Watts Gas

Will a gas generator fry my TV?

I have a 7500 Watt gas generator. Can I run my Sony LCD large screen TV on it without frying it because of the "dirty power" from the generator? I have a high end Monster Surge protector. Is that enough?

I have a Briggs&Stratton 5500 watt generator which connects via a transfer panel to power my house during power outages. It powers the well pump, fridge, freezer, microwave and toaster ovens, furnace, a few outlets, and lots of lights. I use my satellite receiver and television in the kitchen and in the rec room. It also powers the computer. I've never had a problem with damaging anything while on generator power.

Unless your generator has major problems in terms of output voltage and high spikes its output should be perfectly acceptable for your television. Such spikes are often introduced on the main power line from industrial sites with large motors or heavy load switching, or induced by nearby lightning strikes. None of these will be present while your generator is connected. A surge suppressor wouldn't get in the way, but really isn't intended for generator use.

Make sure your generator is operating properly and connected to the house properly and safely. You won't have any problems.
