Generac Generator

Before you start:

1. Check fuel levels for oil and gas
Always make sure you fill up your generator with FRESH gasoline. Ethanol in the gas will absorb water over time. Stale gasoline not only makes it harder or impossible to start, but can damage the engine.

2. Remove any cords plugged into the generator
Before starting the generator, disconnect all cords. You don’t want any load attached during the startup.

Start using Generator:

1. Turn fuel valve on
Flip the fuel valve on. When the fuel valve is released, fuel travels to the carburetor to help the generator start.

2. Turn choke on
Move the choke rod Out toward you. This makes it easier for the engine to start running.

3. Turn ignition (or engine switch) on
Many generators require you to flip the switch to turn the engine on. This is essentially an engine switch that will flip on before you pull the recoil cord. If your generator has an electric start button, you can use that to start the generator instead of the recoil cord option outlined below.

4. Pull recoil cord
When you pull the recoil cord, you are actually starting the engine. Pull the recoil cord until you feel a bit of resistance and then let it go back. If the engine doesn’t start, try pulling the cord again.PRO TIP: If the engine doesn’t start, move the choke to “half run” and pull the recoil cord again.

5. After the engine starts, move engine choke to “run”
When the engine has been running for a few moments, you can move the choke back inside to the “run” position

6.  Make sure Circuit Breaker in “ON”
