ASSEMBLY
Your generator requires some assembly. This unit ships
from our factory without oil. It must be properly serviced
with fuel and oil before operation.
If you have any questions regarding the assembly of your
generator, call our help line at 1-877-338-0999. Please
have your serial number and model number available.
Add Oil Cont’d.
NOTE
Once oil has been added, a visual check should show oil
about 1-2 threads from running out of the fill hole.
If using the dipstick to check oil level, DO NOT screw in
the dipstick while checking.
Remove the Generator from the Shipping Carton
1. Set the shipping carton on a solid, flat surface.
2. Remove everything from the carton except the generator.
3. Carefully cut each corner of the box from top to
bottom. Fold each side flat on the ground to provide a
surface area to install the wheel kit and support leg.
Add Engine Oil
CAUTION
DO NOT attempt to crank or start the engine before it
has been properly filled with the recommended type and
amount of oil. Damage to the generator as a result of
failure to follow these instructions will void your warranty.
NOTE
The generator rotor has a sealed, pre-lubricated ball
bearing that requires no additional lubrication for the life
of the bearing.
NOTE
The recommended oil type is 10W-30 automotive oil.
CAUTION
The engine is equipped with a low oil shut-off and will
stop when the oil level in the crankcase falls below the
threshold level.
NOTE
We consider the first 5 hours of run time to be the breakin period for the unit. During the break in period stay at
or below 50% of the running watt rating and vary the
load occasionally to allow stator windings to heat and
cool. Adjusting the load will also cause engine speed to
vary and help seat piston rings. After the 5 hour break-in
period, change the oil.
Degrees Celsiusº (Outside)
1. Place the generator on a flat, level surface.
Full Synthetic 5W-30
Degrees Fahrenheitº (Outside)
2. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick to add oil.
3. Add up to 0.6 qt. (0.6 L) of oil (not included) and
replace oil fill cap/dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL.
4. Check engine oil level daily and add as needed.
NOTE
Check oil often during the break-in period. Refer to the
Maintenance section for recommended service intervals.
7
NOTE
Weather will affect engine oil and engine performance.
Change the type of engine oil used based on weather
conditions to suit the engine needs.
NOTE
Synthetic oil may be used after the 5 hour initial breakin period. Using synthetic oil does not increase the
recommended oil change interval.
100104 ENGLISH
Add Fuel
1. Use clean, fresh, regular unleaded fuel with a
minimum octane rating of 85 and an ethanol content
of less than 10% by volume.
2. DO NOT mix oil with fuel.
3. Clean the area around the fuel cap.
4. Remove the fuel cap.
5. Slowly add fuel to the tank. DO NOT OVERFILL. Fuel
can expand after filling. A minimum of 6.4 mm (¼ in.)
of space left in the tank is required for fuel expansion,
more than 6.4 mm (¼ in.) is recommended. Fuel can
be forced out of the tank as a result of expansion if it is
overfilled, and can affect the stable running condition of
the product. When filling the tank, it is recommended
to leave enough space for the fuel to expand.
ASSEMBLY
Add Fuel Cont’d.
NOTE
Our engines work well with 10% or less ethanol
blend fuels. When using blended fuels there are
some issues worth noting:
– Ethanol-gasoline blends can absorb more water
than gasoline alone.
– These blends can eventually separate, leaving
water or a watery goo in the tank, fuel valve and
carburetor.
– With gravity-fed fuel supplies, this compromised
fuel can be drawn into the carburetor and cause
damage to the engine and/or potential hazards.
– There are only a few suppliers of fuel stabilizer
that are formulated to work with ethanol blend
fuels.
– Any damages or hazards caused by using
improper fuel, improperly stored fuel, and/
or improperly formulated stabilizers, are not
covered by manufacture’s warranty.
It is advisable to always shut off the fuel supply,
run the engine to fuel starvation and drain the tank
when the equipment is not in use for more than 30
days.
6. Screw on the fuel cap and wipe away any spilled fuel.
CAUTION
Use regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum
octane rating of 85.
Do not mix oil and gasoline.
Fill tank to approximately 6.4 mm (¼ in.) below the
top of the tank to allow for fuel expansion.
DO NOT pump gas directly into the generator at the
gas station. Use an approved container to transfer
the fuel to the generator.
DO NOT fill fuel tank indoors.
DO NOT fill fuel tank when the engine is running or hot.
DO NOT overfill the fuel tank.
DO NOT light cigarettes or smoke when filling the
fuel tank.
Grounding
Your generator must be properly connected to an
appropriate ground to help prevent electric shock.
WARNING
Failure to properly ground the generator can result in
electric shock.
A ground terminal connected to the frame of the generator
has been provided on the power panel. For remote
grounding, connect of a length of heavy gauge (12 AWG
minimum) copper wire between the generator ground
terminal and a copper rod driven into the ground. We
strongly recommend that you consult with a qualified
electrician to ensure compliance with local electrical codes.
WARNING
Pouring fuel too fast through the fuel screen may
result in blow back of fuel at the operator while filling.

