BEFORE OPERATION ARE YOU READY TO GET STARTED? Your safety is your responsibility. A little time spent in preparation will significantly reduce your risk of injury. Knowledge Read and understand this manual. Know what the controls do and how to operate them. Familiarize yourself with the generator and its operation before you begin using it. Know how to quickly shut off the generator in case of an emergency. If the generator is being used to power appliances, be sure that they do not exceed the generator’s load rating . IS YOUR GENERATOR READY TO GO? For your safety, and to maximize the service life of your equipment, it is very important to take a few moments before you operate the generator to check its condition. Be sure to take care of any problem you find, or have your servicing To prevent a possible fire, keep the generator at least 1 meter away from building walls and other equipment during operation. Do not place flammable objects close to the engine. Before beginning your preoperation checks, be sure the generator is on a level surface and the engine switch is in the OFF position. Check the Engine Check the oil level (see page 19). A low oil level will cause the Oil Alert system to shut down the engine. Check the air cleaner (see page 21).A dirty air cleaner element will restrict air flow to the carburetor, reducing engine and generator performance. Check the fuel level (see page 18).Starting with a full tank will help to eliminate or reduce operating interruptions for refueling. Check the Battery Check the fuel electrolyte level (see page 24). If the electrolyte level is below the LOWER level, sulfation and battery plate damage will occur. BATTERY 10 OPERATION SAFE OPERATING PRECAUTIONS Before operating the generator for the first time, please review the GENERATOR SAFETY section and the chapter titled BEFORE OPERATION. For your safety, do not operate the generator in an enclosed area such as a garage. Your generator’s exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide gas that can collect rapidly in an enclosed area and cause illness or death. Before connecting an AC appliance or power cord to the generator: ● Use grounded 3 prong extension cords for single phase generator and 5 prong extension cords for three generator, tools, and appliances, or double insulated tools and appliances. ● Inspect cords and plugs, and replace if damaged. ● Make sure that the appliance is in good working order. Faulty appliances or power cords can create a potential for electric shock. ● Make sure the electrical rating of the tool or appliance does not exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum may be used for no more than 30 minutes. ● Operate the generator at least 1 meter away from buildings and other equipment. ● Do not operate the generator in an enclosed structure.

OPERATION AC Applications Before connecting an appliance or power cord to the generator: ● Make sure that it is in good working order. Faulty appliances or Power cords can create a potential for electrical shock. ● If an appliance begins to operate abnormally, becomes sluggish, or stops suddenly, turn it off immediately. Disconnect the appliance, and determine whether the problem is the appliance or the rated load capacity of the generator has been exceeded. ● Make sure that the electrical rating of the tool or appliance does not exceed that of the generator. Never exceed the maximum power rating of the generator. Power levels between rated and maximum may be used for no more than 30 minutes. NOTICE Substantial overloading will open the circuit breaker. Exceeding the time limit for maximum power operation or slightly overloading the generator may not switch the circuit breaker OFF, but will shorten the service life of the generator. Limit operation requiring maximum power to 30 minutes. Maximum power is: 60Hz 15 kVA (GAS); 1 3.5 kVA (LPG); For continuous operation (longer than 30 minutes), do not exceed the rated power. Rated power is: 60Hz 12 kVA(GAS); 1 1 kVA (LPG); High Altitude Operation At high altitude, the standard carburetor air/fuel mixture will be too rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will increase. A very rich mixture will also foul the spark plug and cause hard starting. Operation at an altitude that differs from that at which this engine was certified, for extended periods of time, may increase emissions. High altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications to the carburetor. If you always operate your generator at altitudes above 5,000 feet (1,500 meters), have your dealer perform this carburetor modification. This engine, when operated at high altitude with the carburetor modifications for high altitude use, will meet each emission standard throughout its useful life. Even with carburetor modification, engine horsepower will decrease about 3.5% for each 1,000-foot (300-meter) increase in altitude. The effect of altitude on horsepower will be greater than this if no carburetor modification is made. 14 OPERATION The total power requirements (VA) of all appliances connected must be considered. Appliance and power tool manufacturers usually list rating information near the model number or serial number. STANDBY POWER Connections to a Building’s Electrical System Your generator can supply power to a building’s electrical system. If the generator will be used as an alternative to utility company power, an isolation switch must be installed to disconnect the utility lines from the building when the generator is connected. Installation must be performed by a qualified electrician and must comply with all applicable laws and electrical codes. In some areas, generators are required by law to be registered with local utility companies. Check local regulations for proper registration and use procedures. System Ground THIS generators have a system ground that connects the generator frame components to the ground terminals in the AC output receptacles. The system ground is not connected to the AC neutral wire. If the generator is tested with a receptacle tester, it will not show the same ground circuit condition as for a home receptacle. ● Special Requirements In some areas, generators are required to be registered with local utility companies. If the generator is used at a construction site, there may be additional regulations that must be observed. 