crapped out after 3 years of limited service and can't get it fixed
Purchased this unit 3 years ago to use when dry camping. It worked wonderfully till this last March when it stopped and wouldn't restart. Took it to a small motor repair shop and was told that the plastic air filter holder had broken and probably sucked small pieces of plastic into the engine. No one was willing to tear apart the motor to fix it and it would probably have cost more than a new one anyway, so reluctantly i dropped it off at a recycling depot where it ended up in the trash. Big disappointment!
Purchased in February 2017 at Your Home Depot for $545.00.
Piece of junk - spare parts backup hopeless
Unit out of warranty but has not done many hours running. Requires a new inlet valve for engine. Hyundai cannot supply, you have to buy a complete engine - spend $550 plus for the sake of a $20 part. Would not purchase Hyundai product again.
Don't bag this generator
After doing much research on generators and having owned a 1kva Honda for 8 years, I bit the bullet and brought the Hyundai. Why? Well a few years ago I brought a Hyundai Santa Fe and I never could fault it , it was a great vehicle, so after discounting the negative and a plainly fraudulent you tube video I saw, I went ahead with the purchase. The unit performs as well as the Honda with the bonus of electric remote stating.
Its continuous output is rated 40 watts over the Honda 2 kVA model. (I have not actually tested it to see if it is true)...
Questions & Answers
I bought this at a stock sale when the retailer was selling his business. Today I tried to start it for the first time as there is a planned power outage tomorrow. Just will not start. Tomorrow morning I am going to buy a new spark plug. other than that i haven't got a clue what could be wrong.
It went bang wen I tried starting it last night now don't go at all hy2000si hx125. any ideas?
Sorry, I cannot be of any help. My unit failed after a few hours use due to a faulty inlet valve on the engine but there was no bang - it just stopped. Hyundai were not able to supply me with a replacement valve. Do you know if the "bang" was from the engine or the electrics?
Sorry ... can't help you. This was my husbands domain and he is no longer with us
