Will Never Buy Another Generac
Can't really rank the unit as I am still trying to get it to run. I building an Aquaculture business and needed a generator as backup to our local power company. I could not find a dealer within 100 miles of where I live that was not booked up for the next 6 months, so ordered the unit off of the internet. A good company and they are helpful. I prepped the site and a retired electrician wired it in to my building. When we set it we had a hard Imelda opening the unit. The manual said to... more

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Patrick,
We are sorry to learn of the issues you've encountered. It is always best to have an independent authorized dealer install the unit, as these certified professionals have completed training courses tailored to installing and servicing our line of automatic standby generators. Given the unit's current symptoms, working with an independent authorized service provider will be the easiest way to ensure any applicable warranty coverage is provided to your generator. While it sounds like the first servicing party you tried contacting does not have any immediate availability, contacting an alternative servicing option near you may yield a different result. For a complete list of independent authorized service providers near you, you can use your postal code for searching purposes here: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator?cid=frm-105-ab

Lastly, please know that product registration allows us to initiate your warranty coverage. Considering this, along with your current servicing needs, we recommend registering your unit if you have yet to do so. If you have any other product-related comments, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

Smm Installation
I purchased two modules one for my electric range and one for my dryer. The original specs said that you could program the switches so that the appliances would be totally disabled during generator operation. However, the revised specs eliminated that option. That should be okay as I doubt if I would ever use these appliances during power outages. I also think they should have included rear entry power knockouts.
Pros: Easy To Use, Doesn't require direct wiring to transfer switch.
Cons: Needs rear entry knockouts for power feeds
