Can i run my generator continuously non-stop?
Generators can run continuously as long as maintenance intervals are given. Since gasoline is a highly flammable fuel. Just like fueling a car, you need to stop the generator before fueling. And also give it time to cool down. Besides, it is important to pay attention to the recommended maintenance schedule for your unit. Furthermore, never let the generator run out of fuel while it is under any load. If this happens, it could destroy the connected appliances or cause harm to the generator. Always ensure that your generator is operating properly.
What happens if the generator operates at a low load at all times?
If a generator runs at less than a quarter load at all times; it would result in a decline in the generator’s performance. Therefore, you should try to operate at full load from time to time; to ensure the generator’s long life.
What happens if I overload the generator?
Most generators have circuit breakers to protect engine damage from overloading. If overloaded, the circuit breaker will trip. It will stop the power flow to protect the generator, as well as any connected equipment. It takes about 10 seconds for the breakers to cool down. Then, you should be able to reset them by pressing the breaker button.
Can I start the generator with any applied load?
No, the engine of the generator needs to come up to the proper speed before applying any load. Therefore, doing otherwise may cause damage to your connected appliances.
Can I shut down the generator with the load still on?
No, you must remove any connected appliances before turning the generator off. This prevents any connected appliance from harm that could happen due to slow engine speed.
Can I use the generator with an extension cord?
It is possible to use extension cords. While keeping in mind that a long cord will cause some drop in voltage. As a general rule, the voltage will drop by 2 – 3 volts for a 10-meter cord, 5 – 6 volts for a 20-meter cord, and 8 – 10 volts for the 30-meter cord. Therefore, using a very long cable is not recommended.
How does the fuel valve work?
A device that permits or stops the running of fuel to the engine. Before turning on the generator, you should always keep the fuel valve open. Then it should be directly closed after turning off the generator.
