Rated 2 out of 5 by from will never buy another IQ2000 I have had nothing but problems I had to replace both inverters good thing still under warranty. But about 6 months after warranty ran out the capacitor went out and no you can't just change it. They are Junk !!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Price is right I bought 1 and put the whole package of oil in and I believe that caused it not to start. I took it back and exchanged it for another identical one, this time I didn't use the whole amount of oil provided. The 2nd one works like a champ, first pull start for now. Have not had an opportunity to run for extended times so will have to update this review at a later time. I work construction and have been around many Generac products without any issues and was a driving force in my purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2 bought units constantly miss one leaks oil I bought these units a couple years back and have had problems with them since right out of the box. Both units constantly miss. I tried new plugs, tried gapping within specified range multiple times and tried 93 octane gas. Even spent $20 on one of those alcohol free gas cans. No good. My conclusion is they have crappy magnetos. One unit after running and sitting develops a small puddle of oil underneath. Extremely dissatisfied with them. Likelihood to buy Generac again is zero. Note: The inverter covers the misses. Output seems ok but then again I'm not hooking up a fluke scope.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crap! Might be a nice generator for camping, if I could get it to start. But I wouldn’t know, because it won’t start fresh out of the box. Taking it back to the store. Called Generac for help but it was no help at all. Extremely disappointed!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaking oil on first day of use Bought this unit at Mayo Garden center in Knoxville TN. Dealer prepped product for me. Took it home and started it up. Started easy and ran great for about 4 hours and shut it down. Woke up next morning and started again. Ran about 2 hours and went back to check and noticed a pool of oil underneath. Looked thru manual for troubleshooting info and nothing available about oil leaking. Tried to find info online at website and it is terrible. No direct way to email or chat with rep to find solution. hopefully, someone will read this and reach out to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaking oil in the box, missing funnel, won't start, made in China not USA Bought the IQ2000 from Menards on 03/30/2020. Opened the box to find the oil fill funnel missing and oil leaking onto the cardboard. The generator also smelled of gasoline when I opened the fuel fill cap so I assume it was run before or maybe it was refurbished but sold at full new price by Menards. The unit doesn't run at all despite me using the Generic supplied oil, filling it to the correct fill line and using fresh 93 octane gas. Followed the setup and starting process from the manual but it won't start. Not even a stumble then shutoff. Extremely disappointed in Generac and Menards. Will probably return this unit if Generic can't resolve the issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cannot get parts after 3 years for an IX2000 Purchased an IX2000 in June 2016, after also owning 20K standby and 6500 portable units from Generac. Ran great for 3 years. In June 2019 the unit would not start. Dealer said internal engine part had cracked, and that it was no longer available. They gave me the unit back in pieces in a cardboard box, in exchange for only the $80 inspection fee. (They were good to me for not charging me the extra cost for the engine teardown and reassemble) I understand parts obsolescence and stocking policies, but three years? Come on guys, your portable units should not be throwaways. While I'm hoping that parts availability is better for the IQ series, I will check with Generac before I consider purchasing a replacement model from them.
