Answer: 
Yes, each of the switches is wired as a 120V circuit. If you connect this to a 120V only generator you will only have one "side" so you should really only connect half of the switches. It is possible to feed both sides from a single 120V input, but you will be running a risk of overloading the generator, and will likely be in violation of code requirements.

Answer: 
Yes, this can easily be used with a 120 volt generator. During installation you will connect the single hot output from your generator to both hot inputs of the transfer switch and then remove the handle tie on the transfer switch by loosening two screws. This will make it a 6 circuit 120 volt installation.

Will this work with a generator that has a L14-20 output?

This question is from 30 Amp 250-Volt 7500-Watt Non-Fuse 6-Circuit Transfer Switch Kit
Asked by
Al

August 31, 2012
I see it says there is an extra 20 amp cord plug. Is that All I need? Does that convert between the L14-20 output of the smaller generator I own (Homelite HG3500). I plan to upgrade to a larger propane generator (Sportsman GEN7000LP) eventually, but I'd like to know that either one would work. Would I have to get a separate converter? Would there be any other issues? Thanks!

Answer: 
The converter is a small plug adapter. That will connect directly to your HG3500. The supplied 10 ft cord is set for 30amp, as well the Wall Adapter is set for 30amp. So, there will be no major issues upgrading. The breakers are all 20 amp or 15amp, so 20 will be fine. But, if you are like me and have a Well Pump, I find this transfer switch a little too small for my GP7500E. It might be worth it for you Read More

But, if you are like me and have a Well Pump, I find this transfer switch a little too small for my GP7500E. It might be worth it for you to buy a 10 circuit transfer switch, about an extra $100 to get more use out of your GEN7000LP, when you get it.
This transfer switch is perfect for your HG3500, but if upgrading is a definite plan, Id plan ahead with the 10 circuit - Model # 31410CRK Read Less

Answer: 
It does not "convert" the plug end. You need to remove the 30 Amp plug end and then wire on the 20 amp plug. I had to do this as well and it was a very easy task.

Answer: 
Yes, this will work with your generator. There is nothing else you need. During installation you will have to replace the 30 amp plug on the cord with the 20 amp plug that is included with the kit. No other adapters are neccesary. If you upgrade the generator you can change back to a 30 amp plug at that time.

Generator compatibility

This question is from 30 Amp 250-Volt 7500-Watt Non-Fuse 6-Circuit Transfer Switch Kit
Asked by
IowaCowboy
Springfield, MA
September 4, 2012
I am wondering if the Reliance transfer switch is compatible with all portable generators with a 30 amp outlet (particularly the Briggs & Straton Storm Responder 5500 watt model #030430-2) and I am wondering if the transfer switch is compatible with circuit breaker panels that have the ground and neutral on the same bus). My concern is regarding the neutral.

Answer: 
That is essentially the same generator that I use, and it works great. The neutral and ground on the same bus is an older and I believe, no longer allowed, way of wiring a panel. It should not present any problems for you using this kit though, the kit uses a common neutral and ground from the switch and switches the load side of the breakers.

