Questions & Answers

Q:would this power 2 refrigerator/freezers using 100ft 12 gauge extension cords to reach the unit in the backyard?
by|Nov 14, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Mike, A refrigerator usually takes about 1200 watts to start, but once it’s started, it only takes about 200 watts to run. So yes, it could start two refrigerators at the same time.

    Q:Tv and speakers for tailgating

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Rodd, The AC output for the EU3000iS is 120V 3000W max.(25A) 2800W rated (23.3A). The EU3000iS will be fine for this application since the average home speaker uses between 15 to 30 watts and (generally), TVs use between 50 to 200 watts (W) of electricity, depending on the model.

      Q:What type of generator extension cord does the EU300is use three prong?
      by|Oct 15, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Alvino, Yes, you can use a 3-pronged extension cord, but they do have limitations on what they can power. If you only have occasional need for backup power, and you only want to power the basics, using extension cords is a good option. It’s more important, however, that the extension cord be in good condition.

        Great machine
        This is our second Honda eu3000i , first one still in use over 5 years now in upstate NY . We needed one in Arizona bought one here . Very quiet, I have a dog house I use like the one in NY I use a powerful exhaust fan which pulls out the exhaust and pulls in fresh clean air over the machine to help cool it .

          Horrible...won't start, yes its got oil, gas,
          Its got oil, gas, a clean spark plug...yes i pulled it to check...fully charged battery... wtf...pull choke out...turn key...NOTHING ...cranks and cranks and doesn't fire up
            Awesome generator
            We've had our 3000ic running for 73 hrs straight now. Powering everything in our home that is 110v. 3 sump pumps, window AC, multiple lights, power to gas tankless water heater, fans, TV, fridge, alarm clocks etc. I've got it plugged into a receptacle that backfeeds a 220v 20amp breaker and our main breaker off for when our power is restored. Great unit.

              Best generator ever.
              Just fired up my 18 year old Honda 3000 EU is. Another storm related outage. It’s running a portable floor AC unit and my Fridge/freezer. Charging phones ect.. it just ran 10 hours and 22 minutes on a full tank of gas . It’s QUIET! Bought it during Hurricane Katrina. Recharged a well with it from a stream. Handled numerous ice storms. Worth every Penny. Only use premium fuel. Runs like a top.

                  Honda Quality - Perfect Start-up & Quiet
                  I live near the Texas Gulf Coast where storms and hurricanes come often with subsequent power outages ranging from hours to days, and got tired of losing fridge food and sleeping in the heat when power was cut. I did a lot of research on generators (all brands) and I kept coming back to the Honda brand. Although on the expensive side when compared, you get what you pay for, so I went for quality over cost. I’ve only owned my EU3000is for 1 day, but very happy with it right out of the box. I added oil, then fuel, turned on the fuel and ignition, 1 pull of the crank - it started, purrs like a cat! I then connected the battery (included with purchase) and it started immediately. I tested all electrical ports and all was good, so next test will be when/if power gets cut this storm season. In any case, I’ll be ready this time.

                    Home Generator
                    I have used it lightly to power refrigerator, lights and heater during utility outage. So quiet I can talk and be heard when standing next to it. Throttles up and down based on load, and noise level increases only slightly. If you appreciate high quality engineering you will not find a better engineered product. Love this machine, well done Honda engineering.

                      First class product
                      I researched generators for dozens of hours and just could not find anything to beat The Honda. Fit,finish, features and performance are second to none.My only issue is that this model has no hour meter.

                        Great generator!
                        Easy to setup. Started right up, smooth and quiet! Can't wait to use it on my next camping trip! I would prefer a remote start, which is not a built-in option, but there is a kit for that.

                          Very quiet, tons of power. Glad I went with this Honda.
