WEEKLY EXERCISE CYCLE

The engine control board will start and run the gen-
erator once every seven days for approximately 12
minutes. If utility should fail during this exercise
period, the engine control board will transfer the load
to the generator output and continue to run until util-
ity returns.
On the day, and at the time of day chosen for the
generator to exercise, set the weekly exercise cycle
as follows:
1. Place the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch in the
AUTO position.
2. Press and hold the "Set Exercise" switch for three
seconds, then release.
At this time all five red LEDs will flash for approxi-
mately 10 seconds, then the engine will start and run
for it's 12 minute exercise period, then shut down.
The generator will now start and run each week at
the same time.
If DC power to the control board is lost, the weekly
exercise setting will be lost. This is indicated by all
five red LEDs continually flashing. In this state the
generator will still start and run in manual mode, or
automatically start and run if UTILITY is lost while in
Auto mode, but it will not perform a weekly exercise
cycle.
If a failure occurs while running in this mode, the five
red LEDs will stop flashing, the individual fault LED
will turn on and the engine will shut down. Once the
AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch has been switch to OFF ,
the individual fault LED will turn OFF and the five
red LEDs will begin flashing to show exercise has still
not been set.

ONCE EVERY SIX MONTHS
1. Test Engine Safety Devices (low oil pressure, low
coolant level, high coolant temperature).
ONCE ANNUALLY

2. Clean, inspect generator.
3. Flush cooling system.
FIRST 100 OPERATING HOURS
1. Change engine oil and oil filter. (After initial

COOLING SYSTEM
Air intake and outlet openings in the generator com-
partment must be open and unobstructed for contin-
ued proper operation. This includes such obstruc-
tions as high grass, weeds, brush, leaves and snow.
Without sufficient cooling and ventilating air flow, the
engine/generator quickly overheats, which causes it
to shut down. (See Section 6 for installation drawings
and vent locations.)
The exhaust system parts from this product get
extremely hot and remain hot after shutdown.
High grass, weeds, brush, leaves, etc. must
remain clear of the exhaust. Such materials may
ignite and burn from the heat of the exhaust
system.
