Poor Generac customer service, October 28, 2013
This review is from: Generac 6244 20,000 Watt Air-Cooled Aluminum Enclosure Liquid Propane/Natural Gas Powered Standby Generator (CARB Compliant) with 200SE Transfer Switch (Lawn Patio)We are an older couple and we purchased this Generac in October of 2012. We live in a rural area and would be without heat and water during a power outage. We bought it for health and safety reasons and also for peace of mind. We had a problem with it during a power failure in December 2012. Technicians made four trips and numerous calls were made and an incident report was filed with Generac. Technician's calls to Generac got them no help nor did our incident report to Generac . After trying things that did not work, one of the men replaced a computer part and the problem was solved - EIGHT MONTHS LATER.
Generac was notified that the problem was solved in August of this year and the person handling our case said that our warranty had been extended for another year and that she would get us the name of a technician who would service our generator in a timely manner. She would send that to us in writing the next day. I have made 12 calls in the last two weeks. She doesn't.

This review is from: Generac 6244 20,000 Watt Air-Cooled Aluminum Enclosure Liquid Propane/Natural Gas Powered Standby Generator (CARB Compliant) with 200SE Transfer Switch (Lawn Patio)I purchased one of the last units from Prime. It was drop shipped to my front door with no issues. It's important to find an electrical contractor who knows what he is doing. My installation went OK I guess. I had to have an additional gas line ran to my house because the required gas flow rate is specified when the generator is at full load - You need to call the gas company and make sure you can get the required flow rate before you purchase. I purchase this generator because I have a dug out basement - which means sump pumps - which means you'll probably need electricity during a storm...
The unit runs every Monday morning at 9:00 am. I get emails letting me know when the status changes because I purchased the Wireless Remote Monitoring Mobile Link as an accessory.
Tip: Since the installation itself is an significant cost, I went ahead and had an additional cut-off switch installed - I can now plug my gasoline generator in if all else fails. Finished.
Great unit, Please Use Caution!!!, January 2, 2014
I have only had it for a few months and was finished with the install 3 weeks ago buy my local electrician. It had a control panel problem from the factory. This is the 6244 with the new evolution panel.
I would like to Caution anyone looking into purchasing this unit from and dealing with Generac. The issue is if your more then 50 miles one way from a Generac repair service, be prepared to pay for the travel expenses and hourly rate for the service tech to come repair your unit under warranty. I live in the lower 48 USA but in an area where the nearest Generac.
