If you live where temperatures routinely dip below freezing, a carburetor heater helps keep cold weather conditions from disrupting generator operation.
Carburetor heater kits are recommended for improved cold starting in locations where the temperatures falls below 0_C
(32_F). Carburetor heaters prevent condensation and carburetor icing. The heater turns on when the temperature at the
thermostat falls below approximately 4_C (40_F) and turns off when the temperature rises above approximately 16_C
The carburetor heater for 17--20 kW models fits into a threaded opening on the carburetor, below the engine air cleaner.
Carburetor heater kits are available in 120 volt or 240 volt versions.
Note: The heater requires a continuous source of AC power. The generator set must be connected to an AC power
source that is backed up by the generator set.
