Just bought a Ryobi 6500 easy start. It doesn’t advertise that it’s powered by Honda so not sure exactly what company powers it. Either way I opened the box added the 10w-30 weight oil it came with, added 5 gallons of gas and have pulled on it more than 30 times and it hasn’t started yet. Any known problems on initial startup
Asked by: Whatstheproblem
Did you ensure the engine switch is "on"? It's hiding behind that placard on the side that talks about the auto-CO2 sensor. On mine, the red dial/switch points down, to ON.

Will this run a refrigerator??

Asked by: Goob
No Goob. It wouldn’t power our home refrigerators. We had to use our dorm frig for meds and lost tons of food. And yes. The frig was the only thing being run at the time.So, We were not able to use it for either home frig up or down stairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Honda engine is a plus. Lost power in Midwest storms that went through, and our usually unreliable power company serving Northern IL and Chicagoland (who shall remain nameless) has been living down to their reputation. After nearly 24 hours of dark and hot - it’s in the 90s - picked up this Ryobi RY906500s unit. Added the oil and gas, had a friend help me offload from my pickup (it’s HEAVY) and started up on the first attempt. Let the machine stabilize for a minute, then plugged in a freezer and fridge, and my neighbor’s fridge. This genset didn’t even notice. Can hear it load when one of the units cycles on, but it gets right back to business after a half-second grunt. Loud like all of them, but that’s any small engine at constant speed under load. All I care about is does it do the job of generating clean steady power. And it does. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

It is powered by a commercial Honda GX390 engine. When I bought it last year and set it up it started RIGHT AWAY and effortlessly. I converted mine to use natural gas (comes in from the street) and it hums like a baby without any stinky exhaust fumes. During a power outage – which we already had once – I can run the entire house (about 1,800 square feet, not all at the same time) except of course the central A/C. We have one room upstairs with a 10,000 BTU wall A/C and it runs that just fine, as well as our fridge. It has electric start, and it also starts well with the pull start system. I am very happy with this generator, and this Honda engine will last for many years to come.

I had not yet been able to install a transfer switch connection, so I went with extension cords. It comfortably ran 2 refrigerators, a couple lights, 2 fans, WiFi and a TV. It's a little loud. But otherwise great. Easy unboxing process, started right up, and ran for 6+ hours without needing to refill gas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice! Home Depot got the order processed and generator shipped much quicker than initially estimated; and I placed the order while 750,000 MI residents were without power. Likely they were selling a lot of generators at the time. When it arrived, I put oil in it, a little gas, set the choke, and it fired up on the first pull. I've only run it a couple times so far, but it has started on the first pull every time.
