party testing and listing agency.
The criteria was to determine the worst case fire scenario
within the generator and to determine the ignitability of
items outside the engine enclosure at various distances.
The enclosure is constructed of non-combustible
materials, and the results and conclusions from the
independent testing lab indicated that any fire within the
generator enclosure would not pose any ignition risk to
nearby combustibles or structures, with or without fire
service personnel response.
• The generator must be installed on a level surface.
The generator must be level within a 0.5 in (13
mm) all around.
• The generator is typically placed on pea gravel,
crushed stone or a concrete pad. Check local
codes to see what type is required. If a concrete
pad is required, all applicable codes should be
followed.
Installation Guidelines for Stationary Air-Cooled
Generators
The National Fire Protection Association has a standard
for the installation and use of stationary combustion
engines. That standard is NFPA 37, its requirements limit
the spacing of an enclosed generator set from a structure
or wall (Figure 3-1).
NFPA 37, Section 4.1.4, Engines Located Outdoors:
Engines, and their weatherproof housings if provided,
that are installed outdoors shall be located at least 5 ft
(1.52 m) from openings in walls and at least 5 ft (1.52 m)
from structures having combustible walls. A minimum
separation shall not be required where the following
conditions exist:
1.
12
The adjacent wall of the structure has a fire resistance rating of at least 1 hour.

generator, next to the generator’s data decal)
http://www.swri.org/4org/d01/fire/listlab/listprod/director.htm
Based on this testing and the requirements of NFPA 37,
Sec 4.1.4, the guidelines for installation of the generators
listed above are changed to 18 in (457 mm) from the
Installation Guidelines For 60 Hz Air-cooled Generators
Section 3: Site Selection and Preparation
back side of the generator to a stationary wall or building.
For adequate maintenance and airflow clearance, the
area above the generator should be at least 5 ft (1.52 m)
with a minimum of 3 ft (.91 m) at the front and ends of the
enclosure. This would include trees, shrubs and bushes.
Vegetation not in compliance with these clearance
parameters could obstruct air flow. In addition, exhaust
fumes from the generator could inhibit plant growth. See
Figure 3-1 and the installation drawing within the owner’s
manual for details.
Material Sufficient for Level Installation
• Dig a rectangular area approximately 5 in (127
mm) deep [A] and about 6 in (152 mm) longer and
wider [B] than the footprint of the generator. Fill
with 4 in (102 mm) of pea gravel [C], crushed stone
or any other non-combustible material sufficient for
level installation. Compact and level the material. A
concrete pad can be poured if desired or required.
The pad should be 4-5 in (102-127 mm) thick and
extend 6 in (152 mm) beyond the outside of the
generator in all directions.
DANGER
Automatic start-up. Disconnect utility power and
render unit inoperable before working on unit.
Failure to do so will result in death or serious injury.
(000191)
B
DANGER
Asphyxiation. Running engines produce
carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless,
poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide, if not
avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
(000103)
If the generator is not set to the OFF mode, it 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.

NOTE: If a concrete pad is required, follow all applicable
Federal, State or local codes.
Site Preparation
• Locate the mounting area as close as possible to
the transfer switch and fuel supply.
• Leave adequate room around the area for service
access (check local code), and place high enough
to keep rising water from reaching the generator.
• Choose an open space that will provide adequate
and unobstructed airflow.
• Place the unit so air vents won’t become clogged
with leaves, grass, snow or debris. Make sure
exhaust fumes will not enter the building through
eaves, windows, ventilation fans or other air
intakes (see Site Selection ).

Transportation Recommendations
Use a two wheeled hand cart or metal rails to carry the
generator (including the wooden pallet) to the installation
site. Place cardboard between the hand cart and the
generator to prevent any damage or scratches to the
generator.
• Select the type of base, such as but not limited to
gravel or concrete, as desired or as required by
local laws or codes. Verify your local requirements
before selecting.

Generator Placement
Fascia Installation (If Applicable)
All air-cooled generators come with a composite pad.
The composite pad elevates the generator and helps
prevent water from pooling around the bottom of the
generator (Figure 4-1). The generator and composite
pad can be placed on 4 in (102 mm) of pea gravel that is
compacted or on a concrete pad. Check local codes to
see what type of site base is required. If a concrete pad is
required, all federal, state and local codes should be
followed. Place the generator on its mounting pad and
position correctly as per the dimensional information
given in Site Preparation .
• Locate the four (4) threaded black rubber bumpers
located in the Owner’s manual bag.
• Remove the four (4) bumpers from the bag and
screw them into threaded holes located inside the
end pieces of the fascia (two each) opposite one
another (A).
• Once the bumpers are installed, snap one of the
end pieces into one of the front / rear pieces of
fascia. Repeat this action with the other two
remaining pieces of fascia.
NOTE: Do not assemble all four pieces together at this
point (B).
NOTE: Generator must be level within 0.5 in (13 mm).
• Place both assemblies at the base of the generator
and fit the rubber bumpers into the lifting holes in
the generator base (C).
• Once aligned, snap together the two remaining
connection points.
NOTE: If the composite pad is removed for concrete
mounting, the fascia kit will not fit.

