Run from this unit as fast as possible

This unit is total unreliable. It only started one time when it was needed. When Sandy hit my main circuit board blew.I was with out power for 24 hours, until a service tech replaced it. I lost another board with in a year. A total of 3 including the original. The latest break down was a voltage regulator. ?This part was of a poor quality and caused it to short out when exposed to water drops from snow. I would replace this unit but I have too much money invested in it. Run away?

Unreliable

|

We purchased this unit in April 2021. Since then we���ve lost power twice due to storms. Both times the unit started right up after the power went out. Both times the unit stopped working with in 24 hours. The error was load voltage both times. *Mind you we only have a few things running in the house. No major appliances except a refrigerator.

The first time the power went out the company we bought it from came out but pretty much did nothing. The second time the power went out they came out and changed a few things and it���s still only ran for a few hours. Now they���re going to have to take it back to the shop to do some more testing and repairs on it. The unit is just over a year old and has only been used for two power outages and has failed both times.

unreliable + zero support after warranty

|

I've owned the unit for (7) years meticulous maintenance. beginning of Jan 2017. major failures of key components. I have MANY service related repair by certified BS repair. Sump/Case Gasket failure due to moisture build-up in crankcase, control module failure(moisture). Starter failure, etc. I have lost all confidence in the B+S Products.
