Caution Statements
Caution: The brass connecting tab on some 120VAC duplex receptacles have been removed. Each
receptacle is powered by a separate generator winding. When replacing a receptacle, inspect
the brass tab that normally links both receptacles. If it is removed, be sure to remove the
brass tab from the replacement receptacle before it is installed. Failure to remove the tab will
cause a direct short to the generator windings and cause possible generator damage.
Caution: Avoid installing the generator set beside heat generating equipment, or directly below water
or steam pipes or in the vicinity of corrosive substances or vapors, metal particles and dust.
Heat can cause engine problems to develop and unwanted substances can cause rust or
generator failure over time.
Caution: Do not apply high voltage to windings (start the generator) in a moisture−saturated condition.
Moisture can cause insulation breakdown, making it necessary to return the generator to the
factory for repair, and consequent expense and loss of time.
Caution: Use only original equipment or authorized replacement parts. Using the correct parts will
assure continued safe operation as designed.
Caution: Do not suspend the generator from the top handle during operation.
Caution: Do not tamper with or change the engine speed. Engine speed is factory set to produce the
correct voltage and output frequency.
Caution: Never operate the engine without a muffler and spark arrestor. The engine is designed to
have the correct exhaust components installed. Operating without these components can
present a fire hazard, cause excessive exhaust gases and cause damage to engine.
Caution: Operate the generator only on a level surface. Operation of the generator on an incline or
slope may degrade engine lubrication and result in engine failure.
Caution: Always fill fuel tank with clean fresh fuel before use. Never leave fuel in tank for long storage
periods. Old fuel becomes stale and can damage the fuel system causing the engine not to
start. Always drain the fuel tank after use before storage.
Caution: For electric start models, do not place the key switch in the start position when engine is
running. This causes the starting motor to engage and may damage the starter and engine.

Receiving & Installation 3-1
Physical Location
Your generator is portable to go where the work is. To be safe, several factors must be considered:
1. Keep extension cords as short as possible.
2. For effective cooling and maintenance, the generator should be mounted on a flat, smooth,
non-flammable level surface. A concrete pad is ideal and provides a secure installation.
3. The location for the generator must be dry. Never operate a generator in an area that
has standing water or puddles.
4. Prevent obstructions (buildup of leaves, grass, sand, snow, etc.). It is important that
the unit be operated in a reasonably clean environment.
5. All engines give off considerable heat when running. The engine in your generator set
uses air to keep it cool so it is important that the ambient temperature is cool. Where
natural ventilation is inadequate a fan to boost circulation should be used.
WARNING: Exhaust fumes/gases are extremely dangerous and can cause severe illness or death. Never
breath exhaust fumes produced by a running engine. Only run the engine outdoors where
ventilation is plentiful. Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless and
extremely dangerous gas that can cause unconsciousness or death. Symptoms of carbon
monoxide poisoning include: dizziness, nausea, headaches, sleepiness, vomiting or
incoherence. If you or anyone else experiences these symptoms, get out into fresh air
immediately. Stop the engine and do not restart the engine until it has been inspected and if
necessary repaired or reinstalled in a well ventilated area.
6.
Exhaust gases from internal combustion engines are extremely poisonous. Never
operate an engine indoors.
7. All electrical equipment should be protected from excessive moisture. Failure to do so
will result in deterioration of the insulation and may result in short circuits and a
possible electrocution hazard.
Installation
The generator is completely assembled, tested and adjusted at the factory before it is shipped to
you. External connections required at the time of installation are:
1. Electrical Connections.
2. Frame Ground Connection.
Electrical Connections All load connections are made at the front panel using electrical cords with the proper
mating plug for the receptacle being used. More than one receptacle can be used as long as the
total load does not exceed the continuous rating of the generator.
WARNING: Never connect this generator to any buildings electrical system unless a licensed electrician
has installed an approved transfer switch. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires that
connection of a generator to any electrical circuit normally powered by means of an electric
utility must be connected by means of approved transfer switch equipment so as to isolate
the electrical circuit from the utility distribution system when the generator is operating.
Failure to isolate the electrical circuits by such means may result in injury or death to utility
power workers due to backfeed of electrical energy onto the utility lines.
Use correct size insulated wire to connect the generator to the load. The gauge of the wire will
depend on the distance to the load, the permissible voltage drop at the load, and the current
required by the load. If you are not sure of the gauge wire needed for your application, consult a
competent electrician. Using wire that is too small can result in fire hazard. Also, be sure the
wire has the appropriate ratings for insulation and environment conditions. Use only U.L.
approved extension cords rated for outdoor use.
3-2 Receiving & Installation
MN2403
Frame Ground Connection
WARNING: Be sure the system is properly grounded before applying power. Do not apply AC power
before you ensure that grounds are connected. Electrical shock can cause serious or fatal
injury. NEC requires that the frame and exposed conductive surfaces (metal parts) be
connected to an approved earth ground. Local codes may also require proper grounding of
generator systems.
The NEC requires that the frame and exposed metal surfaces be at local ground reference
potential to avoid electrical shock hazard. A local ground reference may require a driven earth
ground conductor at the generator installation site. Make the ground connection as shown in
Figure 3-2. Use the appropriate size wire (normally 6 AWG) as required by NEC and local
codes. The local reference ground is normally a copper clad earth ground rod driven into the
earth at least 8 feet.
Figure 3-2 Frame Ground Connection
Engine Oil
The generator is shipped dry. This means no oil is in the engine crankcase and no fuel is in the
fuel tank. Refer to section 5 of this manual for lubricant and fuel requirements and obtain the
correct type and quantity of engine motor oil and fuel.
1.
2.
Refer to section 5 of this manual and add the required amount of engine oil.
Refer to section 5 of this manual and add the appropriate amount of fuel.
After installation, the post installation checks must be performed prior to starting the engine.
After these checks have been performed and the system operation is verified to be good, refer to
Section 5 Maintenance for periodic checks that must be performed at scheduled intervals to
ensure continued operation with minimal problems.

