Customer Questions & Answers

Can it run an ; 1100 w , air cond...

Asked by: Anonymous
The iX1600 portable generator can cover a wide range of household appliances and items, however the exact items it can cover will vary for each application. The iX1600 portable generator is rated for a continuous output of 1600 watts, with a rated amperage of 13.3 amps at 120 volts. This rating is when utilizing both the duplex style receptacles. You will want to ensure that all of the items you intend to run will not exceed this rating. Air conditioners typically require a considerable amount of surge (start up) wattage, which may exceed the available output of the generator. We recommend contacting the air conditioner manufacturer to determine the running and surge wattage requirements to ensure that it will not exceed the generator’s capabilities.

Can it run a refrigerator????

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Bert Since most refrigerators require less than 1200 watts to operate, this generator will successfully operate a refrigerator. However due to the 1600 watt operating limit, very little else can be added without overloading the circuit breakers on the generator. So the most you can expect is to operate a refrigerator and maybe one or two lights. Mike, The Home Depot Answer Man

Customer Reviews

iX 1,600-Watt Gasoline Powered Inverter Generator-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money After experiencing a power outage during Hurricane Sandy, I was excited to unpack my ix1600 so I could have some light and possibly some heat. It FAILED right out of the box. I oiled the unit as per instructions, put new gas into the unit and followed the start up procedures. After the engine started, I heard "crackle, crackle, snap, POP!!!" then the generator went into overload without anything plugged into the unit. The unit was brought into the Generac dealer for repair 3 WEEKS AGO! Generac's customer service is non-existant and they don't appear to be standing behind this piece of garbage. Buyer beware -- this unit is not made in the US as Generac advertises, but China.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD PRODUCT I have had this unit for 2 years and only been able to use it three times and those times it would not keep running or would not start. This unit has spent more time in the shop then in use. I contacted Generac for a refund and they refused. As soon as possible I will sell this unit and get a generator that works. I would not recommend anyone buy a generac. I was told Generac was the top of the line, you could not prove that by me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk After about 30 hours of use the engine just quit.I have tried for four days to get it running to no avail.Got spark but no fuel.Checked all the fuel lines just in case some dirt got in them all looked good.Sprayed gas in the carb and it ran for about two seconds.I suspect the fuel pump.Also when it was new it took about ten pulls to get it started.After I get it fixed I will sell it and buy a Honda.Word of advise,don't buy the piece of junk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator for the price I bought this generator for tailgating, and I was really worried about the noise. This generator runs pretty quiet. It's not as quiet as the Honda models, but with the generator in front of the car, you can barely hear it behind the car, especially when it is in FlexPower mode. It's been running great for me so far, and the build quality seems pretty good. Overall, it's a good portable generator, especially considering the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bill Again I am posting again as I posted before "Not recommending this product" Thjis is an update: I took my generator to Generac in North Bend, Wa. They stated a bad circuit boad and needed replaced after 25 hours and 14 months. They stated a 1 hour labor rate of 85.00 and 10-14 days. I picked it up yesterday and they charged me nothing in labor, even though was past 12 months. Not sure if shop or Generac themselves, but I am assuming an isolated case and will now update to recommend. Thank You generac, you did the right thing. It makes a BIG difference and again I will suggest your product.
