I have a Briggs & Stratton 10kw standby generator. It powers everything nicely except for my Lennox furnace. My furnace is 9 years old, and works fine with the street power, but the circuit board will not accept the generator power. The voltage coming out of the generator is set exactly to the street power. The generator is grounded properly. My lennox dealer has no clue why this is happening. My electrician thinks the sine wave produced by the generator is not compatible with the circuit board on the furnace. Does anyone have a solution to this dilemma, other than buying a different furnace?

Thank you for the response. Your explanation is sound and logical. I will give it a try. I'll let you know how it turns out.

To HKestenholz:

I ran a ground wire from the chassi of the Standby generator to the main house ground. Still no response from the furnace. The Generator already has a ground wire going directly into the breaker panel. The generator is a permanent mount, natural gas powered unit that was installed by an electrician. Any more ideas?
