Maintenance and repair of petrol generator
Replacing the oil and adding new oil
It is very important to maintain the electric motor and ensure its health and function. Replacement of the motor oil based on the specific time limits specified in the engine manual is important.
Also keep in mind that if you buy a new electric motor and work with it, the motor oil must first be replaced after a few hours of operation with the machine, and then you can oil according to the specified time intervals.
Candles and air filters
If the engine inside the engine does not cool properly or the machine is malfunctioning and the engine does not work properly, it will be very difficult to operate and the device will be ineffective, so the health of the plugs and filters and the gasoline engine are very high. It is important.
There are also specific tables for changing the spark plugs and air filters that vary depending on the brand of electric motor you purchase.
Also, depending on how much the generator is working or the engine in a dirty environment with a lot of dust, these time intervals can be changed and reduced.
When checking if the spark plugs are safe and clean, wipe the electrodes with the brush and check the intervals between the spark plugs, and if there are any signs of wear or damage in the spark plugs.
They are also used to clean the filter, usually by removing dust from the filter.
Note: Due to the high impact of the air filter on the life of the electric motor, it is always advisable to replace or replace the air filter when cleaning the service motor to extend its service life.
If the fuel inside the engine compartment is left idle for a long time, switching on and starting the engine will be a huge hassle. For this reason, if you intend to keep the electric motor in place and do not work with it for a long time, be sure to empty the tank.
Note: If the generator is not to be used for more than 30 business days, we recommend that the fuel tank and carburetor be discharged to keep the fuel system clean and that the engine will not be damaged.
Also, be sure to use clean, lead-free fuel when filling the generator fuel tank.
dust, these time intervals can be changed and reduced.
If the generator has a battery, make sure the battery is fully charged before storing the device. A better solution is to buy a battery charger and keep the battery charged.
Keep the battery in a cool, dry place to keep the battery safe, and always keep the terminal clean.
If you have stored the generator in place, we recommend turning it on every 30 days and allowing the machine to operate for a few minutes until all of the engine's internal components are fully lubricated by oil circulation.
Checking and observing the generator
A comprehensive eye observation of the device will help you detect any leaks or damage and repair or replace any defective components before starting the machine.
Safety at work with generator
There are three very important safety considerations when working with the generator:
1) Carbon monoxide emissions and the possibility of poisoning in the absence of proper ventilation
2) the dangers of electricity and electric shock.
3) Dangers of fire and explosion.
Carbon monoxide poisoning
One of the serious hazards when using a generator is carbon monoxide poisoning. Many people die every year due to improper use of the electric motor and severe poisoning. Do not operate a petrol generator in a confined area and in a closed environment.
Note: Carbon monoxide is one of the odorless gases that cannot be seen, so safety precautions should be taken when working with a generator.
When the generators start running, you generate a lot of carbon monoxide at high speeds. Just because you can't detect the presence of gas doesn't mean you're not exposed to it, so be very careful.
Disease, dizziness and weakness of symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure
If you feel uncomfortable using a generator, get out of the room immediately and get into the open air.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include dizziness, illness, and weakness that quickly lead to feelings of disability and death.
Never use a generator at home
Using the electric motor is the only way to protect you and those around you from the outside. Never run an electric motor indoors, in a garage, cellar, basement, cabin, tent or any other enclosed area.
The dangers of working with an electric motor cannot be ignored even in an environment where windows, doors, and ventilation are used to vent gases and one should always be alert to possible hazards and accidents.
Safety tips in installing and setting up the generator
Be sure to install the gasoline engine outdoors. Electric motors should be installed away from doors, windows and valves.
Install a carbon monoxide warning device with a backup battery for your home or office.
Inspect the device and replace the batteries at specified intervals.
Risk of electric shock and electrical damage
Generators are designed to generate a lot of electricity when needed. But if your generator unit is malfunctioning or used incorrectly, the electrical outlet must be in a position to pose a risk of electric shock to you or others around you.
Here are some important tips to help you avoid the risk of electric shock.
Install the generator in a dry place away from rain.
When using the generator, protect it from moisture and dry the generator surface. If possible, use a protective canopy to protect it before starting the electric motor. Be sure to dry your hands thoroughly before starting the generator.
Use the appropriate cable to connect the electric motor.
If you are not able to install the generator directly on the device, you must install the generator in an outdoor area and transfer the electricity through the wire. Make sure the wires connected to the amp and transmitter are compatible.
Also calculate the total power of the devices to be connected to the electric motor, as well as the amount of power required at startup, and select the desired cable accordingly.
It also inspects the cable to ensure it is free from damage, damage or damage.
Never plug it into your home to test the power motor.
Installing a generator at home is very dangerous for practical testing.
Plugging the generator into the home's power supply may also put you at risk of harming anyone who uses the home's power. It can also damage all of your home's electrical appliances and protectors.
