Standby Generator Problems

5 months 3 weeks ago - 4 weeks 2 days ago #2356 by davefollmers

Hi,

I have a standby generator that we use during power outages (yes, we have a transfer switch) and have had some problems with appliances after using the generator. A couple of months ago our Bose radio quit working after using the generator and yesterday when we used it our microwave and cordless phone quit working.
I've checked the ground and it's OK
I've used a volt meter and it registers idential to the regular house current >> 115V and 220V
Maybe it was "just" time for these things to go out, but it would be a strange coincidence that all quit working during the time I used my generator.
Any suggestions on what I should check?

Hi Dave,

I'm assuming your generator was in use when these items went. How long were you measuring the voltage for, as it may be a spike that caused these things to go?
