generators.
Generac® Power Systems, Inc.
!
• For safety reasons, Generac recommends that the
installation, initial start-up and maintenance of
this equipment is carried out by an Authorized
Guardian Dealer.
• The engine exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide, which can be DEADLY. This dangerous gas, if
breathed in sufficient concentrations, can cause
unconsciousness or even death. This exhaust system must be installed properly, in strict compliance with applicable codes and standards.
Following installation, do nothing that might render the system unsafe or in noncompliance with
such codes and standards.
• Keep hands, feet, clothing, etc., away from drive
belts, fans, and other moving or hot parts. Never
remove any drive belt or fan guard while the unit is
operating.
• Adequate, unobstructed flow of cooling and ventilating air is critical to correct generator operation.
Do not alter the installation or permit even partial
blockage of ventilation provisions, as this can seriously affect safe operation of the generator. The
generator MUST be installed outdoors.
• When working on this equipment, remain alert at
all times. Never work on the equipment when
physically or mentally fatigued.
• Inspect the generator regularly, and contact the
nearest Guardian Authorized Dealer for parts
needing repair or replacement.
• Before performing any maintenance on the generator, disconnect its battery cables to prevent accidental start up. Disconnect the cable from the battery post indicated by a NEGATIVE, NEG or (–)
first. Reconnect that cable last.
• Never use the generator or any of its parts as a
step. Stepping on the unit can stress and break
parts, and may result in dangerous operating conditions from leaking exhaust gases, fuel leakage,
oil leakage, etc.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Guardian Air-cooled 7 kW, 12 kW and 15 kW Generators
ELECTRICAL HAZARDS
• All generators covered by this manual produce
dangerous electrical voltages and can cause fatal
electrical shock. Utility power delivers extremely
high and dangerous voltages to the transfer switch
as does the standby generator when it is in operation. Avoid contact with bare wires, terminals, connections, etc., while the unit is running. Ensure all
appropriate covers, guards and barriers are in
place before operating the generator. If work must
be done around an operating unit, stand on an
insulated, dry surface to reduce shock hazard.
• Do not handle any kind of electrical device while
standing in water, while barefoot, or while hands
or feet are wet. DANGEROUS ELECTRICAL
SHOCK MAY RESULT.
• The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires the
frame and external electrically conductive parts of
the generator to be connected to an approved earth
ground. Local electrical codes also may require
proper grounding of the generator electrical system.
• After installing this home standby electrical system, the generator may crank and start at any time
without warning. When this occurs, load circuits
are transferred to the STANDBY (generator) power
source. To prevent possible injury if such a start
and transfer occur, always set the generator’s
Auto/Off/Manual switch to its OFF position before
working on equipment and remove the 7.5A and
15A fuses from the generator control panel.
• In case of accident caused by electric shock, immediately shut down the source of electrical power. If
this is not possible, attempt to free the victim from
the live conductor. AVOID DIRECT CONTACT WITH
THE VICTIM. Use a nonconducting implement,
such as a dry rope or board, to free the victim from
the live conductor. If the victim is unconscious,
apply first aid and get immediate medical help.
• Never wear jewelry when working on this equipment. Jewelry can conduct electricity resulting in
electric shock, or may get caught in moving components causing injury.
FIRE HAZARDS
• For fire safety, the generator must be installed and
maintained properly. Installation always must
comply with applicable codes, standards, laws and
regulations. Adhere strictly to local, state and
national electrical and building codes. Comply
with regulations the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) has established.
Also, ensure that the generator is installed in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions
and recommendations. Following proper installation, do nothing that might alter a safe installation
and render the unit in noncompliance with the
aforementioned codes, standards, laws and regulations.
• Keep a fire extinguisher near the generator at all
times. Extinguishers rated “ABC” by the National
Fire Protection Association are appropriate for use
on the standby electric system. Keep the extinguisher properly charged and be familiar with its
use. Consult the local fire department with any
questions pertaining to fire extinguishers.
EXPLOSION HAZARDS
• Do not smoke around the generator. Wipe up any
fuel or oil spills immediately. Ensure that no combustible materials are left in the generator compartment, or on or near the generator, as FIRE or
EXPLOSION may result. Keep the area surrounding the generator clean and free from debris.
