Operation
GROUNDING THE
GENERATOR
OPERATING THE
GENERATOR
CAUTION
The National Electrical Code requires that the frame and
external electrically conductive parts of this generator be
properly connected to an approved earth ground. Local
electrical codes may also require proper grounding of the
unit. For that purpose, a GROUNDING FASTENER is
provided on the generator end (Figure 2).
Exceeding generator’s wattage/amperage capacity can
damage generator and/or electrical devices connected
to it.
• See “Don’t Overload Generator” on page 13.
• Start generator and let engine stabilize before connecting
electrical loads.
• Connect electrical loads in OFF position, then turn ON for
operation.
• Turn electrical loads OFF and disconnect from generator
before stopping generator.
Figure 2 — Grounding Fastener
Starting the Engine
Disconnect all electrical loads from the generator. Use the
following start instruction steps by numerical order:
Grounding
Fastener
1.
Make sure unit is on a level surface.
IMPORTANT: Failure to start and operate unit on a level
surface will cause the unit not to start or shut down during
operation.
Generally, connecting a No. 12 AWG (American Wire
Gauge) stranded copper wire to the grounding fastener and
to an earth–driven copper or brass grounding rod
(electrode) provides adequate protection against electrical
shock. Be careful to keep the grounding wire attached after
connecting the stranded copper wire. However, local codes
may vary widely. Consult with a local electrician for
grounding requirements in your area.
2.
Turn fuel valve to “On” position (Figure 3).The fuel
valve handle should be vertical (pointing toward
ground) for fuel to flow.
Figure 3 — Fuel Valve
Properly grounding the generator helps prevent electrical
shock if a ground fault condition exists in the generator or
in connected electrical devices, especially when the unit is
equipped with a wheel kit. Proper grounding also helps
dissipate static electricity, which often builds up in
ungrounded devices.
Fuel Valve is shown
in the “On” position

Operation
Ground Fault Protection
Testing the GFCI
This unit is equipped with a Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter (GFCI).This device meets applicable federal,
state and local codes.
Test your GFCI outlet every month and before use, as
follows:
• Push the black “Test” button.The red “Reset” button
should pop out, which should allow no power to reach
the outlet. Use a test lamp in each outlet to test this.
The GFCI protects against electrical shock that may be
caused if your body becomes a path which electricity
travels to reach the ground.This could happen if you touch
a “Live” appliance or wire, or are touching plumbing or
other materials that connect to the ground.
CAUTION
The “Reset” button does not pop out or the test lamp
remains lit when the “Reset” button is popped out.
When protected by a GFCI, one may still feel a shock, but
the GFCI should cut current off quickly enough so that a
person in normal health should not suffer any serious
electrical injury.
• DO NOT use any outlets on the circuit.
• Call a qualified electrician.
• If the GFCI tests good, restore power by pressing the
“Reset” button firmly until it is fully in place and locks in
that position. If the GFCI outlet does not reset
properly, do not use the outlet. Call a local service
center.
DANGER
Generator produces powerful voltage.
• If the GFCI trips by itself at any time, reset and test the
outlet. If the reset button does pop out when the
test button is pressed, do not use the outlet. Call
a local service center.
• The GFCI will not protect you against the following situations:
-Line-to-line shocks;
-Current overloads or line-to-line short circuits.
• The fuse or circuit breaker at the control panel must provide
such protection.

Operation
DON'T OVERLOAD
GENERATOR
4. Plug in and turn on the next load.
5. Again, permit the generator to stabilize.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each additional load.
NEVER add more loads than the generator capacity.Take
special care to consider surge loads in generator capacity,
as described above.
Capacity
You must make sure your generator can supply enough
rated (running) and surge (starting) watts for the items you
will power at the same time. Follow these simple steps:
1. Select the items you will power at the same time.
2. Total the rated (running) watts of these items.This is
the amount of power your generator must produce to
keep your items running. See Figure 10.
3. Estimate how many surge (starting) watts you will
need. Surge wattage is the short burst of power
needed to start electric motor-driven tools or
appliances such as a circular saw or refrigerator.
Because not all motors start at the same time, total
surge watts can be estimated by adding only the
item(s) with the highest additional surge watts to the
total rated watts from step 2.

Power Management
To prolong the life of your generator and attached devices,
it is important to take care when adding electrical loads to
your generator.There should be nothing connected to the
generator outlets before starting it's engine.The correct
and safe way to manage generator power is to sequentially
add loads as follows:
1. With nothing connected to the generator, start the
engine as described in this manual.
2. Plug in and turn on the first load, preferably the largest
load you have.
3. Permit the generator output to stabilize (engine runs
smoothly and attached device operates properly).

