WARNING To reduce the risk of serious injury or even death, read the following safety precautions and operating instructions before operating this generator. DANGER Using a generator indoors WILL KILL YOU IN MINUTES. ■ Generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide. This is a poison you cannot see or smell. ■ NEVER use inside a home or garage, even IF doors and windows are open; only use OUTSIDE and far away from windows, doors and vents. DANGER FUEL IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE AND EXPLOSIVE ■ Always turn off the engine before adding fuel. Hot engine parts, sparks or cigarettes can ignite gasoline. Store fuel away from generator. ■ Never refuel while smoking or in the vicinity of an open flame. ■ Take care not to spill any fuel on the engine or muffler when refueling. ■ Before transporting the generator in a vehicle, drain all fuel to prevent leakage that may occur. ■ Store the generator in a well ventilated area with the fuel tank empty. DANGER ELECTRICAL SHOCK ■ Never operate the generator in rain, in wet or damp locations, or with wet hands, a serve electrical shock may occur causing serious injury. ■ Generator should not be operated or stored in wet or damp conditions or on highly conductive locations such as metal decking and steel work. ■ Always make sure the generator is properly grounded before operating. Failure to do so may result in serious injury. WARNING ENGINE AND MUFFLER MAY BE HOT Contact with muffler area can result in serious burns. Exhaust heat/gases can ignite combustibles, structures or damage fuel tank causing a fire. ■ DO NOT touch hot parts and AVOID hot exhaust gases. ■ Allow equipment to cool before touching. U.S. Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Title 36 Parks, Forests, and Public Property require equipment powered by an internal combustion engine to have a spark arrester, maintained in effective working order, complying to USDA Forest service standard 5100-1C or later revision. In the State of California a spark arrester is required under section 4442 of the California Public resources code. Other states may have similar laws. WARNING Starter and other rotating parts can entangle hands, hair, clothing, or accessories. ■ Do not wear loose clothing, jewelry, or anything that may be caught in the starter or other rotating parts. ■ Tie up long hair when operating the generator. WARNING KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY Keep bystanders, especially children and pets, at least 50 feet (15m) from the generator. Do not let children touch the generator. When not in use, the generator should be stored in a dry, locked location, out of reach of children. CAUTION HEAVY LOAD Use proper lifting techniques when transporting the generator from site to site. Improper lifting techniques may result in personal injury. CAUTION Improper treatment of generator can damage it and shorten its life. To prevent surging that may possibly damage equipment, do not allow engine to run out of fuel when electrical loads are applied. Do not stick anything through ventilating slots, even when the generator is not operating. This can damage the generator or cause personal injury. The generator will do a better and safer job and give you much better service if it is used at the rate for which it was designed. ■ Load must be kept within rating stated on generator nameplate. Overloading will damage the unit or shorten its life. ■ Engine must not be run at excessive speeds. Operating an engine at excessive speeds increases the hazard of personal injury. Do not tamper with parts which may increase or decrease the governed speed Do not connect the generator to another generator to use in parallel. Doing so may result in damage to the internal components. Extension cords, power cords, and all electrical equipment must be in good condition. Never operate electrical equipment with damaged or defective cords. CAUTION Your generator should never be operated under these conditions. a. Uncontrolled change in engine speed. b.

Rain or inclement weather. Do not let the unit get wet when operating. NOTICE Engine oil is hazardous to the environment. Be very careful when changing your oil or working with oil not to spill it onto the ground. Even if it is washed away, it will not mix with water and will pollute the watershed—having a negative effect on the plants and animals that it comes in contact with. When disposing of engine oil: 1. While changing the engine oil, place a drip pan under the oil plug to collect the waste. 2. Soak up any spills with sawdust, kitty litter, or sand. NEVER dump down the drain or sewer. 3. Take the oil and filter to an oil recycling center. TOTAL WATTAGE, VOLTAGE AND INSTALLATION Total Wattage In order to prevent overloading and possible damage to your generator it is necessary to know the total wattage of the connected load. To determine which tools and/or appliances your generator will run follow these steps: 1. Determine if you want to run one item or multiple items simultaneously. 2. Check wattage requirements for the items you will be running by referring to the load’s nameplate or by calculating it (multiply amps x volts = watts). 3. Total the watts for each item. If the nameplate only gives volts and amps, multiply volts x amps = watts. 1 KW = 1,000 watts. 4. Motorized appliances or tools require more than their rated wattage for start up. NOTE: Allow 2 1/2 to 4 times the listed wattage for starting equipment powered by electric motors. 5. The generator’s rated watts should match or exceed the total number of watts required for the equipment you want to run. 6. Always connect the heaviest load to the generator first, then add other items one at a time. Voltage WARNING Operating voltage and frequency requirement of all electronic equipment should be checked prior to plugging them into this generator. Damage may result if the equipment is not designed to operate within a +/- 10% voltage variation, and +/- 3 hz frequency variation from the generator name plate ratings. To avoid damage, always have an additional load plugged into the generator if solid state equipment (such as a television set) is used. A power line conditioner is recommended for some solid state applications. A power line conditioner should be used when running one or more of the following solid state items: Garage door openers, Kitchen appliances with digital displays, Televisions, Stereos, Personal computers, Quartz clocks, Copy machines, Telephone equipment, and other solid state equipment may require a power line conditioner. Installation WARNING To avoid possible personal injury or equipment damage, a registered electrician or an authorized service representative should perform installation and all service. Under no circumstances should an unqualified person attempt to wire into a utility circuit. To avoid backfeeding into utility systems, isolation of the residence electrical system is required. Before temporary connection of the generator to the residence electrical system, turn off the main service/disconnect. If your generator is to be used as a stand-by power source in case of utility power failure, it should be installed by a registered electrician and in compliance with all applicable local electrical codes. Proper use requires that a double throw transfer switch be installed by a licensed qualified electrician so that the building's electrical circuits may be safely switched between utility power and the generator's output, thereby preventing backfeed into the power utility's electrical system. WARNING To avoid backfeeding into utility systems, isolation of the residence electrical system is required. Before temporary connection of a generator to the residence electrical system turn off the main switch. Before making permanent connections a double throw transfer switch must be installed. To avoid electrocution or property damage, only a trained electrician should connect generator to residence electrical system. California law requires isolation of the residence electrical system before connecting a generator to residence electrical systems. Temporary connection not recommended due to backfeeding. Always follow local codes and regulations that apply to the installation of any item that concerns this product.

Tripped circuit breaker Reset Poor connection or faulty lead Check and repair Broken receptacle Faulty circuit breaker Contact us Generator problem Low Temperature Starting Generally, most gas powered generators have increased difficulty in starting during cold temperatures. Ease of starting improves if the generator has been stored under more temperate conditions such as in a garage or basement. CAUTION The generator should not be stored in such locations unless all fuel has been drained from the unit. Please see ‘STORAGE’ within this manual for further instruction. When starting the generator at a temperature below freezing the following steps are recommended: - Engine oil is to 5W-30 4-stroke formulation (low temperature oil) instead of 10W-30 oil. - Pull the starter cord briskly 3 times, and then wait 15 seconds if the engine does not start. The delay of 15-seconds allows excessive fuel in the spark plug to vaporize. Failure to delay for 15-seconds pulling more than 3-times at one time may cause the spark plug to become flooded. If the spark plug becomes saturated with fuel, the engine will not start. - If the engine does not start after many pulls, check the spark plug. If the spark plug is saturated with fuel and/or carbon deposits, clean or replace with a clean spark plug. SPECIFICATION MODEL NO. MBG1200 SERIAL NO.
