OBTAINING ELECTRICITY FROM THE GENERATOR

There are basically 2 ways to obtain electricity from a generator:

1.Use of extension cords directly from the generator to the appliance, lights, tools, etc.

2.Use of a double-throwtransfer switch installed directly to the main electrical supply outside of house.

Extension Cords

When using an appliance or tool at a considerable distance from the generator, a 3-wireextension cord that has a3-bladegrounding plug and a3-slotreceptacle that accepts the tool's plugMUST be used in order to reduce the risk of electrical shock. A cord of adequate size must be used. Using the following chart to determine the minimum wire size required.

Extension Cord Wire Gauge Chart

0 to 100 ft.

10 ga.

Up to 30 amp draw

 

 

 

*NOTE: When amperage exceeds 20 amps; a 12 gauge extension cord should not be used for long distances.

An extension cord that is hot to the touch is overloaded. Repair or replace damaged extension cords immediately.

Double Throw Transfer Switch

Potential hazards exist when a portable electric generator is connected to the main electrical supply coming into the house. It is at that point that the electrical generator could feed back into the utility company's system causing possible electrocution of workers who are repairing the electrical lines.

To avoid back feeding of electricity into utility systems, a double-throwtransfer switch must be installed between the generator and utility power. The DoubleThrow Transfer Switch should be installed by a licensed electrician and in compliance with all state and local electrical codes.(When installing a Double-Throw

Transfer Switch, a minimum of 10 gauge wiring must be used.)

The electrician should also install a sub-panelto isolate the circuits you would want to use during an emergency or electrical power outage. Your generator will not be large enough to handle the load of all the lights, appliances, TV, etc. at one time. To select which items to run during the electrical power outage, seeWattage Calculation section in this manual.

11 — ENG

OPERATION

KNOW YOUR GENERATOR

Read this General Manual and Safety Rules before operation of your Generator. Compare the illustration in your parts manual with your generator to familiarize yourself with the location of various controls and adjustments. Save all manuals for future references.

GENERATOR CAPACITY

IMPORTANT: Exceeding the rated capacity of your generator can result in serious damage to your generator and connected electrical devices. See theWattage Calculation section in this manual to assist you in determining the appliances and tools that can be ran with the wattage capacity of your generator.

CIRCUIT BREAKERS

Each receptacle has a circuit breaker to protect the generator from overloading. If the circuit breaker trips, unplug all electrical loads from the generator. Let the circuit breaker cool down. Push circuit breaker button to reset.

LOW OIL SHUTDOWN

Your generator engine is equipped with Low Oil Shutdown. Low Oil Shutdown is a safety device designed to protect your engine from damage in the event the oil level in the crankcase is low.

If while the engine is running, the oil gets low, it will automatically shut itself down and will not restart until the oil is added. If the oil is low before start-up,the generator will not start until oil is added.

NOTE: The Low Oil Shutdown mechanism is very sensitive. You must fill the engine to the full mark on the dipstick to inactivate this safety device.

OFF/RUN/START SWITCH

Placed in the START position to start engine and the OFF position to stop engine. NOTE: When engine is running switch will remain in the run position.

IDLE CONTROL

Choose the correct application.

1.For normal application such as power tools, small electric appliances, light bulbs, and radios:

Place the idle control switch in the ON position. The generator will idle down when there is no load. This lowers the engine noise, saves on fuel consumption, and engine life.

2.Idling down IS NOT recommend on large motors (refrigerators, freezers, etc) or voltage sensitive electronic equipment (computers, televisions, etc). For these applications:

Place the idle control switch in the OFF position.

12V DC OUTLET

IMPORTANT: Allow generator to run at no load for 5 minutes upon each initialstart-upto allow engine to stabilize.

IMPORTANT: When the unit is running the battery will charge. DO NOT connect the 12V DC cables to the generator’s battery.

To charge battery:

1.Using the 12V DC cables supplied, connect the red positive (+) 12V DC cable to the battery's positive (+) terminal.

2.Attach the other end of the red positive (+) 12V DC cable to the generators positive (+) 12V DC outlet.

3.Connect the black negative (-)12V DC cable to the battery's negative(-)terminal.

4.Attach the other end of the black negative (-)12V DC cable to the generators negative(-)12V DC outlet.

5.Charge the battery according to battery or equipment manufacturer recommendations.

BEFORE START UP

This generator has been shipped from the factory

without oil in the crankcase. Operating the unit without oil can damage the engine.

Always check engine oil level before every start.

