SAFETY INFORMATION 9 This generator is not designed for on-board use...

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...

Lisez le mode d'emploi et toutes les etiquettes avant de faire fonctionner la machine... Faites fonctionner uniquement dans des lieux bien aeres... Les gaz d'echappement contiennent du monoxyde de carbone... Verifiez si du carburant a ete renverse ou s'il fuit... Arretez le moteur avant de faire le plein de carburant... N'utilisez pas a proximite de materiaux inflammables... Il y a risque d'electrocution si le generateur fonctionne sous la pluie, dans la neige, ou pres de l'eau, gardez la machine ausec en toutes circonstances... Quand la gnratrice est en marche: Ne jamais entourer la gnratrice de cloisons ou d'crans... Ne jamais recouvrir la gnratrice d'une bote... Ne jamais disposer d'objets sur la gnratrice...

Page 11

Electrocution or property damage can occur : Do not connect this generator to any building's electrical system unless an isolation switch has been installed by a licensed elec- trician... Refer to the owner's manual...

Make sure there is sufficient fuel in the tank... When refueling, be sure to fill the tank to the bottom edge of the fuel tank filter...

Page 15

The generator has been shipped without engine oil... Do not start the engine until you have filled it with the sufficient engine oil...

Page 16

Recommended engine oil: A YAMALUBE 4 (10W-40), SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40 B SAE #30 C SAE #20 D SAE 10W Recommended engine oil grade: API Service SE type or higher Engine oil quantity: 0... 6 L (0... 63 US qt, 0... 53 Imp qt)

Page 17

The condition of a generator is the owners responsi- bility... Vital components can start to deteriorate quickly and unexpectedly, even if the generator is unused...

Page 18

The generator has been shipped without engine oil... Do not start the engine until you have filled it with the sufficient engine oil...

Page 19

TIP When starting the engine in areas where the ambient temperature is below 0 C (32 F), the engine auto- matically operates at the rated r/min (3,200 r/min) for 3 minutes to warm up the engine...

Page 20

Application range When using the generator, make sure the total load is within rated output of a genera- tor... Otherwise, generator damage may occur...

Page 21

High Altitude Operation This engine may require a high altitude carburetor kit to ensure correct engine opera- tion at altitudes above 4000 ft... (1219 meters)... If you operate your engine at altitudes above 4000 ft... (1219 meters) consistently, have your local Yamaha dealer perform the necessary carburetor modification... This engine should be operated in its original config- uration below 4000 ft... (1219 meters) as damage may occur if high altitude carburetor kit is installed and operated below 4000 ft... (1219 meters)...

Page 22

9 Be sure all electric devices including the lines and plug connections are in good condition before connection to the generator...

Page 23

Overload indicator light (red) The overload indicator light (red) comes on when an overload of a connected electrical device is detected, the inverter control unit overheats, or the AC output voltage rises... The electronic breaker will then activate, stopping power generation in order to protect the gen- erator 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 run- ning...

Page 24

9 Do not connect a VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) battery... To charge a VRLA battery, a spe- cial (constant-voltage) battery charger is required...

Page 25

To restart charging the battery, turn the DC protector on by pressing its button to (ON)... If the DC protector turns off again, stop charg- ing the battery immediately and consult a Yamaha dealer...

Page 26

Operating range of DC power supply (exclusively for charging 12 V battery) This power source is designed to charge batteries up to 40 Ah that are half-discharged... Do not charge bat- teries of a higher capacity than 40 Ah... 12 V battery The time required for recharging a battery varies depending on the discharge level of the battery... When the specific gravity of the battery reaches 1... 26 to 1... 28, charging is complete... When charging, check the bat- terys specific gravity once an hour... The average time for charging a half-discharged 40 Ah battery is approximately 5 hours... Be sure to check the battery fluid level before charging...
