It is fairly quiet, almost as quiet as a Honda I'd say. What may actually annoy your neighbors is the fact that this generator burns oil badly and you can smell it any time its running. The manufacturer says this is normal during the 5 hour break in, but mine still smoked well after that 5 hour mark and even after an oil change it had about 10 hours on it. Also, it seemed to lose some capacity after the first 6 hours to the point it would not handle as much load after that. If you research you'll find burning oil is a common complaint with this generator.

Will this power a full size household refrigerator

Asked by Mark January 31, 2021

Answers

The starting surge of a refrigerator can be quite high. I have an 18 cu ft whirlpool that uses about 100 watts. However, my 900/700 watt propane inverter would not start the fridge, it went into overload. I thought it may have been because the defrost cycle was on, and the defrost heater was drawing the extra power. However, after power was restored, I used a KW meter, and found the fridge was only using 103 watts. Even though the generator was rated for 900 watts of surge, the maximum output of the inverter was 675 watts when it went into overload So there may not be a straightforward answer to your question.

Do I need to ground this or not, or does it depend on what I plug in? According to the manual, t...

Use a GFI device and you will have no issues. This will add protection prior to reaching the generator unit. You can purchase a cord adapter with a resettable GFI built into the cord.

Can I sit this directly on grass or should I put wood or bricks underneath? Thanks!

I would buy this product again
This is a great generator. It started on the first pull out of the box and every time since. It is a really quiet generator and works great for refrigerators and lights. It does not surge. I also use it to charge phones.

Great generator, easy to start, maintain and does what it says it supposed to do. Besides it’s performance I like the size of it, quite practical to fit in any small location of my van, yet powerful enough to produce 2500 watt of power. Thanks to Champion. Highly recommend for the price and quality. I have it for 6 months no complains. What I like about this generator is it’s easiness to start and at low power consumption it runs very quietly. It meets my everyday usage, thanks to the manufacturer.

Absolutely Perfect!!!
My wife and I bought a 2018 Winnebago 2455BHS Travel Trailer...with an optional outdoor kitchen. The kitchen part was fine...but for us...the little electric refrigerator was a waste of space. Remove the refrigerator, buy a Champion 2500W Inverter Generator to fill the new space, and now we have something that will be useful for years to come. I conducted the initial "out of the box prep"...and started it right up. Oh My Goodness!!!!! that thing is QUIET!!!! I can't wait for the 2021 camping season to start...to take advantage of our new toy!!! I actually have three generators...a BIG one for the house...a medium one for portability...and the new "Absolutely Perfect Champion" to keep onboard the trailer to use whenever it is necessary. I am very impressed and feel the extra bit of wattage will allow it to do things some of the other brands won't.

My best generator yet
This my fifth generator of my own in my lifetime and my best and quietest generator yet. Powers tools and electronics great with little noise at all. My 24 inch work fan that I use in the summer is louder than the generator is. I bought this unit to replace a 5 year old 1500/1200 watt champion generator that is still running great but it has about 500 hours of use on it and it was time to upgrade. Out of my 5 generators this is my 3rd champion generator in a row and I just order my champion generator that will be used for home use. I can say this brand of generator is the best in my opinion.

Two Thumbs Up on this Generator
I purchased this generator as a smaller replacement for a Champion 2800W/3200W generator. I loved the old generator but it is overkill for powering my 17' Casita travel trailer. This little guy is a power house and at only 40lbs, it is the perfect size for my application. It powers all of my appliances including a Coleman Polar Cub A/C drawing 1K-1.2K watts, a induction burner, and an 1800W Breville Smart Oven. With the eco mode on it will rev up to meet power demand and then soften back into eco mode when the appliance is no longer in use. So far I am very pleased with this product and would highly recommend it for those looking to power a small RV.

Does not put out the wattage that they claim. This seems to just be the 2000 or 2200 watt generator relabeled as a 2500 watt. Even after the 5 hour break in period and then running another 5 hours and a 2nd oil change just for good measure, it still burns oil and smokes like crazy. Especially on start up and every time the rpms raise up from idle on Eco mode. It will not run my 11,000 btu rv air conditioner even with a supco spp6 hard start kit. (AC alone, nothing else running). Definitely going to return it and go with a Honda.

Response from Champion Power ExpertJul 30, 2020
We re very sorry to hear about this experience with our 2500-watt inverter. Please be aware that if you are at a high altitude, the unit will lose 3.5% of power for every 1000 feet above sea level. If the smoke is a blue/white color then oil is being burned. The oil may have been overfilled slightly or during shipping was turned on its side and residual oil settled in the muffler. If it is burning off, let the machine keep running and the smoke should dissipate. If it does not, get back to us right away. Also, you can open the oil cap while the generator is on a flat surface, if oil runs out, it is overfilled. Please email us at support@cpeauto.com, if you encounter any further issues. Thank you.

Great Purchase
I researched hundreds of portable inverter generators over the past few months looking for an ideal one to provide emergency backup power for several household items during the upcoming hurricane season. With four children in the house, all I was looking for was enough power to run the fridge, a lamp or two, and charge electronic equipment. I kept coming back to this generator and finally decided to purchase it. I followed the quick start set up page, gave it half a pull and it started beautifully. Quiet enough not to bother close proximity NYC neighbors and enough juice to power the items I was hoping for, Highly recommend this generator
