Answer

their are many reasonns why you are having difficulty starting you generator, first check the battery, second check the spark plug and thirdly what type of fuel are you using. their are 3 entries for fuel entry , NG , propane, and Gasoline. If you are not tied into the proper port yes you will have a problem starting, check the owners manuel for proper fuel entry.

it wise to have a seperate line for the generator from your propane sorrce because the generator has a different volume demand then ths grill and home heating line and would be easier to trace any problem if needed

Unreliable, Complete Failure
I managed to go through 4 of these units in 10 months. In each case, there were catastrophic motor and carburetion failures. Twice, the motor completely seized. Powerland was excellent in providing replacements, but a generator like this should last hundreds, if not thousands of hours. Complete junk. Buy a reliable brand like Honda.

Just received this generator. It started up on gas on 2nd pull. However I was having problem getting my central air blower to start up. I checked everything and it turns out the problem was the generator was outputting 64 Hz instead of 60 Hz. After researching I was able to adjust the output to 60 Hz by attaching a Kill A Watt Meter to the generator to monitor the frequency and adjust the RPM screw (located at the big red arrow on the attached picture). (EDIT: I compared the Kill A Watt frequency reading to the built in frequency meter on the generator and the numbers are almost the same. So you don't have to buy a Kill A Watt and just use the built in frequency meter to adjust the frequency). After I set it to 60 Hz all my appliances included blower started fine. I have a variable speed central A/C (RLA 16 amps, LRA 14 amps) so it does not need a huge starting amp. I was able to power my central A/C, fridge, freezer, and lights in my house. I also got natural gas to work. As other said sometimes you have to decreased the natural gas going into the generator to get it running smoothly. However I found that after I get it running smoothly on lower natural gas flow I can gradually increase the natural gas level back to full and the generator still runs smoothly. I run a 40 feet 3/4 inch extension hose from the gas meter to the generator which transmits 171,000 BTU and the generator needs 160,000 BTU. If your extension hose is shorter then you may have to permanently limit the gas flow to the generator to get it running smoothly. Also keep in mind natural gas vs gasoline decreases the wattage generated by 15-20%

Great Portable Generator / Very pleased with purchase
Fast shipping. Assembly fairly simple and pretty straight forward, if you have common sense you will have no problem. Instructions were adequate. Started right up on electric start and pull start. Have not put it through extreme test yet but all runs good. Good quality and strong frame, seems to built very good. ****would have given 5 stars but the handles used to move it around could be designed stronger at the point where they pivot. Also I believe I may look into changing out the wheels if I can find larger wheels to fit. Tractor Supply always has a good selection of these types of wheels. Would make it easier to move around on ruff ground. If you won't be moving it much or moving it around on concrete floor then you should have no problem.**** Overall very pleased with this purchase.

No more looking for gasoline
Easy setup. Installed on rubber pads on concrete slab. Will be permanent installation so wheel were not needed. Came with plugs for each type outlet. I went with a premade 50 amp cable. System installed with transfer switch wired to house. Runs everything in house but electric water heater and AC at same time, loads generator down too much. To help with AC initial start causing surge added hard start kit. Runs on natural gas that was in house already. Once started have to slowly close gas valve ( in line to generator ) to get it idling properly then increase just til it slightly misses so unit runs better under a load. Have had to run generator 2 times now since installed, averaging about 4 hours each time. Power lost to a downed tree and than for scheduled maintenance ( which now one was made aware of ). Hopefully this generator will last 15 years like the last 8750 watt bought at Home Depot too.

Works great.
The generator was easy to assembly. I hooked it up to the house and tested it running all major appliances (ac, refrig, stove, tvs, and lights). The only thing I didn't care for is how noisy when there is no load on it is although it is in my garage so I can deal with it. If you use the auto switch it helps with the noise.

This Generator will suit our needs very well.
We have four Parrots. Two Blue and Gold Macaws and two smaller Quakers. After a winter power outage, our bids got too cold. Out of fear for their health, we decided to get a portable generator. After some research and surviving Hugo on the coast of SC, I wanted a unit that could be powered by propane as it can be stored for long periods. Gasoline can not. In a large power outage, gasoline may not be available. This unit will nearly run out entire house. Use a good quality pipe dope to seal up the large reducer and cap if you are only going to power the unit with Gasoline or Propane. Pipe tape will leak. I had the unit assembled and running in about an hour. I used the choke and started it off Propane. It started after turning over about 4 times. I had a small issue during assembly and contacted Powerland by E-mail on a Sunday afternoon. I received a phone call from them on that Monday. We discussed the problem and a replacement part was shipped out. Ten minutes to replace the part and the unit is now 100%. Several plugs are included with the unit as well as a 12v plug suitable for charging batteries. We feel better now knowing that our birds will be kept warm in a winter power outage and our food will be kept safe in the event of a summer power outage. An added benefit, our local propane provider told me he would give me my replacement propane in the event of a major outage If I brought the Generator with me to power his equipment and get my tanks refilled and let him refill a few others for customers.

Great Product, Accessories and Manual not dso Great
The generator works great. The manual did not describe the wheel installation well. The attachment of the ground cable was not clear. The 30 amp 240 VAC plug was inferior, as the one terminal screw stripped out with very little torque applied.

I have this generatorand it has worked greatly with the electronic start. Ihad one problem with the battery, but the company replaced it and shipped a new one at no charge, isn't that great. I am using natural gas so no gasoline and no problem at all except when it is very cold, but I placed a small oil filled heater in the shed that houses the generator because natural gas condense in the sever cold. I am very pleased with this product and you will be too.

Factory battery was junk, one phone call and a new one was on its way, set up was easy , feeds whole house, gas heat, gas 50gal hot water , gas cooking, .30" snow and ice storm knocked out power from 6:30am thanksgiving day (Thursday ) until almost midnight Saturday. Lights, heat, cooking , 65" HD tv everything was on like regular power was back . Never skipped a beat for thanksgiving dinner. Even provided hot showers for next door neighbor.averaged 8 to 9 hours run time on a full tank of gasoline. Was very surprised at full load how well it did on gas consumption. Am going to hook it up to my 500 gallon in ground propane tank this summer. No more filling gas tank before bed and jumping out of bed in the morning to refill before it runs dry. All in all very pleased with the product. Thus far it has run 3 or 4 times for more then 24 hours straight providing light, heat, cooking and keeping the food in the refrigerator and freezer from spoiling. We have a food delivery service so at times there is more then $2000.00 worth of food in the freezer. The generator was well worth the investment. I built a small wood enclosure to store and run it in ,next to the garage . Weather proof and some what sound proof, easy access to the drive way for gas refill and close enough to plumb the 500gal propane tank to. Using an exsisting 50amp electric dryer plug to back feed it to the main panel. Turn the main shut off switch at the meter off preventing back feeding to the street side . Then select which circuits in the main panel are not needed to run off the generator . Simple and easy to run the entire house in a power outage . 10,500 watt surge 8500 continuous run , runs my entire house. Just make sure you start and run the generator under load once a month to keep it in stand-by mode.other wise the gen looses it charge across the exciter . The gas motor starts and runs but no ecletricty comes out of the generator Hopes this helps

I was able to easily get the generator to run on gas but as many ithers found out it is tricky with ng. I bought it because I have a ng line and don’t want to stockpile gasoline. I have never gotten it to run on ng and I have neve4 been alebto get 8n touch with customer service on the phone or email. You buy this thing, you’re on your own.