Receiving & Installation 3-3
Battery Connections The generator is shipped with no battery installed.
WARNING: Installation and servicing of batteries is to be performed or supervised by personnel
knowledgeable of batteries and the required precautions. Keep unauthorized personnel away
from batteries.
WARNING: Disconnect the battery’s ground terminal before working in the vicinity of the battery or
battery wires. Contact with the battery can result in electrical shock when a tool accidently
touches the positive battery terminal or wire. The risk of such shock is reduced when the
ground lead is removed during installation and maintenance.
WARNING: Do not mutilate the battery or dispose of a battery in a fire. The battery is capable of
exploding. If the battery explodes, electrolyte solution will be released in all directions.
Battery electrolyte solution is caustic and can cause severe burns and blindness. If
electrolyte contacts skin or eyes, immediately flush the area with water and seek medical
attention quickly.
WARNING: A battery presents a risk of electrical shock hazard and high short circuit current. Electrical
shock can cause serious or fatal injury. Never wear jewelry, watch or any metal objects when
in the area around the battery.
The following precautions are to be followed when working on batteries:
1. Remove watches, rings, necklaces and all other metal objects.
2. Use tools with insulated handles.
3. Wear rubber gloves and boots.
WARNING: The battery electrolyte is a dilute sulfuric acid that is harmful to the skin and eyes. It is
electrically conductive and corrosive. If electrolyte contacts the skin, flush the area
immediately with water and wash it off using soap and water. If electrolyte contacts the eyes,
immediately flush the eye thoroughly with water and seek medical attention quickly.
The following precautions are to be followed when working on batteries:
1. Wear full eye protection (safety glasses or goggles) and protective clothing.
2. Where electrolyte contacts the skin, flush the area immediately with water and wash it
off using soap and water.
3. Where electrolyte contacts the eyes, immediately flush the eye thoroughly with water
and seek medical attention quickly.
4. Spilled electrolyte is to be washed down with an acid neutralizing agent. A common
practice is to use a solution of one pound (500 grams) bicarbonate of soda to one
gallon (four liters) of water. The bicarbonate solution is to be added until evidence of
reaction (foaming) has ceased. The resulting liquid is to be flushed with water and the
area dried.
WARNING: A battery presents a risk of fire and explosion because they generate hydrogen gas.
Hydrogen gas is extremely explosive. Never jump start a battery, smoke in the area around
the battery or cause any spark to occur in the area around the battery.
The following precautions are to be followed when working on batteries:
1. Do not smoke when near batteries.
2. Do not cause flame or spark in battery area.
3. Discharge static electricity from body before touching batteries by first touching a
grounded metal surface.
WARNING: Disconnect the battery’s ground terminal before working in the vicinity of the battery or
battery wires. Contact with the battery can result in electrical shock when a tool accidently
touches the positive battery terminal or wire. The risk of such shock is reduced when the
ground lead is removed during installation and maintenance.
Procedure:
The correct type battery must be installed in the battery compartment provided, see Table 3-1.
Installation and servicing of batteries is to be performed or supervised by personnel
knowledgeable of batteries and the required precautions.
Keep unauthorized personnel away from batteries.

