The original transfer switch work fine for a while but failed over time. It started making a clicking noise and then failed after a month. I am living in this and it is important that I get it fixed and I cannot afford to pay a pro.


mine died in the first season and did the same thing. do you have a 30 amp plugin or a 50 amp plug in? since I upgraded to the ts-50 I have been going on 6 years with no issues.

How do I bypass? The power cord goes directly to the main breaker and then to the transfer switch. I'm not sure what to do with the wires to the transfer switch.


the power cord shouldnt be going to the main breaker , it should go to the transfer switch first.

see this post for some diagrams

post for ts-30

You can't bypass it. If you do, SHorepower would backfeed into the generator, and generator would backfeed through the shorepower cord. That might let out the mystery blue smoke.