• Gaseous fluids such as natural gas and liquid
propane (LP) gas are extremely EXPLOSIVE.
Install the fuel supply system according to applicable fuel-gas codes. Before placing the home standby electric system into service, fuel system lines
must be properly purged and leak tested according
to applicable code. After installation, inspect the
fuel system periodically for leaks. No leakage is
permitted.

DANGER
!
1.1
Only qualified electricians or contractors should
attempt such installations, which must comply
strictly with applicable codes, standards and
regulations.
UNPACKING/INSPECTION
After unpacking, carefully inspect the contents
for damage.
• This standby generator set has been factory supplied with a weather protective enclosure that is
intended for outdoor installation only.
• This UL listed standby generator set is packaged
with an automatic transfer switch with built in load
center. The combination transfer switch and load
center is pre-wired with a two foot and 30 foot conduit. Circuit breakers for emergency circuit connections are included.
• This UL listed, 2-pole switch is rated at 100 AC
amperes at 250 volts maximum. This transfer
switch is for indoor use only.
If this generator is used to power electrical load
circuits normally powered by a utility power
source, it is required by code to install a transfer switch. The transfer switch must effectively
isolate the electrical system from the utility distribution system when the generator is operating (NEC 700, 701 & 702). Failure to isolate an
electrical system by such means will result in
damage to the generator and also may result in
injury or death to utility power workers due to
backfeed of electrical energy.
If any loss or damage is noted at time of delivery, have
the person(s) making the delivery note all damage on
the freight bill or affix their signature under the consignor's memo of loss or damage.
If a loss or damage is noted after delivery, separate
the damaged materials and contact the carrier for
claim procedures.
“Concealed damage” is understood to mean damage
to the contents of a package that is not in evidence at
the time of delivery, but is discovered later.
1.2
PROTECTION SYSTEMS
Unlike an automobile engine, the generator may have
to run for long periods of time with no operator present to monitor engine conditions. For that reason, the
engine is equipped with the following systems that
protect it against potentially damaging conditions:
1. Low Oil Pressure Sensor
2. High Temperature Sensor
4
3. Overcrank
4. Overspeed
Generac® Power Systems, Inc.
There are LED readouts on the control panel to notify personnel that one of these faults has occurred.
There is also a “System Set” LED that is lit when all
of the conditions describe in Section 1.3 are true.
1.3
NEC REQUIREMENT FOR ARC
FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTION
BREAKER FOR BEDROOMS
In 2001, the National Electric Code (NEC) introduced
a requirement for new construction. This new
requirement indicates the need for Arc Fault Circuit
Interrupters to be used to protect the complete
branch circuit that feeds a dwelling bedroom. The
actual NEC requirement is indicated below.
‹ 1.3.1
SECTION 210.12 ARC FAULT CIRCUIT
INTERRUPTER PROTECTION
1. Definition: An arc fault circuit interrupter is a
device intended to provide protection from the
effects of arc faults by recognizing characteristics
unique to arcing and by functioning to de-energize the circuit when an arc fault is detected.
2. Dwelling Unit Bedrooms: All branch circuits that
supply 125 volt, single-phase, 15 and 20 ampere
outlets installed in dwelling unit bedrooms shall
be protected by an arc fault circuit interrupter
listed to provide protection of the entire branch
circuit.
Section 210.12 requires that AFCI protection be provided on branch circuits that supply outlets (receptacle, lighting, etc.) in dwelling bedrooms. The requirement is limited to 15 and 20 ampere, 125 volt circuits. There is no prohibition against providing AFCI
protection on other circuits or in locations other than
bedrooms. Because circuits are often shared between
a bedroom and other areas such as closets and hallways, providing AFCI protection on the complete circuit would comply with 210.12.
If during the installation of the Guardian Home
Standby system the decision is made to provide back
up power to a bedroom branch circuit, then the circuit breaker in the Guardian Transfer Switch should
be replaced with an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter.
It is most important that breakers only be switched
like for like. For instance, if replacing a 15A breaker,
it MUST be replaced with a 15A AFCI breaker.
Likewise, a 20A breaker MUST be replaced with a
20A AFCI.
These AFCI breakers are available at the nearest
Home Depot or hardware store.

SYSTEM SET LED
DANGER
The “System Set” LED is lit when all of the following
conditions are true:
1. The AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is set to the
AUTO position.
