No power! Please help!

This morning , the generator was on ... and I was using the microwave and it went out! So now I have no power to the microwave or the outlet under the table and the gfi in the bathroom wonít reset. We checked the breakers and the fuses in the master bedroom and they are all good.

I was just wondering if perhaps you overloaded the generator and it went into overload mode, meaning the generator is running but producing no power. Usually you just have to stop and restart the generator to clear, or hit a reset button.

If you did that, then it has to be a breaker or transfer switch.

colourful64....

You mentioned you were using the microwave when the power went out.

1. What amperage is your FR3?
2. If it’s 30 amp, I suspect somebody somewhere in your rig turned something else on at the same time, and you tripped the breaker.
3. At 30 amp, DO NOT turn on air conditioners at the same time, or hair dryers, or toaster, or electric water heater, or electric fry pans etc etc etc. Any appliance which is basically a controlled “short circuit” is too much at the same time on 30 amp.

At the gen itself. Take off cover, on the lower right side of the control panel. Small black toggle switch.
