer to get a Tech out to fix it. I do it everyday at this electrical company.

No. They are fine. The voltage is 220. But the amperage is nearly nothing because its just for signaling the generator and switch when the powers out. I install, repair, and service generac products for a living.

This is not a DIY job unless you know what you are doing. But here is a link describing how it is done. I will not be responsible for any accident or damage done from installing it incorrectly. I would advise you to call a qualified electrician. http://members.rennlist.org/warren/install.html

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.