NOTE: DO NOT use a garden hose to clean generator.
Water can enter engine fuel system and cause problems. In
addition, if water enters generator through cooling air slots,
some of the water will be retained in voids and cracks of
the rotor and stator winding insulation.Water and dirt
buildup on the generator internal windings will eventually
decrease the insulation resistance of these windings.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
RECOMMENDATIONS
WHEN ADJUSTING OR MAKING REPAIRS TO YOUR
GENERATOR
• Disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and place
the wire where it cannot contact spark plug.
The Owner/Operator is responsible for making sure that
all periodic maintenance tasks are completed on a timely
basis; that all discrepancies are corrected; and that the unit
is kept clean and properly stored. NEVER operate a
damaged or defective generator.
Generator Cleaning
• Use a damp cloth to wipe exterior surfaces clean.
CAUTION
Improper treatment of generator can damage it and
shorten its life.
Engine Maintenance
See engine owner’s manual for instructions.
• DO NOT expose generator to excessive moisture, dust, dirt,
or corrosive vapors.
• DO NOT insert any objects through cooling slots.
CAUTION
Avoid prolonged or repeated skin contact with used
motor oil.
• Use a soft bristle brush to loosen caked on dirt or oil.
• Use a vacuum cleaner to pick up loose dirt and debris.
• Use low pressure air (not to exceed 25 psi) to blow
away dirt. Inspect cooling air slots and opening on
generator.These openings must be kept clean and
unobstructed.
• Used motor oil has been shown to cause skin cancer in
certain laboratory animals.
• Thoroughly wash exposed areas with soap and water.
KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. DON'T
POLLUTE. CONSERVE RESOURCES. RETURN
USED OIL TO COLLECTION CENTERS.
Generator Maintenance
Generator maintenance consists of keeping the unit clean
and dry. Operate and store the unit in a clean dry
environment where it will not be exposed to excessive
dust, dirt, moisture or any corrosive vapors. Cooling air
slots in the generator must not become clogged with dirt,
leaves or any other foreign material.

Storage
STORAGE
Engine Storage
See engine owner’s manual for instructions.
The generator should be started at least once every seven
days and allowed to run at least 30 minutes. If this cannot
be done and you must store the unit for more than
30 days, use the following guidelines to prepare it for
storage.
Other Storage Tips
• To prevent gum from forming in fuel system or on
essential carburetor parts, add fuel stabilizer into fuel
tank and fill with fresh fuel. Run the unit for several
minutes to circulate the additive through the carburetor.
The unit and fuel can then be stored for up to
24 months. Fuel stabilizer can be purchased locally.
Generator Storage
• Clean the generator as outlined in “Generator Cleaning”.
• Check that cooling air slots and openings on generator
are open and unobstructed.
• DO NOT store fuel from one season to another unless
it has been treated as described above.
WARNING
• Replace fuel container if it starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt
in fuel can cause problems if it's used with this unit.
Storage covers can be flammable.
• Store unit in a clean and dry area.
• DO NOT place a storage cover over a hot generator.
• Let equipment cool for a sufficient time before placing the
cover on the equipment.

About your equipment warranty:
We welcome warranty repair and apologize to you for being inconvenienced.Any Authorized Service Dealer may perform
warranty repairs. Most warranty repairs are handled routinely, but sometimes requests for warranty service may not be
appropriate. For example, warranty service would not apply if equipment damage occurred because of misuse, lack of routine
maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing or improper installation. Similarly, the warranty is void if the manufacturing date
or the serial number on the equipment has been removed or the equipment has been altered or modified. During the
warranty period, the Authorized service dealer, at its option, will repair or replace any part that, upon examination, is found to
be defective under normal use and service.This warranty will not cover following repairs and equipment:
• Normal Wear: Outdoor power equipment, like all mechanical devices, needs periodic parts, service and replacement to
perform well.This warranty does not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part or the equipment.
• Installation and Maintenance: This warranty does not apply to equipment or parts that have been subjected to
improper or unauthorized installation or alteration and modification, misuse, negligence, accident, overloading,
overspeeding, improper maintenance, repair or storage so as, in our judgment, to adversely affect its performance and
reliability.This warranty also does not cover normal maintenance such as adjustments, fuel system cleaning and
obstruction (due to chemical, dirt, carbon or lime, etc.).
