Warranty 7kw Home Powerpact
Purchase and installed 7Kw powerpact within 12 hours of break in the generator failed. First warranty call brushes broke, ran one hour failed again, second call AVR voltage regulator replaced, no good, third call replaced the rotor, stator, AVR, and brushes. Running so far :-). My concern was the lack of urgency to ship replacement parts overnight, some parts took 3 weeks to arrive. Generator was down for three months. They would not extend the warranty. Read the warranty.
Pros: Features, Price, Installation Manual Was Easy To Read
Cons: Unreliable, Slow Warrent Parts Shipments

Generac provided another dealer, he came out in 4 days and found the brush block was broken because it was not installed correctly. If... more
