  9 Questions
Q: Can the air cooled unit operate in warm weather conditions and not overheat. We just had a 122 degree day and if the electricity had failed, would this generator be able to handle the load in the heat?
by Gene H. from California on June 27, 2016

A: Thank you for contacting us.

Generac Air-Cooled Standby Generators are tested in accordance to UL 2200 standards with an operating temperature of -20 ºF (-29 ºC) to 122 ºF for normal operating range

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Should I pour a concrete base to place this unit on or can you place on a level dirt pad?
by Jim from Iowa on September 03, 2015

A: Thank you for contacting Electric Generators Direct.

I would advise pouring a concrete base. Or I would advise looking into a GenPad.

Q: Can aluminum wire be used to feed the breaker on a Generac generator?
by Glenn from New Jersey on December 11, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

When wiring the generator it must be in accordance with local jurisdiction and codes. If ALUMINUM conductors are used, apply corrosion inhibitor to conductors.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What is the clearance needed on all four sides of the unit for proper operation?

by Mark C. from Connecticut on July 24, 2014

A: Page 11 of the Installation Guide shows proper installation distances according to NFPA and manufacturers recommendations. The guide is available on our site under the specs tab in the download documentation section......

Q: What does AC shedding mean?

Q: If I'm not around when my home standby generator is running, what type of protections systems do the Generac units have?
by Josh from New Jersey on November 13, 2013

A: The generator may have to run for long periods of time with no operator present to
monitor the engine/generator conditions. Therefore, the generator is equipped with a number of systems to automatically shut down the unit to protect it against potentially damaging conditions. Some of these systems are as follows:

• Low Oil Pressure Sensor
• High Temperature Sensor
• Overcrank Sensor
• Overspeed Sensor
• RPM Sensor
• Under-frequency Sensor
• Undervoltage Sensor
• Overvoltage Sensor
• Internal Failure Sensor
• Low Battery Voltage Alarm

The control panel contains a display which alerts the operator when a fault condition occurs. The above list is not all inclusive. For more information about alarms and control panel operation, see Section 3 (Operation) in the owner's manual.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What type of oil should I use in my Generac home standby generator?
by Jim from Illinois on November 11, 2013

A: The maintenance section in the Generac's home standby owner's manual lists that the oil type is based on temperature ranges specific in your area.....

SAE-30 above 32º F (0º C)
10W-30 between 40º and -10º F (4º and -23º C)
Synthetic 5W-30 for all temperature ranges

All new models come with SAE-30 oil in them and have been test run at the factory for 25 hours and no break-in is required. The first oil change would be at 2 years or 200 hours, whichever comes first.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I'm not sure if this falls into the repair area but, I'm concerned about the sound this generator produces. Is there a way to lower that? Is there sound proofing approved for use for the interior walls of this type of home standby? My neighbors bedroom window will be 20ft from where I plan to install the generator. I would prefer doing something inside the generator as apposed to some type of fencing or other external methods.

by Mark H. from New Jersey on October 23, 2013

A: The manufacturers make every effort to reduce the sound of their generators as best they can keeping within NFPA and UL requirements. There are currently no options or parts available to install inside home standby systems to reduce their db(A) levels.

Your only option is location or sound barriers installed around the unit while keeping within NFPA and manufacturers distance requirements for proper fire protection, air intake and exhaust output.

We recommend consulting with your local inspector or AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) as to the specific local code requirements.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Is the Smart Switch the actual Automatic Transfer Switch? Or are they different? The specs says that there is an automatic transfer switch included.

by Joseph P. from New York on October 21, 2013

A: The "smart switch" is the automatic transfer switch. The ATS has an internal load manager that will load shed up to 2 AC units preventing the overload of the generator at start-up.

The Best Standby Generator For Whole House With 200 Amp Ats
I bought this generator in late October 2016 while it was on sale. I haven't lost the power so far. Thus. I cannot say much about its quality and performance. However it has been testing itself every other week as scheduled. I hope it works when I need it.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, Price
Cons: Heavy

Factory Gas Leaks
I have purchased this item before. The factory gas fittings had no dope or sealing compounding them, had to remove internal gas fittings and install new compound. Two hours
Pros: Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality
Mike, the Generator Expert
Product Expert
Very sorry to hear about your issues regarding the factory gas fitting. We rarely see issues like this with their standby units. We'll be letting our rep @ Generac know about the QC issue.

I Love This Generator
I bought this Generator 2 years ago and installed by the dealer. I've had 4 power outage since new and the generator ran the house with no problems up to 14 hours of continuous running. I find it quiet and smooth running. I feel so much safer now knowing that my generator will allow me to live through a black out rather than be running around with extension cords and gasoline cans. Best investment ever and the dealer also installed block and battery heaters as I live in Canada up from NY state.... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

The Locked Generator Without Keys!
Great generator. Needed it the day installation was completed. Worked as it should. One problem though. Generac shipped the keys locked inside the generator which was locked. This caused me several hours of problems like trying to get Generac to act on it and driving 35 miles both ways to get keys from a dealer. For all my trouble , Generac promised me a maintenance kit which they never sent. In the end, it works great. Hope I don't have to count on the Generac people again.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Packaging

Love It
Bought it during a 10% off period. Love the aluminum enclosure and the peace of mind having this generator provides! Haven't had to use it yet, but know it'll be there when we do!

Just installed it, and it dies when I try to turn on my 3 ton A/C. I knew this would be the case. In the spring, I plan on installing a SureStart and I'm confident this will allow me to run the A/C as well.
Pros: Durable, Quiet, Price, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

"Had oil leak on crank bolt after being installed for 3 weeks. Called Generac and they gave me information on service company in my area. Service tech was out the next day and had it fixed in a few hours. I was surprised how nice Generac and service tech was to me and the amount of time to get it repaired. Awesome job!!"
