Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product for my home I love this product and the setup was a breeze. Great product all around. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Clearly not what I expected The generator looks good, but looks are deceiving. The gen has 4.6 hrs on it and doesn't run. The time we needed power, it failed. We have two codes which are flashing "under voltage and under frequency". We have contacted GE over three weeks ago and still no word as to when it will be fixed or replaced. I choose GE over all the other brands thinking it would be of high quality above all other standards. I now wish I went with another manufacturer and probably would had saved some money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by best purchase! We purchased a generator early summer and we love it!!! A week after it was installed our power went out and within a few minutes the generator kicked on and left us with ease and comfort. I would recommend a home generator to anyone. Of course the whole experience would not be complete until we mention our great electrician- George Basile. He was wonderful. He made sure we understood everything and spent time going over all that we needed to know and then some. He even called a week later to make sure the generator came on as scheduled for the weekly test and if that wasn't enough he stopped by twice to check around. He is truly a consciences and highly trained skilled professional. We would recommend him to anyone. Thanks George!! September 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It was therre when we needed it! We had 30 guests at our house for Thanksgiving dinner. At 12:30, when 3 ovens, the cooktop, 3 crock pots, the coffee pot, 3 refrigerators and two freezers all were in full swing, a skidding vehilcle took out a utility pole. Within a minute, our new generator was at nearly max output, and powered our house for 4 hours. Can you imagine the disaster, if we had not installed this great generator just the month before? We would have had no lights, no heat, no water (no flush!), no food; many calls to the power company... as it was, not many of the guests were even aware of what had happened. Thank you, GE, and thanks to Pete, John and Pat who did the installation. December 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by To Soon to Tell It can take up to 5 attemps to start on auto, 3 times not starting at all. Installer has been good about responding. Still don't trust the unit because of this. Motor sounds like it is missing when it is running. I was told at the time of installation that this would happen. I was told by the Tech that Briggs & Stratton say this is acceptable & should clear up with time. The tech also speculated that the electronic gov. may be an issue. It just sounds like it might cut off when running after spending that much money. March 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best purchase I made. We've had our 17Kw generator over 4 years and it has performed flawlessly. We loose power 6-8 times a year and every time the generator kicks in within 90-120 seconds and powers us back up. I bought this size to run our central A/C in the summer which is has. Last Christmas we had a sever ice storm and lost power for 5 ½ days. We powered our two neighbors plus our house with no problems. During this ice storm outage, I shut down the generator every two days just to check the oil. After 5 ½ days of near constant running, it was a little over ¼ quart low…no big deal. We have the generator serviced annually by our installer to keep it in tip-top shape. Best money you can spend. I recommend this generator to anyone think of getting one. April 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it I bought this because of my bed ridden mother and shortly after its instillation we had power failure and I didn't know it until my neighbors came to the door wondering how i had power when the neighborhood had none. July 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GE 17KW Geenerator The GE 17KW Standby Generator is probably the best value for a generator of this size available. My generator was installed about 18 months and it has provided me with nothing but steady and reliable service. The installation was completed in a day, without problems, and the installers from New Hampshire Generator Installers were knowledgeable and friendly. May 21, 2014
