Follow these simple guidelines and assure yourself a safe experience with your power generator:
- Be careful that all necessary electrical grounding procedures are followed during each and every use. Improper grounding can be fatal.
- Do not operate the generator near flammable substances that could result in a possible explosion.
- Several parts of the generator may become extremely hot during and for some time after operation. Keep combustible materials well away from the generator.
- Always operate the generator in a well ventilated area. Never operate a generator indoors.
- Inspect all wiring and/or extension cords from the generator to the connected devices. Damaged or worn out cords can lead to a possible fire or electrical shock. Replace any damaged or worn cords immediately.
- Do not operate a generator in rain or damp areas or with wet hands. This could lead to the operator suffering a severe electrical shock.
- NEVER connect a generator directly to your home wiring system, unless you are using an approved electrical transfer / disconnect switch. This type of switch should only be installed by a licensed electrician.
- When using extension cords outdoors, use only extension cords marked 'For Outdoor Use.'
