Written on: 12/08/2009 by schundg (1 review written)

After owning a Generac 4675-2 15KW Residential fixed generator for my home it quit working after 5 years of ownership. The unit was operational for only 5 full days over the 5 year period.

“The two cylinder motors on the Generac/Guardian...”

Written on: 24/10/2003 by thepilgrim (1 review written)

The two cylinder motors on the Generac/Guardian 04456-1 LP are destined to fail, since the spark plugs in cylinders one and two do not burn evenly, this leads to a compression loss in cylinder number one, which eventualy leads to a blown motor.

The voltage barriers supplied with the external connection boxes are of inferior quality, and either break or disintigrate, without any pressure or over-torqueing, and this is a life-threatening situation, since these connection boxes enclose the… Read Full Review

I am a generator installer with thirty years experience. I have installed many 04456-1 units. In the past five years we have had no problems with this unit. During Isabel many customers reported that their units ran for five to eleven days. We had two units shut down because of low oil pressure. I now leave two cans of oil for the customer when we do start up on the generator. Note these air cooled units run and have little trouble when a factory start up is performed. If you want more information go to the Guardian web site. Most of the trouble calls our firm handles come from customers that have a regular electrician do the installation on. All of our generator technicians have attended a number of factory schools. Jim.holt@earthlink.net
