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.

Starting IssuesProduct Review Rating: 3/5

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.

The generator was delivered quickly and professionally to my driveway in perfect condition. After doing the required preparation to the unit, it fired right up and ran like a top. It was also the best price around and AP Generators kicked in a free 20' power cord for nothing. How can you beat that?

This generator looks and behaves like the top of the line for it's class. Certainly, the reviews all over the Internet would encourage that perception. I've made the natural gas conversion, added a tachometer and installed the transfer panel. All that's left is a real weather/power event this Winter. The purchase and delivery was smooth and predictable. I think at this point, we're good to go.

The WH7500E generator is solid, through and through. Initial prep for it's first run was easy and the event went off without a hitch. I've since converted the fuel source to natural gas, and the performance of the WH7500E has been outstanding. I added a tachometer to accurately tune the gas delivery. Though I may not need it, I've chosen to run with a quart of Mobil1 5-30 full synthetic oil. I use this oil in all of my vehicles, so I've got plenty standing by. The idles at about 3700 RPM. The oil is just a little insurance that may add some life to the system. I'm in the Pacific Northwest. We get more than our share of outages...every Winter. This will be the first time I'm secretly hoping for a limb to fall on a power line.
I am sure it will handle the power need in my house.Product Review Rating: 5/5

I had. Haven't had a chance to run it in an outage but sure it will take care of all
my needs. Hurricane country here in south Texas so I am prepared for the worst
and hoping for the best. Shipping took an extra day because Estes handed it off
to a local delivery but the delivery was smooth.

WH7500e, Had a minor problem when I got it. Called Westpro power systems to see what to do, they said to take it to there service center in Midland Michigan ( a city close to where I live) They picked it up (at a cost) and brought it back FIVE WEEKS LATTER. When they drove in my drive way I could not believe my eyes, It was trashed screeched up, dirty, rusty and bent. Called Westpro and sent them some pictures. It was about half hour later got an e-mail telling me they were sending me a new one, will arrive in three days. The service center was to pay for the one they trashed. I have never had better service then what I got from Westpro power systems. That's the kind of service you get when you buy a Westinghouse.

"Just received my generator this morning. Estes Freight was the company who delivered. They called in advance and also called me and told me they were on their way. Excellent Service!! The driver was very professional. I also had a sales rep from AP Electric call me personally. Was very impressed with their service.Besides the price was the lowest I could find and it came with a free cover....very sweet.
Got it put under my carport an proceeded to remove the packaging. Was the easiest assembly I've ever done, (considering Swing Set and furniture). Was very careful to read the entire section on assembly and operation. I was do in 30 min flat....from beginning to end. One slight drawback is that the generator took just a tad more than the 1.05 quarts of oil as it proved that the low oil shut down worked like a charm.
After I started it, I put a small load on it to test all the receptacles.....flawless. Now it's time to finish my small slab, get my transfer switch an get ready for hurricane season."

I have had the unit only a week and have not had to use it for storm duty yet. Unit seems well built, comes with all accessories needed to get started including engine oil, battery, and tool kit. I added the oil and put in some gas and the engine started on the first pull (unit has electric start, but I wanted to see how hard it would be to start manually). I used it to do some projects this weekend and all went well.

This is a good deal on a generator in this size range. Although it had not been rated on Consumer Reports I took a chance and tried it. I was most impressed with the oversized muffler and price of the unit. The generator is significantly quieter than my Generac 5500 Watt Cont. and will handle more load. The power output is slightly more stable, but I would not encourage using computers,flat screen tv's, and cable boxes without the aid of a apc power conditioner. The only con I see with the generator is the lack of an oil filter on the drive motor. I love the electric start but it's not necessary, it starts easy with recoil if battery dies.
This generator is fairly quiet with a substantial spark arrestor/muffler on the engine.Product Review Rating: 5/5

Like others have posted, I did a lot of research on generators before deciding on this one. I had hoped to find a Honda 6500, but even used they were 3 times the price of the Westinghouse, so this is a great alternative. Unfortunately the RPM is governed at top level, so when you start it up, it runs wide open with no option to slow the motor down if you have little or no load on it. I suppose to produce the correct voltage that is a requirement of the design. I know the generator/inverters that I considered (Honda and Yamaha) have a more sophisticated throttle control to let the engine slow down to only produce the amount of electricity you need to power the load placed upon the generator. That idea and design would save a considerable amount of fuel, and in a power-out situation, gasoline might be hard, if not impossible to obtain. Always remember you can siphon gasoline out of your vehicle if you are sheltering in place. I liked the fact that everything needed (1 quart of engine oil, handles, wheels, and assembly parts) were included in the shipping box with a manifest that identified each part. Assembly could not have been easier. The included battery was fully charged. When I got it all put together and properly grounded, and fueled with 1 gallon of Sta-Bil treated fuel, it fired right up on the second revolution. In conclusion, with the 3 year warranty that most generators do not have, this generator is the best buy on the market currently available. If there ever is an EMP pulse that takes the U.S. grid down, this generator might not be your salvation, but it will keep you in heat, water, and lights much longer than the unprepared. Now you just have to be able to keep others from taking what you've got.
