    Default Cruizer, a question on a generator

    Cruizer, my welders are running fine,but I have a question on a portable generator which no one at this point has been able to solve. Just wondering if you can help. I bought it reconditioned a few years ago and never really checked the generator portion when I bought it.I checked out and started the motor,which was fine. It produces 110 volts at each respective 110 volt receptacle fine,but when I check for220 volts at its receptacle,there is 0 volts. On this very receptacle when I check across each hot lug independently I get 110 volts as I should,but when I check for the combined total at both hot lugs I get zero. I am confused on this one. I know this section is for welding questions,but so far have been unable to get an answer that may help reslove the problem. Then to,I don't know if it is even worth fixing given the potential cost. I bougt it from Home Depot and failed to check the generator portion when I purchased it.I guess I thought it would work properly being just reconditioned. Thanks for any input.

    Obviously I'm not Cruiser, but my guess would be that the recepical isn't wired correctly. both hots are wired to the same leg of the generator.

    J Hall, That would also be my guess, If you go from hot to neutral and get 115 on each leg it should mean they are both tied to the same 115V leg.

    I bought a generator from Costco and had to return it 29 days later when fuel started dumping out the bowl. A week after I returned it I received a recall in the mail.

    Which model is it?

    By chance it doesn't have a 120v/240 toggle switch on it?