2. The utility voltage being supplied to the unit is
being sensed by the PCB. If the utility sense voltage is not connected to the unit or if it is below
168 volts AC, then the system set light will flash
rapidly. This indicates that if the AUTO/OFF/
MANUAL switch is placed in the Auto position,
the generator will start.
3. The “Not In Auto” dip switch is set to the OFF
position on the control board.
4. No alarms are present, for example, low oil pressure, high temperature, etc.
1.7
FUEL REQUIREMENTS
AND RECOMMENDATIONS
With LP gas, use only the vapor withdrawal
system. This type of system uses the vapors formed
above the liquid fuel in the storage tank.
The engine has been fitted with a fuel carburetion
system that meets the specifications of the 1997
California Air Resources Board for tamper-proof dual
fuel systems. The unit will run on natural gas or LP
gas, but it has been factory set to run on natural gas.
Should the primary fuel need to be changed to LP
gas, the fuel system needs to be reconfigured. See
Section 1.9 for instructions on reconfiguration of the
fuel system.
Recommended fuels should have a Btu content of at
least 1,000 Btus per cubic foot for natural gas; or at
least 2,520 Btus per cubic foot for LP gas. Ask the
fuel supplier for the Btu content of the fuel.
Required fuel pressure for natural gas is 5 inches to
7 inches water colum (0.18 to 0.25 psi); and for
liquid propane, 11 inches to 14 inches of water
column (0.4 to 0.5 psi).
Gaseous fuels such as natural gas and liquid
propane (LP) gas are highly explosive. Even the
slightest spark can ignite such fuels and cause
an explosion. No leakage of fuel is permitted.
Natural gas, which is lighter than air, tends to
collect in high areas. LP gas is heavier than air
and tends to settle in low areas.
1.9
◆ 1.9.1 7 KW, 410CC ENGINE
To reconfigure the fuel system from NG to LP,
follow these steps (Figure 1.3):
NOTE:
The primary regulator for the propane supply is
NOT INCLUDED with the generator. A fuel pressure of 11 to 14 inches of water column (0.4 to 0.5
psi) to the fuel inlet of the generator MUST BE
SUPPLIED.

3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Turn off the main gas supply (if connected).
Open the roof and remove the door.
Remove the battery (if installed).
Disconnect wire #0 and wire #14 from the gas
solenoid on top of the demand regulator.
Remove the carburetor fuel hose from the outlet
port of the demand regulator.
Remove the demand regulator by removing the
fastener that retains the regulator mounting
bracket.
Remove the square headed steel pipe plug from
outlet port #1 and the brass hose barb fitting
from outlet port #2.
Refit the brass hose barb fitting to outlet port #1
and the square headed steel pipe plug to outlet
port #2.
NOTE:
Figure 1.3 – Demand Regulator
Any piping used to connect the generator to the
fuel supply should be of adequate size to ensure
the fuel pressure NEVER drops below 4 inches
water colum for natural gas or 10 inches water column for liquid propane for all load ranges.

◆ 1.10.1 GENERATOR
Install the generator set, in its protective enclosure,
outdoors, where adequate cooling and ventilating air
is always available. Consider these factors:
• Install the unit where air inlet and outlet openings
will not become obstructed by leaves, grass, snow,
etc. If prevailing winds will cause blowing or drifting, consider using a windbreak to protect the unit.
• Install the generator on high ground where water
levels will not rise and endanger it.
• Allow sufficient room on all sides of the generator
for maintenance and servicing. A good rule is to
allow three feet of space on all sides.
• Where strong prevailing winds blow from one
direction, face the generator air inlet openings to
the prevailing winds.
• Install the generator as close as possible to the fuel
supply, to reduce the length of piping.
• Install the generator as close as possible to the
transfer switch. HOWEVER, REMEMBER THAT
LAWS OR CODES MAY REGULATE THE DISTANCE.
The genset must be installed on a level surface. The
base frame must be level within two (2) inches all
around.

◆ 1.10.2 TRANSFER SWITCH
1.10.2.1 7 kW, 12 kW and 15 kW Units
The transfer switch shipped with this generator is
enclosed in a NEMA 1 enclosure. This type of enclosure is intended for indoor use only. Follow these
rules:
• Install the transfer switch indoors on a firm, sturdy supporting structure.
