Reliance Controls 31406CRK Reviews & Ratings

Product Q&A

Hi Mike, I have a B&S 3500 (eSeries, formerly available from your website) generator. Would you recommend the Reliance Model 31406CRK for this generator? My hope would be to power my oil-fired boiler and 1-2 other critical outlets during an outage. Since this transfer switch supports 30 amps as well, presumably it would work if I upgrade the generator sometime down the road? Thanks for your advice.

Answer
Thank you for the inquiry!

The Briggs & Stratton generator in reference is fitted with a 20 amp, 4-prong twist locking receptacle. This connection, the L14-20R will not be capable of connecting directly to the Reliance Controls 30 amp power inlet box, PB30 due to this unique connection.

Through the use of the 31406CRK kit, you will be able to use the 20 amp cord adapter to create a compatible power cord. This will allow you to power your desired circuits as well as accommodate a larger generator in the future.

I have this Briggs and Stratton 1600w/2000w inverter generator. Can't I have a 6 circuit manual transfer switch installed and just select one circuit at a time to power one (run circuit for sump pump, then turn it off and then turn to gen the circuit for furnace, etc,) I have limited space and a back problem that's why I can only use a smaller generator. I look forward to your help

Answer
Thank you for your inquiry....

Your best option would be to go with a manual transfer switch and then manage the loads you need. However, since your generator only outputs 120V you would require a 120V only type transfer switch.

The following model would be recommended as it offers the most circuits and gives the most flexibility....

6 Circuit 120V Manual Transfer Switch

Or you can go with the next size down to save in cost....

4 Circuit 120V Manual Transfer Switch

Can I use this with Honda EU3000i Handi generator?

Answer
Thank you for your interest in Electric Generators Direct!

The Honda EU3000 Handi is fitted with a 30A 120V high voltage connection. As such, this transfer switch and inlet box will not be compatible accessories. We would suggest that your review of our 120v products for compatible equipment.

We feature two good options for transfer switches. Either the indoor switch,
30114A or the outdoor equivalent, 30114B

Now all you will need is a 10' 30-amp 3-prong power cord; PC3110.

Can the 240v circuit breaker be divided into 2 20 amp 120 circuits by removing the jumper shown in the picture?

Yes, you can make the 20A 240V circuits into 2 - 20A 120V circuits.

I am wondering if this transfer witch is compatible with all generators with a 30 amp 120/240 volt outlet. My generator is the Briggs & Stratton Storm Responder 5500 watt model number 030430-2 and I want to make sure that there is not an issue with the neutral and that the generator is compatible. Also my circuit breaker panel has the ground and neutral on the same bus.

Answer
Your generator has a bonded neutral. It will work with the 6 circuit manual switch. The only time the bonding makes any difference with manual switches is when connecting GFI circuits in the home. They tend to nuisance trip when connected to a bonded neutral generator. The solution is to buy a transfer switch, like the Reliance "x" series that transfers the neutral as well as the hots.

Again, if you are wiring up lights/fridge/furnace fan/sump pumps you will be fine. If you add a kitchen outlet or bath outlet (near sinks and GFI) to the manual switch then you may experience the nuisance tripping.

Can I use this transfer switch with a 4kW generator that has a NEMA L5-30 outlet? If not, what transfer switch could I use?

Answer
The 31406CRK is a 120/240V type transfer switch and will not work properly with your 120V only output.

The following switch is recommended and unfortunately it is not available in a kit so you would purchase each item individually....

Gen-Tran 300660 Manual 120V Transfer Switch

Gen-Tran 30A Inlet Box - 120V

30A 3-Prong 120V Cord

When I use this transfer switch, do I still need to shut off the main breaker to prevent feeding the main power lines?
Jacob

Answer
No, the manual transfer switch properly disconnects you from the utility power so you do not need to turn off your main breaker.

I have a home theater system in my living room that I want to power during outages; I have been informed, however, that due to power fluctuations caused by generators - in my case, a Troy-Bilt model 01919; 5500-watt - damage to the electronics may result, and this is not recommended. Can you advise?

Answer
Any sensitive electronics should only be powered by an inverter style generator which produces true 120V output. The largest model we offer is the Honda EU6500ISA which is a 5500 watt model or the Honda EM5000IS which is also a 4500 watt model. See links for additional info:

I read in your review about an 8000 watts generator being ok to use.... how about an 8500 watt???
Paul Virag

Answer
With this being a 30A system the max wattage you can run through it is 7500 watts. However, when properly sizing a generator you want to size it to 80% of the generators running capacity so when a large load kicks in the unit has enough flexibility to handle it without sacrificing voltage. So, yes a 8500 watt generator will work great with this transfer switch kit.