ENGLISH 100104
OPERATION
Generator Location
Grounding
NEVER operate the generator inside any building,
including garages, basements, crawlspaces and sheds,
enclosure or compartment, including the generator
compartment of a recreational vehicle. Please consult
your local authority. In some areas, generators must
be registered with the local utility. Generators used at
construction sites may be subject to additional rules and
regulations. Generators should be on a flat, level surface
at all times. (Even while not in operation) Generators
must have at least 5 ft. (1.5 m) of clearance from all
combustible material. In addition to clearance from
all combustible material, generators must also have
at least 3 ft. (91.4 cm) of clearance on all sides to
allow for adequate cooling, maintenance and servicing.
The generator system ground connects the frame to the
ground terminals on the power panel.
– The generator (stator winding) is isolated from the
frame and from the AC receptacle ground pin.
– Electrical devices that require a grounded receptacle
pin connection will not function if the receptacle ground
pin is not functional.
Generators should never be started or operated in the
back of a SUV, camper, trailer, in the bed of a truck
(regular, flat or otherwise), under staircases/stairwells,
next to walls or buildings, or in any other location that
will not allow for adequate cooling of the generator
and/or the muffler. DO NOT contain generators during
operation. Allow generators to properly cool before
transport or storage.
Place the generator in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT
place the generator near vents or intakes where exhaust
fumes could be drawn into occupied or confined
spaces. Carefully consider wind and air currents when
positioning generator.
Failure to follow proper safety precautions may void
manufacturer’s warranty.
WARNING
Do not operate or store the generator in rain, snow,
or wet weather.
Using a generator or electrical appliance in wet
conditions, such as rain or snow, or near a pool or
sprinkler system, or when your hands are wet, could
result in electrocution.
WARNING
During operation the muffler and exhaust fumes
produced will become hot. If adequate cooling and
breathing space are not supplied, or if the generator
is blocked or contained, temperatures can become
extremely heated and may lead to fire.

Surge Protection
CAUTION
Voltage fluctuation may impair the proper
functioning of sensitive electronic equipment.
Electronic devices, including computers and many
programmable appliances use components that are
designed to operate within a narrow voltage range and
may be affected by momentary voltage fluctuations.
While there is no way to prevent voltage fluctuations, you
can take steps to protect sensitive electronic equipment.
1. Install UL1449, CSA-listed, plug-in surge suppressors
on the outlets feeding your sensitive equipment.
Surge suppressors come in single- or multi-outlet
styles. They’re designed to protect against virtually
all short-duration voltage fluctuations.
100104 ENGLISH
OPERATION
Starting the Engine
Connecting Electrical Loads
1. Make certain the generator is on a flat, level surface.
2. Disconnect all electrical loads from the generator.
Never start or stop the generator with electrical
devices plugged in or turned on.
3. Turn the fuel valve to the “ON” position.
4. Flip the engine switch to the “ON” position.
5. Move the choke lever to the “CHOKE” position.
6. RECOIL START: Pull the starter cord slowly until
resistance is felt and then pull rapidly
7. Do not over-choke. As soon as engine starts, move the
choke lever to the “RUN” position.
1. Let the engine stabilize and warm up for a few
minutes after starting
2. Plug in and turn on the desired 120 Volt AC single
phase, 60 Hz electrical loads.
– DO NOT connect 3-phase loads to the generator.
– DO NOT connect 50 Hz loads to the generator.
– DO NOT overload the generator.
NOTE
Keep choke lever in “Choke” position for only 1
pull of the recoil starter. After first pull, move choke
lever to the “Run” position for up to the next 3
pulls of the recoil starter. Too much choke leads to
sparkplug fouling/engine flooding due to the lack of
incoming air. This will cause the engine not to start.
NOTE
If the engine starts but does not run make certain
that the generator is on a flat, level surface. The
engine is equipped with a low oil sensor that will
prevent the engine from running when the oil level
falls below a critical threshold.
NOTE
Connecting a generator to your electric utility
company’s power lines or to another power source
may be against the law. In addition this action,
if done incorrectly, could damage your generator
and appliances and could cause serious injury or
even death to you or a utility worker who may be
working on nearby power lines. If you plan to run a
portable electric generator during an outage, please
notify your electric utility company immediately
and remember to plug your appliances directly
into the generator. Do not plug the generator into
any electric outlet in your home. Doing so could
create a connection to the utility company power
lines. You are responsible for ensuring that your
generator’s electricity does not feed back into the
electric utility power lines.
If the generator will be connected to a building
electrical system, consult your local utility company
or a qualified electrician. Connections must isolate
generator power from utility power and must comply
with all applicable laws and codes.

