I could not find that module.

The one I found was the "latching" one Agastat Solid State 12 Volt Timing Module VTM4QDD.

Is there a way to make this work?

My source was Prime Electric, in Deep Park, NY. www.primelec.com

I can't find it on their website now, but I did see it on a few other web locatios with a Google search.

I found my invoice. I bought it 4/24/11, so they had it then! My cost was $12.99, plus sales tax (I'm in NYS), shipping, & handling, so it came to $23.25 for me.

The resistor was purchased at the local Radio Shack. Very common item.

Could you look at the latching one and see if I can use that? I have a bid on eBay I might win.

Lou,

I looked at it, and it looks very similar. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about electronics if it will function the same. My suggestion would be to pass on the eBay bid until you know for sure if it will work. (My guess, reading the description, is that it will, but it will likley need a different resistor. The resistor is what sets the delay time.)

Try calling Prime Electronics in the morning, and see if they have it or can get it, or like I said, I saw it other places on the web, but just for more $$$.

Lou - I went through some olld emails, pm's, and and forum threads, and figured out who first posted and described this mod. He still posts actively, so I wrote him and asked him if the VTM4QDD is an acceptable replacement for the 1QCD, and if so, what capacity resistor should be used to achieve the 5 second delay.

As best I can tell, the module that I used is designed to provide a 0.5 to 10 second delay. The one that you found provides a 3 to 60 second delay. Since the resistor capacity determines the exact amount of delay, it should just be a matter of getting the right resistor.

I'll let you know if/when I get a reply.

Thanks. I sure would liked to have gotten the same unit as the post, but I had already bid before I realized the the eBay search engine gave me a different module.

For those of you with a Yamaha 2400 like I have, have you been able to run the MW with it???? I have tried mine, and it will only work at 20% setting, which is useless

yea, Mine runs the microwave just fine and at altitude to boot. I live at 7200 ft and was in Bryce Canyon Utah a couple of weeks ago at over 8000 ft and it worked flawlessly.

Hmmm, I think I have run it, but can't remember for sure.

Mine runs the MW fine! All settings.

Will yours start your AC? if not, sounds like an output problem with the generator. If the AC starts fine, a problem with the MW. See if the generator will run your home MW.
