9 This generator is not designed for on-board use... Do not use it while installed on the vehicle...

Page 7

9 If you swallow any fuel, inhale fuel vapor, or allow any to get in your eye(s), see your doctor immedi- ately... If any fuel spills on your skin or clothing, immediately wash with soap and water and change your clothes...

Page 8

9 Connect the Ground (earth) terminal to a ground source... In order to prevent electrical shock, the generator must be grounded when using an elec- trical device with a ground plug...

Page 9

WARNING 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...

LOCATION OF IMPORTANT LABELS Please read the following labels carefully before oper- ating this machine... TIP Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as necessary...

Page 11

Read the owners manual and all labels before operating... Only operate in well-ventilated areas... Exhaust gas contains poisonous carbon monoxide... Check for spilled fuel or fuel leaks... Stop engine before refueling... Do not operate near flammable materials... Electrocution can occur if generator is used in rain, snow, or near water... Keep this unit dry at all times... Electrocution or property damage can occur: Do not connect this generator to any buildings electrical system unless an isolation switch has been installed by a licensed electrician... Refer to the owners manual... When operating the generator:

Page 13

TIP If the engine stalls or does not start, turn the engine switch to 7 (ON) and then pull the recoil starter... If the oil warning light flickers for a few seconds, the engine oil is insufficient... Add oil and restart...

Page 14

DC protector The DC protector turns to 3 (OFF) automatically when electric device being connected to the generator is operating and current above the rated flows... To use this equipment again, turn on the DC protector by pressing its button to I (ON)...

Page 15

Overload indicator light (Red) The overload indicator light comes on when an over- load of a connected electrical device is detected, the inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output volt- age rises... Then, the AC protector will trip, stopping power generation in order to protect the generator and any connected electric devices... The AC pilot light (Green) will go off and the overload indicator light (Red) will stay on, but the engine will not stop running...

Page 16

Fuel tank cap air vent lever The fuel tank cap is provided with an air vent lever to stop fuel flow... The air vent lever must be turned to ON... This will allow fuel to flow to the carburetor and the engine to run... When the engine is not in use, turn the air vent lever to OFF to stop fuel flow...

Page 17

Twin Tech (Parallel generator operation) Two EF2000iSv2 generators can be operated in paral- lel to increase the rated output to 3... 0 kVA and the rated current to 25... 0 A... For parallel operation, use only a special parallel cable set (optional equipment) approved by Yamaha; contact your Yamaha dealer for the proper parallel cable set... The handling, operation procedure and the notes on usage are described in the parallel cable set owners manual included in the parallel cable set... Consult a Yamaha dealer for this parallel cable set... TIP The EF2000iSv2 may be connected in parallel with an earlier model Yamaha EF2000iS... However, a second Yamaha EF2000iSv2 is recommended to use the full capabilities of this model...
