    Overview

    Model # 6853 Store SKU # 1001151352

    Generac's 6853 HomeLink Upgradeable Manual Transfer Switch is a pre-wired electrical device that's installed next to your home's circuit panel. During an outage, it delivers power to hard-wired appliances (such as furnace, well pump and lights) with the push of a button, safely and easily eliminating the need for multiple extension cords. It comes standard with 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits. When you're ready to install an automatic home standby generator, a certified electrician will change out the panel located in the HomeLink with an automatic switch upgrade panel and new faceplate and it's ready to be connected to a home standby generator (11 kW maximum).

    1. Upgradeable so it can later be converted to an automatic home standby transfer switch
    1. Power source indicator lights inform you when you have utility or generator power present
    1. Powers hard-wired appliances such as your furnace, well pump and lights
    1. 8 circuits, expandable to 10 circuits accepts standard, tandem, GFCI and Arc Fault breakers
    1. Works with generators equipped with GFCI outlets (no switch neutral accessory kit required)
    1. Prevents dangerous back-feeding to avoid injuring utility line workers

Installation was moderately difficult, requiring strong electrical and construction skills. The installation instructions are insufficient. Fortunately I found an excellent privately made installation video online. During my post installation testing the switch worked perfectly until I tried to switch from generator power back to utility power. It would not switch back and stayed on generator power. Generac customer support could not help and only gave me contact info for 3 local servicemen who were not capable of helping me either. Ultimately I figured out how to manually switch back to utility power. Still haven't solved the problem. Overall experience was extremely frustrating.

This box only has a entry/exit point on each end (in the area of the wall studs) for the circuit box wiring and the generator supply line and they only include one plate for the strain relief and a blank for the opposite end, meaning you only have one port of entry/exit for all wiring. There is a 1" hole with plug in the top of the box, but it is directly above the Gen switch and too close to the terminals to make it practical to bring the gen supply in there. With this said, the design leaves you little choice but to bring the gen supply wiring into the main breaker panel and then back thru the same conduit whip that they provide for the circuit supply leads. The only other choice would be to drill your own hole for another strain relief. There should be at least a couple of knock outs in the top and bottom of the box. The gen supply connector box also does not include a cover for the male terminals, but you can order it separately. I did not see anything that would have indicated that the cover is optional until I looked at the owners manual. This cover should be mandatory and not optional, since the terminals should be protected against moisture. The moral of the story is: Go to a store that stocks Gen switches so you can take a good look at the design instead of buying sight unseen online. I would not have bought this one if I had known about these aspects of the design up front. Maybe all brands are similar, but in my opinion this one is a poorly designed for sure.
