Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use a full sysnthetic 5W-30 Mobil1 (Car engine motor oil). Oil that came with generator is 10 w 30 and designed for 4 cycle engine.

Also, where can I get a gasoline without ethanol?
Asked by: OOTRA
I would recommend using a non synthetic oil for the first 30 hours of operation before switching to a full synthetic. The mfg also recommends breaking in the generator for 30 hours before placing full load draws on the generator. They also recommend changing out the provided oil after 20 hours of use. I changed mine out after 10 hours to a non synthetic. After 30 hours I will consider a full synthetic. Hope this helps... We have several options for non ethanol fuel where I live. All are premium non ethanol fuel. We have Cenex stores that carry it and some Conoco stations. That is a good choice, that is what I use on all my small engines..

Is it possible to switch to propane fuel? What is the cost? Can it be made to run both propane and gasoline?

Asked by: racyt
To switch to propane fuel, you would need to change so many components (if they are even available) that it would be more cost effective to sell your generator and buy one that was specifically designed to run on both propane and gasoline.

Page 21, of the operation manual, item 4 says that the 120/240-Volt, 30-Amp Twist Lock Outlet (NEMA 14-30R): Outlet can supply either 120V or 240V output. How does one select 120v or 240v and what protection is there to prevent the wrong voltage from being used?
Asked by: David
Outlets are 120 twist lock cable goes to separate service panel which disburses power .

It was easy to set up wheels and hand grips. I filled it with provided oil and gas. It started and ran noticable more quiet then my older genrac. The battery came charged and the gen start with a quick push of the start button. The reason I bought this unit was i wanted to have electric start and was hoping for some a little quieter then my older generator. Im glad i bought this model . Its set up in my shed and feeds into its own 12 breaker panel im ready for a blizzard and not worried about trying to pull start it during a storm in the dark when its 20 something degrees out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean electricity and well made Li Fan has made this excellent product for Westinghouse. Clean electricity. Easy to install wheel and handle kit with pins, provided. Fired up immediately with supplied battery. Just add provided oil, your gas, connect negative battery cable and its up n running. Its even quieter than my old 4400 watt Homelite generator. I recommend always mixing a measured amount of fuel stabilizer in gasoline. Also I recommend running it 30 minutes a month to keep battery charged. I also bought a Wen cover for it, 420cc engine should last a long time, even though it will be stored inside. Great value. Well made.

The unit comes with everything you need and started on the first push of the electronic ignition. I have yet to use the generator in an emergency, but I tested it out and it completely powered my 2,400 sq. ft. house (furnace, well pump, appliances, lights, etc...). Naturally, you have ease into turning on all fuses to balance out the starting watts. Once the furnace and well pump were up and running, the unit powered the rest of the house without issue. The amount of starting and running watts is perfect for our size home. Great, reputable brand and less expensive than some of those major brands.

This generator is surprisingly quiet for it's size. It was easy enough to setup and get started. I ran it for over an hour after receiving it so probably not a full test but there were no issues. My only complaint would be with the angle of the oil reservoir cap/dipstick but in the scheme of things, it's only minor. This combined with our transfer switch should bring us through any power outages.

The units were shipped to my house where they arrived in excellent condition. They were easy to assemble and both units cranked immediately after adding gas. I am happy that I bought them from Home Depot and a added bonus is that they were cheaper there than at the other Box store even with my military discount.

A bit of confusion to hook up starter leads but it was running within twenty minutes of opening the box. RPM does not govern down so this adds to the noise level. Weight is considerable but the dolly frame makes it easy. Power has yet to be maxed out but I don't have any doubts. The electric start is especially nice!

I will prevail, however. I'm especially delighted to find out how easy it will be to power my whole house.. My wife and I are both on breathing machines so we won't have to worry about that. When I do get it set up and use it, I'll get back to you-- but no regrets..

Haven't had a storm where I had to use it yet, but all the test runs so far have been satisfying. Got it put together and it started so easy I was quite pleased. I am 80 Yrs old, and living far in the country, I just don't have the strength to be pulling on the cord of my older generated. This is a godsend to me. .