Use of Electric Motor Loads
Electric motors require much more current (amperes) to start them than to keep them running.
Some motors, particularly split−phase motors are very difficult to start and require 5 to 7 times
more current to start them. Repulsion−induction type motors are the easiest to start and normally
only require 2 to 3 times as much current to start them.
Most fractional horsepower motors take about the same amount of current to start them and
keep them running. This is true whether they are the repulsion−induction type motor, capacitor
type motor, or the split−phase type motor.
Other factors that influence the amount of current needed to start a motor are:
1. The type of load connected to the motor. If the electric motor is connected to a hard
starting load such as an air compressor it will require more starting current. If the same
electric motor is connected to a light load such as a heater or power saw it will require
less starting current.
2. The brand or design of the electric motor. The expected starting current for a
particular size motor will vary depending on the brand of the electric motor as well as
the type of electric motor (Split Phase, capacitor, Repulsion−induction type, etc.)
3. The condition of the electric motor. A clean motor with free turning bearings will
require less starting currents than a similar type motor that is dirty and the bearings are
not as free turning as they used to be.

Voltage Drop in Extension Cords
When a long electric extension cord is used to connect an appliance or tool to the generator, a
certain amount of voltage drop or loss occurs in the extension cord which reduces the effective
voltage available for the appliance or tool. Table 3-2 illustrates the approximate voltage loss
when an extension cord of 300 feet (approx. 100 meters) is used to connect an appliance or tool
to the generator.

WARNING: A battery presents a risk of fire because they generate hydrogen gas. Hydrogen gas is
extremely explosive. Never jump start a battery, smoke in the area around the battery or
cause any spark to occur in the area around the battery.
However several safety precautions must be followed:
S
When charging a large capacity battery or a totally discharged battery, excessive
current may trip the DC breaker. If this happens, use a battery charger to charge the
battery. The battery charger can be plugged into the generators AC output.
S
An explosive hydrogen gas is given off by the battery (through the batteries vent holes)
when it is charged. Do not allow a spark or open flame to be present during battery
charging. Always turn off the generator before disconnecting the battery leads from the
DC Output terminals to avoid a spark.
S
The battery contains electrolyte solution which is caustic and can cause severe burns
and blindness. If electrolyte contacts skin or eyes, immediately flush the area with
water and seek medical attention quickly. Never charge a battery that is low on water.
The following precautions are to be followed when working on batteries:
1. Wear full eye protection (safety glasses or goggles) and protective clothing.
2. Where electrolyte contacts the skin, flush the area immediately with water and wash it
off using soap and water.
3. Where electrolyte contacts the eyes, immediately flush the eye thoroughly with water

