Customer Questions & Answers

If my generator has two 120v outputs and one 240v output, do I connect all 3 outputs to the transfer switch or just the 240v?

Also, will the transfer switch stabilize the power in any way to protect TV's and computers?
Asked by: Anonymous
Ok, this is a good question. I will need to answer in two parts: 1. You generator transfer switch kit should have come with a generator plug cable that looks like the one I have selected to show you in this reply. It plugs into your generator and then to your power inlet box. That should be all you need to do to get power from your generator to your manual transfer box. You dont need to do anything else with the 120V plugs unless you want to use them for powering something directly from the generator. 2. The generator will not "stabilize" any power for your electronics. You will need a power conditioner for that. However, most surges can be take care of with a simple surge protector. Hope this helps.

Is this unit compatible with the Generac iX2000 generator?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, this unit needs a 240V three prong or four prong plug on your generator.

What is the box for seen next to the Generac 30amp transfer switch 6294.0 on your web site?

I would like to buy a transfer switch for a generator. Does the power cord fitting fit only generac equipment or is it a universal connector?
Asked by: Anonymous
The box that they are talking about is the power inlet box. This is where the generator plugs into the transfer switch. The box has a 4 prong 240V plug. This is a universal 240V plug that comes standard on most modern generators.

will this work with new Generac XT8000E?

just purchased the Generac XT8000E and its rated for 10K starting watts and 8K running watts, would the starting wattage burn this up or will this be ok? I just want to make sure I can get the most out of my generator if needed. once i figure out the transferswitch i need i will have it installed professionally.
Asked by: Steveo
Yes, this transfer switch would work very well. Depending on the size of your house and the load of the circuits you will be attaching to the transfer system, you should have no problem with generator you have and this transfer system.

Electrician installed this in a couple of hours and said this will work fine for my needs. Hooked in my well on 220 switch, den w/ tv, cable box, stereo & dvd on one 30A switch, freezer another 30A, fridge & two outlets on another 30A plus a few hall lights on the last. Of course, I can't run all at the same time but at least they're available to run with my 5500 generator. Haven't tested yet but confident it'll work.

Biggest problem was I thought this was a complete kit, but there was no wiring to go from the outlet box that mounts on the outside of the house, to the transfer box that mounts on the inside. Maybe it tells you that in the description, but I didn't see it before I ordered it so ended up having to run to Home Depot again to get the additional parts.

It has potential, I like that it creates room in the panel but the conduit is way undersized. None of the wires were color coded so you have to trace them all out. and it's to crowded for the inlet if you bring the wires out the left side of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator Transfer Switch Good product. Had a professional electrician install it. The only draw back is that it does not come with a flush plate so it can be mounted flush with wall. Sticks out from wall about 1/2 inch. Overall great buy and price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a good all-round kit If you are looking for a clean solution for adding a portable generator to your house wiring this will do it for you and can easily be installed by a competent DIY homeowner. The box acts as a 'sub panel' through which a set of house circuits will always flow. It includes two mechanically connected breakers that switch the power source to be either from your house main panel through a 60A breaker, or from the generator through a 30A breaker. (See picture.) This means you have to decide when you install this, which 6 circuits you will be able to power from your generator. The kit is very complete, the installation is straightforward and easy. It even includes the wire nuts needed to connect the wires together. What it does not include is the 60A breaker that is needed in your house load center, and this is not included because you need to have the one that matches your existing distribution panel so that makes perfect sense. Also included is a good heavy cable to go from the generator to the supplied external wall socket. You need to supply the 10/3 cable from the external socket to the transfer switch. In other words, everything that could be supplied is in the box. Instructions are clear and includes a template for mounting the box next to your distribution panel. The wires from the transfer switch to the load center are all labeled and color coded (look for the matching code such as 'B4' on the wire which corresponds to the 'B1' breaker). If one is looking for more flexibility one could also consider an interlock kit that attaches to your load center and feeding the generator power back through a 30A breaker. That approach allows you to select any circuits to be powered as needed instead of the 6 you selected at install time, (so long as their combined power demand is less than the generator capacity).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generator Transfer Switch Kit This unit is one that I have come to love to install in people's homes. In the past two years I have installed more of these type units than the natural gas versions that people like, but are not big fans of the cost. This manual version is a popular choice with a lot of local home owners. It is easy and fast to install (approx. 2 hours), easy to demonstrate to the home owner how to operate and has very little hard wire work to do for the unit. I could only find three things that were on the down side of this unit: 1. It does not come with a wire to run from the outside receptacle box to the transfer switch inside. 2. It does not give you any type of warning or indication to make sure you purchase a 60Amp 2 pole breaker for your house panel for this switch to wire to. 3. Unless you are recess mounting it in the drywall, the box looks very "industrial" if you surface mount it. If you are just an average homeowner and only have a basic knowledge of electrical, you would never know to purchase that breaker. It could have you running back to Home Depot for a second time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Retuned needed a 60 amp breaker to run Retuned for Reliance transfer switch , Generac needed a 60 amp breaker and was more complicated to install.
