Additional Maintenance Tips
Sold separately, the air filter needs to be changed as part of regular maintenance. Your portable generator should be maintained every 100 hours of use or once per year. In between yearly maintenance, you should run your generator every 30 days to keep the engine parts lubricated. You should also make sure the battery stays fully charged.
