I did order cover for that gen. This was on back order and held up my delivery for three days. Was not informed of back order. Had to find out by Researching it. Still On back order

Louder than a Harbor Frieght 3500, but not much. Love the remote key fob start/stop. Genny's live in my shed/garage ~75' from house, which means I can't hardly hear them when running. Can be started/stopped from inside the house, which is spiffy when outside temp is -30F. I'm an old die hard Onan fanboy. Everybody else compares themselves to Onan for reliability. Am also an old retired Navy Submariner and have worked on & owned a wide variety of generators (800W to 1.2 MW & everything in between) in my lifetime. I now own 2 Westinghouse genny's this one and a WGEN7500DF. Both have never seen a drop of gasoline. I live off grid (20+ years wind/solar) and warehouse propane (3x 1,000 gallon tanks) to heat with and as emergency power when the wind/solar ain't up to par in the winter. Propane is HALF the cost of gasoline, stores forever, and you don't have to tote it. Both units were purchased from Home Depot shipped to Store. Least expensive source compared to Lowe's, Menards, & Amazon. The 7500 arrived un-damaged, the 3600 arrived w/ damage to the box. The oil funnel was crushed, which Home Depot replaced, on the spot, w/ a store stocked unit. Superb Home Depot support. Unit comes w/ EVERYTHING to get it up and running in minutes short of fuel. Both units will run in sub-zero weather off of small propane cylinders (20lb, 30lb, & 100lb). 20lb'ers will ice up faster than the larger tanks. I plumbed mine into my campus wide propane distribution system off of a gas company supplied 10lb to 1/2 lb regulator w/ isolation valves located @ each unit. See attached photo. These units are VERY frugal with regard to propane consumption. Oil changes, after the initial 20 hour break in, can be extended if one uses pure synthetic 10W30 oil. Just monitor oil clarity and change it when it starts to get cloudy. Units have NO oil filtration. Would be nice if if the units had spin-on filters, but really not required if one is diligent regarding oil change intervals. Which reduces operational expenses. In the winter, these units might run for days without attention, given the wind/solar energy input. And if operated within rated parameters work flawlessly. Westinghouse tech support/warranty coverage is EXCELLENT and English speaking out of Colunbus OH. My only criticism is repair parts are shipped USPS, 4 days OH to MN. Both units will ice plug (at the air cleaner) the valve cover crankcase breather when operated in sub-zero weather. Solution is to unplug rubber breather hose at the valve cover during subzero operation. At 20F and above units start reliability, below 20F occasionally choke servo does not operate completely requiring manual choke operation. This is acceptable as the unit is NOT rated for use below 20F. Be VERY observant with regard to surge starting loads (AC, Air Compressor, Well Pump, etc.). Units will mechanically handle massive overloads, the AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) & control unit not so much. My 20+ year old 1/2 hp well pump caused the burnout of 2 AVR's (@$28.30 each + shipping) on the 7500 due to excessive starting current, which Westinghouse covered under warranty till I figured out what the cause was. I now warehouse AVR's due to shipping delays and use my 30Kw Onan to recharge my water system (2x 119 gallon well tanks). Don't even expect the 3600 to run an old well pump, and don't even bother trying. AVR's come un-adjusted, which Westinghouse recommends to NOT adjust. This is false as there is a small blue multi turn pot on the back side which the Chinese designer/engineer in Shenzen advised, during a late night chat, was adjustable. He was correct. Adjust to a no load voltage of 250V @ 62Hz as indicated on the front panel meter. This will yield a phase to neutral voltage of ~122V no load & @ a 10A load (~30% loading) a voltage of 120V RMS. Resistive loads will cause this reading to rise slightly, reactive/inductive loads will cause this reading to drop slightly. The AVR's are potted, which means you'll destroy the AVR if trying to repair it. Bummer. But at a replacement cost of $28.30 each, who cares. They're easy to replace by removing 2 7mm screws w/ pop connectors on all the connections. Brushes are likewise easy to replace, 2 spade connectors and 1 cap screw. To protect the AVR from frying itself, I spliced in a 250V 2A 5cm x 20cm fast blow inline fuse in the positive lead to the brushes. Average DC field current @ a 10A 240V load is ~1.3A - 1.4A (see attached photo). The field waveform is actually a PWM signal @ ~125Hz @ ~100V (see attached photo). The equivalent average DC voltage is ~66V (see attached photo). The AVR varies the duty cycle (on time/off time) of this waveform to effectively increase/decrease apparent DC field current. It is VERY quick to maintain output voltage in the adjusted range, which is a good thing and reduces brown outs during high starting loads. Which means it will start things other generators won't. The 7500 has a "Smart Switch" port on the front panel. This can be used for a hard wired remote start/stop switch/button and/or integrated w/ a generator start module. Westinghouse tech support won't divulge what the pins do and/or what they are used for. Grounding ATS pin 3 for 2-3 seconds will start the unit if stopped. Grounding ATS pin 3 for 2-3 seconds if running will stop the unit. The connector on the front panel is NOT a standard 7 pin DIN plug. It's a smaller diameter Chinese equivalent orderable on ebay. Look at the supplied schematic in the back of the owners manual. :) Have owned/operated the WGEN7500DF for >1 year (1,928 hours @ the time of this writing) and is still going strong. Bought the WGEN3600DF in late December of 2019 as a backup to the 7500. This summer I'll watch for a low price on another WGEN7500DF and acquire a replacement for when the existing 7500 wears out. Looking for a sub $1,000 price point including tax & shipping. Caught the first one on sale and was less than $900 including tax/shipping. All in All this is one heck of a unit @ the price point & warranty. Comparing to units many times more expensive given the features included (dual fuel, remote start, automated start/stop, etc). And no I don't work for or am compensated in any way by Westinghouse or Home Depot. I paid for these with my own hard earned $$$$, and would again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall-So Far Great UPS damage to the box but the generator when unpacked was perfect. Assembled easily using directions. Oiled it up. Hooked up the propane for first start. Used the push button electric start and it started and ran immediately. I then checked the remote which came pre-programmed and shut it down with a push of the button. I then used the remote to re-start it and the remote worked perfectly. Shut it down with the remote. Using the nice charger to charge the battery over night although it worked perfectly. Tomorrow with a full tank of gas will try the starting and remote runniing the gen on gas. Will also run it tomorrow for a full 5 hours to break it in. So far wonderful. Evently I aim to corner the high altitude kit from Westinghouse since this unit is intended afor a mountain cabin at 5400ft in the Sierras. El Cajon here where I first started is basically sea level being a suburb of San Diego. Unit looks nice. Wheels and handle to roll it around are great. So far all good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied Generator is a replacement for one that would not start despite being serviced more than once. This unit starts, but cannot be run on propane as it pulsates constantly and then dies out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Generator starting and running Gen3600_1 damaged in shipping. took back to store and replaced. Gen3600_2 replacement hard to start on propane and ran rough. Warrantee replaced regulator, carburettor, fuel selector valve twice still ran rough. Replaced with Gen3600_3, it also runs rough on propane unless fuel selector valve turned clockwise 1/4 turn after starting. Acts like it runs too rich.
