CAN YOU ALSO TURN THE GENERATOR OFF WITH THE REMOTE FOB ? THANKS, JAY

CAN YOU ALSO TURN THE GENERATOR OFF WITH THE REMOTE FOB ? THANKS, JAY
Asked by: JAY
Yes, it turns off just fine with the FOB. It bid not recommended for sensitive electronics to be on during this time because of the spikes during start up and shutdown.(I didn't have a problem though)

The unit is specified as 8000 watts, but, how can you get more than about 7000 watts out with the outlet/breaker combination?
Asked by: Jim
I didn't do the math but to put it into perspective, I ran electric dryer, 14 electric range top on high, over 500w in lights and about another 200 in misc electronics and it ran without a problem. It was definitely running harder but not close to bogging down. Not sure if you need a bigger test for general house stuff since those were all constant and not starting spikes.

8,000 Watt Commercial/Residential Electric Start/Remote Start Portable Generator is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8kpro westinghouse generator Build quality looked good. Battery came charged. Assembly was a breeze. Unit started up very easily with pull cord, electric start button, and remote start. Power is clean and ran my sensitive electronics without a problem even when I put it under a heavy load. I ran the electric dryer, a stove top, and misc lights inside the house and it didn't big down. I'm extremely happy with the performance. Can't wait for the next power outage. I hope the unit is durable and lasts forever.

Ordering was a breeze, and the generator was shipped quickly directly to my door. Be aware the tracking number Home Depot sends, may not be the tracking to your address. In my case the tracking number was to a third party carrier that did the actual delivery. The generator arrived on a large pallet, and was in perfect condition. The generator was very easy to assemble, and I had it running in less than an hour. Two days later we had a power outage, so I had a chance to hook it up to my transfer switch and put it to the test. This generator is able to run my entire house (except for the central air) without any issues. It is also a good bit quieter than my previous unit. I did have on issue with the unit. The Data Center failed after about 3 hours of run time. I called Westinghouse, and got a live person on the first transfer to customer service. I was told they were having issues with the Data Center, and a few units got out with the defective unit. He told me it was a very simple swap out I could do myself, or I could take it to a repair center. I chose the swap out, and the part shipped out the same day. Received several e-mails to confirm our conversation and shipment. I was very pleased with this level of customer service, very rare these days! In spite of this small issue, I highly recommend this unit!

There was an issue with the lifting bracket that did NOT fit between the two pipes on top because they are spaced too closely together. 2. There was no marked location on the top for the lifting bracket location for the center of gravity. 3. The lifting bracket did not have a hole to put a bolt through to attach it the top of the generator. 4. The remote turns the generator off immediately when I push the Stop button. (When the remote is used to turn off the generator the load is supposed to be disconnected first.) 5. When the generator starts, the meter is supposed to show the frequency, instead it shows the voltage. 6. The plastic tube included to add oil to the engine was severely kinked so it could not be used to add engine oil which made it very difficult to put in and I spilled some. Because of the engine filler location, which is shown by the small yellow thing in the center lower part of the photo, it is difficult to put oil in the engine. If a person has a hand pump on a gallon jug of oil, then it would be easy to add oil. 7. The remote dangling and swinging back and forth chaffed what appears to be the air cleaner cover and at least one of the pipes on the top appeared to be somewhat chaffed by the box since the plastic bag fell down and did not completely cover the generator. I called the Warranty or Tech Support number and left a message and I never received a call-back. After reporting the above problems, they didn't really seem to acknowledge that there were issues. I finally did get my money back though but I wasted a fair amount of my time and some money trying to get a good generator. The output is described as being low in harmonics, so that is good for sensitive electronic items. The generator has some really nice features---the company needs to address some issues though. If they were all addressed, then I think it would be a very good generator.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer beware...... Took a chance and ordered this generator even though its only review was bad. I convinced myself that this bad review may have been an isolated case as the smaller Westinghouse 7500 generator had an excellent reputation and Home Depot has a 30 day return policy--so I took a chance. The generator arrived without a problem. It was fairly easy to assemble despite some minor description errors in the manual. The big problem was that the manual (recoil) start function would not work and it took a least 3 of the 5 seconds for the electric start to work. The product has an automatic choke so there are no adjustments that the owner can make. I called Westpro for technical support and they had no experts available at the call center so I was given several numbers for approved technicians in the field. Unfortunately, only 3 of the 6 numbers were correct. Even worse, two of the contacted technicians no longer did business with Westpro. I asked why and they said Westpro was slow in delivering parts and paying for warranty work. So before you buy this product at least go to the Westpro website and checkout the dealers and repair technicians in your area. Home Depot was outstanding and honored the return policy without any hassles. This generator has some excellent features but the quality control needs to be improved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective 8KPRO Bought the other day through Home Depot. This is supposed to be new to the Westpro Power line of Contractor Series generators. Unpacked, put together, added oil and gas, unit shook shuddered and vibrated like it was going to come apart. Had tape marks all over it, scratches, scuffs, etc., looked to me like a demo or refurbished product (nice way kick off a new product line eh?). Then shut off. Would not stay on more than a minute. Finally able to get through to somebody at Westpro Power, rather than the 855 number they list, which will only get you somebody with a foreign accent tell you where your nearest service provider is located, sent Westpro a video of the unit malfunctioning, they confirmed something wrong. They said drain it, dissemble, pack up, put on pallet, they would send a new one and pick up old one. Don't have time for this, so called Home Depot, very cordial and friendly, as opposed to Westpro Power, who are defensive, unfriendly, and insulting; Home Depot said just bring it back as is for a full refund. Which I will do. Then I will buy another make of generator, but certainly never again a Westinghouse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Westinghouse 10KPRO I bought the 10KPRO a few weeks ago, but I see it's no longer available. It was delivered ok, but it's rather heavy. it comes on a pallet without the wheels installed, so you have to do that yourself. My wife and I struggled to install them. You need at least two men, and/or a jack to raise the end. Other than that, it works great! It did not come with a power cord. I'm guessing that's because there are so many variations people have. I have a built in switch on my home, but some do not, so I can see why you need to buy a power cord separate. Too bad this was discontinued. Maybe the 8KPRO works just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator at a Great Price! This is a great generator at a great price! Bought it as insurance against winter power outages -- no more worries about defrosted freezers and spoiled food. Also as we live out in the country and have a well, we're assured of having a working well pump. The remote start is a real benefit -- can't tell you how nice it is to be able to start the generator from inside the house! All around, very happy with this Westinghouse model!
