Disconnecting the Neutral Bond to Frame

Updated 4 months ago by Juan Velez

For certain generator applications, a qualified electrician may recommend removing the neutral bond to the generator frame, resulting in a "floating neutral." Feeding electrical power to a house through a transfer switch which does not switch neutral may be one example. These instructions illustrate a method for removing the neutral bond from Champion Power Equipment generators.

Tools required: 7mm and 8mm wrenches or sockets and electrical tape.

Time required: 0.15 hr (9 minutes).