Running engine low of oil or out of oil could result in serious damage to the engine.

Follow the steps listed below before starting generator:

1.Check engine oil. Refer to the Engine Operator's Manual for correct grade and quantity of oil.

2.Check fuel level, fill as required. Make sure generator is turned off and has been allowed time to cool down. Use clean, fresh, regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline.

Never fill fuel tank completely. Fill tank to 1/2" below the

bottom of the filler neck to provide space for fuel expansion. Wipe any fuel spillage from engine and equipment before starting engine.

Never fill fuel tank indoors. Never fill fuel tank when

engine is running or hot. Do not smoke when filling fuel tank.

Never run engine indoors or in enclosed, poor ventilated

areas, engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas.

3.Make sure generator is grounded in accordance with local requirements.

4.All electrical loads MUST be disconnected

5.The idle control switch MUST be in the OFF position.

Engine speed has been factory set to provide safe op-

eration. Tampering with the engine speed adjustment could result in overheating of attachments and could cause a fire. Never attempt to “speed-up”the engine to obtain more performance. Both the output voltage and frequency will be thrown out of standard by this practice, endangering attachments and the user.

You MUST unplug any load from the generator before

starting to prevent permanent damage to any appliances.

TO START THE ENGINE

Never run engine indoors or in enclosed, poor ventilated areas,

engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the battery is properly serviced, fully charged, and assembled before starting.

1. Open the fuel shut-offvalve.

2.Move the choke control located on the engine to "CHOKE" position. A cold engine may require to be choked longer than a warm engine.

3. For Electric Start:Push

IMPORTANT: Allow generator to run at no load for 5 minutes upon each

initial start-upto allow engine and generator to stabilize.

13 — ENG

STOPPING ENGINE

1. Disconnect all electrical loads.

2. Turn OFF/RUN/START switch to "OFF" position.

3. Close fuel shut-offvalve.

CONNECTING ELECTRICAL LOADS

1.Let engine run and warm up for five minutes after starting with no electrical load.

Connect loads in the following manner to prevent damage to equipment:

2.Connect inductive load equipment first, inductive loads consist of refrigerators, freezers, water pumps, air conditioners, or small hand tools. Connect the items that require the most wattage first. See Wattage Calculation Section in this manual.

3.Connect the lights next.

4.Voltage sensitive equipment should be the last equipment connected to the generator. Plug voltage sensitive appliances such at TV's, VCR's, microwaves, ovens, computers, and cordless telephones into a UL listed voltage surge protector, then connect the UL listed voltage surge protector to the generator.

Failure to connect and operate equipment in this sequence can cause damage to equipment

and will void the warranty on your generator. Follow the wattage calculation table in the Wattage Calculation section of this manual. Overloading the generator will cause power fluctuations and can damage equipment and appliances.

Porter-CableCorporation will only be responsible for damage to customer's equipment when the generator is determined to be defective. This determination will only be made by an authorized representative ofPorter-CableCorporation and this decision will be final.Porter-CableCorporation reserves the right to inspect the electrical connections at the customer's site of operation and test the generator for proper operation before any determination of liability is made.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

The warranty of the generator does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain the generator as instructed in this manual.

ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Refer to the Engine Operator's manual for service and maintenance of the engine.

GENERATOR MAINTENANCE

Your generator should be kept clean and dry at all times. The generator should not be stored or operated in environments that includes excessive moisture, dust or any corrosive vapors. If these substances are on the generator, clean with a cloth or soft bristle brush. Do not use a garden hose or anything with water pressure to clean the generator. Water may enter the cooling air slots and could possibly damage the rotor, stator and the internal windings of the generator head.

GROUND FAULT CIRCUIT INTERRUPTER (GFCI RECEPTACLE)

MONTHLY: For maximum protection against electrical shock the GFCI should be tested monthly.

To test:

1.Depress the TEST button. The RESET button should extend. If the RESET button does not extend, notify a Porter-CableAuthorized Service Center.

2.To restore power, depress the RESET button firmly into the GFCI unit until an audible click is heard. If reset properly, the RESET button is flush with the surface of the test button. When the button stays in, the power is ON.

15 — ENG

STORAGE

If you are going to store your generator for more than 30 days, use the following information as a guide to prepare the generator for storage.

Never store generator with fuel in the tank indoors or in enclosed, poorly ventilated areas, where fumes can reach an open flame, spark or pilot light as on a furnace, water heater, clothes dryer or other gas appliances.

