Hide thumbs



Thank you for purchasing this model of the standby
generator set.
Every effort was expended to make sure that the
information and instructions in this manual are both
accurate and current at the time the manual was writ-
ten. However, the manufacturer reserves the right to
change, alter or otherwise improve this product(s) at
any time without prior notice.
If any portion of this manual is not understood, con-
tact the nearest Authorized Service Dealer for start-
ing, operating and servicing procedures.
Throughout this publication, and on tags and
decals affixed to the generator, DANGER, WARNING,
CAUTION and NOTE blocks are used to alert person-
nel to special instructions about a particular service
or operation that may be hazardous if performed
incorrectly or carelessly. Observe them carefully. Their
definitions are as follows:
After this heading, read instructions that, if not
strictly complied with, will result in personal injury
or property damage.
After this heading, read instructions that, if not
strictly complied with, may result in personal injury
or property damage.
After this heading, read instructions that, if not
strictly complied with, could result in damage to
equipment and/or property.
After this heading, read explanatory statements
that require special emphasis.
These safety warnings cannot eliminate the hazards
that they indicate. Common sense and strict compli-
ance with the special instructions while performing the
service are essential to preventing accidents.
Four commonly used safety symbols accompany the
DANGER, WARNING and CAUTION blocks. The type
of information each indicates is as follows:
This symbol points out important safety informa-
tion that, if not followed, could endanger personal
safety and/or property of others.
This symbol points out potential explosion hazard.
This symbol points out potential fire hazard.
This symbol points out potential electrical shock
The operator is responsible for proper and safe use
of the equipment. The manufacturer strongly recom-
mends that the operator read this Owner's Manual
and thoroughly understand all instructions before
using this equipment. The manufacturer also strong-
ly recommends instructing other users to properly
start and operate the unit. This prepares them if they
need to operate the equipment in an emergency.
It is the operator's responsibility to perform all safety
checks, to make sure that all maintenance for safe
operation is performed promptly, and to have the
equipment checked periodically by an Authorized
Service Dealer. Normal maintenance service and
replacement of parts are the responsibility of the
owner/operator and, as such, are not considered
defects in materials or workmanship within the terms
of the warranty. Individual operating habits and usage
contribute to the need for maintenance service.
Proper maintenance and care of the generator ensures
a minimum number of problems and keep operating
expenses at a minimum. See the Authorized Service
Dealer for service aids and accessories.
Operating instructions presented in this manual
assume that the standby electric system has been
installed by an Authorized Service Dealer or other
competent, qualified contractor. Installation of this
equipment is not a "do-it-yourself" project.
When the generator requires servicing or repairs,
contact an Authorized Service Dealer for assistance.
Service technicians are factory-trained and are capa-
ble of handling all service needs.
When contacting an Authorized Service Dealer about
parts and service, always supply the complete model
number of the unit as given on the front cover of this
manual or on the DATA LABEL affixed to the unit.