• To prevent switch distortion, level the switch if necessary. This can be done by placing washers
between the switch enclosure and mounting surface.
• Never install the switch where water or any corrosive substance might drip onto the enclosure.
• Protect the switch at all times against excessive
moisture, dust, dirt, lint, construction grit and corrosive vapors.
If the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is not set to
its OFF position, the generator can crank and
start as soon as the battery cables are connected. If the utility power supply is not turned off,
sparking can occur at the battery posts and
cause an explosion.
1.11 BATTERY INSTALLATION
Fill the battery with the proper electrolyte fluid if necessary and have the battery fully charged before
installing it.
Before installing and connecting the battery, complete
the following steps:
1. Set the generator's AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to
OFF.
2. Turn off utility power supply to the transfer
switch.
3. Remove the 7.5A and 15A fuses from the generator control panel.
Battery cables were factory connected at the generator (Figure 1.5). Connect cables to battery posts as
follows:
Figure 1.5 – Battery Cable Connections
4. Connect the red battery cable (from starter contactor) to the battery post indicated by a positive,
POS or (+).
5. Connect the black battery cable (from frame
ground) to the battery post indicated by a negative, NEG or (—).
NOTE:
Damage will result if battery connections are made
in reverse.
NOTE:
The generator is equipped with a battery trickle
charger that is active when the unit is set up for
automatic operation. With the battery installed
and utility power source voltage available to the
transfer switch, the battery receives a trickle
charge while the engine is not running, to prevent
self-discharge. The trickle charger is designed to
help extend the life of the battery by maintaining
the battery when the unit is not running. The
trickle charge feature cannot be used to recharge
a discharged battery.
1.12 THE BATTERY
DANGER
Do not dispose of the battery in a fire. The
battery is capable of exploding.
A battery presents a risk of electrical shock
and high short circuit current. The following
precautions are to be observed when working
on batteries:
• Remove the 7.5A and 15A fuses from the generator control panel.
• Remove watches, rings or other metal objects;
• Use tools with insulated handles;
• Wear rubber gloves and boots;
• Do not lay tools or metal parts on top of the
battery; and
• Disconnect charging source prior to connecting or disconnecting battery terminals.
!
Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released
electrolyte has been known to be harmful to
the skin and eyes, and to be toxic.
!
The electrolyte is a dilute sulfuric acid that is
harmful to the skin and eyes. It is electrically
conductive and corrosive.
The following procedures are to be observed:
• Wear full eye protection and protective clothing;
• Where electrolyte contacts the skin, wash it off
immediately with water;
• Where electrolyte contacts the eyes, flush
thoroughly and immediately with water and seek
medical attention; and

• Spilled electrolyte is to be washed down with an
acid neutralizing agent. A common practice is to
use a solution of 1 pound (500 grams) bicarbonate
of soda to 1 gallon (4 liters) of water. The bicarbonate of soda solution is to be added until the
evidence of reaction (foaming) has ceased. The
resulting liquid is to be flushed with water and the
area dried.
Lead-acid batteries present a risk of fire
because they generate hydrogen gas. The
following procedures are to be followed:
• DO NOT SMOKE when near the battery;
• DO NOT cause flame or spark in battery area; and
• Discharge static electricity from body before touching the battery by first touching a grounded metal
surface.
!
Be sure the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is set to
the OFF position before connecting the battery
cables. If the switch is set to AUTO or MANUAL,
the generator can crank and start as soon as
the battery cables are connected.
Be sure the utility power supply is turned off
and the 7.5A and 15A fuses are removed from
the generator control panel, or sparking may
occur at the battery posts as the cables are
attached and cause an explosion.
Servicing of the battery is to be performed or supervised by personnel knowledgeable of batteries and
the required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.
When replacing the battery, use the following type of
battery: Group 26/26R 12-volt DC, negative ground
battery with a rating of 350 cold-cranking amps minimum for 7 kW; 525 cold-cranking amps minimum
for 12 and 15 kW at -17.8º C (0º F) minimum. When
using a maintenance-free battery, it is not necessary
to check the specific gravity or electrolyte level. Have
these procedures performed at the intervals specified
in the “Service Schedule.” A negative ground system
is used. Battery connections are shown on the wiring
diagrams. Make sure the battery is correctly connected and terminals are tight. Observe battery polarity
when connecting the battery to the generator set.

