Step 1: Disconnect Load

The first thing to do is to isolate generator from the load. This you do by first switching the transfer switch to the neutral position or/and removing connector from panel receptacle. Never shut down an electric generator loaded except in an emergency situation.

Step 2: Turn Off Engine Switch

You turn of the engine by simply switching the engine to the off position using the switch on the generator. For electric start (key start) generators, you turn off the engine by moving the key anti-clockwise until you get to the 9 O’ Clock position.

Step 3: Turn off Fuel Valve

This can also be step two if you prefer. Just close the fuel valve to stop fuel from getting into the carburetor.

Emergency Switch Off

To turn off your generator in an emergency situation simply switch the engine switch off. This is the only scenario where you turn off your generator without following the procedure shown here religiously.