(000192)
NOTE: Natural gas is lighter than air and will collect in
high areas. LP gas is heavier than air and will settle in
low areas.
LP gas should only use a vapor withdrawal system. This
type of system uses the vapors formed above the liquid
fuel in the storage tank.
The unit will run on natural gas or LP gas, but has been
configured at the factory to run on natural gas.
NOTE: Should the primary fuel need to be changed to
LP gas, the fuel system needs to be reconfigured. See
the Fuel Conversion section for instructions on
converting the fuel system.
Recommended fuels should have a BTU content of at
least 1,000 BTU/ft3 (37.26 MJ/m3) for natural gas; or at
least 2,500 BTU/ft3 (93.15 MJ/m3) for LP gas.
Always consult local fuel suppliers or the fire marshal to
check codes and regulations for proper installation. Local
codes will mandate correct routing of gaseous fuel line
piping around gardens, shrubs, and other landscaping.
Piping strength and connections should be given special
consideration when installation takes place in areas at
risk for; flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes,
and unstable ground.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Use an approved pipe sealant or
joint compound on all threaded fittings.
NOTE: All installed gaseous fuel piping must be purged
and leak tested prior to initial start-up in accordance with
local codes, standards and regulations.
Fuel Conversion
Converting from natural gas configuration to LP vapor
can be accomplished with the following procedure. See
Figure 5-1 for fuel conversion knob locations.
NOTE: BTU fuel content information is available from the
fuel supplier.
NOTE: The fuel selection (LP/NG) must be updated, on
the controller, during initial power up using the
Installation Wizard in the navigation menu.
Required fuel pressure for natural gas is 3.5-7 inches
water column (7-13 mm mercury). Required fuel pressure
for liquid propane vapor is 10-12 inH2O (19-22 mmHG).
NOTE: The orange fuel conversion knob (A) is located
on the top of the fuel mixer on V-twin engines (B) and
under the fuel mixer on single cylinder engines (C).
NOTE: The primary regulator for the propane supply is
NOT INCLUDED with the generator.
To select the fuel type, turn the valve towards the marked
fuel source arrow until it stops. Fuel knob will rotate 180°
and slide into the mixer body when converting to LP.
NOTE: All pipe sizing, construction and layout must
comply with NFPA 54 for natural gas applications and

*** Values given are approximate
These are approximate values. Use the appropriate spec sheet or owner’s manual for specific values.
Verify that gas meter is capable of providing enough fuel flow to include household appliances and all other loads.
NOTE: The gas supply and pipe MUST be sized at 100% load BTU / Megajoule rating.
Always refer to the Owner’s Manual for the proper BTU, Megajoule and required gas pressures:
– Natural Gas:
BTU = ft3/h x 1000
Megajoules = m3/h x 37.26
– Liquid Propane Vapor:
BTU = ft3/h x 2500
Megajoules = m3/h / hour x 93.15
Fuel Line Sizing
Selecting the correct size fuel line is crucial to the proper
operation of the unit. The generator inlet size has no
bearing on the size gas pipe to be used.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The generator should be plumbed
directly from the source, not off the end of an existing
system.
For further information refer to NFPA 54 for NG or NFPA
58 for LP.
NOTE: When measuring the pipe length, add 2.5 ft (0.76
m) for every angle or bend in the pipe to the overall
required length of pipe needed.
Measure the distance from the generator to the gas
source.

• 3/4” ball valve, part number 0K8754
regulator (see Figure 5-4) and install the gas
pressure tester (manometer).
Flexible Fuel Line
When connecting the gas line to the generator, use a
hose assembly that meets the requirements of ANSI
Z21.75/ CSA 6.27 - Connectors for outdoor Gas
Appliances and Manufactured Homes or AGA-approved
flexible fuel line in accordance with local regulations.
The purpose of flexible fuel line is to isolate vibration from
the generator to reduce possibility of a gas leak at one of
the connection points. It is important the line be installed
with as few bends as possible. The flex fuel line should
be horizontal and plumbed parallel to the back of the
generator. See B in Figure 5-3.
• Open the gas supply valve and verify the pressure
is within the specified values.
NOTE: Gas pressure can also be tested at the
manometer port on the fuel shut-off valve shown in
Figure 5-3.
NOTE: See owner’s manual or spec sheet for proper fuel
pressure specifications. If the gas pressure is not within
specifications, contact the local gas supplier.
3.
Close gas valve when completed.
CAUTION
Equipment damage. Do not bend flexible fuel line.
Bends in fuel line restrict fuel flow and reduce
ability to absorb vibration.

the installation process, the controller will light up.
However, the generator still needs to be activated before
it will automatically run in the event of a power outage.
Installation Guidelines For 60 Hz Air-cooled Generators
Cold Smart Start
The Cold Smart Start feature can be enabled in the EDIT
menu. When enabled, the generator will monitor ambient
temperature and adjust its warm-up delay based on
temperature. If the ambient temperature conditions are
below 50 ºF upon startup in AUTO mode, the generator
will warm up for 30 seconds allowing the engine to warm
25
Section 7: Control Panel/Start-up/Testing
before the load is applied. If the temperature is at or
above 50 ºF, the generator will startup with the normal
warm-up delay of 6 seconds.
• Exercise frequency (how often the exercise will
take place): It can be set to WEEKLY, BIWEEKLY
or MONTHLY. If MONTHLY is selected, the day of
the month must be selected from 1-28. The
generator will exercise on that day each month.
Transfer of loads to the generator output does not
occur during the exercise cycle unless utility power
is lost.
Setting The Exercise Timer
This generator is equipped with a configurable exercise
timer. There are two settings for the exercise timer.
• Day/Time: Once set, the generator will start and
exercise for the period defined, on the day of the
week and at the time of day specified. During this
exercise period, the unit runs for approximately 5
or 12 minutes, depending on the model, (see
Table 7-1) and then shuts down.
NOTE: If the installer tests the generator prior to
installation, press the “enter” button to skip setting up the
exercise timer.
