Wolf Product Generator Considerations

Cause:

Power Outage

Core Issue:

  • Can Wolf products run on a generator?
  • Do generators harm a product?
  • When connecting a Wolf product to a generator, what is the starting amperage?
  • Storm or other issue caused power outage, and only power to home is by generator or inverter
  • New construction installing a generator for power outages and trying to size it for appliances

Answer:

Wolf products can run on generators that supply enough wattage to power the product.

  • If the generator is connected to multiple products, ensure the generator is properly sized.
  • If the generator is not properly sized, damage to the product can occur.
  • For units that run on 120 volts, the power source must provide a minimum of 104 volts at all times.
  • For units that run on 240 volts, the power source must provide a minimum of 208 volts at all times.

Refer to the product installation guide for further information.
