Questions & Answers


Can this run on natural gas

Asked by Jsc February 22, 2021

Not as it comes from the factory. There are kits to change the carburetor to a carburetor that will use Gasoline, Propane and Natural gas, and there are natural gas regulator kits that you add to the carburetor. For reference see the link at the bottom. There are three informative videos in the link. As with all such modifications, expect to encounter issues, which means you will have to be mechanically inclined and have the necessary tools Although running on natural gas will not be harmful to the engine as opposed to running on propane, this may render your warranty as void. Also I believe that Natural Gas may contain about a 10 percent reduction in deliverable BTUs as opposed to propane, which will reduce the horsepower output of the engine, which may drop the sustained Wattage of the 12,000/9,500 WGen to around 8,600 watts, but on the other hand, the engine may run smoother, which will deliver less harmonic distortion(smoother steady frequency) of the electrical current. So see the link or google for "converting portable generators to run on natural gas".

is this a refurbished unit?

Asked by ron February 20, 2021

No. Brand new out of the box. Power went out from the cold snap that hit the South and it would not start.

Can I run this unit off of natural gas?

Asked by WB February 18, 2021

No. LP Gas or Gasoline only.

can you change back and forth between gas and propane or do you have to drain carburetor first

Asked by dick February 13, 2021

I can't answer the question. I suggest Dick contact Westinghouse Outdoor Power Equipment, L.L.C., by emailing or calling 1-855-944-3571 with the question.

Asked by Russiet January 18, 2021

Sorry, I'm right. There is a 10A fuse shown on the schematic on the positive (red) side of the battery and starter motor. I ended up contacting a service center, and they located it for me as an in-line fuse in a bundle of wires in the starter motor side of the generator. I had the bad luck of shorting 12V against the frame of the generator. It. Blew the fuse. I found it and its OK now.

I hooked this up in my house and it's awesome. I would recommend this to anyone.
by Scotty56
Awesome features!!
I bought this a few weeks ago to power several circuits in my house when the power is out. It’s easy to move around once the wheels are installed and isn’t overly loud when running. Very happy with the purchase so far!!
by Pianoman83
Hoping it performs as well as it claims.
Not sure why any company would want to encourage a person who just purchased an item to leave a review in exchange for a freebie, but here I am. I have just received this generator. I purchased it because of the features, and the claims of reliability. I cannot give an accurate rating because I have not used the product other than setting it up, and starting it to confirm it would actually start. In the coming weeks, I will be able to get a better idea of how this thing will operate. I hope it performs as expected. Last but not least, the middle of the road rating is a neutral rating. I cannot say whether I would recommend or not.
by Booatx
Generator worth the money and peace of mind.
This will be a lengthy review and I am in now way being compensated or have any affiliation with Westinghouse. Start with delivery and unboxing: they delivered as promised using XPO, who I had never heard of prior. They were very personable and took good care of the generator prior to and during delivery. They placed it exactly where I wanted in my garage. A+ on delivery. Next assembly and set up: I followed the manual exactly. If you read carefully and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS” you will see the entire quart of included SAE 10-30 oil needs to be added to the generator and they even include a funnel which I did think “what a nice touch”. Everything went smoothly and there were a couple things I noticed. 1. There is a cut off valve on the fuel line for the gas. I would recommend never getting a generator without one because when you are done using your generator you should cut off the fuel and then let it run until it uses all the fuel in the carb so it does not crystallize prior to you using it again. 2. It was so easy to switch between gas and propane, also well explained in the manual. 3. Battery was already charged but they included a battery charger with this model that plugs into a normal 110 outlet and then plugs into the faceplate on the generator to top off the battery. In the owners manuals it states not to leave it plugged into this charger as it is not a trickle charger and may overcharge the battery if it is left charging more than 8 hours. ANOTHER GREAT UNEXPECTED ADDITION. 4 The pairing of the key fob for the auto start was a little weird but, again, if you follow the directions exactly even though it seems weird it worked the first time. 5. It included the wheel and handle kit unlike a lot of other generators I previously priced and researched. Nice size and sturdy wheels as well. Starting: 1. I used propane and I used the auto start. The first time it did not start on the first or second attempt but fired right up on the third and I think that is normal because the fuel had to make it to the motor. 2. Although it did not start on the first crank it had an auto feature that it automatically tries 3 cranks before failing and turning the start/stop indicator to red indicating a start failure. I only pushed the button once. Great feature!!! 3. I love the counter that shows usage to help you determine when to service. Things it came with I was unaware of: 1 a small tool kit 2. Quart of 4 cycle motor oil 3. A fully charged battery 4. A 6.6 gallon main fuel tank for gas which should give you around 12-14 hours of run time. The only negative thing and I hate to mention it because I feel like I am wanting to eat my cake and have it as well. The generator is noisy! It is a 12,500 watt generator and is going to be loud, but be prepared to use some longer cabling and extension cords to get it away from you. We are using this generator to power our home during hurricane and cold weather power losses here in TX. VERY HAPPY WITH THE PIRCHASE!!! It is definitely big enough to run the whole home heater, all three refrigerators, and one freezer as well as all lights and entertainment as well. Advice: if you are using it to power your home speak to your electrician before buying a interlock kit as different breaker boxes use different kits. Great job Westinghouse
by Jamey
Awesome Generator!
We are so satisfied with this generator. It runs great and was a really easy set up! Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a generator at a great price!
Initial impression is Excellent!
We just got the unit checking out all features. The unit started up easily on propane. It even did an automatic retry when the gas hadn’t made it to the carb yet. The remote is very cool and the unit ramped up under load as it should. There were more extras than expected with the outlet breaker and trickle charger for the battery.

Everything you could need I'm a generator of this class. Called customer service before purchase to see if they answered, good response time. Seems quality built product with many features not found on others and at better price! Tons of great reviews online and easy set up! Heavy but to be expected. Loud but every one is in the weight class. Couldn't be happier with my choice!
