Of doubtful integrity
Interesting to read these reports. I bought one of these generators and was very happy with it until at about 30 hours on the clock. I gave it a service (qualified mechanic) and took the covers off to get to some loose studs. Cut a long story short I started it after the service and it ran ok. Few days later started it and it ran poorly, revs fluctuated (clearly electronic throttle not functioning) all over the place and no read out on the digital display and no 240v output. Pulled the covers off again and found a fault which I blame myself ...for. Bought a new inverter/ mother board for about $200 dollars fitted it, no better. Asked for advice and didn't get any so ordered a new regulator for about $90, still no go. Checked all the phase windings and no obvious fault there. so everything checked and still a problem. Each time I asked for advice or clue was told to send it back to Sydney (I too live in Adelaide) and they would charge me $90 just to look at it plus $90 an hour for any repairs so just not economical. The thing is still sitting under the bench and each time I look at it reminds me not to buy anything from them again. Having said that I would buy (at the right price) a stuffed one I can use for parts just to prove a point
Purchased in April 2016.
You can't get a quart out of a pint pot!
All of these cheap Chinese generator inverters claiming around 3.7kW output should be banned and the importers distributors given steep fines for misrepresentation. Look at the engine specifications; usually a 150cc engine producing 3.5 hp at 5,000 rpm. 3.5hp is 2.6kW and that is gross output from the engine, less (power factor due to transmission loss) will be delivered to the generator. So where does the other 1.1Kw come from? These generators are either the magic wonder of eternal power, forever sought by mankind or they are the heaps of garbage reported by buyers.
I purchased the Fuji Micro F6200Ri in December 2016 during the week long SA power outage. It has been used for a total of less than eleven hours and now has no 240VAC output and of course is out of warranty The USB and 12v outputs are OK. A local SA repairer has told me a new one is cheaper than repair. I contacted Edisons for a circuit diagram or any technical tips on what might be wrong and was told to bring it to Sydney ( not practical, I am in Adelaide) or to take it to a local repairer who should contact them.Already done that. They say get a new one. Stay away from Fuji Micro no practical back up. I have read three reviews with the same problem at approx the same running hours
Fuji Micro is a piece of S..T
I purchased one of these units from Mytopia and within 10 hours of use the revs were running high and low with no 240 volt power out of the outlets...
I called Mytopia to recieve no back up service but lip service that went no where. hopeless!!!!
Do not buy from Mytopia they are a scam
Same problem - as other reviewers
Have had the generator for over 12 months but only has 6 hours on the meter. I sent to a small engine mechanic and he said to take it the tip. Would not buy another unit. Starts and runs but no 240V power. What, what else can i say the generator is no good and no back up from the sales, have now dumped it at the tip.
On second one and still no good.
Purchased first one on ebay, at exactly 10 hours unit started revving crazy no power, unit replaced by seller no worries, second unit - same problem at same hours.
What a piece of junk. Have had similar ones that are magnificent, but note there were not the EFI units? Damn
Excessive revs when started with nothing connected also there is no 240 volts AC power output
To MYTOPIASTORE on Friday 02/02/18 (E-Bay return request, Product faulty - current)
At the present time I have a Inverter/Generator which looks good but is of no value to me and I also feel that pulling the Generator apart will void any waranty. I will find out the cost of sending the Generator back to you. If the cost is very high, I may as well take the Generator to my local Rubbish Tip in Tyabb. I have only started this Generator 3 times since receiving it and found it to be faulty. I am very disappointed in this product and would not recom...
Glad some folks had luck with theirs. Had problems with mine from day 1. It is hard to start, battery is forever flat. To start you need to unscrew the back to access the choke, bad design, then you need to connect the battery to a external one then it starts good, so much messing around. Of course the battery is a special so you cannot go buy one off the shelf as the shelf ones are 10mm too wide to fit the space. Gave up trying to start it with pull string, too hard. Informed Mytopia but got messed around till warranty expired. Gave up with them. Will not buy or recommend anything from Mytopia. If you have a problem, you will be stuck with it. Also these generators are not 3.2kw as advertised, they are 2.8kw at best.
What a great generator
Bought this on special at Edisons for the caravan. Great unit runs the aircon and charges the batteries no problems. Does Not even break a sweat, Remote start a great feature especially if its cold and wet in the morning and you want that heater to run to warm up the van before you get out of bed :)
Not too bad for the price
The 6200RI is made by Fuji Micro as is the 5200RI which is the same except for the LCD readout (6200 has one but 5200 doesnt).
The 6200RI does come packed with features over some other generators. The main ones being - An electric keystarter, a remote starter (as well as the standard pull start), The LCD which indicates output in watts, oil condition and overall run time.
The true advantage of this generator (for me) is that at 3200 watts nominal and 3700 watts peak (for a few minutes) its capable of running all appliances in my motorhome INC...
Questions & Answers
My 3700 is hunting especially under load
Hunting is generally due to fuel supply and less often air supply. It is usually due to insufficient fuel which I suspect is the case for you as it's happening under load but there is sometimes a similar effect when the choke is on and the engine has reached operating temperature. So check fuel lines and flow, choke and air filter. Be sure too that you are not overloading the generator because in my estimate the max operating load is closer to 2.5kW.
Where can you buy spare parts( fuel tap on/off valve) from ?? F6200Ri