AUTOMATIC TRANSFER
OPERATION
To select automatic operation, do the following:
1. Make sure the transfer switch main contacts are
set to their UTILITY position, i.e., loads connected to the utility power source (Figure 3.2).
2. Be sure that normal UTILITY power source voltage is available to transfer switch terminal lugs
N1 and N2.
3. Set the generator’s AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to
AUTO.
4. Set the generator’s main circuit breaker to its ON
(or closed) position.
With the preceding steps complete, the generator will
start automatically when utility source voltage drops
below a preset level. After the unit starts, loads are
transferred to the standby power source. Refer to
Section 3.4, “Sequence of Automatic Operation.”
‹ 3.3.1
12 VDC ACCESSORY OUTLET
Your generator is equipped with a 12 VDC accessory
outlet in the Generator Control Panel. (Figure 3.1)
With the generator running or in standby mode, this
outlet may be used to temporarily power low power
accessories such as a work light, cell phone, radio or
any other automotive style accessory. This outlet is
capable of delivering a MAXIMUM of 7.5 Amps. If the
accessory to be used through this circuit demands
too much power, the fuse that protects this circuit
will melt open and the circuit will not be functional.
!
This 12 VDC outlet draws power from the
generator's starting battery and extended use
of this outlet may drain the battery and the
engine may not start. This outlet should NOT
be used for battery charging.
‹ 3.3.2
120 VAC GFCI OUTLET
Your generator is equipped with an external, 15 amp,
120 volt, GFCI convenience outlet that is located in
the right rear of the generator enclosure. (Figures 1.1
and 1.2, page 5) When the generator is running, in
the absence of utility power, this outlet may be used
to power items outside your home such as lights or
power tools. This outlet may also be used when utility power is present by running the generator in manual mode. This oultlet does not provide power if the
generator is not running. This outlet is protected by a
15-amp circuit breaker located in the generator control panel. (Figure 3.1).
3.4
SEQUENCE OF AUTOMATIC
OPERATION
The generator’s control panel houses a control logic
circuit board. This board constantly monitors utility
power source voltage. Should that voltage drop below
a preset level, circuit board action will signal the
engine to crank and start. After the engine starts, the
circuit board signals the transfer switch to activate
and connect load circuits to the standby power supply (load terminal lugs T1/T2 connect to terminal
lugs E1/E2).
Upon restoration of utility source voltage above a preset level, generator circuit board action signals the
transfer switch to transfer loads back to that power
supply. After retransfer, the engine is signalled to shut
down.
The actual sequence of operation is controlled by
sensors and timers on a control logic circuit board,
as follows:
A. Utility Voltage Dropout Sensor
• This sensor monitors utility source voltage.
• If utility source voltage drops below about 70 percent of the nominal supply voltage, the sensor
energizes a 15-second timer.
• Once the timer has expired, the engine will crank
and start.
B. Engine Warm-up Time Delay
• This mechanism lets the engine warm up for
about 10 seconds before the load is transferred
to the standby source.
C.Standby Voltage Sensor
• This sensor monitors generator AC output voltage. When the voltage has reached 50 percent of
the nominal rated voltage, transfer to standby
can occur.
D.Utility Voltage Pickup Sensor
• This sensor monitors utility power supply voltage. When that voltage is restored above 70 percent of the nominal source voltage, a retransfer
time delay starts timing.

The electrolyte is a dilute sulfuric acid that is
harmful to the skin and eyes. It is electrically
conductive and corrosive. The following
procedures are to be observed:
Wear full eye protection and protective clothing;
Where electrolyte contacts the skin, wash it off
immediately with water;
Where electrolyte contacts the eyes, flush
thoroughly and immediately with water and seek
medical attention; and
Spilled electrolyte is to be washed down with an
acid neutralizing agent. A common practice is to
use a solution of 1 pound (500 grams) bicarbonate
of soda to 1 gallon (4 liters) of water. The bicarbonate of soda solution is to be added until the
evidence of reaction (foaming) has ceased. The
resulting liquid is to be flushed with water and the
area dried.

