9 Keep the machine at least 1 m (3 ft) from buildings or other equipment, or the engine may overheat...

Page 13

Before the generator can be connected to a build- ings electrical system, a licensed electrician must install an isolation (transfer) switch in the build- ings 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 build- ing electrical system damage can occur when nor- mal operating power returns if unit is used without an isolation switch...

Page 14

If you are planning to install the generator without its wheels attached, take into consideration being able to make oil changes efficiently...

Page 17

If the engine stalls, check the engine oil level or contamination... Add or change oil, and restart... (See page 11 for more details... ) Check the fuel level and the fuel cock because the same result can be expect- ed when the fuel runs out...

Page 18

Recommended engine oil : Use class "SE" (API classification) oil or a higher grade oil according to the table below... SAE 10W-30 is recom- mended for general, all-temperature use... If single viscosity oil is used, select the appropriate viscosity for the average temperature in your area...

Do not refuel while smoking or near open flame or other such potential fire hazards... Otherwise fire accident may occur...

Page 20

Make sure you review each warning in order to prevent fire hazard... Do not refill tank while engine is running or hot... Close fuel cock before refueling with fuel... Be careful not to admit dust, dirt, water or other foreign objects into fuel... Do not fill above the top of the fuel filter (marked "LEVEL") or the fuel may

tures... Only operate generator in a dry, well ventilated area... Keep exhaust pipe clear of foreign objects... Keep generator away from open flame... No smoking! Keep generator on a stable and level surface... Do not block generator air vents with paper or other material...

Page 23

If the engine fails to start, release the switch, wait a few seconds, than try again... Each attempt should be as short as possible to preserve the bat- tery... Do not crank the engine more than 10 seconds on any one attempt...

Page 24

Be sure to ground the generator if the connected appliance is grounded... Failure to ground unit may lead to electrical shock...

Page 25

(b) Before starting the engine, check that the economy switch and AC switch of the generator and the power switches of the appliances are turned off...

Page 26

The duplex 120V receptacle is protected by a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)... GFCI shuts off the output current from the duplex 120V recepta- cle when a ground fault occurs in the generator or the appliance... Please note that other receptacles are not protected by GFCI...

Page 27

When the AC switch (no-fuse breaker) turns off during operation, the genera- tor is over loaded or the appliance is defective... Stop the generator immedi- ately, check the appliance and / or gen- erator for overloading or detect and have repaired as necessary by Yamaha dealer or service shop...

Page 28

Most induction loads such as electric motors require three to five times more wattage than their ratings during starting... This starting wattage should not exceed the rated output of the generator for prop- er operation of ECONOMY SWITCH...

Page 29

It is normal that the engine speed goes up for a moment when you turn the starter switch to "STOP" while the Economy switch is in the "ON" position...

Page 30

Some appliances need a "surge" of energy when starting... This means that the amount of electrical power needed to start the appliance may exceed the amount needed to maintain its use... Electrical appliances and tools normally come with a label indicating voltage, cycles/Hz, amperage (amps) and electrical power needed to run the appliance or tool... Check with your nearest dealer or service center with questions regarding power surge of certain appliances or power tools...

Page 31

VOLTAGE DROP IN ELECTRIC EXTENSION CORDS When a long electric extension cord is used to connect an appliance or tool with the generator, a certain amount of voltage drop occurs in the extension cord which lessens the effective voltage available to the appliance or tool... The chart below has been prepared to illustrate the approximate voltage loss when an extension cord of 300 feet (approx... 100 meters) is used to connect an appliance or tool to the generator...

Page 32

PERIODIC MAINTENANCE Periodic maintenance is vital to safe and efficient operation of your generator... Check the table below for periodic maintenance intervals... IT IS ALSO NECESSARY FOR THE USER OF THIS GENERATOR TO CONDUCT THE MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENTS ON THE EMISSION- RELATED PARTS LISTED BELOW TO KEEP THE EMISSION CONTROL SYS- TEM EFFECTIVE...

Page 33

*Note 1 : Initial oil change should be performed after first twenty (20) hours of operation... Thereafter change oil every hundred (100) hours... Before changing oil, check for a suitable way to dispose of old oil... Do not pour it down into sewage drains, onto garden soil or into open streams... Your local zoning or environmental regulations will give you more detailed instruc- tions on proper disposal...

Page 34

When installing a new oil filter, apply oil to O-ring, attach the oil filter in position and tighten 2/3 turns by hand or with wrench after touching the O-ring to the sealing surface of engine...

Page 35

The air cleaner paper inner element and urethane foam outer element can be removed after removing knob and air cleaner cover... When installing, set the paper element and urethane foam on the air cleaner base... Check that the grommet is in position, and then install the cover with knob tightened securely...

(d) Clean the electrodes if they are dirty... Adjust the clearance to 0... 7-0... 8 mm (0... 028-0... 031in)... Replace it with a new one if the abrasion has developed to the degree where a flat surface can- not be obtained on its projection... If the electrodes turn black, also inspect the air cleaner...

Page 37

CHECKING CARBON BRUSH If the brush become excessively worn, its contact pressure with the slip ring changes and causes a roughened surface on the slip ring, resulting in irregular gen- erator performance...

Page 38

Batteries produce explosive gases... Keep sparks, flame, cigarettes, etc... away... Ventilate when charging or using in an enclosed space... Always shield your eyes when working near batteries... KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN...

Page 39

SPARK ARRESTER In a dry or wooded area, it is recommendable to use the engine with a spark arrester... Some areas require the use of a spark arrester... Please check your local laws and regulations before operating your engine...

Page 40

Drain fuel from fuel tank and strainer (cup) carefully by disconnecting the fuel line... Gasoline left in the fuel tank will eventually deteriorate making engine-starting difficult...

Page 41

4... Store the battery in a cool, dark and dry place... Do not store the battery in an excessively warm or cold place [i... e... , less than 0C (30F) or more than 30C (90F)]...

When generator engine fails to start after several attempts, or if no electricity is available at the output receptacles, check the possible causes in accordance with the following table... If your generator still fails to start or generate electricity, con- tact your nearest Yamaha dealer or authorized service center for further informa- tion or corrective procedures...
