Fire or explosion can cause severe burns or death. Gasoline and gasoline vapors: Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive. Gasoline can cause a fire or explosion if ignited. Gasoline is a liquid fuel but it's vapors can ignite. Gasoline is a skin irritant and needs to be cleaned up immediately if spilled on skin or clothes. Gasoline has a distinctive odor, this will help detect potential leaks quickly. In any petroleum gas fire, flames should not be extinguished unless by doing so the fuel supply valve can be turned OFF. This is because if a fire is extinguished and a supply of fuel is not turned OFF, then an explosion hazard could be created. Gasoline expands or contracts with ambient temperatures. Never fill the gasoline tank to full capacity, as gasoline needs room to expand if temperatures rise. LPG: LPG is highly flammable and explosive. LPG is under pressure and can cause a fire or explosion if ignited. LPG is heavier than air and can settle in low places while dissipating. LPG has a distinctive odor added to help detect potential leaks quickly. In any petroleum gas fire, flames should not be extinguished unless by doing so the fuel supply valve is turned OFF. This is because if a fire is extinguished and a supply of fuel is not turned OFF, then an explosion hazard could be created. When exchanging LPG cylinders, check that the cylinder valve is of the same type. Always keep the LPG cylinder in an upright position. LPG will burn skin if it comes in contact with it. Keep any and all LPG away from skin at all times. IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS When adding or removing gasoline: DO NOT light or smoke cigarettes. Turn the generator off and let cool for at least two minutes before removing the gasoline cap. Always loosen the cap slowly to relieve pressure in the tank. Only fill or drain gasoline outdoors in a well-ventilated area. DO NOT pump gasoline directly into the generator at the gas station. Always use an approved container to transfer the fuel to the generator. DO NOT overfill the gasoline tank. Always keep gasoline away from sparks, open flames, pilot lights, heat and other sources of ignition. When starting the generator: DO NOT attempt to start a damaged generator. Always check that the gasoline cap, air filter, spark plug, fuel lines and exhaust system are properly in place. Always allow spilled gasoline to evaporate fully before attempting to start the engine. Always be certain that the generator is resting firmly on level ground. When operating the generator: DO NOT move or tip the generator during operation. When transporting or servicing the generator: Always check that the fuel valve is in the OFF position and the gasoline tank is empty. For LPG compatible models, check that the LPG cylinder is disconnected and stored securely away from the generator. Disconnect the spark plug wire. When storing the generator: Store away from sparks, open flames, pilot lights, heat and other sources of ignition. Do not store generator, gasoline or LPG cylinders near furnaces, water heaters, or any other appliances that produce heat or have automatic ignitions. DANGER NEVER place a gasoline container, gasoline tank, LPG cylinder or any combustible material in the path of the exhaust stream during operation of the engine. WARNING Never use a gasoline container, gasoline tank, LPG connector hose, LPG cylinder or any other fuel item that is broken, cut, torn or damaged. 7 200994 - 4650W DUAL FUEL INVERTER GENERATOR Lithium-ion Battery Safety Electrolyte inside the battery is harmful to skin and eyes. If the battery leaks and electrolyte gets in your eyes, do not rub them. Instead, rinse them with clean running water and immediately seek medical attention. If left untreated, electrolyte can cause permanent eye injury. When using the generator: Do not use the battery near sources of high heat or fire. Do not reverse or short-circuit the positive (+) or negative (-) terminals. Do not use the battery in parallel or in series. Do not discharge battery in temperatures below 14°F (-10°C) or above 104°F (40°C). When charging the battery: Do not charge the battery with voltage over 15.0V and current over 1.6A. Do not charge the battery below 32°F (0°C) or above 113°F (45°C). Always remove from the battery cradle before charging separately. After charging, leave the battery sitting for 0.5 to 1 hour before checking the voltage. If the voltage is less than 12.8V, additional charging is necessary. If the battery becomes hot to the touch, stop charging. Allow battery to cool before resuming. IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS When storing the generator/battery: Always check that the battery connectors between the inverter and the battery are unplugged and placed away from the battery terminals. Always inspect the battery case for obvious signs of physical damage or warpage. Do not store the battery near sources of high heat or fire. Store the battery in a dry, well ventilated area between -4°F (-20°C) and 104°F (40°C). Do not store the battery when discharged to 20% or less state of charge (SOC). The battery should be charged for 10~30 mins every 180 days when in storage, to keep the battery in good condition. In case of battery damage: If damaged, battery may emit hazardous fumes.

DO NOT pump gasoline directly into the generator at the pump. Use an approved fuel container to transfer the gasoline to the generator. DO NOT fill tank indoors. DO NOT fill tank when the engine is running or hot. WARNING Pouring gasoline too fast through the fuel screen may result in gasoline splashing over the generator and operator while filling. NOTICE The generator engine works well with 10% or less ethanol blended gasoline. When using ethanol-gasoline blends there are some issues worth noting: Ethanol-gasoline blends can absorb more water than gasoline alone. These ethanol blends can eventually separate, leaving water or a watery goo in the tank, fuel valve and carburetor. The compromised gasoline can be drawn into the carburetor and cause damage to the engine and/or create potential hazards. If a fuel stabilizer is used, confirm that it is formulated to work with ethanol-gasoline blends. Any damages or hazards caused by using ethanol blended gasoline higher than 10% by volume, improperly stored gasoline, and/or improperly formulated stabilizers, are not covered by manufacturer's warranty. It is advisable to always shut off the gasoline supply and run the engine to starvation after each use. See Storage instructions for extended non-use. 20 200994 - 4650W DUAL FUEL INVERTER GENERATOR Add Fuel: Propane (LPG) DANGER NEVER place the LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) connector hose OR LPG cylinder tank in the path of the muffler exhaust gas stream of the generator during engine operation. 1.

