Question about Honda 6370C - Parallel Power Kit For EU3000i

1 Answer

Honda EU30001 generator causes erratic pellet stove operation.

I have a Honda EU3000i generator for powering my Harman Invincible Pellet stove during power outages. The stove runs poorly on the power from the Honda-- the fan that blows the hot air into the room only operates intermitently whereas on house current it blows non-stop. Also the fire burns poorly as the combustion fan motor also operates weakly.
My refrigerator and electronics all work perfectly on the Honda power. The pellet stove performs poorly whether the other items are hooked up to the generator or I just run the stove alone.

Why can't this high-end Honda generator run my stove correctly? That's why I bought it!

Ok Motors and the like generally DO NOT really go all that well from a generator, what load does the Stove use?, You must add up the cumlitive "Wattages" of ALL things connected, see your generator is about 3000 Watts, 3KW, How much "headroom" is there between the two? Whats supplied versus whats being used? Purely inductive loads, like Motors etc, are less responsive than electronic loads. I suspect that your generator is NOT providing enough current to the Stove, especially when "Other" things are connected. also. Look, if the, any, generator is 3000 Watts really you should only load it up to a couple of KW's, 2.5KW being about maximum. To do what you are doing would require, IMHO, at least, 5KW, to get the "Headroom" of current drawn over current able to be delivered by the generator. Also inductive loads loose heaps of power and actually cause a higher draw. So that your answer, you must use it well, inside it's rating, not right up to the limit.

I cleaned my Harman Pellet stove today and when I went to start it the feed motor won't start. The blower runs for about 15 sec then shuts down


Test the feed motor with a jumper and wire power to it directly, if that fails to make it run you have a defective motor.

Harman pellet stove blower not coming on. All lights are on and not blinking.


well im not sure why a pellet stove question is here in the pool section , but I do own a pellet stove (and a few pools too) SO I can offer one thing to look for , there is a small switch on the side of your burn chamber (soup can looking thing) this switch is what controls your fan to come on . it works by sensing heat from burn chamber and then turning power on to fan , its possible this isn't passing any power on yours ?

If you are just running the blowers and what not, then yes you can. Blower motors do not take more than between 200 and 500 watts or so, so you should be okay running the blowers.

Inverter Generator Benefits
  • The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.

Honda EU3000i is rated to put out 15A but won't


If you attempt to use a 15 amp generator to power a 15 amp appliance you will have a big problem. Always plan to use no more than 80% of any power supply. You are currently trying to use the absolute maximum power this generator can supply, and it's probabally not rated for that load at continious use. Get a larger generator, or , a very sharp axe.

I hope this information was useful for you.
