Q: Hi Jim;

So I bought the 5947 kit, the batter warmer & electrical was no problem to install. I cannot figure out exactly where to stick the block heater pad, the generator has the 999cc engine. The pad seems to fit on the top center of the block but I am just not sure if that is exactly the right place to stick the thing. The kit did not come with a picture of where to put it and want to make sure it is in the right place the first time since I think the adhesive back is a one shot deal.

Can you please help?

Thanks
Henry

A: Henry,

Below is a link to the installation guide from Generac which has a picture at the bottom of the page and shows exactly where the block heater goes. Please make sure to follow the instructions exactly or you will have difficulty with it sticking.

Q: I have a Generac Guardian Series 5502 and need a cold weather kit. Since this is a discontinued model. What cold weather kit is compatible with my model?

Model 5635

Q: Hi Jim,
I live in Alaska and own a 5875 20KW Home standby Generac. I need to get a cold weather kit. I am looking at the Generac Cold Weather Kit for 14-20kW Home Standby Generators (992/999cc). First, is this the correct product for my generator and second, is it a "plug and play' install?

I understand I will need to change the oil to synthetic 5W30 so my guess is I'll need a maintenance kit as well. The generator has less than 3 hours on it.

Many thanks,

- Bill Thomson

by Bill Thomson from Alaska on January 21, 2011

A: That is the correct cold weather kit for the Generac Guardian 20kW model 5875 (or 5887) and it is a plug and play type unit, however, it is recommended by Generac to have a certified electrician install it due to the high voltage connection.

Peace Of Mind
Although this is still August and the cold weather won't be here for a few months, the Generac Cold Weather Kit is a must if you live in Iowa. It is surprisingly easy to install with the supplied directions.

In fact, the whole generator installation is simple, but I recommend you DIY'ers have a licensed electrician make the final connections, and read the instructions thoroughly.

During the testing, this Generac Guardian performed flawlessly, it ran my Geo-thermal system and... more

Cold Weather Kit Complete Waste Of Money
I love my Generac. But the cold weather kit has everything to be desired. I installed it, following Generac's instructions with sanding and alcohol, at the beginning of a most mild winter 09/2011. I checked my unit a few days ago and neither electrode was where they were placed. The adhesive is defective. The engine-block warmer fell off, and the battery warmer also was no longer stuck to the battery. The cold start kit was purchased with my generator purchase, and Generac informed me that the... more

Model #5875
The cold weather kit assists with keeping the oil warm for ease of starting and keeps the battery warm for the frigid temperatures. The cost is reflective of the technology for automatic temperature sensing in the material where a mechanical/digital activation thermostat is not required.

The generator top does not lock properly. When you use the key to lock the top, it does not catch. Secondly the cold weather kit does not appear to provide the essentials for the cost. If you have a strong... more

Generac 5947 Cold Weather Kit
I have had my Generac 6052 14Kw Generator for about 2 years now and it has been great. It has always performed well during power outages.

However I am very disappointed with the Cold Weather Kit 5947. It was installed last November. Winter is coming so I checked it a month ago and found that the heat pad was no good. Half of it was destroyed, I think it overheated. Called Generac they told me it was out of warranty, sorry, you have to buy another one. My response was, why? It is... more

My Experience With My Generator So Far
So far my generator is working fine. Every Saturday the test run starts and runs for approximately 10 minutes.

The electrical connection went well, along with the plumbing. I am not able to give any additional information because I have not been able to fully put the generator to the test since my electricity remains intact.

However, I am very pleased with the results and would recommend this unit to anyone who has has issues with the loss of electricity.

Generator Works Great - Problem W/ Battery Warmer
Delivery was prompt and the generator works great. The only problem is my battery warmer fried and can't get ANYONE to even respond (5 weeks and counting). I'm very afraid of service issues with Generac. Winter is almost here and now I had to purchase a different battery warmer to use until I can get this solved if ever. Also had issue with failed to start on an exercise once. But hasn't happened again.

Generator Purchase
I have had a portable gas generator for years since our vacation home is in a rural area. After a 4 day outage this summer and dealing with all the hassles and limitations of the portable, I decided it was time to install a permanent propane, smart-switch unit.

The Generators Direct site is easy to use and VERY informative to efficiently help determine type and size desired. The ordering process was hassle-free and subsequent 2 day delivery went without a hitch. The unit was installed... more

A Squirrel Gave His Life Today
A squirrel gave his life today and we were able to really test our new generator! It was wonderful - we were able to continue what we were doing without interruption. We had a TV, a computer and a washing machine going plus overhead fans (didn't need the AC, but am confidant it would have come on).

It works great, BUT our electrician says it should have a back panel for easier access. (He dropped a screw that took 'forever' to retrieve!).

It is a little loud - Everyone nearby now knows... more
