I have had my 2300 for about 7 years. Have had to disassemble and clean the fuel petcock a couple times. The breaker failed and wouldn't carry a sufficient load so I bypassed that. I may burn up the generator one of these days. I'm planning to leave town in a couple weeks with my RV so I tried to start it and the recoil starter spring broke. I have not been able to find a replacement part. I also have gas leak if I leave the petcock on with the motor not running. ~ Final judgement… Read Full Review

I bought this generator a while back and had no reason to use it but did start it on occasion just to make sure it would work if needed. Just in running it to check it out I've had to fix the carb. reset the idle speed over and over again. now all the gas leaks out because the shut off valve quit working. I removed it to find the seals were all installed sloppy. I now feel I should replace it before i really do need it. It's bad that you can actually break down some thing just by testing it. I… Read Full Review

I live in Puerto Rico and I bought the UST 5500W Generator in anticipation of Tropical Storm Isaac and other power outages that often happen here. I couldn't even start the generator, the gas was leaking from the carburetor. Then, I returned the unit for another (after receiving an exchange code, of course), and now this other unit does not even shut off when I want it to. I have to wait until the gas runs out after shutting off the fuel line. This is two brand new units that do not work. I… Read Full Review

Purchased a new UST GG2300 at PEP BOYS. The 20 amp circuit on this UST GG2300 generator would NOT run the same load as an ONAN generator with a 15 amp circuit. I brought the UST GG2300 generator back to PEP BOYS and was told NO RETURNS!!! on these generators. Generator ran 8 hours, carb malfunctioned. Replaced the carb with a new carb. The replacement carb was also defective. A third carb corrected the defect. Generator ran 50 hours, started to go intermittent. This item is STANDARD MADE… Read Full Review

I bought 2 of them 2 years ago, started them bith up about 1 1/2 years ago and now can't get them going. Needed them this past week and couldn't get either one going. On one a piece of the gas handle broke off when I turned it on, doesn't matter anyway as they don't run. I was really disapointed when I could not find a customer rep or tech support. All I can say is be careful of what you buy… Read Full Review

I live in my RV and use the 1200 watt every day. It runs about 10 hours minimum daily. I do weekly oil changes and clean the air filter twice a week. I've only had to replace the petcock once. I'e been runing it for a year and a half with only a $10 replacement part. I would say that i'm happy with my purchase. Maybe everyone else is not happy because they are trying to run to much on not enough wattage… Read Full Review

Piece of garbage. Ran 200 hours within the first month of usage then the valve broke off and was pushed through the cylinder head by the piston. The metal was cheapy, even the cylinder head. I've seen aluminum cans with thicker aluminum. Anyway, a call was put into the importer in California and they said it was a limited warranty of 60 hours and anything after that is considered excessive. We filed a complaint with the US Product and Safety Commission. Real simple to do. I suggest… Read Full Review

I'm sorry, but spending $300 for a generator that basically is a throw away/paper weight model after using for 10 days is just plain irresponsible! Getting any support from their toll free number is a joke. I went through the kill switch my first weekend using on a camping trip.
2 more part replacements for the second time I used this piece of cr_p machine. Now, no warranty support, and no electric coming from this unit. Never, ever again will I waste a penny on these lame Chinese made… Read Full Review

The UST GG2300 usually starts on the first pull and ran great for awhile. After about 200 hours the engine block is leaking oil and a spring on the throttle broke.It's a fairly quiet unit but that's about it.I have a Wisconsin powered unit from the 60's I bought used that I have thousands of hours on and there's no problem.The same for my Onan.
I'd save the few hundred more and buy a real Honda, or get a used American generator for half the price that you can at least find parts for.
But if… Read Full Review

2 circuits should be split between the 240V plug and the 120V plug, instead, the 240v plug runs on the same circuit as two of the 120V plugs, which could easily overload and flip the breaker, IF you could get the 120/240V circuit to actually switch to 240V.
This UST GG2300 generator failed to supply even the most basic power needs. My refrigerator comes on, but the lights are dim and does not operate at full capacity (food in the freezer still thaws out), and it will not support a running… Read Full Review

I have two and one version has a plastic cord pull box cover in which the cord would cut through the plastic. The metal seems to work fine on the other unit.
Also, one of my units has an area where the electrical wire has burned near the upper rt. corner inside panel side/Ruva CBB61-400Vac… Read Full Review

I am very pleased with this UST GG2300! It ran great during a power outage about a year ago and it is ready to go for another!
You won't go wrong with this little unit if it meets your power needs… Read Full Review

I think the UST GG2300 is a great generator for the sale price of $200.00 in Utah and elsewhere as of Feb. 2008 at Big 5. Noise inside of truck box with tailgate closed is very acceptable. Nice even running sound… Read Full Review

The UST GG2300 great value for the buck. I have a 2300 and a 5500 living off grid. These has been the best generators I have ever had. Always use synthetic oil and they will last a long time… Read Full Review
