Preparation for Long-Term Storage of a Gasoline Generator


1.Store the generator in a well-ventilated area with low humidity.

2.Disconnect the fuel hose and carefully drain any remaining gasoline from the fuel tank and filter cup. Leaving gasoline in the tank for an extended period can damage it and make restarting difficult.

3.Optionally, loosen the drain screw on the carburetor float chamber to remove any residual fuel, or run the generator in a no-load state until it runs out of fuel.

4.Disconnect the battery terminals and check the battery's electrolyte level. If necessary, add distilled water.

5.Change the engine oil. Used engine oil can produce deposits, and prolonged inactivity can lead to sediment buildup, which may damage engine components.

6.Check for any loose screws and bolts, and tighten them if necessary.

7.Use an oil-soaked cloth to clean the generator thoroughly. If needed, you can apply a rust inhibitor. Do not use water to clean the generator.


Gasoline Generator Usage Guidelines:

1.For the first use, change the engine oil after 18-20 hours of operation.

2.Depending on usage frequency, change the engine oil every 80-100 hours.

3.Avoid overloading the generator.

4.The exhaust from the generator is toxic; do not use it in enclosed spaces. Always operate it in well-ventilated areas.

5.Do not use the generator in rainy or snowy conditions. If necessary, implement rain and ventilation measures.

6.Do not touch the generator during operation to prevent burns or electric shock.

7.When refueling, be careful not to allow dust, dirt, moisture, or other contaminants to mix with gasoline. If gasoline spills, clean it up before starting the engine.

8.Use specialized generator engine oil. Check the oil level using the dipstick, and it should be between the mesh marks, ideally slightly above the middle. After adding oil, recheck the level one minute later to ensure it's appropriate.

9.The engine has an oil pressure sensor. If there's insufficient oil, the generator won't start correctly. If there's too much oil, it won't function properly. Use the drain plug to remove excess oil if needed.

Following these recommendations will help you maintain your gasoline generator, whether for regular use or long-term storage, ensuring its reliability and longevity.
