Operation
Generator Location
Starting the Engine
Please consult your local authority. In some areas,
generators must be registered with the local utility.
Generators used at construction sites may be subject to
additional rules and regulations.
This generator must have at least five feet of clearance
from combustible material. Leave at least three feet
of clearance on all sides of the generator to allow for
adequate cooling, maintenance and servicing.
Place the generator in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT
place the generator near vents or intakes where exhaust
fumes could be drawn into occupied or confined
spaces. Carefully consider wind and air currents when
positioning generator.
1. Make certain the generator is on a flat, level surface.
2. Disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.
Never start or stop the generator with electrical
devices plugged in or turned on.

Surge Protection
CAUTION
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.
2. Obtain an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) device.
Most UPS devices come with a rechargeable battery
between the electronic equipment and power supply
source. The device buffers the voltage and protects
against virtually all short-duration voltage fluctuations.

REV 40026-20101025
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.
Connecting Electrical Loads
1. Let the engine stabilize and warm up for a few
minutes after starting
2. Plug in and turn on the desired 120/240 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.
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.

Operation
Stopping the Engine
Wattage Reference Chart
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. Turn the ignition switch to the “Off” position.
4. Turn the fuel valve to the “Off” position.
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)
Do Not Overload Generator
Capacity
Running
Watts (A)
Item
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.

Emission Control System Warranty
Your Champion Power Equipment (CPE) engine complies with U.S. EPA emission regulations.
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS:
The US EPA AND CPE are pleased to explain the Federal Emission Control Systems Warranty on your 1997 and
later small off-road engine. New engines must be designed, built and equipped, 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.

Emission Control System Warranty (ECS Warranty) for 1997 and later model year engines):
1. APPLICABILITY: This warranty shall apply to 1997 and later model year engines). The ECS 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
CPE warrants to the original, end-use purchaser of the new engine or equipment and to each subsequent
purchaser that each of its small off-road engines is:
a. Designed, built and equipped so as to conform at the time of sale with applicable 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 emissions-related part repaired or replaced under the
ECS Warranty, shall be warranted for the 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 Warranty claim. CPE shall not be liable
hereunder for failures of any warranted parts of a CPE engine caused by the use of such an unapproved add-on
or modified part.
