Using the Generator for the First Time
The following section describes steps necessary to prepare the generator for use. If after
reading this section, you are unsure about how to perform any of the steps please call (800)
232-1195 M-F 8-5 CST for customer service. Failure to perform these steps properly can
damage the generator or shorten its life.
Step 1 - Fill Oil
The generator is shipped without oil. User must add the proper amount of oil before operating the
generator for the first time. The oil capacity of the engine crankcase is 37 fluid oz.
Select good quality detergent oil bearing the American Petroleum Institute (API) service
classifications SJ, SL, or SM. (Synthetic oils may be used.) Use the SAE viscosity grade
9
of oil from the following chart that matches the starting temperature anticipated before
the next oil changes.
Figure 1- Engine oil recommendations
To fill oil to the crankcase, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the generator is on a level surface. Tilting the generator to assist in filling will
cause oil to flow into engine areas and will cause damage. Keep generator level!
2. Remove the oil filler/dipstick cap from the engine as shown in figure 2.
3. Using a funnel, add the appropriate type and amount of oil into the crankcase. The
crankcase is full when the oil level has reached the second thread from the lip of the
opening (see figure 3).
4. Check for oil leaks. Reinstall oil filler cap before starting engine.

Grounding codes can vary by location. Contact a local electrician for area codes.
16
USING THE GENERATOR
WARNING: When this generator is used to supply a building wiring system:
Generator must be installed by a qualified electrician and connected to a transfer switch
as a separately derived system in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70.
The generator shall be connected to a transfer switch that switches all conductors other than the
equipment grounding conductor. The frame of the generator shall be connected to an approved
grounding electrode.
For power outages, permanently installed stationary generators are better suited for providing
backup power to the home. Even a properly connected portable generator can become overloaded.
This may result in overheating or stressing the generator components, possibly leading to a
generator failure.
Before connecting electrical devices, allow the generator to run for a few minutes to stabilize the
speed and voltage output.
CAUTION: Become familiar with the markings on the panel before connecting electrical devices.
Connect electrical devices running on AC current according to their wattage requirements. The
chart in figure 9 shows the running and starting wattage of your generator according to its model
number.
NOTE: Although the overall running wattage of the machine is 5000 Watts, it is not recommended
that you attempt to draw more than 2400 Watts (20 A) from any ONE of the 120 Volt receptacles.
The running wattage corresponds to the maximum wattage the generator can output on a
continuous basis.
The starting wattage corresponds to the maximum amount of power the generator can output for a
short period of time. Many electrical devices such as refrigerators require short bursts of extra
power, in addition to the running wattage listed by the device, to stop and start their motors. The
starting wattage ability of the generator covers this extra power requirement.
Model Number Rated(Running) Wattage
6800E
5500
Starting Watt
6800
Figure 9- generator wattage.
The total running wattage requirement of the electrical devices connected to the generator should
not exceed the running wattage of the generator itself. To calculate the total wattage requirement
of the electrical devices you wish to connect, find the rated (or running) wattage of each device.
This number should be listed somewhere on the device or in its instruction manual. If you cannot
find this wattage, you may calculate it by multiplying the Voltage requirement by the Amperage
drawn:
Watts= Volts x Amperes
If these specifications are not available, you may estimate the Watts required by your device using
the chart in figure 10.
17
When the running wattage requirement of each electrical device has been determined, add these
numbers to find the total running wattage needed. If this number exceeds the running wattage of
the generator, DO NOT connect all these devices. Select a combination of electrical devices,
which has a total running wattage lower than or equal to the running wattage of the generator.
CAUTION: The generator can run at its starting wattage capacity for only a short time.
Connect electrical devices requiring a rated (running) wattage equal to or less than the
running wattage of the generator. Never connect devices requiring a running wattage equal
to the surge wattage of the generator. This can trip the circuit protectors (circuit breakers).

NOTE: The above wattage figures are estimates. Try to check the wattage listed on your electrical
device before consulting this chart.
Figure 10- Estimated wattage requirements of common electrical devices.
Once you have determined what electrical devices you will be powering with the generator,
connect these devices according to the following procedure:
1. Plug in each electrical device with the device turned off. NOTE: Be sure to attach
appliances to the correct receptacles (outlets). Connect standard 120 Volt, single phase,
60 Hz loads only to the 120 Volt receptacles. Connect 120/240 Volt, single phase, 60Hz
loads with a NEMA L14-30 plug only to the 120/240 Volt receptacle See Figure 11 for a
depiction of each of these receptacles.
18
2. Push in the circuit reset buttons to the “ON” position (NOTE: They may be pushed in
already).
CAUTION: Do not connect 50Hz or 3-phase loads to the generator.

