Safety Information

CAUTION
PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS MANUAL
COMPLETELY, BEFORE OPERATING THIS GENERATOR.
Never operate the engine in an enclosed area, All gasoline engines produce carbon
monoxide gas while running. Breathing exhaust fumes can kill. Operate the engine in a
well-ventilated area, only.
Extract from CPSC Document #5008 on Carbon Monoxide
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued the following warning regarding
carbon monoxide poisoning:
• Do not use portable heaters or lanterns while sleeping in enclosed areas such as tents, campers, and
other vehicles. This is especially important at high altitudes, where the risk of carbon monoxide
poisoning is increased.
• Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning: headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea,
vomiting, sleepiness, and confusion. Carbon monoxide reduces the blood`s ability to carry oxygen.
Low blood oxygen levels can result in loss of consciousness and death
• See a doctor if you or a member of your family develops cold or flu like symptoms.
Carbon monoxide poisoning can easily be mistaken for a cold or flu, and is often detected too late.
• Alcohol consumption and drug use increase the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Carbon monoxide is especially toxic to mother and child during pregnancy, infants the elderly,
smokers, and people with blood or circulatory system problems, such as anemia, or heart disease.
Fuel Is Highly Flamable
DO NOT refuel while engine is running.
DO NOT refuel near sparks or open flame.
DO NOT smoke while refueling.
ALWAYS allow the engine and muffler to cool before refueling.
Refuel ONLY in well-ventilated area.
DO NOT over-filll gas tank
Engine And Mufler Get Very Hot
Keep flammable materials at least 3 feet from generator.
When in use, place generator in an area where children are not likely to touch it.
Electric Shock Hazard
DO NOT operate in rain or snow, or next to body of water.
DO NOT touch with wet hands.
Be sure to USE GROUNDED PLUGS with the generator.
DO NOT connect generator to commercial power outlets.

STARTING THE ENGINE
1. Disconnect all electric appliances from generator before starting.
2. Turn fuel shut-off lever to "ON".
3. Move Choke lever all the way to the left.
4. Turn engine switch to "ON" position.
