Hi all,

I just had a 7043 22kw guardian generator installed 2 weeks ago. The fascia molding at the base of the generator does not sit flush with the cabinet at the back of the unit. It's about an inch away at the center of its run. When the gen was installed, the guys built a box out of 2 x 6's and filled it with gravel. Four of us then lifted the generator in place using 2 pipes through the holes in the base. The level was checked and believe it or not it was just about perfect on the first shot. The guys then installed the fascia, and I really didn't pay any attention to it until yesterday. It seems like one of the stones is in the way of the fascia and holding it from sitting flush. I tried to get my fingers in there, but the majority of the stone is not within my reach. If I remove the fascia, I will be able to get to it and move it out of the way. I really did not notice how the fascia snaps together, so I am asking you guys. Can the fascia molding be disassembled without breaking anything ??? I really do not want to break whatever holds it together.

Thanks,


RON

The 4 pieces just snap together. Get a grip on one short piece and pull it away from the long piece at the corner of the unit. They snap together straight, and come apart straight, don't bend them at the joint or you may snap the plastic clips.

Take a long thin screwdriver, peek behind a corner, see the tab, pry it in the appropriate direction....
State your problem, not your diagnosis.

Thanks guys, I'll give it a try. It's quite flexible, so hopefully it comes apart without any tabs breaking. There's one piece of stone that is sticking out past the black base, and that's holding the molding away from the back of the generator. The weight of the generator is keeping me from moving it with my fingers if I pull the molding away. Once I get the molding off, I'll try tapping that stone totally under the base with a hammer.