OPERATION
Stopping the Engine
Do Not Overload Generator
1. Turn off and unplug all electrical loads. Never start
or stop the generator with electrical devices plugged
in or turned on.
2. Let the generator run at no-load for several minutes
to stabilize internal temperatures of the engine and
generator.
3. Turn the fuel valve to the “OFF” position.
4. Let the engine run until fuel starvation has stopped
the engine. This usually takes a few minutes.
5. Press the engine switch to the “OFF” position.
Important: Always ensure that the Fuel Valve and the
Engine Switch are in the “OFF” position when the
engine is not in use.
Capacity
NOTE
If the engine will not be used for a period of two (2)
weeks or longer, please see the storage section for
proper engine and fuel storage.
Follow these simple steps to calculate the running and
starting watts necessary for your purposes.
1. Select the electrical devices you plan on running at
the same time.
2. Total the running watts of these items. This is
the amount of power you need to keep your items
running.
3. Identify the highest starting wattage of all devices
identified in step 1. Add this number to the number
calculated in step 2. Surge wattage is the extra
burst of power needed to start some electric driven
equipment. Following the steps listed under “Power
Management” will guarantee that only one device will
be starting at a time.
Power Management
Use the following formula to convert voltage and
amperage to watts:
Volts x Amps = Watts
To prolong the life of your generator and attached
devices, follow these steps to add electrical load:
1. Start the generator with no electrical load attached
2. Allow the engine to run for several minutes to
stabilize.
3. Plug in and turn on the first item. It is best to attach
the item with the largest load first.
4. Allow the engine to stabilize.

Generator Maintenance
Make certain that the generator is kept clean and stored
properly. Only operate the unit on a flat, level surface in
a clean, dry operating environment. DO NOT expose the
unit to extreme conditions, excessive dust, dirt, moisture
or corrosive vapors.
CAUTION
DO NOT use a garden hose to clean the generator.
Water can enter the generator through the cooling
slots and damage the generator windings.
Use a damp cloth to clean exterior surfaces of the generator.
Use a soft bristle brush to remove dirt and oil.
Use an air compressor (25 PSI) to clear dirt and debris
from the generator.
Inspect all air vents and cooling slots to ensure that they
are clean and unobstructed.
Storage
The generator should be started at least once every 14
days and allowed to run for at least 20 minutes. For
longer term storage, please follow these guidelines.
Generator Storage
1. Add a properly formulated fuel stabilizer to the tank.
2. Be sure all appliances are disconnected from the
generator.
3. Run the generator for a few minutes so the treated
fuel cycles through the fuel system and carburetor.
4. Turn the fuel valve to the “Off” position.
5. Let the generator run until fuel starvation has
stopped the engine. This usually takes a few minutes.
6. The generator needs to cool completely before

8. Change the oil.
9. Remove the spark plug and pour about 1⁄2 ounce
(14.8 mL) of oil into the cylinder. Crank the engine
slowly to distribute the oil and lubricate the cylinder.
MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE
Generator Storage Cont’d.
NOTE
Our engines work well with 10% or less ethanol
blend fuels. When using blended fuels there are
some issues worth noting:
– Ethanol-gasoline blends can absorb more water
than gasoline alone.
– These blends can eventually separate, leaving
water or a watery goo in the tank, fuel valve and
carburetor.
– With gravity-fed fuel supplies, this compromised
fuel can be drawn into the carburetor and cause
damage to the engine and/or potential hazards.
– There are only a few suppliers of fuel stabilizer
that are formulated to work with ethanol blend
fuels.
– Any damages or hazards caused by using
improper fuel, improperly stored fuel, and/
or improperly formulated stabilizers, are not
covered by manufacture’s warranty.
It is advisable to always shut off the fuel supply,
run the engine to fuel starvation and drain the tank
when the equipment is not in use for more than 30
days.
DANGER
Generator exhaust contains odorless and colorless
carbon monoxide gas.
To avoid accidental or unintended ignition of your
generator during periods of storage, the following
precautions should be followed:
– When storing the generator for short or extended
periods of time make sure that the Engine
Switch and the Fuel Valve are set in the OFF
position.
10. Reattach the spark plug.
11. Store the unit in a clean, dry place out of direct
sunlight.

