  2. Let the generator engine continue to run for 5 minutes and then set the generator functions to off using the selector switch of the generator's controller.
  3. If you have turned the generator off to check the oil level, wait 10 minutes before checking.  If the oil level is low, refill with the oil type recommended by the manufacturer, be careful not to overfill.
  4. When you are ready to restart the generator, switch the selector switch of the controller to AUTO and wait for the generator to start.  After the engine has started and is running, wait 30 seconds to allow the engine to stabilize and then turn the generator circuit breaker back on.
