HW7000EH Portable Electrical Generator Owner’s Manual
Grounding the Generator
Grounding the Generator
WARNING
Generator must be grounded to prevent electrical
shock from faulty appliances.
• Before using generator, consult a licensed electrician,
electrical inspector, or local agency having jurisdiction
for local codes or ordinances that apply to the intended
use of generator.
The National Electric Code (NEC) requires the generator
to be connected to an earth ground. Before using the generator, connect a copper wire (minimum 10 AWG) from the
ground terminal (see Figure 17) to an earth ground. Consult a licensed electrician for proper grounding methods.
Using Generator for Backup Power
DANGER
Improper connections of the generator to a building’s electrical system can be deadly.
Electrical current from generator can feedback into
utility lines. Such feedback may electrocute utility
company workers or others who contact utility lines
during a power outage.
Electrical current can feedback into generator. When
utility power is restored, generator may explode,
burn, or cause fires in building's electrical system.
• Before connecting to a building’s electrical system, consult a licensed electrician, electrical inspector, or local
agency having jurisdiction for local codes or ordinances
that apply to the intended use of generator.
FIGURE 17: Ground Terminal
NOTE:
The generator is neutral floating which means the ground
terminal on the generator is not connected to the AC neutral wire in the generator. If using a receptacle tester, it will
not show the same ground circuit condition as for a home
receptacle.
Special Requirements
There may be Federal or State Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, local codes, or
ordinances that apply to the intended use of generator.
Consult a licensed electrician, electrical inspector, or the
local agency having jurisdiction.
•
In some areas, generators are required to be registered with local utility companies.
•
If generator is used at a construction site, there may
be additional regulations which must be observed.

OPERATION
Generator Location
When deciding on the location to place your generator,
keep in mind the following safety rules:
DANGER
+
Depressed areas such as construction foundations,
pools, or any low-lying areas, can cause carbon
monoxide to accumulate. Inhalation of carbon monoxide can kill you in minutes.
• NEVER use generator inside homes, garages,
crawl spaces, sheds, or similar enclosed
spaces. Use generator only outdoors and far
away from windows, doors, and vents.
WARNING
If generator is placed on an uneven or flexible surface, generator could tilt or overturn, causing fuel to
spill from gas tank. Spilled fuel could ignite.
• Place generator on firm, level surface and avoid
loose sand or snow. If generator is tilted or
overturned, fuel spillage may result. Also, if
generator is overturned or sinks into a soft surface, sand, dirt, or water may enter generator.
WARNING
Preparing for Operation
DANGER
CARBON MONOXIDE
Generator exhaust contains high levels of carbon monoxide
(CO), a poisonous gas you cannot see or smell. If you can
smell the generator exhaust, you are breathing CO. But even
if you cannot smell the exhaust, you could be breathing CO.
• NEVER use a generator inside homes, garages, crawlspaces, or other partly enclosed areas. Deadly levels
of carbon monoxide can build up in these areas. Using
a fan or opening windows and doors does NOT supply
enough fresh air.
• ONLY use a generator outdoors and far away from
open windows, doors, and vents. These openings can
pull in generator exhaust.
Even when you use a generator correctly, CO may leak into
the home. ALWAYS use a battery-powered or batterybackup CO alarm in the home.
If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak after the generator has
been running, move to fresh air RIGHT AWAY. See a doctor.
You could have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Before starting generator, complete the following preparation tasks:
‰
NEVER operate generator in rain or snow, or when
the generator is set on wet surface.
‰
WARNING
Keep generator at least 6 feet (2 meters) away from
buildings, other equipment, and combustible materials during operation.
Be sure generator is placed outdoors in a well
ventilated area. Using a generator indoors CAN KILL
YOU IN MINUTES.
Consult a licensed electrician or utility company if
you will be using your generator for back-up
power. See “Using Generator for Backup Power” on
page 11.
DANGER
Before connecting to a building’s electrical system,
consult utility company or licensed electrician.
• Electrical current from generator can feedback
into utility lines. Such feedback may electrocute
utility company workers or others who contact
utility lines during a power outage.
‰

High-Altitude Operation
High-Altitude Operation
At high altitudes, standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will
be excessively rich. Performance will decrease and fuel
consumption will increase.
High-altitude performance can be improved by installing a
smaller diameter main fuel jet in the carburetor and then
readjusting the pilot screw. If you always operate the
engine at altitudes higher than 5000 feet (1500 meters)
above sea level, have an authorized generator dealer perform this carburetor modification.
Even with suitable carburetor jetting, engine horsepower
will decrease approximately 3.5% for each 1000 foot (300
meter) increase in altitude above sea level. The effect of
altitude on horsepower will be greater than this if no carburetor modification is made.
•
Plan carefully: Before using the generator to power
appliances, take time to add power ratings (wattage)
of each appliance and verify that total wattage does
not exceed rated output of generator. Power rating
information can usually be found on an appliance’s
product label, stamped inside, or on the back of the
appliance. See Table 1 for a listing of average appliance wattage requirements.
•
NEVER overload: Circuit breakers will stop the flow
of electricity between generator and appliance if the
generator is overloaded. This will be indicated by a
“tripped” breaker. If the master circuit breaker is
tripped, reduce the load on the Twist-Lock (NEMA
L14-30R) receptacle and reset the breaker. If a duplex
circuit breaker is tripped, reduce the load on the
duplex (NEMA 5-20R) receptacles above the breaker,
wait several minutes for the breaker to cool, and reset
the breaker.
•
Pay attention to appliance operation: If appliance
begins to operate abnormally, becomes sluggish, or
stops suddenly, turn it OFF immediately. Disconnect
appliance and determine whether problem is appliance, or if rated load capacity of generator has been
exceeded.
•
Use suitable extension cords: If using an extension
cord to connect appliance to generator, use only ULlisted, three-prong extension cords that are intended
for outdoor use. Be sure extension cord is proper size
(wire-gauge) to handle electric load that will be
plugged into it.
NOTICE
If the engine is jetted for high-altitude and is used at a lower
altitude, it will run a lean air-fuel mixture that results in
reduced performance, possible over-heating, and possible
serious engine damage.
Powering Appliances
NOTE:
In this manual, the term “appliance” refers to any electrical device that can be connected to generator for power.
Rules for Powering Appliances
NOTICE
NEVER start generator with electrical appliances plugged in
and turned on.
WARNING
Faulty appliances and power cords can result in electrical shock.
• Before attempting to power an appliance, be sure generator has been properly grounded, and the appliance
and power cord are in good working order.
• NEVER use generator for any purpose other than its
intended use.
• NEVER parallel connect generators or lengthen the
exhaust pipe.
• NEVER connect generator directly to any household
receptacle using a power cord with male plugs at both
ends.
CAUTION
NEVER run power cords under carpet, rugs, or other materials where heat might build up or cord damage may go unnoticed.
WARNING
Medical and Life Support Uses
• In case of emergency, call 911 immediately.
• NEVER use this product to power life support devices
or life support appliances.
• NEVER use this product to power medical devices or
medical appliances.
• Inform your electricity provider immediately if you or
