one (1) year from the date of purchase, subject to
exclusions noted herein.
DURING THE PERIOD OF WARRANTY any
authorized Yamaha consumer generator dealer
will, free of charge, repair or replace, at Yamaha’s
option, any part adjudged defective by Yamaha
due to faulty workmanship or material from the
factory. Parts used in warranty repairs will be warranted for the balance of the product’s warranty
period. All parts replaced under warranty become
property of Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A.
GENERAL EXCLUSIONS from this warranty shall
include any failures caused by:
a. Installation of parts or accessories that are not
qualitatively equivalent to genuine Yamaha
parts.
b. Abnormal strain, neglect, or abuse.
c. Lack of proper maintenance.
d. Accident or collision damage.

YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. MAKES
NO OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE WHICH EXCEED
THE OBLIGATIONS AND TIME LIMITS STATED IN
THIS WARRANTY ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED BY
YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A. AND
EXCLUDED FROM THIS WARRANTY.
SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON
HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q. What costs are my responsibility during the
warranty period?
A. The customer’s responsibility includes all
costs of normal maintenance service, nonwarranty repairs, accident damages, as well
as oil and spark plugs.
Q. What are some examples of “abnormal” strain,
neglect, or abuse?
A. These terms are general and overlap each
other in areas. Specific examples include:
Running the machine out of oil; lack of proper
maintenance; operating the machine with a
broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail; and so on. If you have any
specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer for advice.
Q. Does the warranty cover incidental costs such
as transportation due to a failure?
A. No. The warranty is limited to repair of the
machine itself.
Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended
maintenance shown in the Owner’s Manual
instead of having the dealer do them?
A. Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow
the procedures specified in the Owner’s and
Service Manual. We do recommend, however,
that items requiring special tools or equipment
be done by a Yamaha generator dealer.
Q. Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do
not operate or maintain my new Yamaha
exactly as specified in the Owner’s Manual?
A. No. The warranty on a new Yamaha cannot
be “voided” or “cancelled.”
However, if a particular failure is caused by
operation or maintenance other than as
shown in the Owner’s Manual, that failure
may not be covered under warranty.
Q. What responsibility does my dealer have
under this warranty?
A. Each Yamaha generator dealer is expected
to:
1. Check the operation of the generator
before sale.
2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and
warranty requirements to your satisfaction
at the time of sale, and upon your request
at any later date.
In addition, each Yamaha generator dealer is
held responsible for his setup, service and
warranty repair work.
Q. Is the warranty transferable to second owners?
A. Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty
can be transfered upon request.
The unit has to be inspected and reregistered
by an authorized Yamaha generator dealer for
the policy to remain effective.
CUSTOMER SERVICE

741-090
Before the generator can be connected to a building’s electrical system, a licensed electrician must
install an isolation (transfer) switch in the building’s main fuse box. The switch is the connection
point for generator power and allows selection of
generator or main line power to the building. This
will prevent the generator from charging the main
power line (backfeeding) when the main power
supply has failed or has been turned off for line
repair. Backfeeding can electrocute or injure line
maintenance personnel. Also, generator and building electrical system damage can occur when normal operating power returns if unit is used without
an isolation switch.

EXTENSION CORD NOTES
9 When using an extension cord, its total length
should not exceed
 60 meters for cross section of 1.5 mm square
 and

 100 meters for cross section of 2.5 mm

9 This extension cord should be protected by a
tough flexible rubber sheath (IEC 245) or the
equivalent to withstand mechanical stresses.

Overload indicator light
The overload indicator light 1 comes on when an
overload of a connected electrical device is detected,
the inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output
voltage rises. The electronic breaker will then activate,
stopping power generation in order to protect the generator and any connected electric devices. The AC
pilot light (green) will go off and the overload indicator
light (red) will stay on, but the engine will not stop running.
When the overload indicator light comes on and power
generation stops, proceed as follows:
1. Turn off any connected electric devices and stop
the engine.
2. Reduce the total wattage of connected electric
devices within the application range.
3. Check for blockages in the cooling air inlet and
around the control unit. If any blockages are
found, remove.
4. After checking, restart the engine.
NOTE:
9 The generator AC output automatically resets
when the engine is stopped and then restarted.
9 The overload indicator light may come on for a
few seconds at first when using electric devices
that require a large starting current, such as a
compressor or a submergible pump. However, this
is not a malfunction.