*Except as otherwise stipulated in any of the following enclosed Emission Control System Warranties (when applicable) for the Emission Control System: U.S.
Environment Protection Agency (EPA), California Air Resources Board (CARB) and/or Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC).
Champion Power Equipment, Inc (CPE) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC)
Emission Control System Warranty
Your Champion Power Equipment (CPE) engine complies with Environment and Climate Change Canada
(ECCC) emission regulations.
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS:
CPE is pleased to explain the Emission Control Systems Warranty on your 2016 small off-road engine.
New engines must be designed, built and equipped, at the time of sale, to meet ECCC regulations for
small non-road engines. CPE must warrant the emission control system on your small off-road engine for
the period of time listed below, provided there has been no abuse, neglect, unapproved modification, or
improper maintenance of your small off-road engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel-injection system, the ignition
system, catalytic converter and fuel lines. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other
emission related assemblies. Where a warrantable condition exits, CPE will repair your small off-road
engine at no cost to you including diagnosis, parts and labour.
MANUFACTURER’S EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY COVERAGE:
This emission control system is warranted for two years, subject to provisions set forth below. If, during
the warranty period, emission related part on your engine is defective in materials or workmanship, the
part will be repaired or replaced by CPE.
OWNER WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance
listed in your Owner’s Manual. CPE recommends that you retain all your receipts covering maintenance
on your small off-road engine, but CPE cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your
failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should however be aware that CPE may deny you
warranty coverage if your small, off-road engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect,
improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to an Authorized CPE service outlet, CPE
dealer or CPE, Santa Fe Springs, CA., USA as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be
completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact:

EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY
The following are specific provisions relative to your Emission Control System Warranty
Coverage.
Emission Control System Warranty (ECS Warranty):
1. APPLICABILITY: The ECS Warranty Period shall begin on the date the new engine or equipment is
delivered to its original, end-use purchaser, and shall continue for 24 consecutive months thereafter.
2. GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE
CPE warrants to the original, end-use purchaser of the new engine or equipment and to each subsequent
purchaser that each of its small off-road engines is:
a. Designed, built and equipped so as to conform at the time of sale with applicable regulations
under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).
b. Free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted part to be
identical in all material respects to the part as described in the engine manufacturer’s application for
certification for a period of two years.
3. THE WARRANTY ON EMISSION-RELATED PARTS WILL BE INTERPRETED AS
FOLLOWS:
a. Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the
Owners 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 CPE according to Subsection “d” below. Any such
part repaired or replaced under the ECS Warranty shall be warranted for any remainder of the ECS
Warranty Period.
b. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is scheduled only for regular inspection as
specified in the Owners 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.
c. Any warranted, emissions-related part which 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 CPE according to Subsection “d” 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.
d. Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissions-related part under this ECS Warranty shall
be performed at no charge to the owner at a CPE Authorized Service Outlet.
e. The owner shall not be charged for diagnostic labour which leads to the determination that a
part covered by the ECS Warranty is in fact defective, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at
a CPE Authorized Service Outlet.
f. CPE shall be liable for damages to other original engine components or approved modifications
proximately caused by a failure under warranty of an emission-related part covered by the ECS Warranty.
g. Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, CPE shall maintain a supply of warranted emissionrelated parts sufficient to meet the expected demand for such emission-related parts.
h. Any CPE Authorized and approved emission-related replacement part may be used in the
performance of any ECS Warranty maintenance or repair and will be provided without charge to the
owner. Such use shall not reduce CPE’s warranty obligation.
i. Unapproved add-on or modified parts may not be used to modify or repair a CPE engine. Such
use voids this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient grounds for disallowing an ECS Warranty claim. CPE
shall not be liable hereunder for failures of any warranted parts of a
CPE engine caused by the use of such an unapproved add-on or modified part.
EMISSION-RELATED PARTS INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING: (using those portions of the list
applicable to the engine)
Systems covered by this warranty

TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE:

registration card or other proof of original purchase date, at your expense, to any Champion Power
Equipment dealer who is authorized by Champion Power Equipment, Inc. to sell and service that CPE
product during his normal business hours. Claims for repair or adjustment found to be caused solely by

and used.