15 SERVICING YOUR GENERATOR THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTENANCE Good maintenance is essential for safe, economical, and trouble free operation. It will also help reduce air pollution. To help you properly care for your generator, the following pages include a maintenance schedule, routine inspection procedures, and simple maintenance procedures using basic hand tools. Other service tasks that are more difficult or require special tools are best handled by professionals and are normally performed by a THIS technician or other qualified mechanic. The maintenance schedule applies to normal operating conditions. If you operate your generator under unusual conditions, such as sustained high load or high temperature operation, or use it in dusty conditions, consult your servicing dealer for recommendations applicable to your individual needs and use. Remember that your servicing dealer knows your generator best and is fully equipped to maintain and repair it. MAINTENANCE SAFETY Some of the most important safety precautions follow. However, we cannot warn you of every conceivable hazard that can arise in performing maintenance. Only you can decide whether or not you should perform a given task. Safety Precautions Make sure the engine is off before you begin any maintenance or repairs. This will eliminate several potential hazards: ∎ Carbon monoxide poisoning from engine exhaust. Be sure there is adequate ventilation whenever you operate the engine. ∎ Burns from hot parts. Let the engine and exhaust system cool before touching. ∎ Injury from moving parts. Do not run the engine unless instructed to do so. 16 SERVICING YOUR GENERATOR ● Read the instructions before you begin, and make sure you have the tools and skills required. ● To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, be careful when working around gasoline. Use only a nonflammable solvent, not gasoline, to clean parts. Keep cigarettes, sparks, and flames away from all fuel related parts. MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE NOTE: (*) Replace the paper element only. (1) Service more frequently when used industry areas. (2) These items should be serviced by your servicing dealer, unless you have the proper tools and are mechanically proficient. Refer to our shop manual for service procedures. (3) For commercial use, log hours of operation to determine proper maintenance intervals. Failure to follow this maintenance schedule could result in nonwarrantable failures. REFUELING With the engine stopped, check the fuel gauge. Refill the fuel tank if the fuel level is low. 17 * SERVICING YOUR GENERATOR OIL GAUGE OIL TANK CAP EMPTY FULL Refuel in a well ventilated area before starting the engine. If the engine has been running, allow it to cool. Refuel carefully to avoid spilling fuel. Do not fill the fuel tank above the upper limit mark (red) on the fuel strainer. Never refuel the engine inside a building where gasoline fumes may reach flames or sparks. Keep gasoline away from appliance pilot lights, barbecues, electric appliances, power tools, etc. Spilled fuel is not only a fire hazard, it causes environmental damage. Wipe up spills immediately. NOTICE Fuel can damage paint and plastic. Be careful not to spill fuel when filling your fuel tank. Damage caused by spilled fuel is not covered under warranty. NOTE: Gasoline spoils very quickly depending on factors such as light, exposure, temperature and time. In worst cases, gasoline can be contaminated within 30days. Using contaminated gasoline can seriously damage the engine (carburetor clogged, valve stuck). Such damage due to spoiled fuel is disallowed from coverage by the warranty. To avoid this please strictly follow these recommendations: ● Only use specified gasoline . ● Use fresh and clean gasoline. ● To slow deterioration, keep gasoline in a certified fuel container. ● If long storage (more than 30 days) is foreseen, drain fuel tank and carburetor (see page 27 ). FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS Use automotive unleaded gasoline with a Research Octane Number of 91 or higher (a Pump Octane Number of 86 or higher). Never use stale or contaminated gasoline or an oil/gasoline mixture. Avoid getting dirt or water in the fuel tank. 18 SERVICING YOUR GENERATOR Gasolines Containing Alcohol If you decide to use a gasoline containing alcohol (gasohol), be sure it’s octane rating is at least as high as that recommended by this. There are two types of ‘‘gasohol’’: one containing ethanol, and the other containing methanol. Do not use gasohol that contains more than 10% ethanol. Do not use gasoline containing methanol (methyl or wood alcohol) that does not also contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors for methanol. Never use gasoline containing more than 5% methanol, even if it has cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors. NOTE: ● Fuel system damage or engine performance problems resulting from the use of fuels that contain alcohol is not covered under the warranty. THIS cannot endorse the use of fuels containing methanol since evidence of their suitability is as yet incomplete. ● Before buying fuel from an unfamiliar station, try to find out If the fuel contains alcohol, if it does, confirm the type and percentage of alcohol used. If you notice any undesirable operating symptoms while using a gasoline that contains alcohol, or one that you think contains alcohol, switch to a gasoline that you know does not contain alcohol. ENGINE OIL LEVEL CHECK Check the engine oil level with the generator on a level surface and the engine stopped. 1. Remove the oil level dipstick and wipe it clean. 2. Fully insert the dipstick, then remove it to check the oil level. 3. If the level is near or below the lower limit mark on the dipstick, open the maintenance cover to access the oil filler cap.

