Using the KOOLGLIDE with Portable Generator, Temporary Power Pole, Industrial Plants

The KOOLGLIDE tool can be used with power supplied by a portable generator, as long as the generator is 110V and the generator is set in the CONSTANT mode.

If you press the tool POWER light and the tool blinks 3 times but there is no response from the tool, this could be an indication that there may be a power load problem.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING TIP 1  Check to see if the settings from L – to M – to H can be changed. 

IF THEY CAN BE CHANGED, this is an indication that the problem stems from low voltage. Possible causes are:

Improper power cord gauge:  make sure that the power cord gauge is 14 gauge or higher.

Generator is set on IDLE and not on RUN:  set the generator on RUN, or place another load on the generator to bring it up to the proper voltage output.

Getting low voltage from the outlet:  check the voltage output.  KOOLGLIDE tools run on voltage between 95 – 145 V.

 

TROUBLESHOOTING TIP 2  Check to see if the settings from L – to M – to H can be changed. 

IF THEY CANNOT BE CHANGED, you may be experiencing problems from high voltage that could be caused by:

Getting too high voltage coming from the generator or other power source, e.g. temporary power pole or fluctuating power in an industrial plant:  check voltages from all sources.

Older KOOLGLIDE tools:  KOOLGLIDE tools with serial number less than 10000, may not run at extremely high voltages: Contact the KOOLGLIDE service provider in your area for further information.

Generator setting:  If the generator is set on IDLE and not on RUN, set the generator on RUN, or place another load on the generator to bring it up to the proper voltage output.