Answer: 
IT should work. Your solar panels have a separate inverter and isolation system (typically). This kit will wire in to the panel on the load side of your breakers, so it should have no bearing on your solar panels.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Installation requires someone handy with tools. It took me 4 hours to install, most of the time was spend drilling/sawing/hammering a 1" hole into the back of the existing panel mounted in an outside wall, with the transfer switch mounted on the inside, behind the power panel. When wiring make sure the power is off, I even taped over the screws that are on the hot side, at the box input from the power company. Since my generator is 120V only both circuits are in parallel, there was no need to balance.Gen output is 4KW max, a Sportsman LP. Power for a handful of lights, all LED plus 2 refrigerators is under 500 watts down to less than a hundred when both fridges are cycling. Had to extend some of the wires. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price and excellent product Easy to install, great instructions and how to videos on their website. If you live in an area prone to losing power and you need to run a generator, this switch will make your life easier. No more open doors with extensions running through or listening to the generators noise. Glad I finally got off my butt and installed this switch. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engineering Very good item with good information. Transfer switch Electrical plug Safety installation. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy For DIY's - HDK Model Recommended NOTE: If you have a generator that only puts out 120 volts, only 3 of the 6 circuits can be used (you can't split 120v) or power a 240v circuit in your home . An output option of 240v must be available from your generator, which is usually marked on a switch. When Superstorm Sandy hit I was without power for 5 days and vowed, "Never again," so I purchased a generator, but extension cords running everywhere during a 1-day power outage the following summer was a problem and I realized it wouldn't help my furnace, if it were winter. There are two versions of this 6-circuit transfer kit. The CRK and HDK models are identical with the exception of the circuit breakers. The CRK model uses round breakers provided by Reliance, while the HDK model uses standard breakers found in any hardware store. If a breaker went bad (no matter how unlikely) I wanted to be able to have a standard breaker replaced in minutes, rather than days waiting for a replacement breaker from Reliance. Therefore, I recommend purchasing the HDK model. I have an older home (purchased a few months before Sandy arrived), with 100 amp service, and I use a 5000W generator. Most of my time was spent checking the main panel to verify the outlets and lights corresponding to the circuits as marked on the panel (not all were correctly marked). I also had to change the plug on the 10' cord to the 20 amp, which is provided in the kit. After installing another small backer board to the wall, on which to mount the Reliant Transfer Panel, I was ready to proceed. Measuring twice (often, 3 times) and cutting once made mounting the outside service box a simple task. I have no 240v circuits, so I separated the two switches on the transfer panel that were tied together, No instructions for that - you rotate the "sleeve" in the middle of the switches and the threaded bar will exit out one end. A FEW TIPS: 1. Have a light source ready when you turn off the main breaker, if your installation area isn't really well lit from natural light. 2. REMEMBER! Your house service panel isn't completely safe even when you turn off the main breaker. Those two thick wires coming into the panel are from the outside. They are still "live" and can kill you. Respect them. 3. Have all the tools you'll need with you. 4. Double check your connections BEFORE turning the power back on. The wiring instructions are ALMOST idiot proof if you aren't color blind, but if your eyesight isn't great, finding the corresponding letters on each of the red and black wires can be daunting - especially the "E" and "F" wires. I got out my reading glasses and taped together each corresponding pair down low inside the main panel box after running the wires into it. I realized that after I trimmed some to the length I needed, the marked portion of the wire would end up on the floor. The actual wiring and wire nutting inside the panel took less than a 1/2 hour. Overall, I spent about 5 hours getting everything installed from start to finish. The power meters on the Transfer Panel that show the draw from each of the circuit splits (A-C-E and B-D-F) are useful and clued me in that I was too heavy on one side (I forgot a freezer unit was plugged in on the same side as my refrigerator). I just switched it with a circuit from the other side that was drawing far less power. I'm extremely satisfied with this kit. A friend spent over $7000 for an automatic, self-diagnosing system that he had to have a professional install, but I'm willing to spend the two minutes starting my generator and flipping switches manually for only $300.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install Easy to,follow instructions. Put inside above my Main CB Panel. Took about an hour to mount box and run wires. Ran 6/4 Romex NM from outside plug. Easy to understand operation of transfer switches. Marked everything well. My wife even understands it. Test with generator for 30 min. No issues........ October 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don't know why I didn't do this sooner! Go to the Reliance Controls website and download the installation videos for this product and you CAN NOT go wrong! I was a bit intimidated about working directly on the main circuit box but the videos showed very simply how to go through the installation. I under 2 hours I had it completely installed, and with my 5550 watt generator I'm able to run practically my whole house, including heat and/or central A/C with the flip of a switch!! I really should have done this years ago. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install - safe and legal way to run a portable generator during power outages. Straight forward installation; no surprises. Should take about two to three hours to install if you have a surface mounted panel and surface mount this switch and conduit. I decided to flush mount the switch since the subpanel I was connecting to was flush mounted. I opted not to purchase the flush mount kit; instead I recessed the switch using a 1X backer board. I then brought the sheetrock right to the box and finished it. This is a great kit for the DYIer, as long as you got a basic understanding and respect of your electrical system. July 21, 2014
