OPERATION
DON'T
OVERLOAD
THE
GENERATOR
•
Some electric motors, such as inductiontypes, require
about two and a half times more watts of power for
starting than for running_ This surge of power lasts only
a few seconds when starting such motors. Make sure
you allow for this high starting wattage when selecting
electrical devies to connect to your generator. First,
figure the watts needed to start the largest motor. Add
to that figure the running watts of all other connected
loads
•
The GUIDE below is provided to assist you in determining how many items your generator' can operate at
one time..
This generator is equipped with two 20-amp, one 20-amp
and one 30-amp circuit breakers, which protect the unit
against electrical overload. Overloading a generator in
excess of its rated wattage capacity can result in damage
to the generator to connected electrical devices Observe
the following, to prevent overloading the unit:
•
=
Add up the total wattage of all electrical devices to be
connected at one time_ This total should NOT be
greater than the generator's wattage capacity.
The rated wattage of lights can be taken from light
bulbs
The rated wattage of tools, appliances and
motors can usually be found on a data plate or decal
affixed to the devicelf the appliance, toot or motor does
not give wattage, mufitpty 120 volts times ampere rating
to determine watts (volts x amps = watts).

CHANGING OIL
RECOMMENDATIONS
Change oil after first 8 hours of operation. Change oi! every
50 hours thereafter. If you are using your generator under
dirty or dusty conditions, or in extremely hot weather,
change oil more often..
The Owner/Operator is responsible for making sure that all
periodic maintenance tasks are completed on a timely
basis; that all discrepancies are corrected; and that the unit
is kept clean and properly stored. Never operate a damaged or defective generator. Fo}low the recommendations
in the SERVICE RECOMMENDATIONS chart on page 9.
Change oil while engine is still warm from running, as
follows:

and drain oil completely into a suitable container.
EXTENDED
OIL FILL AND DIPSTICK
Generator maintenance constists of keeping the unit clean
and dry Operate and store the unit in a clean dry environment where it will not be exposed to excessive dust, dirt,
moisture or any corrosive vapors Cooling air SlotS in the
generator must not become clogged with snow, leaves,or
any other foreign material
Check the cleanliness of the generator frequently and clean
when dust, dirt, oil, moisture or other foreign substances
are visible on its exterior surface
NOTE: We DO NOT recommend using a garden hose to
clean generator Water can enter the engine fuel system
and cause problems tn additon, if water enters the generator through cooiing air slots, some of the water witt be
retained in voids and cracks of the rotor and stator winding
insulation. Water and dirt buildup on the generator internal
windings will eventually decrease the insulation resistance
of these windings

require
no addittona!adjustmenL Do not attempt to change engine speed. If
you believe the engine Is running too fast or too
slow, take your generator to an authorized Sears
Service Center for repair and adjustment. CHANG_
ING ENGINE GOVERNED SPEED WILL VOID ENGINE WARRANTY.
•
tf further adjustment is needed, the main adjustment should
be made under a load condition as outlined under LOAD
ADJUSTMENT
LOAD ADJUSTMENT
•
•
•
Th speed of the generator is maintained by an electronically
controlled governor. DO NOT try to adjust the governed
speed setting for the following reasons:
•
°
°
High engine speeds are dangerous and increase the
risk of personal injury or damage to equipment.
Low engine speeds impose a heavy load on the engine
when sufficient engine power is not available and may
shorten engine life
The generator will supply correct rated AC frequency
and voltage only at the proper speed Some connected
electrical devices could be damaged by incorrect frequency and/or voltage
CARBURETOR
You may need to adjust the carburetor to compensate for'
differences in fuel, temperature, altitude or load
Air
cleaner and air cleaner cover must be assembled to carburetor when you run the engine
Turn the valve to mid point between rich and lean
=
•
Let engine accelerate to normal governed speed.
Apply electrical loads to the generator at or near the
unit's full rated wattage/amperage capacity.
If the engine stops or hesitates under load, open the
IDLE MIXTURE screw 1/8 turn at a time. Test each
setting with the engine under load until engine runs
smoothly.
If engine smokes excessively, turn the IDLE MIXTURE
SCREW clockwise 1/8 turn at a time until condition is
corrected
After IDLE MIXTURE SCREW is properly set, move
throttle to idle speed position. If engine does not idle
smoothly turn IDLE SPEED SCREW 1/8 turn at a time
(either direction) until engine runs smoothly
NOTE: Engines operated at altitudes at about 5000 feet or
higher may require that you install a high altitude carburetor
main jet (Part No 80883) to achieve best engine performance If engine performs erratically, contact your Sears
Service Center to install the high altitude jet
NOTE: DO NOT remove the air cleaner when running the
engine Operation without the air cleaner fully assembled
