SERVICE, MAINTENANCE AND RUNNING TIPS • Always read the instruction

manual carefully • Before starting the generator, always

starting the generator, once started, switch the choke to the ‘off’ position • Never connect appliances before

ensure that there is sufficient oil and fuel

starting your generator, always start the

SAE30 graded oil and unleaded petrol (for petrol models) and low sulphur diesel (for diesel models). • Do not use dirty fuel or oil in the

generator • Always place the generator on a flat

surface when pouring in the oil and fuel

• Disconnect appliances before switching

off your generator • Switch off the fuel tap prior to turning

off the generator, to allow the fuel in the carburettor to be used • It is recommended that the first service

should be done after 20 running hours

• If you have an electric start generator,

and thereafter at 50-hour intervals

check that the battery is fully charged

• Always operate your generator in a
