Keep choke lever in “Choke” position for only 1
pull of the recoil starter. After first pull, move choke
lever to the “Run” position for up to the next 3
pulls of the recoil starter. Too much choke leads to
sparkplug fouling/engine flooding due to the lack of
incoming air. This will cause the engine not to start.
NOTE
If the engine starts but does not run make certain
that the generator is on a flat, level surface. The
engine is equipped with a low oil sensor that will
prevent the engine from running when the oil level
falls below a critical threshold.
Voltage fluctuation may impair the proper
functioning of sensitive electronic equipment.
Electronic devices, including computers and many
programmable appliances use components that are
designed to operate within a narrow voltage range and
may be affected by momentary voltage fluctuations.
While there is no way to prevent voltage fluctuations, you
can take steps to protect sensitive electronic equipment.
1. Install UL1449, CSA-listed, plug-in surge suppressors
on the outlets feeding your sensitive equipment.
Surge suppressors come in single- or multi-outlet
styles. They’re designed to protect against virtually
all short-duration voltage fluctuations.

Operation
Connecting Electrical Loads
Do Not Overload Generator
1. Let the engine stabilize and warm up for a few
minutes after starting
2. Plug in and turn on the desired 120 Volt AC single
phase, 60 Hz electrical loads.
–– DO NOT connect 3-phase loads to the generator.
–– DO NOT connect 50 Hz loads to the generator.
–– DO NOT overload the generator.
Capacity
NOTE
Connecting a generator to your electric utility
company’s power lines or to another power source
may be against the law. In addition this action,
if done incorrectly, could damage your generator
and appliances and could cause serious injury or
even death to you or a utility worker who may be
working on nearby power lines. If you plan to run a
portable electric generator during an outage, please
notify your electric utility company immediately
and remember to plug your appliances directly
into the generator. Do not plug the generator into
any electric outlet in your home. Doing so could
create a connection to the utility company power
lines. You are responsible for ensuring that your
generator’s electricity does not feed back into the
electric utility power lines.
If the generator will be connected to a building
electrical system, consult your local utility company
or a qualified electrician. Connections must isolate
generator power from utility power and must comply
with all applicable laws and codes.
Stopping the Engine
1. Turn off and unplug all electrical loads. Never start
or stop the generator with electrical devices plugged
in or turned on.
2. Let the generator run at no-load for several minutes
to stabilize internal temperatures of the engine and
generator.
3. Press the ignition switch to the “OFF” position.
4. Turn the Fuel Valve to the “OFF” position.
Important: If the generator will be moved or stored
turn the Fuel Valve to the “OFF“ position and ensure
the Ignition Switch on the Power Panel is in the “OFF“
position.

Follow these simple steps to calculate the running and
starting watts necessary for your purposes.
1. Select the electrical devices you plan on running at
the same time.
2. Total the running watts of these items. This is
the amount of power you need to keep your items
running.
3. Identify the highest starting wattage of all devices
identified in step 1. Add this number to the number
calculated in step 2. Surge wattage is the extra
burst of power needed to start some electric driven
equipment. Following the steps listed under “Power
Management” will guarantee that only one device will
be starting at a time.
Power Management
Use the following formula to convert voltage and
amperage to watts:
Volts x Amps = Watts
To prolong the life of your generator and attached
devices, follow these steps to add electrical load:
1. Start the generator with no electrical load attached
2. Allow the engine to run for several minutes to stabilize.
3. Plug in and turn on the first item. It is best to attach
the item with the largest load first.
4. Allow the engine to stabilize.
5. Plug in and turn on the next item.
6. Allow the engine to stabilize.
7. Repeat steps 5-6 for each additional item.
NOTE
Never exceed the specified capacity when adding
loads to the generator.

