DAILY WALK AROUND INSPECTION
Check the engine oil level daily before starting engine. DO NOT start the generator if the oil level is below the ADD mark on the dipstick. The normal operating level for the engine oil is anywhere in the crosshatch pattern between the FULL and ADD markings. Add oil to the engine only if the level is below the ADD mark on the bottom of the crosshatch pattern. DO NOT OVERFILL the crankcase. Consult the engine OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL for the proper grade of oil, including special operating conditions
Check the coolant level daily. The coolant is checked by visually inspecting the level in the coolant overflow jug, located near the radiator. The normal operating level is anywhere between the FULL and ADD markings on the overflow jug, with the optimum level noted as “NORMAL RANGE”. Coolant may be added directly to the overflow jug WHEN THE ENGINE IS STOPPED AND COMPLETELY COOL. Consult the engine OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL for coolant recommendations and proper mixture.
Visually inspect the fan belt for cracks, fraying, stretching, and verify the belt is properly seated in the pulley grooves. Replace the belt according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Note: At the 500 hour/12 month service interval, it is recommended that the belt be removed and checked for wear. While the belt is removed, inspect pulleys and bearings. Rotate and feel for hard turning or unusual sounds. If pulleys or bearings need replacement, contact the engine manufacturer.
NOTICE! Failure to perform a daily inspection may result in serious damage to the prime mover.
