Questions & Answers


Will this run my 3.5 ton 14 seer A/C? Have read several different things so not sure.

Asked by Cody June 18, 2021

Hi Cody, during our research, we found that a 3.5 ton 14 seer AC unit will use around 8,000 running watts and 12,000 peak watts. Please know that if you plan to use the WGen9500, the AC unit will be the only thing you will be able to power.

Asked by Jen May 29, 2021

I imagine it will depend on how the transfer switch is wired. If you have real concerns, it would be worth having an electrician inspect your solar setup and the transfer switch.

Does it come with a battery and does it run off natural gas and or petroleum based fuels.

Asked by Sandra May 28, 2021

Battery included . Gas operated

Can it be out in the rain if i am camping

Asked by April May 9, 2021

I have never had to use mine in the rain but if I were to I think I would keep a piece of plywood ,small tarp etc. over it. Maybe call manufacture to be on safe side.

Awesome Generator
I bought this a week ago to prepare for hurricane season just Incase because you never know living here in Florida.This generator will run my whole house! It has all the wattage I need and features I need.The price was good and I do not regret purchasing this generator at all!
by RonnyB
A lot of features
Little confusing with serial number having a sticker placed over plate with printed white sticker with serial number. Not 100% sure I have the right serial number listed. The owners manual was OK but a little different depending on which particular model you were assembling. I found the You-Tube Video of someone assembling this exact model and it addressed all my questions. Love this model so far.
by Delta Duke
Easy to start low noise
I have delivered my new generator today I am very happy, I set it up wheels, gas, add oil to the motor, check for voltage on the battery for the electric start connect the battery and I give a try, it started to the first try, my first impression about this generator was the low noise level and all the amazing features it has, as an electrician I had to many ideas, it's enough to power up my house all the appliance. including my ac unit, I'm happy with this amazing equipment and another thing That I didn't expect was the service manual the electric diagrams, and a list of the part number comes on this manual normally the part numbers never come with the manual and when you need a part you has to search all over the places to find the right part.
Smart Generator! Runs quietly! Key Fob Remote!
Smart generator! Runs quietly! Key Fob starting! All the power we'll need!

Best price for the KWHs
I like this generator because it comes with everything to run the generator, including wheels and spark plug wrenches, and even funnels. I first considered buying a cheaper one at a cheap tool shop, but even after the other generator's discount this Westing House one seemed cost-effectively better because I would have to buy a wheel kit and battery separately if I had bought the cheaper one. That is, it wasn't actually cheaper. Plus, the WGEN9500 comes with several wonderful features, including the remote starting functionality. One thing, the remote starter key fob was tied to the pull cord (for manual starting) when it was delivered. I couldn't find it at first because I thought I would find it in the manual packet or the accessary box. When you assemble the wheels and feet, see the attached pictures. It would be easier if you open the box from the bottom and attach one wheel and the 2 feet first. Then, stick in some pieces of lumber under the generator. This will help support the generator while you attach the other wheel without leaving scratches on the frame.