Operation
Wattage Reference Chart
Use the chart to determine approximate wattage
requirements for your equipment.
CAUTION
Exceeding specified load capacity can result in
damage to the generator.
To determine total wattage necessary to power
a device, ADD Running Watts to Starting Watts.
(A+B). Starting watts can exceed three times the
running watts. The values in the following table are
approximate. Refer to your tool or appliance for actual

YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS:
The US EPA AND CPE are pleased to explain the Federal Emission Control Systems Warranty

at the time of sale, to meet U.S. EPA regulations for small non-road engines. CPE must warrant
the emission control system on your small off-road engine for the period of time listed below,
provided there has been no abuse, neglect, unapproved modification, or improper maintenance of
your small off-road engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel-injection system, the
ignition system, catalytic converter and fuel lines. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors
and other emission related assemblies. Where a warrantable condition exits, CPE will repair your
small off-road engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY COVERAGE:
This emission control system is warranted for two years, subject to provisions set forth below. If,
during the warranty period, emission related part on your engine is defective in materials or
workmanship, the part will be repaired or replaced by CPE.
OWNER WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required
maintenance listed in your Owner’s Manual. CPE recommends that you retain all your receipts
covering maintenance on your small off-road engine, but CPE cannot deny warranty solely for the
lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should however be aware that CPE may deny you
warranty coverage if your small, off-road engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect,
improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to an Authorized CPE service outlet,
CPE dealer or CPE, Santa Fe Springs, Ca. as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs
should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact:

Coverage.
Emission Control System Warranty (ECS Warranty) for 1997 and later model year engines):

Warranty Period shall begin on the date the new engine or equipment is delivered to its original,
end-use purchaser, and shall continue for 24 consecutive months thereafter.
2. GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE

subsequent purchaser that each of its small off-road engines is:

regulations under section 213 of the Clean Air Ac, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.
b. Free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted
part to be identical in all material respects to the part as described in the engine manufacturer’s
application for certification for a period of two years.
3. THE WARRANTY ON EMISSION-RELATED PARTS WILL BE INTERPRETED AS
FOLLOWS:
a. Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in
the Owners Manual shall be warranted for the ECS Warranty Period. If any such part fails during
the ECS Warranty Period, it shall be repaired or replaced by CPE according to Subsection “d”
below. Any such part repaired or replaced under the ECS Warranty shall be warranted for any
remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
b. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is scheduled only for regular inspection
as specified in the Owners Manual shall be warranted for the ECS Warranty Period. A statement
in such written instructions to the effect of “repair or replace as necessary”, shall not reduce the
ECS Warranty Period. Any such part repaired or replaced under the ECS Warranty shall be
warranted for the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
c. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is scheduled for replacement as required
maintenance in the Owner’s Manual shall be warranted for the period of time prior to the first
scheduled replacement point for that part. If the part fails prior to the first scheduled replacement,
the part shall be repaired or replaced by CPE according to Subsection “d” below. Any such

remainder of the ECS Warranty Period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for such
emissions-related part.
d. Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissions-related part under this ECS
Warranty shall be performed at no charge to the owner at a CPE Authorized Service Outlet.
e. The owner shall not be charged for diagnostic labor which leads to the determination
that a part covered by the ECS Warranty is in fact defective, provided that such diagnostic work is
performed at a CPE Authorized Service Outlet.
f. CPE shall be liable for damages to other original engine components or approved
modifications proximately caused by a failure under warranty of an emission-related part covered
by the ECS Warranty.
g. Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, CPE shall maintain a supply of warranted
emission-related parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such emission-related parts.
h. Any CPE Authorized and approved emission-related replacement part may be used in
the performance of any ECS Warranty maintenance or repair and will be provided without charge
to the owner. Such use shall not reduce CPE’s warranty obligation.

i. Unapproved add-on or modified parts may not be used to modify or repair a CPE
engine. Such use voids this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient grounds for disallowing an ECS

CPE engine caused by the use of such an unapproved add-on or modified part.

Power Equipment dealer who is authorized by Champion Power Equipment, Inc. to sell and
