GENERATOR USE
CONNECTIONS TO A BUILDING'S ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Connections for standby power to a building's electrical system must be
made by a qualified electrician. The connection must isolate the generator
power from utility power, and must comply with all applicable laws and
electrical codes.
Improper connections to a building's electrical system
can allow electrical current from the generator to backfeed into the
utility lines. Such backfeed may electrocute utility company workers
or others who contact the lines during a power outage. Consult the
utility company or a qualified electrician.
! WARNING
Improper connections to a building's electrical system can
allow electrical current from the utility company to backfeed into the
generator. When utility power is restored, the generator may explode,
burn, or cause fires in the building's electrical system.
! CAUTION
In some areas, generators are required by law to be registered with local
utility companies. Check local regulations for proper registration and use
procedures.
GENERATOR GROUND CIRCUITS
AMICO portable generators have a system ground that connects generator
frame components to the ground terminals in the AC output receptacles.
The system ground is not connected to the AC neutral wire.
Local regulations, codes or laws may require that the ground system be
connected to the AC neutral wire. If the generator is tested by a receptacle
tester, it will not show the same ground circuit condition as for a home
receptacle.
If local regulations, codes, or laws require the system ground to be
connected to the AC neutral wire, consult a qualified electrician or electrical
inspector. Provide him with the electrical wiring diagram in this manual.
The ground terminal can be used to earth the generator or bond the frame
of the generator to the frame of a vehicle, but only if it is required by local
law or electrical code. Before using the ground terminal consult a qualified
electrician or electrical inspector for regulations in your area.
15
AC APPLICATIONS
Before connecting an appliance or power cord to the generator:
Make sure that it is in good working order. Faulty appliances or power
cords can create a potential for electrical shock.
If an appliance begins to operate abnormally, becomes sluggish or stops
suddenly, turn it off immediately. Disconnect the appliance, and
determine whether the problem is the appliance, or if the rated load
capacity of the generator has been exceeded.
Make sure that the electrical rating of the tool or appliance does not
exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating
of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum may be
used for no more than a few minutes.
NOTICE Substantial overloading will open the circuit breaker.
Exceeding the time limit for maximum power operation or slightly
overloading the generator may not switch the circuit breaker OFF, but
will shorten the service life of the generator.
Limit operation requiring maximum power to a few minutes.
Maximum power is referring to the following table.
For continuous operation, do not exceed the rated power.
Rated power is referring to the following table.

compound. These gasoline are collectively referred to as oxygenated fuels.
To meet clean air standards, some areas of the United States use
oxygenated fuels to help reduce emissions.
If you use an oxygenated fuel, be sure it is unleaded and meets the
minimum octane rating requirement.
Before using an oxygenated fuel, try to confirm the fuel's contents.
Some states/provinces require this information to be posted on the pump.
ETHANOL-
(ethyl or grain alcohol) 10% by volume
You may use gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by
volume. Gasoline containing ethanol may be marketed
under the mane "Gasohol".
MTBE-