Lead-acid batteries present a risk of fire
because they generate hydrogen gas. The
following procedures are to be followed:
BATTERY MAINTENANCE
The battery should be inspected per the “Service
Schedule,” Section 4.13. The following procedure
should be followed for inspection:
1. Inspect the battery posts and cables for tightness
and corrosion. Tighten and clean as necessary.
2. Check the battery fluid level of unsealed batteries
and, if necessary, fill with Distilled Water Only. Do
not use tap water in batteries.
3. Have the state of charge and condition checked.
This should be done with an automotive-type battery hydrometer.
DANGER
Do not dispose of the battery in a fire. The
battery is capable of exploding.
A battery presents a risk of electrical shock
and high short circuit current. The following
precautions are to be observed when working
on batteries:
20 Generac® Power Systems, Inc.
Do not open or mutilate the battery. Released
electrolyte has been known to be harmful to
the skin and eyes, and to be toxic.
• DO NOT SMOKE when near the battery;
• DO NOT cause flame or spark in battery area; and
• Discharge static electricity from body before touching the battery by first touching a grounded metal
surface.
!
Be sure the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch is set to
the OFF position before connecting the battery
cables. If the switch is set to AUTO or MANUAL,
the generator can crank and start as soon as
the battery cables are connected.
Be sure the utility power supply is turned off
and the 7.5A and 15A fuses are removed from
the generator control panel, or sparking may
occur at the battery posts as the cables are
attached and cause an explosion.

ADJUSTING GH-410/GT-990/760
VALVE CLEARANCE
After the first 6 months of operation, adjust the
valve clearance in the engine.
Important: If feeling uncomfortable about doing this
procedure or the proper tools are not available,
please contact the Generac Authorized dealer for
service assistance. This is a very important step to
insure longest life for the engine.
To adjust valve clearance:
• Make sure the engine is at room temperature.
• Make sure that the spark plug wire is removed
from the spark plug and out of the way.
• Remove the four screws attaching the valve cover
with a #2 or #3 phillips screwdriver.
• Make sure the piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC)
of its compression stroke (both valves closed). To
get the piston at TDC, remove the intake screen at
the front of the engine to gain access to the flywheel
nut. Use a large socket and socket wrench to rotate
the nut and hence the engine. While watching the
piston through the spark plug hole. The piston
should move up and down. The piston is at TDC
when it is up as high as it can go.
• Loosen the rocker jam nut. Use an 10mm allen
wrench to turn the pivot ball stud while checking
clearance between the rocker arm and the valve
stem with a feeler gauge. Correct clearance is
0.002-0.004 inch (0.05-0.1 mm).
NOTE:
• Install new valve cover gasket.
• Re-attach the valve cover.
NOTE:
Start all four screws before tightening or it will not
be possible to get all the screws in place. Make
sure the valve cover gasket is in place.
• Re-attach the spark plug wire to the spark plug.
• On GT-990, Repeat the process for the other cylinder.
4.9
COOLING SYSTEM
Air inlet and outlet openings in the generator compartment must be open and unobstructed for continued proper operation. This includes such obstructions as high grass, weeds, brush, leaves and snow.
Without sufficient cooling and ventilating air flow, the
engine/generator quickly overheats, which causes it
to quickly shut down. (See Figure 4.9 for vent locations.)
Figure 4.9 – Cooling Vent Locations
Hold the rocker arm jam nut in place as the pivot
ball stud is turned.
When valve clearance is correct, hold the pivot ball
stud in place with the allen wrench and tighten the
rocker arm jam nut. Tighten the jam nut to 174
in/lbs. torque. After tightening the jam nut, recheck
valve clearance to make sure it did not change.
The exhaust from this product gets extremely
hot and remains hot after shutdown. High
grass, weeds, brush, leaves, etc. must remain
clear of the exhaust. Such materials may ignite
and burn from the heat of the exhaust system.

CALIFORNIA EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY STATEMENT
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Generac Power Systems, Inc. (Generac) are pleased to explain the Emission
Control System Warranty on your new engine.* In California, new utility, and lawn and garden equipment engines must be
designed, built and equipped to meet the state’s stringent anti-smog standards. Generac will warrant the emission control
system on your engine for the periods of time listed below provided there has been no abuse, neglect, unapproved modification or improper maintenance of your engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor, ignition system and exhaust system. Generac will
repair your engine at no cost to you for diagnosis, replacement parts and labor, should a warrantable condition occur.
