Have you just bought your own generator or do you already own one? Remember that the generator, whatever its application is, once...
On the frame, you will find various stickers applied, let’s begin to see them in detail.
⦁ Read the use and maintenance manual very carefully before using the generator set
⦁ Do not underestimate this simple notice, reading the manual is very important!
⦁ Before proceeding with any work on the generator set, make sure to disconnect all the power supply. Remove the cables from the battery and battery charger. Disconnect the generator set from the Grid, in case of stationary installation.
⦁ Attention: the generator can start automatically. Before working on the generator set turn it always off from its control panel.
⦁ The control panel can be powered by multiple sources such as battery charger, preheating system or automatic panel: make sure to disconnect all power sources before carrying out any operation or maintenance on the generator set.
⦁ Do not clean your generator with thinners, alcohol, acids or other aggressive products. Do not use pressure washers on electrical and electronic components such as alternator, control panel, engine electronic control units, etc…
⦁ Do not climb on the radiator, engine, alternator, canopy, and control panel of the generator set
⦁ Dangerous voltages may be present inside the control panel and the alternator even when the generator is off.
⦁ Do not operate the generating set in the rain or in humid environments and do not touch it with wet hands or feet. It could cause electrical shock!
⦁ Pay close attention to the connections or extension cables from the generator to the load, which it is connected to. Make sure they are not crushed under heavy parts or in contact with vibrating parts as they could break causing flames or short circuits.
⦁ Make sure to turn off the generator before refueling, do not overfill to avoid spillage and once refueled, tighten the tank cap.
⦁ Do not operate the generating set near flammable materials such as diesel or petrol as they are highly explosive. Do not smoke near the generator
⦁ NEVER operate the generator in any enclosed or narrow area where free flow of the air is restricted such as garage, tunnel, basement, quarry, etc...
⦁ During operation, generator's engine gives off deadly carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide is highly toxic, odorless and colorless. It can cause severe seasickness, fainting and in some cases death.
⦁ Before operating your generator make sure it is properly grounded to a suitable ground rod driven into the ground
⦁ Battery fluid is corrosive and can be extremely harmful to the skin. Always use protective gloves and use extreme caution when pouring the liquid, being careful to avoid spillage.
⦁ Do not touch the engine or other hot parts when the generator is running or immediately after operations.
⦁ Never operate the generator set with heat shields or guards removed.
⦁ Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot or running. Steam escaping or hot coolant can cause severe burns and injury.
⦁ Coolant is toxic.
⦁ Always refill in a ventilated area, while the generator is stopped and engine cold. Avoid direct contact and do not breathe the vapors
⦁ Keep fingers, hands, hair and clothing away from all moving parts to prevent injury.