NOTICE Accumulation of frost on LPG cylinder and regulators is common during operation and normally is not an indication of a problem. As LPG vaporizes and travels from the cylinder to the generator engine it expands. The amount of frost that forms can be affected by the size of the cylinder, the amount of LPG being used, the humidity of the air and other operating conditions. In unusual situations this frost may eventually restrict the flow of LPG to the generator resulting in deteriorating performance. For example, if the cylinder temperature is reduced to a very low level then the rate at which the LPG vaporizes is also reduced and may not provide sufficient flow to the engine. This is not an indication of a problem with the generator but only a problem with the flow of LPG from the cylinder. If generator performance seems to be deteriorating at the same time that ice formation is observed on tank valve, hose or regulator then some actions may be taken to eliminate this symptom. In these rare situations it can be helpful to reduce or eliminate the cold fuel system effects by doing one of the following: Exchanging fuel cylinders to allow the first cylinder to warm up, repeating as necessary. Placing the cylinder at the end of the generator near the handle, where engine fan air flows out from the generator. This air is slightly heated by flowing over the engine. The cylinder should not be placed in the path of the muffler outlet. The cylinder can be temporarily warmed by pouring warm water over the top of the cylinder. 26 200994 - 4650W DUAL FUEL INVERTER GENERATOR OPERATION Connecting Electrical Loads Let the engine stabilize and warm up for a few minutes after starting. Plug in and turn on the desired 120 or 240 (if applicable) Volt AC single phase, 60 Hz electrical loads. DO NOT connect 3-phase loads to the generator. DO NOT overload the generator. WARNING Always remember to plug your appliances directly into the generator and do not plug the generator power cord into any electrical outlet or connect to the circuit breaker panel in your home. Connecting a generator to your home's electric utility company's power lines, or to another power source, called `backfeeding' is a dangerous practice that is illegal in many states and municipalities. This action if done incorrectly could damage your generator, appliances and could cause serious injury or death to you or a utility worker when attempting to restore power during an outage occurrence in the neighborhood who may then unexpectedly encounter high voltage on the utility line and suffer a fatal shock. Whether injuries occur or not, if installed incorrectly and not to applicable laws and codes, you may be subject to fines or the utility company may disconnect your home power should this practice be found in your home. If the generator will be connected to a building electrical system, those connections must isolate the generator power from the utility power. You are responsible for ensuring your generator's electricity does not backfeed into the electric utility power lines. These connections must comply with all applicable laws and codes Consult your local utility company or a qualified electrician to properly install this connection. Do Not Overload Generator Capacity Follow these simple steps to calculate the running and starting watts necessary for your purposes: 1. Select the electrical devices you plan on running at the same time. 2. Total the running watts of these items. This is the amount of power you need to keep your items running. 3. Identify the highest starting wattage of all devices identified in step 1. Add this number to the number calculated in step 2. Starting wattage is the surge of power needed to start some electric driven equipment. Following the steps listed under "Power Management" will guarantee that only one device will be starting at a time. 4. If the generator power output is cut off due to an overload condition indicated by the AC overload blinking light, lower the load by unplugging one or more items, then press the AC overload reset button before restarting the generator for continued normal operation. Power Management Use the following formula to convert voltage and amperage to watts: Volts × Amps = Watts To prolong the life of your generator and attached devices, follow these steps to add electrical load: 1. Start the generator with no electrical load attached. 2. Allow the engine to run for several minutes to get up to temperature. 3. Make sure all circuit breakers are set to the run position. 4. Plug in and turn on the first item. It is best to attach the item with the largest load first. 5. Allow the engine to stabilize. 6. Plug in and turn on the next item. 7. Allow the engine to stabilize. 8. Repeat steps 5-6 for each additional item. NOTICE Never exceed the specified capacity when adding loads to the generator. Eco (Economy) Mode The Eco Mode button can be activated to turn on economy control in order to minimize fuel consumption and noise while operating the unit during times of reduced electrical output. Eco Mode allows the engine speed to idle during periods of non-use. The engine speed returns to normal when an electrical load is connected. When the economy switch is off, the engine runs at normal speed continuously. 27 200994 - 4650W DUAL FUEL INVERTER GENERATOR OPERATION WARNING Do not start the vehicle while the battery charging cable is connected and the generator is running.

ALWAYS make sure engine and muffler are cooled down before the generator can be handled safely (typically 15-30 minutes). Operation at High Altitude The density of air at high altitudes is lower than at sea level. Engine power is reduced as the air mass and air-fuel ratio decrease. Engine power and generator output will be reduced approximately 3½% for every 1000 ft. of elevation above sea level. At high altitudes increased exhaust emissions can also result due to the increased enrichment of the air fuel ratio. Other high altitude issues can include hard starting, increased fuel consumption and spark plug fouling. To alleviate high altitude issues other than the natural power loss, CPE can provide a high altitude carburetor main jet. The alternative main jet and installation instructions can be obtained by contacting our Technical Support Team. Installation instructions are also available in the Technical Bulletin area of the CPE website. The part number and recommended minimum altitude for the application of the high altitude carburetor main jet is listed in the following table. In order to select the correct high altitude main jet it is necessary to identify the carburetor model. For this purpose, a code is stamped on the side of the carburetor. Select the correct high altitude jet part number corresponding to the carburetor code found on your particular carburetor. 29 200994 - 4650W DUAL FUEL INVERTER GENERATOR Carb. Code 16100Z3R031000A0 High Alt. Jet Part Number 16161-Z152210-00A0 16161-Z152010-00A0 Min. Altitude 3000 ft. (914 m) 6000 ft. (1829 m) WARNING Operation using the alternative main jet at elevations lower than the recommended minimum altitude can damage the engine.
