Generator Location
NEVER operate the generator inside any building,
including garages, basements, crawlspaces and sheds,
enclosure or compartment, including the generator
compartment of a recreational vehicle. Please consult
your local authority. In some areas, generators must
be registered with the local utility. Generators used at
construction sites may be subject to additional rules and
regulations. Generators should be on a flat, level surface
at all times. (Even while not in operation) Generators
must have at least 5 ft. (1.5 m) of clearance from all
combustible material. In addition to clearance from
all combustible material, generators must also have
at least 3 ft. (91.4 cm) of clearance on all sides to
allow for adequate cooling, maintenance and servicing.
Generators should never be started or operated in the
back of a SUV, camper, trailer, in the bed of a truck
(regular, flat or otherwise), under staircases/stairwells,
next to walls or buildings, or in any other location that
will not allow for adequate cooling of the generator
and/or the muffler. DO NOT contain generators during
operation. Allow generators to properly cool before
transport or storage.
Place the generator in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT
place the generator near vents or intakes where exhaust
fumes could be drawn into occupied or confined
spaces. Carefully consider wind and air currents when
positioning generator.
Failure to follow proper safety precautions may void
manufacturer’s warranty.
Do not operate or store the generator in rain, snow,
or wet weather.
Using a generator or electrical appliance in wet
conditions, such as rain or snow, or near a pool or
sprinkler system, or when your hands are wet, could
result in electrocution.
During operation the muffler and exhaust fumes
produced will become hot. If adequate cooling and
breathing space are not supplied, or if the generator
is blocked or contained, temperatures can become
extremely heated and may lead to fire.
Surge Protection
Electronic devices, including computers and many
programmable appliances use components that are
designed to operate within a narrow voltage range and
may be affected by momentary voltage fluctuations.
While there is no way to prevent voltage fluctuations, you
can take steps to protect sensitive electronic equipment.
1. Install UL1449, CSA-listed, plug-in surge suppressors
on the outlets feeding your sensitive equipment.
Surge suppressors come in single- or multi-outlet
styles. They’re designed to protect against virtually
all short-duration voltage fluctuations.
Voltage fluctuation may impair the proper
functioning of sensitive electronic equipment.
The generator system ground connects the frame to the
ground terminals on the power panel.
The generator (stator winding) is isolated from the
frame and from the AC receptacle ground pin.
Electrical devices that require a grounded receptacle
pin connection will not function if the receptacle
ground pin is not functional.
