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

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.

You will need to purchase a 50 amp breaker for your electrical panel. The panel comes with 8 circuit breakers including a 30amp which I didn't use and replaced with 2 15 amp breakers and ran another neutral.

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.
