I did a lot of research for a home generator that 240v 30Amp supply with a built in voltage regulator. The price can't be beat for this Westinghouse generator. the plan is to install a transfer switch to keep the lights and refrigerator, freezer and A/C in the event of a power outage.

Can't say much so far. Put the generator together, got it ready and it started nicely. Seems to be reasonably quiet.

My new generator arrived within 3 days of ordering. I have used it for only about 2.5 hours at a remote job site for construction of a cabin, but it is a well-built machine and is easy to use. I was frankly and pleasantly surprised as to how quiet it was considering its wattage output. I had a smaller Generac iX2000 portable generator that died an early death (& too expensive to repair), but my new Westinghouse machine isn't much louder. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who needs a quality generator.

This generator is replacing a John Deere manual start 6200 running watt generator which I wouldn't recommend.
The positive reviews here and on Amazon sold me on this Westinghouse WH7500E electric start generator and the 3 year warranty and the 5 star customer service by the seller, AP Electric! It arrived in four days right to my garage. Was easy to setup by me and it started right up after installing wheels, handles, oil provided and removing the jumper wire in the alternator per instructions from westpro.com website so it would be grounded properly when plugged into my transfer switch installed by my electrician in our basement with a 220 box in the garage to plug my 220volt cable that feeds the 220 box from the generator.
Need a generator, look no further, buy this unit from no one but AP Electric and you will be happy you did!
Problem with carburetor with brand new machineProduct Review Rating: 3/5
Posted by Mike on Jun 17, 2016
Received generator with no physical damage . Very easy to assemble, oil and gassed up and started on the first attempt. Ran without any problems for about 30 minutes. Then gasoline began dripping out of the bottom of the air filter assembly. Shut off generator, removed air filter cover and had gasoline pouring out of the air filter. Had to clamp the gas line and take to a dealer about 1 hour away. Based upon the assembly the problem could only be the carburetor. Had generator serviced and that was exactly the problem. Malfunctioning carburetor. Had a new carburetor installed and now runs without any problems. Mechanic has serviced 8 machines in the past 3 years and mentioned this was the problem with all of them. He believes it is a very good generator but the company needs to work on the design of the carburetor. Warranty was completely covered for fixing the carburetor. Westinghouse stood by the product. I will see if there are any other problems that occur in the near future.
What a deal.Product Review Rating: 5/5

The generator is great although the height stated in the specs should be noted without the wheels attached. It is so easy starting it is amazing even without the electric starter. Love it.

This has been a generator that's been on my need to get list for some time and AP Electric with their great price made it a no brainer. The delivery was fast and coordinated, just make sure a truck can get into your street. Having a hand truck makes it easy to place where you need until assembled. Assembly was easy. Directions were easy to follow though they need to be more descriptive on grounding (if needed). Unless one is familiar with electric work referring to code will throw off average user. In any case, grounding is an issue if you plan to connect to your house power panel. Push button start is great and has rip cord if battery gives out on you. Great product and I'm ready for hurricane season!

The Westinghouse unit was delivered very quickly by apelectric ... impressive. It was nicely packaged and easy to slap on the wheels and handles, and pour in the oil. Started right up. Within two weeks, a windstorm took our power out, and I used the generator for about 3 hours without incident. Looking forward to many happy hours of backup power.

Good value for the money. Only one minor issue. Would have been nice if access to the battery terminals was better. Got a little tricky getting to the posts to make the ground connection. Had to loosen the hold-down bracket first. Other than that, no complaints so far. Won't know for sure until I have a chance to load it up next time power goes out!

Bought this generator in June 2015.
Now have used over 40 hours, great machine.
Did have to put in new fuel gage and solenoid but no argument with warranty and just a fluke.
I will note I was concerned about fuel leaking when full but that's be use we overfilled it. Operator error
Can't go wrong with this honey.

Great generator so far. Have only tested it. Easy setup. Started easy. Runs great. Works great. A little louder than I hoped but not as loud as my old one. Another review mentioned a problem with the neg. battery cable. It needs to be a couple inches longer for easier install. No other problems. Would recommend.

I purchased this generator after multiple power outages here in remote Idaho. The reviews were excellent. i don't have a lot of time on this unit, but so far it looks excellent. It assembled easily, starts quick, runs smooth. Powers everything I could ask. It was priced very fairly!
The buying experience--shipping through AP electric was outstanding--highly recommended.
Works FineProduct Review Rating: 5/5
Posted by FRS on Jan 19, 2016
I am not flipped about people that just get something and then write a review about it. So here I am doing the same. I just received the Westinghouse 7500E generator and put one gallon of gas in it with 3000 Watt draw and it ran for 1 hour and 50 minutes. Couldn't hardly get the gas cap off, even with a pipe wrench but it finally worked. Ran fine and was not overly noisy for its size. Was delivered by Estes, I think. The driver wheeled it into my garage and it didn't take any time to put it together. The only thing hard was that the negative battery wire is so short it barely fit on the terminal and the end wire cover still isn't in the proper spot.
Just as advertisedProduct Review Rating: 5/5

From unboxing to running much less then an hour. I am sitting in my house about 30' away on the same side as the generator is running and I can barely hear it.