Figure 11- Receptacles available on the generator
CIRCUIT RESET BUTTONS
The circuit reset buttons help to prevent the generator from electrical overload. If your receptacle
short circuits or becomes overloaded by an electrical device or devices with too great a wattage
rating, the circuit protector may shut off power to the receptacle. In the event of such an overload,
disconnect all electrical devices from the generator and press the circuit reset buttons. If power
still does not return to the receptacle, call our customer service line.
SOME NOTES ABOUT POWER CORDS
Long or thin cords can drain the power provided to an electrical device by the generator. When
using such cords, allow for a slightly higher running wattage requirement by the electrical device.
See Figure 12 for recommended cords based on the power requirement of the electrical device.

STOPPING THE GENERATOR
Procedure to Stop Generator
NOTE: Stopping the motor or unplugging cords from the generator while it is supplying power
to devices will possibly damage the voltage regulator and result in low or no power output until the
voltage regulator is replaced.
Following the stopping procedure will minimize the possibility of damaged voltage regulators.
1. Turn off all electrical devices being powered by generator prior to unplugging them from
the generator.
2. Turn the engine switch to the off position.
3. Turn the fuel valve to the off (horizontal) position.
Stopping when generator is to be stored for long period of time:
1. Turn off all electrical devices being powered by generator prior to unplugging them from
the generator.
2. Turn the fuel valve to the off (horizontal) position. Allow engine to run until it stops.
3. If generator will be stored for more than 60 days, remove all fuel from the tank. Fuel
removal is best accomplished by siphoning as much as is possible from the tank and then
remove the fuel hose from the fuel cock, turn on the fuel valve and drain the remaining fuel
from the tank.
4. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery for storage. After disconnecting the
cable, cover the free end with an insulator such as electrical tape.
WARNING: Allow the generator to cool for several minutes before touching
areas that become hot during use.
CAUTION: Allowing gasoline to sit in the generator tank for long periods of time without
use can make it difficult to start the generator in the future. Never store generator for
extended periods of time with fuel in the tank.
20
MAINTENANCE / CARE

Cleaning the Generator
Never clean the generator when it is running! Never clean with a bucket of water or a hose. Water
can get inside the working parts of the generator and cause a short circuit or corrosion.
Always try to use the generator in a cool, dry place. If the generator becomes dirty, clean the
exterior with a damp cloth, a soft brush, vacuum or pressurized air.
Checking the Oil
Check the oil level of the generator according to the Recommended Maintenance Schedule in
Figure 13. The generator is equipped with an automatic shutoff to protect it from running with low
oil pressure. The generator should be checked before each use for proper oil level. This is a
critical step for proper engine starting.
To check or add oil, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the generator is on a level surface. Clean around oil fill.
2. Remove the oil filler/dipstick cap and check oil level as shown in figure 14.
3. If oil level is below the second thread from the lip of the oil fill opening, slowly add oil
until the engine crankcase is filled.
4. Reinstall and tighten oil filler cap before starting the engine. .
21
Figure 14- Checking the oil
Changing/ Adding Oil
Change the oil according to the maintenance schedule in figure 13. Change the oil when the
engine is warm. This will allow for complete drainage. Change oil more often if operating under
heavy load or high ambient temperatures. It is also necessary to drain the oil from the crankcase if
it has become contaminated with water or dirt.
The oil capacity of the engine in this generator is 37 fluid oz. Add oil when the oil level is low.
Drain the oil from the generator according to the following steps:
1. Place a container underneath the engine to catch oil as it drains.
2. Using a 10 mm hex wrench, unscrew the oil drain plug (see figure 15). Allow all the oil to
drain from the engine.
3. Reinstall the oil drain plug and tighten with a 10 mm hex wrench.
To fill the crankcase with oil, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the generator is on a level surface. Tilting the generator to assist in filling will
cause oil to flow into engine areas and will cause damage. Keep generator level!
2. Remove the oil filler/dipstick cap from the engine as shown in figure 14 above.
3. Using a funnel, add the appropriate type and amount of oil into the crankcase. The
crankcase is full when the oil level has reached the second thread from the lip of the
opening (see figure 16).
4. Check for oil leaks. Reinstall oil filler cap before starting engine.
Figure 15- Draining oil
Figure 16- Adding oil
NOTE: Never dispose of used motor oil in the trash or down a drain. Please call your local
recycling center or auto garage to arrange oil disposal.
22
Air Cleaner Maintenance
Routine maintenance of the air cleaner helps maintain proper air flow to the carburetor. Check that
the air cleaner is free of excessive dirt.
1.

