Today I followed the instuctions on my generator and ran it to break it in. I was supposed to run it at half load. So, I plugged in a fridge and two chest freezers. Still only got to 775 watts when all three were running. How do I know this? Because I plugged in my KILL-A-WATT. Very handy item. This is where my question comes in. When I pressed the hz button, it was reading anywhere from 49-61 hz. The volts were constant, but the cycles were jumping all over the place. This can't be good. I have heard that certain electronics are very sensitive (just like me
) and can be damaged with changes in current.
When I plug it in a wall outlet, it reads 59.9 with no change at all. Any input or thoughts?
