    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. Powers hard-wired appliances such as your furnace, well pump and lights

Installation was pretty straight forward after watching a few youtube videos. It would have been nice if the packaging listed the items that were not included on the box itself: 10/3 romex and 50A double pole breaker.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great transfer switch Great transfer switch and very easy to operate. The only downside is that you will need a knockout punch to install it in Canada as it does not have pre-drilled holes on it. That is why I give 4 stars.

I am not a electrician but do get the basic, I did not need to use instructions and got it to work "A+ is that i did not burn my house down or shock myself" This transfer switch is running my furnace, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, garage,and all my lights "all lights are led". I did not hook up washer and dryer, and/or my gaming room. I run most of everything i use on the daily. I run this with a Generac gp7000e, and i don't even hear the generator strain at all. overall very happy with my purchase and would suggest anyone that want to run there house without running cables all over.

I purchased this online, had it shipped to the house, installed it myself, the connections where all marked and easy to read. I have the necessary circuits for a power outing, furnace, two sump pumps, fridge/freezer, a few lights and outlets. That’s all I needed, simple to operate as well.

    if I purchase a generator do I need this transfer switch

    Asked by: Brandy
    To better answer your question. It all depends what you want to do. A transfer box is installed to your electrical panel so that when the power goes out you fire up your portable generator and you turn on the transfer switch to automatically power up the selected breakers in your electrical panel. For example, you would set up your fridge and freezer, furnace, some plugs/lights in the house to the transfer box. When the power goes out , you switch on the transfer box which diverts your selected breakers to work though the generator. If you choose this option, you should get a 7500 watt generator . You could get away with a 5000 watt but it all depends on what you are going to power up in your house with the transfer box. In my house, I have a fridge, freezer, propane furnace motor, well pump, kitchen lights, plugs in living room connected to tv and my office plug with the internet and portable phone connection and desk lamp. A transfer box must be installed by a licensed electrician. OPTION 2: This option is to just plug in extension cords to the generator and run them through the house. WARNING: The longer the extension, the less power you get out of it. For example, if you run a 100ft regular extension cord (usually rated at 14 gauge) to your fridge or freezer, you will most likely burn out the motor on your appliance. It could even start a fire. 14-Gauge Cords: Any 14-gauge cord between 0 and 50 feet long will adequately handle loads between 10 and 15 amps. 12-Gauge Cords: If your tool load is between 10 and 15 amps and the length of the cord is 50 to 100 feet, you need a 12-gauge cord to safely power any tool. This is a great extension cord for many purposes.