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
WARNING: Before cleaning, inspecting, repairing, refueling or performing any maintenance to the generator
set, always be sure the engine has stopped and that all rotating parts have also stopped. After
stopping, certain components are still extremely hot so be careful not to get burned.
WARNING: Before servicing the generator set, be sure to disconnect the spark plug wires to prevent
accidental engine rotation or starting.
Maintenance
The following are general maintenance recommendations. The engine must be stopped and all
electrical load devices removed from the generator plugs or terminals before any maintenance is
performed. The Maintenance Schedule is given in Table 5-1.
General Checks
1. Inspect the fuel system for leaks. Replace defective components immediately.
2. Inspect and replace any fuel line that shows signs of deterioration.
3. Inspect all fuel clamps to ensure they are tight and no leaks exist.
4. Make sure the fuel cap fits snugly on the fuel tank and that the fuel tank does not leak.
5. Inspect the condition of AC and DC terminals for damage and replace if damaged.
6. Test all GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) receptacles daily by pressing the test
button on the receptacle during operation. Ensure that the GFCI trips and and no

Lower Level
(SE or higher grade) SAE 10W−30 or SAE 10W−40 (Left side cover)
1. Remove oil filler cap and check the oil for contaminants (moisture or excessive dirt).
2. Change the oil if contaminated.
3. Clean the dip stick and fully insert it into oil and remove to check the oil level. Do not screw the filler cap in
when checking the oil level.
4. If oil is below lower level on dip stick, add oil to bring oil to the upper level. Check for oil leaks.
5. Install and tighten the oil filler cap.
Change Engine Oil (SE or higher grade) SAE 10W−30 or SAE 10W−40 (Left side cover)
1. If the engine is cold, start the engine and let it run for 1 minute. This will warm the oil to make it easier to
drain. If engine is hot, allow it to cool. Hot engine oil can cause severe burns. Always wear protective
clothing and eye protection when working on engine.
2. Drain oil by removing the drain plug and catch the used oil in a pan or tray. Remove the oil filler cap to let
oil flow out quicker. The generator is shown raised using lumber so the pan can slide under.
3. When oil is drained, install and tighten the drain plug.
4. Fill the crankcase with clean oil until the oil level reaches the upper level on the filler cap.
Oil capacity is: PC32Ri 0.63 quart (0.6 liters); PC43Ri 1.0 quart (1.0 liters).
5. Check for oil leaks.
Check Air Cleaner (Left side cover)
1. Unhook the air filter cover and remove the elements.
2. Clean the paper element by gently tapping the element to remove dirt and contaminants. Blow off dust
and remaining dirt from the element. Replace the element if torn or extremely dirty. Replace every 200
hours or once each year.
3. Wash the urethane element with fresh water. Squeeze (do not twist) the water out and let air dry.
4. Install the elements and hook the cover.

Keeping the generator clean is an important part of good operation. If dirt buildup is not
removed, the generator will run hotter than normal and it’s life is reduced. The following are
general guidelines for cleaning.
1. Clean the generator set and remove any and all dust, dirt, or other foreign material.
2. Inspect and clean the cooling air intake and exhaust louvers of the generator end.
Make sure they are clean. Remove dirt or any buildup that may restrict the cooling air
flow.
3. Clean the generator set and its components with a damp cloth or sponge.
Never use a water hose or pressure washer as this may damage electrical
components.
4. Inspect and replace any control panel components that are broken or not working
properly (receptacles, circuit breakers, switches, etc.)
5. Inspect and clean all governor and carburetor linkages so they operate properly.

5-2 Troubleshooting and Maintenance
MN2403
Voltage Variations This generator set must be run at its proper speed to obtain the correct electrical power at its
output. All engines have a tendency to slow down when a load is applied to it. The engine
governor is designed to hold the operating speed as nearly constant as possible. When the
electrical load is increased, the engine is more heavily loaded and engine speed drops slightly.
This slight decrease in engine speed results in a slight decrease in generator voltage and
frequency output. This voltage and frequency variation has no appreciable effect in the operation
of motors, lights, and most appliances and tools. However, timing devices and clocks will not
keep perfect time when used on this generator.
Reduced voltage to the load can also be caused by using the wrong extension cord. Small
diameter wire will have a voltage drop across the cord when current flows through the wire. This
voltage drop can be very significant over long cord lengths. Always use the proper wire size
(gauge wire size) for the extension cord to minimize the voltage drop at rated current draw.
Problems and Solutions
Some of the more common problems are listed in Table 5-2. This information is intended to be a
check or verification that simple causes can be located and fixed. It is not an exhaustive “how to”
for all types of problems.