MANUFACTURER’S EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY COVERAGE:
Emissions control systems on 1995 and later model year engines are warranted for two years as hereinafter noted. If, during such warranty period, any emission-related component or system on your engine is found to be defective in materials or
workmanship, repairs or replacement will be performed by a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility.
PURCHASER’S/OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the engine purchaser/owner, you are responsible for the completion of all required maintenance as listed in your factory
supplied Owner’s Manual. For warranty purposes, Generac recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance
on your engine. However, Generac cannot deny warranty solely due to the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the
completion of all scheduled maintenance.
As the engine purchaser/owner, you should, however, be aware that Generac may deny any and/or all warranty coverage or
responsibility if your engine, or a part/component thereof, has failed due to abuse, neglect , improper maintenance or unapproved modifications, or the use of counterfeit and/or “grey market” parts not made, supplied or approved by Generac.
You are responsible for contacting a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility as soon as a problem occurs. The
warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
Warranty service can be arranged by contacting either your selling dealer or a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility.
To locate the Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility nearest you, call our toll-free number:
1-800-333-1322
IMPORTANT NOTE: This warranty statement explains your rights and obligations under the Emission Control System
Warranty (ECS Warranty), which is provided to you by Generac pursuant to California law. See also the “Generac Limited
Warranties for Generac Power Systems, Inc.,” which is enclosed herewith on a separate sheet, also provided to you by
Generac. The ECS Warranty applies only to the emission control system of your new engine. If there is any conflict in terms
between the ECS Warranty and the Generac Warranty, the ECS Warranty shall apply except in circumstances where the
Generac Warranty may provide a longer warranty period. Both the ECS Warranty and the Generac Warranty describe important rights and obligations with respect to your new engine.
Warranty service can be performed only by a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility. When requesting warranty service, evidence must be presented showing the date of the sale to the original purchaser/owner.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact Generac at one of
the following addresses:

EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY
Emission Control System Warranty (ECS Warranty) for 1995 and later model year engines:
(a) Applicability: This warranty shall apply to 1995 and later model year engines. The ECS Warranty Period shall begin on
the date the new engine or equipment is purchased by/delivered to its original, end-use purchaser/owner and shall continue for 24 consecutive months thereafter.
(b) General Emissions Warranty Coverage: Generac warrants to the original, end-use purchaser/owner of the new engine or
equipment and to each subsequent purchaser/owner that each of its engines is ...
(1) Designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by the CARB pursuant to its
authority, and
(2) Free from defects in materials and workmanship which, at any time during the ECS Warranty Period, may cause a warranted emissions-related part to fail to be identical in all material respects to the part as described in the engine manufacturer’s application for certification.
(c) The ECS Warranty only pertains to emissions-related parts on your engine, as follows:
(1) Any warranted, emissions-related parts that are not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the Owner’s
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 Generac according to Subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under the
ECS Warranty shall be warranted for the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
(2) Any warranted, emissions-related part that is scheduled only for regular inspection as specified in the Owner’s 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.
(3) Any warranted, emissions-related part that 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 Generac according to Subsection
(4) 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.
(4) Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissions-related part under this ECS Warranty shall be performed at no
charge to the owner at a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility.
(5) When the engine is inspected by a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Facility, the owner shall not be held responsible for diagnostic costs if the repair is deemed warrantable.
(6) Generac shall be liable for damages to other original engine components or approved modifications proximately caused
by a failure under warranty of any emission-related part covered by the ECS Warranty.
(7) Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, Generac shall maintain a supply of warranted emission-related parts sufficient
to meet the expected demand for such emission-related parts.
(8) Any Generac authorized and approved emission-related replacement part may be used in the performance of any ECS
Warranty maintenance or repairs and will be provided without charge to the owner. Such use shall not reduce Generac
ECS Warranty obligations.
(9) Unapproved, add-on, modified, counterfeit and/or “grey market” parts may not be used to modify or repair a Generac
engine. Such use voids this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient grounds for disallowing an ECS Warranty claim.
Generac shall not be held liable hereunder for failures of any warranted parts of a Generac engine caused by the use of
such an unapproved, add-on, modified, counterfeit and/or “grey market” part.