3.
4.
5.
Unscrew the four bolts at the top and bottom of the air cleaner cover (see figure 17).
Remove the sponge-like elements from the cover.
Wipe the dirt from inside the empty air cleaner cover.
Wash the sponge-like elements in household detergent and warm water. Allow to dry.
Reinstall the sponge-like elements in the air cleaner casing and reinstall the cover.

Figure 17- Air cleaner maintenance.
Fuel Filter Cup Cleaning
The fuel filter cup is a small well underneath the fuel valve. It helps to trap dirt and water that may
be in the fuel tank before it can enter the engine. To clean the fuel filter cup:
1. Turn the fuel valve to the “off” position.
2. Unscrew the fuel filter cup from the fuel valve using a wrench. Turn the valve toward you
to unscrew (see figure 18).
3. Clean the cup of all sediment using a rag or brush.
4. Reinstall the fuel filter cup.

Spark Plug Maintenance
The spark plug is important for proper engine operation. A good spark plug should be intact, free
of deposits, and properly gapped. To inspect the spark plug:
1. Pull on the spark plug cap to remove it.
2. Unscrew the spark plug from the generator using the spark plug wrench included with this
product (see figure 19).
3. Visually inspect the spark plug. If it is cracked or chipped, discard and replace with a new
spark plug.
4. Measure the plug gap with a gauge (see figure 20). The gap should be 0.7-0.8mm (0.0280.031in).
5. If you are re-using the spark plug, use a wire brush to clean any dirt from around the spark
plug base and then re-gap the spark plug.
6. Screw the spark plug back into its place on the generator using the spark plug wrench. Do
not over-tighten spark plug. Recommended tightening of spark plug is ½ to ¾ of a turn
after spark plug gasket contacts spark plug hole. Reinstall the spark plug cap.

Draining the Fuel Tank
Clean fuel tank each year or before storing the generator for extended periods of time. To drain the
fuel tank and carburetor:
1. Turn the fuel valve to the “OFF” position.
2. Remove the fuel line between the fuel valve and carburetor. Caution: a small amount of
fuel may leak from the hose during removal.
3. Attach a fuel line (not included with the generator) to exposed end of the fuel valve.
4. Position fuel line into an appropriate container and open the valve allowing fuel to flow
into the container.
5. Once fuel is drained, shut off the fuel valve.
6. Start and run the engine until fuel runs out.
7. Remove the fuel filter cup (see “Fuel Filter Cup Cleaning” earlier in this section).
8. Empty the fuel filter cup of any fuel and clean
9. Reinstall the fuel filter cup.
10. Store the emptied gasoline in a suitable place.
CAUTION: Do not store fuel for more than 3 months.
24
Changing the Battery
WARNING: Battery gives off explosive hydrogen gas
• Keep battery away from spark, flame, or cigarette.
• Do not connect or disconnect battery while generator is running.
• Service or use battery only in well ventilated areas.
WARNING: Battery contains sulfuric acid. Battery acid is poisonous. Tilting the
generator with the battery installed can cause battery acid to spill.
• Wear protective clothing and eyewear when servicing battery.
• Keep out of reach of children.
• Do not tilt generator with battery installed.
If your generator will start manually (using the recoil starter pull cord) but will not start electrically
(with the key), the battery may be drained. In this case, you can recharge the battery by starting
the generator manually and allowing it to run for 20 minutes. However, if your battery will no
longer hold a charge, you may need to replace it. To replace the battery:
1. Disconnect the positive (+) and negative (-) cables from the battery.
2. Remove the metal bracket that secures the battery to the generator.
3. Install the replacement battery and secure to the generator with the bracket. Use a 12V
battery that is 11 Ah or greater.
Connect the positive and negative cables to the new battery.
STORAGE / TRANSPORT PROCEDURES
CAUTION:
Never place any type of storage cover on the generator
while it is still hot.
If the generator is being stored for short periods of time (30 – 60 days), add stabilized fuel to the
fuel tank until full. NOTE: Filling the tank reduces the amount of air in the tank and helps reduce
deterioration of fuel. Run the engine for 2 – 3 minutes allowing stabilized fuel mixture to
circulate through the carburetor.
When transporting or storing the generator for extended periods of time:
•
•
•
•
Drain the fuel tank (see “Draining the Fuel Tank” in the “Maintenance” section).
Disconnect the spark plug cap from the spark plug.
Do not obstruct any ventilation openings.
Keep the generator in a cool dry area.
