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 3. Make sure Idle Control switch is in “Off” position (Figure 4). Figure 4 — Idle Control Switch 8 Operation 4. Charging a Battery Start engine according to instructions given in engine owner’s manual. Your generator has the capability of recharging a discharged 12 Volt automotive or utility style storage battery. DO NOT use the unit to charge any 6 Volt batteries. DO NOT use the unit to crank an engine having a discharged battery. NOTE: If engine starts after 3 pulls but fails to run, or if unit shuts down during operation, make sure unit is on a level surface and check for proper oil level in crankcase. This unit may be equipped with a low oil protection device. See engine manual. DANGER Storage batteries give off explosive hydrogen gas during recharging. Hydrogen gas stays near battery for a long time after battery has been charged. Slightest spark will ignite hydrogen and cause explosion. You can be blinded or severely injured. Battery electrolyte fluid contains acid and is extremely caustic. Contact with battery fluid will cause severe chemical burns. Connecting Electrical Loads • Let engine stabilize and warm up for a few minutes after starting. • Plug in and turn on the desired 120 and/or 240 Volt AC, single phase, 60 Hz electrical loads. • DO NOT connect 240 Volt loads to the 120 Volt duplex receptacles. • DO NOT connect 3–phase loads to the generator. • DO NOT connect 50 Hz loads to the generator. • DO NOT allow any open flame, spark, heat, or lit cigarette during and for several minutes after charging a battery. • Wear protective goggles, rubber apron, and rubber gloves. • DO NOT OVERLOAD THE GENERATOR.

Connect battery charge cable clamp with black handle to the negative (–) battery terminal (Figure 5). 7. Start engine. Let engine run while battery recharges. 8. When battery has charged, shut down engine Figure 6 — Permanent Cold Weather Shelter Wind NOTE: Use an automotive hydrometer to test battery state of charge and condition. Follow the hydrometer manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Generally, a battery is considered to be at 100% state of charge when specific gravity of its fluid (as measured by hydrometer) is 1.260 or higher. COLD WEATHER OPERATION 2. Under certain weather conditions (temperatures below 40°F [4°C] and a high dew point), your generator may experience icing of the carburetor and/or the crankcase breather system. 3. 4. Build a structure that will enclose three sides and the top of the generator: 1. Ensure a minimum of two feet clearance between open side of box and nearest object. Face exposed end away from wind and elements. Enclosure should hold enough heat created by generator to prevent problems. DANGER Running generator gives off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas. Breathing carbon monoxide will cause nausea, fainting or death. Make sure entire muffler-side of generator is exposed. Note that your generator may appear different from that shown in Figure 6. • Operate generator ONLY outdoors. • Keep at least 2 feet of clearance on all sides of generator for adequate ventilation. • DO NOT operate generator inside any building or enclosure, including the generator compartment of a recreational vehicle (RV). • Remove generator from shelter when temperature is above 40°F [4°C]. 10 Operation RECEPTACLES 120 Volt AC, 20 Amp, GFCI Duplex Receptacles CAUTION Each duplex receptacle (Figure 8) is protected against overload by a push–to–reset circuit breaker. Receptacles may be marked with rating value greater than generator output capacity. Figure 8 — 120 Volt, 20 Amp GFCI Duplex Receptacle • NEVER attempt to power a device requiring more amperage than generator or receptacle can supply. • DO NOT overload the generator. See “Don’t Overload Generator”. 120/240 Volt AC, 30 Amp, Locking Receptacle Use a NEMA L14–30 plug with this receptacle. Connect a 4–wire cord set rated for 250 Volt AC loads at 30 Amps (or greater) (Figure 7).You can use the same 4–wire cord if you plan to run a 120 Volt load. Figure 7 — 120/240 Volt AC, 30 Amp Receptacle 4-Wire Cord Set Use each receptacle to operate 120 Volt AC, single–phase, 60 Hz electrical loads requiring up to 2,400 watts (2.4 kW) at 20 Amps of current.

See “Charging a Battery” on page 9 before attempting to recharge a battery.This outlet is protected by a 10 Amp self-resetting circuit breaker. 11 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. 12 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.