Electric Power Take the electric motor to an electrician.
If you are planning to plug the generator into your home electrical wiring, be sure to get a qualified electrician.
You need a proper transmission switch to install the power motor for home wiring, which is designed to meet the local electrical requirements and instructions.
Dangers of fire and explosion
If the fuel is spilled, wipe it off immediately.There is a much higher likelihood of fuel being burnt in the cargo space than fuel properly stored and maintained, even a small spark can lead to an explosion and a fire.
Therefore, as soon as the fuel is spilled, wipe it off immediately.
Do not refuel an electric motor while it is hot.
Make sure the generator is fully cooled before filling the fuel tank.
Turn the power off and allow it to cool for several hours. Refueling an electric motor in a hot state may cause the device to explode.
Store fuel in a safe place.
Keep the engine motor fuel out of the house and properly labeled inside the safety containers.
Never use a gasoline engine in a boat.
The moving boat is very shaky, causing gas and fuel to leak.
For this reason, the smallest spark causes the engine to fire and explode. For this reason, avoid using a generator inside the boat.
What power do we need with a generator?
When it comes to power outages or areas where electricity is deprived, an equipment called an electric motor is a valuable tool to help you.
Here are some tips for choosing the right electric motor.
The generator’s application
Generators provide the electricity you need. When your area is out of power, you can power on your home's essentials or use it while traveling. Generators are also highly efficient at starting construction projects that do not have electricity yet.
By installing this model you can use devices such as computers that you need information at the time of power failure. The model works in such a way that when the power is off, the generator automatically enters the circuit automatically.
For example, if you are watching a great match you will not miss a minute!
Capacity and output voltage control
Earlier models of electric motors produce a fixed power model that may be more than you need, but newer models have added voltage regulating technology that provides constant voltage.
This will reduce the damage to your devices. So make sure that the model you choose has this feature.
Think about how many and what types of devices you want to use for your electric motor so you can choose the right electric motor. To do this, start by:
Technical Information Plate Check the devices for which you want to use an electric motor.
Add up the total power consumption of the device.
Add half the total number of watts consumed to generate the energy needed to start each machine.
Note: If you do not use unnecessary devices such as a TV or radio during a power outage you can get a smaller electric motor. For example, you can set up a kitchen with 1000 watts such as a refrigerator, a TV and some lamps with an electric motor, or a 5000 watt model like a saw, and the more powerful you can turn on more appliances.
Fuel Type: The fuel is propane or natural gas standby generators. Propane fuel is low priced and available. If your emergency generator tank capacity is 250 gallons, you can use it for up to 2 weeks depending on the amount used.
When buying these types of generators that work with natural gas, one thing to keep in mind is that your area's gas pressure is weak or strong. Purchase the appropriate generator depending on the amount of gas pressure.
Installation and embedding
You should note that after installation of these generators you can no longer replace them. So first set it up before installation. These electric motors are usually available in gray, black and brown.
You also need to consider the sound generated by the generator so that it does not make a loud noise so as not to harm other neighbors.
These models of generators usually have a protective frame that protects the generator against wind and rain and is usually made of galvanized steel.
This type of generator generates high heat and is reduced by a water cooling system that includes a fan and radiator.
Portable generator has 2 types of startup systems. 1- Handle 2- Starter.
In the handheld model, the engine starts to look like a lawnmower and a lawnmower, which is illuminated by pulling the handle, but the point is that the system will be ineffective if the weather is bad or necessary.
It is recommended that you start the device by pressing a button.
The device output
The power of your generator is determined by the amount of energy it produces, but the number of outputs it has is also influenced by that amount. Most electric motors typically have 2 or 4 outputs.
For example, if you want to use an electric motor for 2 to 3 devices, an electric motor with 2 outputs is sufficient, but if you want to use more, it is better to provide an electric motor with 4 outputs.
There is a model of electric motors known as welding motors, which combine electric motors and welding machines, which you can use as a welding machine and use electric energy to set up devices.
Portability of generator
If you want to keep the electric motor in the parking lot of your home and use it when needed, it should not be a matter of transportation, but if there are conditions you need to move the electric motor from one place to another.
that will be important. The more powerful the engine is, the higher its weight, and the 4-wheel-drive model will have to be easy to transport.
Type of fuel and time of work
Two types of propane and petrol can be used in portable generators. Propane is known as clean fuel and can stay in the engine's fuel tank without any problems.
In the case of gasoline, it is different in that the gas staying in the tank causes the gas to spoil and damage the internal components of the generator.
The fuel consumption between the two models is higher in terms of fuel consumption than in propane.
Application and safety tips
The small size electric motor is the best option for people who need electricity during their travels and trips, but when using the electric motor in large environments, you should provide a high power motor.
Also, be sure to use an outdoor motor because of the toxic carbon monoxide emissions from the electric motor.
