GENERATOR PREPARATION USING THE GENERATOR FOR THE FIRST TIME The following section describes steps necessary to prepare the generator for use. If after reading this sec- tion, you are unsure about how to perform any of the steps please call (800) 232-1195 M-F 8-5 CST for customer service.
GENERATOR PREPARATION Step 2 - ADD GASOLINE WARNING: This generator may emit highly flammable and explosive gasoline vapors, which can cause severe burns or even death if ignited. A nearby open flame can lead to explosion even if not directly in contact with gasoline. Use fresh (within 30 days from purchase), lead-free gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane rating.
STARTING THE GENERATOR Before starting the generator, make sure you have read and performed the steps in the “Generator Preperation” section of this manual. If you are unsure about how to perform any of the steps in this manual please call (800) 232-1195 M-F 8-5 CST for customer service.
STARTING THE GENERATOR STARTING THE ENGINE To start the generator, perform the following steps: 1. Unplug all electrical devices from the generator during starting. Otherwise it can be difficult for the engine to start. 2. Check that the generator is properly grounded (Refer to “Ground the Generator”). 3.
STARTING THE GENERATOR IDLE CONTROL SWITCH (ESC) This generator is equipped with an Idle Control Switch. En- gaging the switch will automatically adjust the engine speed. When an electrical device comes on line, the generator en- gine will automatically speed up to supply the power needed and will slow down as the need decreases.
SUBSEQUENT STARTING OF THE GENERATOR To check or add oil, follow these steps: 1. Place the generator on a level surface. 2. Open access panel. Clean around oil fill hole. Remove dipstick and wipe the dipstick with a clean rag. In- sert the dipstick into the oil fill opening without screwing in.
The surge wattage ability of the generator covers this extra power requirement. Item Rated (Running) Wattage Surge Wattage 56200i 1600 2000 Figure 6 - Generator Wattage The total running wattage requirement of the electrical devices connected to the generator should not exceed the rated wattage of the generator itself.
USING THE GENERATOR CAUTION: The generator can run at its surge wattage capacity for only a short time. Connect electrical devices requiring a rated (running) wattage equal to or less than the rated wattage of the generator. Never connect devices requiring a rated wattage equal to the surge wattage of the generator.
USING THE GENERATOR CAUTION: Do not connect 50Hz loads to the generator. 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 rated wattage requirement by the electrical device. See Figure 8 for recommended cords based on the power requirement of the electrical device.
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.
MAINTENANCE & CARE To refill 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.
MAINTENANCE & CARE 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. Refer to Recommended Maintenance Schedule in Figure 9. To inspect the spark plug: 1.
MAINTENANCE & CARE 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. Set idle control switch to “ON” position. Start generator without any device connected to it. Turn the fuel valve to “off”...
