Generator receptacle broken and display dead

Hello -

I have a Ridgid 6800 Watt generator that has a broken GFCI receptacle and the display doesn't work. I tested both sets of receptacles and neither has power. I suspect that's why the display doesn't work. The 220 receptacle does seems to work.

Can I just replace the broken GFCI receptacle with a new one? Is there anything special I need to know? Is the broken receptacle the reason the display doesn't work?

Thanks for your advice!

I would doubt the broken receptacle is affecting both receptacles or the display.

Did you make sure all the circuit breakers are pushed and locked in all the way ?

The two receptacles and the display are in a removable enclosure that has two plugs on the back. Have you removed that panel to make sure the plugs are on ?

PJmax - yep. You were right. The big twistlock was disconnected. The display came right up after I connected it.

I replaced the receptacle too. No surprises other than the price of black GFCI receptacles!

Thanks for your help!

Too bad you weren't closer. I have a case of black GFI receptacles.
They're a big hit in most houses.