The generator was delivered and rolled into my garage in a couple of days! Setup and ran easily for two hrs to break it in. Installed a NG Conversion kit, no problem, (cut the frame a little) And the next day went through a 6hr outage without a hiccup. it powers my whole house, minus the dryer and hot tub. We have gas heat, range and HW. Loved sitting in a warm house here in Seattle watching DirecTV during our first outage. No problems with ordering from AP Electric at all.

Fast delivery from AP Electric. Easy assembly. Started up immediately. So easy to start. Runs all my devices at same time. Should have bought this Westinghouse generator first instead of Dura Star. Only negative is it's a little noisy.
Starting IssuesProduct Review Rating: 3/5
Posted by Steve on Nov 23, 2015
Overall, this generator set is a superb design. Right out of the box it was easy to do the minor assembly required and it started up immediately. I've been experimenting several times ensuring everything is OK and ready to meet my needs during a power outage. However, twice I have experienced no-start or rough running issues after running out of fuel. The WestPro rep told me it was most likely a piece of trash in the carb that settled there when the tank ran out of fuel. Made sense to me. So I did what he told me to do and that solved the problem. That is, until the next time it ran out of fuel. I had the same issue again, only worse this time. It wouldn't start at all. I'm attributing this problem to some kind of trash getting into the carb. I have not repeated the step to clear it out yet because the screws I have to remove are soft and easy to strip the heads. I'm waiting for the chance to remove the entire carb as the screws I have to remove are upside down and difficult to back out. I'm afraid I will strip them unless I can get adequate pressure to properly back them out. Of course, this will require more work. But I intend to get the carb cleaned out, drain the tank completely and flush it with more fuel so I know there won't be any trash in the tank. How did my original problem with trash occur? I don't know whether it was during the manufacturing process or from my gas can. Once I get this process completed and I KNOW there is no trash, I will repeat my test again. If the problem happens again, then I'm going to ask for the manufacturer to do a repair at their expense. I'll try to update this review once I complete the process. As for AP Electric and their selling and delivering the product, no issues at all.

This is my third 7500E generator . Let me explain why my third, The first one was delivered with a collapsed cowling I called the company and they had it pickled up with a new replacement at no
charge. The second one ran fine but when I needed it for a power outage it had no output to any outlet. I again called the company and they not only fixed it but rented me a generator at no cost to me for the power outage. This the third one runs fine and all is well. I can honestly say that Westinghouse truly stands behind the product they sell

I did a lot of research before purchasing a generator. I wanted one big enough to use with a transfer switch. I found this generator on another web site and it was highly rated. I almost bought it but decided to do a total web search based on price. I found AP Electric to have the best price along with a free extension cord or cover. Free shipping was also a bonus. I checked out the company reviews and felt confident ordering from them. I have yet to find this generator listed anywhere for the price I paid. The shipping was fast and they even let me drive over to pick it up rather than maybe wait all day to meet them at the street because I live back in the woods. The shipping company let me inspect it and then loaded it into my truck with a forklift. Assembly was easy. I hooked it up to my transfer switch and it started right up. I only let it run for about 15 minutes but so far it works fine. If we have another power outage I will put it to the test.

After 6 months of research I purchased the Westinghouse WE7500 portable gas generator based on countless positive reviews online.
It arrived in fine condition and within an hour it was up and running like a champ. Within 10 minutes voltage began to steadily decline at all three outlets and if I had connected it to my home transfer switch without checking first we would have lost our appliances.
I attempted to reach technical support through Westpro but they explained that I had to go through my nearest Westinghouse service center which is a lawn mower repair shop 25 miles away. When I called there for service the owner explained that they didn't carry or sell Westinghouse products but that they did handle warranty repairs and would take a look at it for me. Now I am out more time and transport costs and I have never even put the unit into service one time.
I like so many things about this unit and truly hope it will end up offering years of reliable service, I will rate it at that time.

I researched long and hard before purchasing this generator. I use the generator to power our food trailer this generator does not skip a beat powers everything I need the folks at AP Electric were also awesome one of the tires were damaged in shipping all I had to do was call and immediately one was put in the mail I would recommend this generator to anyone it does not surge does not miss a beat and it's relatively quiet. So far I have put 12 hours on the generator at three different times this generator cranks really well I have had no issues AP Electric has has the best price around I live in Florida and the generator was shipped on the 10th and it was sitting at the terminal on the 15th I had tracking numbers throughout the process. If you are looking for generator with this type of water to look no more that's all I can say.

Ordered this generator based upon these reviews and then one
Written on planet generator.
Received the unit in a timely fashion, was easy to set up per the instructions.
Did the initial test without a load as stated in the directions. I was concerned about the noise but was VERY pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was. Don't get me wrong there is still noise as you would expect but the level of noise even was acceptable to my wife.
I will be using this mostly with my fifth wheel and will report back as to our real time experience. But so far I'm thrilled with the generator and the service I received from AP Electric. True professionals.
