types of computers and inverter air-conditioners and/or the regulated power supply for TV sets, the lights might suffer flickering... This phenomenon does not indicate a fault of the generator: it is caused by poor matching between the above- mentioned regulated power supply and the generators automatic voltage regulator... In such a case, modify the load combination to eliminate the flickering...

Page 22

connected to a buildings electrical system, a licensed electrician must install an isolation (transfer) switch in the buildings main fuse box... The switch is the connection point for generator power and allows selection of generator or main line power to the building... This will prevent the generator from charging the main power line (backfeeding) when the main power supply has failed or has been turned off for line repair... Backfeeding can electrocute or injure line maintenance personnel... Also, generator and building electrical system damage can occur when normal operating power returns if unit is used without an isolation switch...

2... To slow charge the battery, connect the charger positive terminal to the battery positive terminal, and the negative to the negative, then recharge in the normal manner...

Page 42

Fuse The electrical system is protected from potential dam- age by fuses... A blown fuse indicates that there is an overload or a short circuit somewhere in the electrical system... If any of the fuses should blow, replace with a new one of the same capacity...

Page 43

fuse, determine why the fuse blew and make any necessary repairs... Failure to follow this procedure may result in serious damage to the generator electrical system... Refer to the troubleshooting section of this manual or a Yamaha dealer for specific information...

Page 44

5... When the engine is not used for a long period of time, run it for about 5 minutes under no load every 2 to 3 months to keep it free from rust... If the engine is stored without any running, moisture in the air may condense into dew over the sliding parts of the engine, resulting in rust...