The following steps will help to keep rust and corrosion from impairing your generator’s function and appearance, and will make the engine easier to start when you use the generator again. Cleaning Wipe the generator with a moist cloth. After the generator has dried, touch up any damaged paint, and coat other areas that may rust with a light film of oil. Fuel Gasoline will oxidize and deteriorate in storage. Old gasoline will cause hard starting, and it leaves gum deposits that clog the fuel system. If the gasoline in your generator deteriorates during storage, you may need to have the carburetor and other fuel system components serviced or replaced. NOTE: Gasoline spoils very quickly depending on factors such as light exposure, temperature and time. In worst cases, gasoline can be contaminated within 30days. Using contaminated gasoline can seriously damage the engine (carburetor clogged, valve stuck). Such damage due to spoiled fuel is disallowed from coverage by the warranty. To avoid this please strictly follow these recommendations: ● Only use specified gasoline . ● Use fresh and clean gasoline. ● To slow deterioration, keep gasoline in a certified fuel container. ● If long storage (more than 30days) is foreseen, drain fuel tank and carburetor (see page 27). You can extend fuel storage life by adding a gasoline stabilizer that is formulated for that purpose, or you can avoid fuel deterioration problems by draining the fuel tank and carburetor. Adding a Gasoline Stabilizer to Extend Fuel Storage Life When adding a gasoline stabilizer, fill the fuel tank with fresh gasoline. If only partially filled, air in the tank will promote fuel deterioration during storage. If you keep a container of gasoline for refueling, be sure that it contains only fresh gasoline. 1. Add gasoline stabilizer following the manufacturer’s instructions. 2. After adding a gasoline stabilizer, run the engine outdoors for 10 minutes to be sure that treated gasoline has replaced the untreated gasoline in the carburetor. 3. Stop the engine, and turn the fuel valve lever to the OFF position. 26 STORAGE STORAGE PROCEDURE 1. Drain the fuel tank and carburetor. a. Unscrew the fuel tank cap, remove the fuel filter, and empty the fuel tank into an approved gasoline container. We recommend using a commercially available gasoline hand pump to empty the tank. Do not use an electric pump. Reinstall the fuel filter and the fuel tank cap. b. Pull out the carburetor drain tube end under the fan cover of the engine, and place it in a suitable container. c. Loosen the carburetor drain screw. d. Drain the gasoline from the carburetor into the container. e. Tighten the carburetor drain screw securely. 2. Change the engine oil (refer to page 20). 3. Remove the spark plugs (see page 23). 4. Pour a table spoon (5-10cc) of clean engine oil into each cylinder. 5. Turn the engine for a few seconds by turning the engine switch to the START position to distribute the oil in the cylinders. 6. Reinstall the spark plugs. 7. Remove the battery and store it in a cool, dry place. Recharge it once a month. 8. Cover the generator to keep out dust. 27 STORAGE STORAGE PRECAUTIONS If your generator will be stored with gasoline in the fuel tank and carburetor, it is important to reduce the hazard of gasoline vapor ignition. Select a well ventilated storage area away from any appliance that operates with a flame, such as a furnace, water heater, or clothes dryer. Also avoid any area with a spark producing electric motor, or where power tools are operated. If possible, avoid storage areas with high humidity, because that promotes rust and corrosion. Unless all fuel has been drained from the fuel tank, leave the fuel valve lever in the OFF position to reduce the possibility of leakage. Place the generator on a level surface. Tilting can cause fuel or oil leakage. With the engine and exhaust system cool, cover the generator to keep out dust. A hot engine and exhaust system can ignite or melt some materials. Do not use sheet plastic as a dust cover. A nonporous cover will trap moisture around the generator, promoting rust and corrosion. REMOVAL FROM STORAGE Check your generator as described in the BEFORE OPERATION chapter of this manual. If the fuel was drained during to rage preparation, fill the tank with fresh gasoline. If you keep a container of gasoline for refueling, be sure that it contains only fresh gasoline. Gasoline oxidizes and deteriorates overtime, causing hard starting. 