Engine Preparation

1.Add fuel stabilizer to fuel tank to minimize the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage.

2.Run engine at least 5 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow it to enter the fuel system.

3.Next shut off engine.

4.Disconnect the spark plug wires and remove the spark plugs.

5.Add one teaspoon of oil through the spark plug hole.

6.Place rag over spark plug hole and pull the recoil a few times to lubricate the combustion chamber.

7.Replace the spark plugs and reconnect spark plug wires.

NOTE: If a fuel stabilizer is not used, all gasoline must be drained from the tank and carburetor to prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of the engine.

Generator

1.Clean the generator as outlined in the Maintenance Section on this manual.

2.Check that cooling air slots and openings on generator are open and unobstructed.

Battery

To prevent sparks, disconnect the black

battery cable from the negative (-)terminal before disconnecting the red positive cable.

1.Remove black negative battery cable from the battery.

2.Remove red positive battery cable from the battery.

3.Clean the battery posts.

4.The battery should be fully charged before storing the generator. Use a portable 12 volt battery charger. if needed, to bring battery to full charge (12.6 at 70ºF.). Refer to the battery charger’s operator’s manual for the correct procedure. If a battery charger is not available, have an authorized service center charge the battery.

When charging the battery, do not smoke. Keep away from any

sparks. The fumes from the battery acid can cause an explosion. To prevent explosive fumes from accumulating do not charge in an enclosed area.

Sulfuric acid is a flammable and explosive chemical

that is harmful to the skin, eyes, and clothing.

NOTE: The battery may need to be recharged if stored a long period of time.

16 — ENG

WATTAGE CALCULATIONS

IMPORTANT

Never exceed the rated capacity of your generator. Serious damage to the generator or appliance could result from an overload.

1.Starting and running wattage requirements should always be calculated when matching a generators wattage capacity to the appliance or tool.

2.There are two types of electrical appliances that can be powered by your generator:

A.Items such as radios, light bulbs, television sets, and microwaves have a "resistive load". Starting wattage and running wattage are the same.

B.Items such as refrigerators, air compressors, washer, dryer, and hand tools that use an electrical motor have an "inductive load". Inductive load appliances and tools require approximately 2 to 4 times the listed wattage for starting the equipment. This initial load only lasts for a few seconds onstart-upbut is very important when figuring your total wattage to be used.

C.Always start your largest electric motor first, and then plug in other items, one at a time.

NOTE: On120-voltloads the maximum starting wattage shouldNOT exceed one half of the rated generator wattage. Example: a 5000 rated wattage generator = 2500 maximum starting wattage.

DETERMINING WATTAGE REQUIREMENTS

Before operating this generator list all of the appliances and/or tools that are going to operate at the same time. (Then determine the starting wattage requirements and the running wattage requirements by following example and/or refer to wattage calculator on page 16.)

1.First total the running wattage of all appliances and/or tools that will be operated at the same time.

 

 

 

Running Watts

Starting Watts

Example 1:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lights

=

 

100 Watts

Television

=

 

300 Watts

0

Slow Cooker

=

 

250 Watts

 

 

0

 

TOTAL

=

2.Next the starting wattages of any appliances and/or tools that will start and stop during operation.

 

 

 

Running Watts

Starting Watts

Example 2:

Small Refrigerator

500 Watts

2000 Watts

 

TOTAL

=

500 Watts

2000 Watts

3.The running wattage of examples 1 & 2 totals 1150 watts. The starting wattage of the small refrigerator is 2000 watts which is 1500 watts more than the running watts. Take this difference of 1500 starting watts from the refrigerator and add to the total running watts of 1150.

Example 3:

 

1500

Starting Watts

 

 

1150

Running Watts

TOTAL

=

2650

Total Watts

Generator must have a maximum capacity of at least 2650 watts.

17 — ENG

WATTAGE CALCULATIONS

STARTING WATTAGE REQUIREMENTS

1.Some appliances and tools will list on the motor name plate the starting and running voltage and amperage requirements. Use the following formula to convert voltage and amperage to wattage:

Volts X Amp = Watts

120 volts x 10 amps = 1200 watts

2.To determine the approximate starting wattage requirement for most appliances and tools with inductive type motors, multiply the wattage that was calculated by 2 to 4 times to assure adequate generator capacity. If the nameplate information is not available use the values on the following chart as a guide.

3.Remember that the starting and running wattage for resistive loads are the same. (Example: a 100 watt light bulb requires only 100 watts to start.) Most resistive loadswill be listed in wattage.
