Hello, I have an issue with my transfer switch NOT switching when line power is cut and no power when activated manually. The generator starts normally and when the switch is suppose to switch to generator power nothing happens, expect a soft humm. To try and isolate the problem, I tried the manual switch process but there is no power to the house as there should be. Any idea the issue here? Thank you!

First step would be to check and see what the output voltage of the generator is and if the main breaker inside the generator is actually on and not tripped.
