Once you have received your new Hyundai HY2000Si or HY3000Si inverter generator, you will need to know how to start it properly. The two generators are virtually identically, the only physical difference being the model number on the front panel of the generator. The procedure for setting up and starting the generator is the same for both.
When you receive the generator, along with it in the box you will find a spark plug, spark plug spanner, 12v battery charger lead, small bottle of fuel additive- this is enough sufficient for 10 litres of fuel and is basically a preservative, caravan adapter lead, a full manual, an oil draining tube and a screw driver.
The first step of the procedure is to fill your generator with the 15-40 oil. So firstly you will need to use the screw driver to open the side panel. Once you have done this, put the side panel to one side. You will then need to remove the filler plug (A in figure 1), tilt the machine back on its side whilst removing the filler plug and filling the machine with oil. The filler plug is also the drain plug should you ever need to change the oil. Take your 15-40 grade oil and tip into the machine. The oil should be filled right to the top of the threads until it is just about to pour back out. After you have done this replace the filler plug cap.
Now that you have put oil into the machine, the next step is to look at the control panel. There are two switches on the control panel. One is the engine start and stop switch (B in figure 2) and the other is the efficiency switch (C in figure 2). To start the machine they can both be in the on position. To start the machine leave both of these switches in the on position.
The next step is to put fuel in the machine. It is important to use fresh, unleaded petrol. So open the fuel flap (D in figure 2) and remove the filler cap and add the petrol. If you are not going to be using the machine very often, the fuel will be in the machine for some time. If this is going to be the case, you can add the additive provided which acts as a preservative. Once you have done this, replace the filler cap and close the flap.
After this, you need to take a look at the fuel tap, as shown in figure 3. To turn the fuel tap on turn it vertically downwards and to turn it off turn it horizontally. To start the machine, leave the fuel tap in the on position. The next job is to prime the carburettor (E in figure 1). For a new machine, this could take up to 60 or 70 pushes because the fuel has to come from the tank, through the pump, through the filter and fill up the carburettor bowl.
Next you must look at the choke, located on the side of the generator. By pushing the choke to the left it will be in the start position and the right is the running position. To start the machine ensure that the choke lever is to the left.
So now the fuel tap is on, the choke is set, you have fuel and oil in the machine and both switches on the control panel are on. So now you can start the machine. To do this pull the cord until you feel resistance then let it go back in. After this, pull the cord out swiftly until your generator starts. Once the machine is running, put the choke lever to the right.
Your generator should now be running smoothly!
