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: MikeD
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: MikeD
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: lcotcher
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.

30 Amp Indoor Generator Transfer Switch Kit for 6-10 Circuits is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 26.

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 Overall, not a bad product. Works fine. Biggest problem was I thought this was a complete kit, ... Overall, not a bad product. Works fine. 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Switch Design But Wrong Box for Outdoor Receptacle Nice kit that included the hookup wires and most connectors for installation; well-thought out to keep you from having to run around Home Depot looking for attachment parts. But somebody wasn't paying attention to the probable application when they included a receptacle connection box for your generator cord that can't be used outdoors, since it does not have a flip cover over the exposed receptacle - it's only a NEMA-1 type indoor box, and of course you'll be using your generator outdoors. Even the sketch on the instructions shows the box being mounted to an outside wall and there is a comment stating that the box keeps you from having to run a generator cord through a window. Really? Not if the box has to be mounted on an inside wall. You'll likely need to purchase the other receptacle box that is available but not included in this kit. I'd have given this kit a 5 star rating if it weren't for the receptacle box problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Idea of product is ok but not as user friendly as they profess it to be. The flexible conduit length is a joke its so short, and doesn't come even with a second end to hook into your house panel. The breaker selection should be able to be made prior to ordering otherwise when you get it like i did you find you have to go but the appropriate ones anyway, thus saving nothing but buying this "kit". Save yourself money and hassle and just go but a transfer panel and the breakers and wire yourself, you will save money compared to this kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation and function of the product was a good experience. The pre-wired switch made for a simple installation. (Be sure to turn off the main power before connecting any circuits) The switch works as designed except for the 2 amp meter indicators that don't seem to show any read-out in my case but I doesn't interfere with basic use of the product. The switch does transfer current very nicely to the user-selected house circuits using my gas generator for running the freezer, refrigerator, furnace, microwave, garage door opener, water heater, & bathroom outlets. I would feel awfully dumb if I had a generator and couldn't use it to run these essential appliances when the neighborhood electrical power was out for a few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No fuss no muss The only way to go for a safe and efficient use of a back o generator. Everything that was needed for the installation was included (except for the 60 amp breaker). This installation is not for a rookie DYI, but for a seasoned veteran it shouldn't be a problem. Better yet call a pro to have it installed.
