Question about Electrical Supplies
I can give you the "OWNERS MANUAL" for the 5500/8200 Model 16172 Electra generator, but I don't think that is what you're looking for, is it? I purchased the generator at the Navy Exchange and got the 3 year warranty on it. When it suddenly wouldn't start going into it's third year, I contacted the warranty center and they told me where to take the generator for repair. That shop worked on it and finally got it to start, but when they attempted a second start - the starter 'dogs' hung up and were destroyed. The shop attempted to locate parts, technical services, etc., for Electra, but couldn't find anything and the warranty center finally returned my purchase money and the shop sent the generator back to the warranty center. Does the manufacturer still even exist? Don't Know.... Tom.... Pensacola, Fl
