WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
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.
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.
CUSTOMER SERVICE
If your machine requires warranty service, you
must take it to any authorized Yamaha generator
dealer within the continental United States. Be
sure to bring your warranty registration identification or other valid proof of the original date of

the dealer level, this person is in the best position to help you. If you are still not satisfied and
require additional assistance, please write:
Q. Does the warranty cover incidental costs

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.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
The federal government requires each manufacturer to maintain a complete, up-to-date list of all
first purchasers against the possibility of a safety-related defect and recall. This list is compiled
from the purchase registrations sent to Yamaha
Motor Corporation, U.S.A. by the selling dealer
at the time of your purchase. If you should move
after you have purchased your new generator,
please advise us of your new address by sending a postcard listing your Yamaha model name,
engine number, dealer number (or dealer’s
name) as it is shown on your warranty identification, your name and new mailing address. Mail
to:
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.
YAMAHA MOTOR CORPORATION, U.S.A.
WARRANTY DEPARTMENT
P.O. Box 6555
Cypress, California 90630
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.
This will ensure that Yamaha Motor Corporation,
U.S.A. has an up-to-date registration record in
accordance with federal law.

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.
