What makes you think that it is the generator causing the thermostat problem? From what I see, problem is the incubator thermostat! If thermostat is working correctly, it should turn the heater on and off. The generator produces standard voltage, and would not care if it was running a fan, heater, or appliance, as long as voltage is correct.
I think you thermostat or relay for thermostat is sticking.
Frequency should be 60 cycles. But that is what generator should put out. Are you running the incubators with grounded cords and grounded generator. I don't see a relation between incubator running fine off wall outlet and not from generator outlet.?? Other than ground ?? Have you checked the generators voltage output and frequency?
Page 17 in the user manual shows a ground connection at the frame, I would take a jumper cable or similar cable and ground the generator to a water pipe or similar item that would ground the frame of the generator. It might male no difference, but worth trying. To check voltage a frequency you would have to have a voltmeter and a frequency counter or tachometer.
You did see the manual? Or already have one? Showing the ground at frame. Your house will have a ground rod , driven into the earth , that connects to your breaker box and utility meter. Generator needs the same type setup for critical situations.
For house it has to be 8 ft deep in most places, but the grounding rod for electric fence will work of the generator, worth trying.
Sure, take as long as you like. There should be a link i your email to get back,
!! good luck on the catching!