28 TRANSPORTING If the generator has been running, allow the engine to cool for at least 15 minutes before loading the generator on the transport vehicle. A hot engine and exhaust system can burn you and can ignite some materials. Keep the generator level when transporting to reduce the possibility of fuel leakage. Move the fuel valve lever to the OFF position. When using ropes or tied owns traps to secure the generator for transportation, be sure to only use the frame bars as attachment points. Do not fasten ropes or straps to any portions of the generator body. 29 TAKING CARE OF UNEXPECTED PROBLEMS Engine Will Not Start Possible Cause Correction 1. Check control positions Fuel valve lever OFF. Turn lever ON. Choke OPEN. Move to CLOSED Engine switch OFF. Turn engine switch to ON. 2. Check fuel Out of fuel. Refuel (p.18). Bad fuel; generator stored without treating or draining gasoline, or refueled with bad gasoline. Drain fuel tank and carburetor (p.27).Refuel with fresh gasoline(p.18). 3. Check engine oil level. Low oil level caused Oil Alert to stop engine. Add oil (p.20). Turn engine switch to OFF and restart the engine. 4. Remove and inspect spark plug. Spark plug faulty, fouled, or improperly gapped. Gap, or replace spark plug (p.23). Spark plug wet with fuel (flooded engine). Dry and reinstall spark plug. 5. Take generator to an authorized THIS servicing dealer, or refer to shop manual. Fuel filter restricted, carburetor malfunction, ignition malfunction, valves stuck etc. Replace or repair faulty components as necessary. Engine Lacks Power Possible cause Correction 1. Check air filter. Air filter restricted. Clean or replace air filter (p.22) 2. Check fuel. Bad fuel; generator stored without treating or draining gasoline, or refueled with bad gasoline. Drain fuel tank and carburetor (p.27). Refuel with fresh gasoline (p.18) 3. Take generator to an authorized THIS servicing dealer, or refer to shop manual. Fuel filter restricted, carburetor malfunction, ignition malfunction, valves stuck etc. Replace or repair faulty components as necessary. 30 TAKING CARE OF UNEXPECTED PROBLEMS No Power at the AC Receptacles Possible cause Correction 1. Check circuit breaker. Circuit breaker left in the OFF position after starting. Switch circuit breaker ON. 2. Check the power tool or appliance at a known good AC power source. Faulty power tool or appliance. Replace or repair power tool or appliance. Stop and restart the engine. 3. Take generator to an authorized THIS servicing dealer, or refer to shop manual. Faulty generator. Replace or repair faulty components as necessary. 31 TECHNICAL INFORMATION CARBURETOR MODIFICATION FOR HIGH ALTITUDE OPERATION At high altitude, he standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will be too rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will increase. A very rich mixture will also foul the spark plugs and cause hard starting. Operation at an altitude that differs from that at which this engine was certified, for extended periods of time, may increase emissions. High altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications to the carburetor. If you always operate your generator at altitudes above 1,500 meters, have your authorized THIS servicing dealer perform this carburetor modification. Even with carburetor modification, engine horsepower will decrease about 3.5% for each 300 meter increase in altitude. NOTICE When the carburetor has been modified for high altitude operation, the air/fuel mixture will be too lean for low altitude use. Operation at altitudes below 1,500 meters with a modified carburetor may cause the engine to overheat and result in serious engine damage. For use at Low altitudes, have your servicing dealer return the carburetor to original factory specifications. 32 TECHNICAL INFORMATION SPECIFICATIONS Dimensions Model PG15KVTWB Length 34.25 Inches Width 23 Inches Height 28.5 Inches Dry mass(weight)* 474 lbs. *with battery Engine Model DHTLG720E Engine Type 4-stroke,overheadvalve,2cylinder Displacement 713cc Bore & Stroke 80*71mm Cooling System Forced air Ignition System Transistorized magneto ignition Oil Capacity With oil filter replacement approximatly 1.6L Fuel Tank Capacity 40L Spark Plug F7TC(NHSPLD) Battery 12V/21AH Generator Model Single-phase AC output Rated voltage 120V/240V Rated frequency 60Hz Rated Ampere 100A/50A 91.6A/45.8A Rated output 12kW(GAS) 11kW(LPG) Maximum output 15kW(GAS) 13.5kW(LPG) Power factor 1 Tune up Specifications ITEM SPECIFICATION MAINTENANCE Spark plug gap 0.7-0.8mm Refer to page: 23 Valve clearance(cold) IN:0.08-0.12mm EX:0.13-0.17mm See your authorized dealer Other specifications No other adjustments needed.
