There may be several specific safety messages on your engine. The exact location and a description of the messages are reviewed in this section. Please become familiar with all of the messages.

Ensure that all of the messages are legible. Clean the messages or replace the messages if the words cannot be read or if the illustrations are not visible. Use a cloth, water, and soap for cleaning the messages. Do not use solvents, gasoline, or other harsh chemicals. Solvents, gasoline, or harsh chemicals could loosen the adhesive that secures the messages. The messages that are loosened could drop off of the engine.

Replace any message that is damaged or missing. If a message is attached to a part of the engine that is replaced, install a new message on the replacement part. Your AVSpare dealer can provide new messages.

------ WARNING! ------

Do not operate or work on this engine unless you have read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manual. Failure to follow the instructions or heed the warnings could result in injury or death. Contact any AVSpare dealer for replacement manuals. Proper care is your responsibility.


Do not operate or work on the engine unless the instruction and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manual are understood. Failure to follow the instructions or failure to heed the warnings could result in injury or death. Proper care is your responsibility.

Note: Your engine will have “Type 1” safety messages or “Type 2” safety messages.

Type 1 (If Equipped)

Flash Fire



Illustration 1g00386802
Location of the safety message for flash fire

The safety message for flash fire is located on the crankcase covers.



Illustration 2g00123185

------ WARNING! ------

Flash fire may result in personal injury, if crankcase covers are removed within fifteen minutes after emergency shut down. Do not restart engine until cause for shutdown has been corrected.


Hot Fluid Under Pressure



Illustration 3g01364786
Locations of the safety message for hot fluids under pressure

The safety message for hot fluids under pressure is located on the cover of the fuel filter (1) and the cover of the oil filter (2).



Illustration 4g01061488

------ WARNING! ------

Filter contains hot pressurized fluid when engine is running. Follow instructions on control valve to avoid injury if rapid air movement exists to blow fluid. Stop engine to avoid fire.


Electrical Feedback



Illustration 5g00305862
Location of the safety message for electrical distribution (generator)

The safety message for electrical distribution (generator) is located on the covers of the generator.



Illustration 6g00296980

------ WARNING! ------

Do not connect generator to a utility electrical distribution system unless it is isolated from the system. Electrical feedback into the distribution system can occur and could cause personal injury or death.

Open and secure main distribution system switch, or if the connection is permanent, install a double throw transfer switch to prevent electrical feedback. Some generators are specifically approved by a utility to run in parallel with the distribution system and isolation may not be required. Always check with your utility as to the applicable circumstances.


Electrical Shock (Control Panel)

Location of the safety message for the control panel



Illustration 8g00580695

Electrical shock can cause personal injury or death. Before servicing or disconnecting electrical equipment, disconnect the power. Electrical equipment includes the following components: engine control system, wiring harnesses and sensors.

Emergency Stop



Illustration 9g00305895
Location of the safety message for emergency stop

The safety message for emergency stop is located on the outside of the door of the control panel.



Illustration 10g00305896

------ WARNING! ------

Always operate this unit with the vandal door open. Operating the unit with the vandal door closed restricts access to the emergency stop button and could result in injury or death.


Engine Lifting



Illustration 11g00580494
Location of the safety message for lifting the engine

The safety message for lifting the engine is located on the valve covers.



Illustration 12g00306083

------ WARNING! ------

Improper lift rigging can allow unit to tumble causing injury and damage.


Operation



Illustration 13g00306263
Location of the safety message for operation

The safety message for operation is located on the outside of the door of the control panel.



Illustration 14g00306265

------ WARNING! ------

Do not operate or work on this engine or generator set unless you have read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manuals.

Failure to follow the warnings and instructions could result in injury or death. Contact any AVSpare dealer for replacement manuals. Proper care is your responsibility.


Electrical Shock (Prelube Pump)



Illustration 15g00306383
Location of the safety message for the prelube pump

The safety message for the prelube pump is located on the prelube pump.



Illustration 16g00306385

------ WARNING! ------

Motor must be grounded in accordance with national electrical code and local codes, by trained personnel to prevent serious electrical shocks.

Lifting provisions are intended for lifting the motor only.

Motor has an automatic reset thermal protector. If motor overheats, thermal protector will open motor circuit.

After motor cools sufficiently, thermal protector will reset without warning and restart motor.

To service motor, disconnect power source from motor and any accessory devices and allow motor to come to a complete standstill.


Electrical Shock (Fuel Injectors)



Illustration 17g01353328
Locations of the safety message for the fuel injectors

The safety message for the fuel injectors is located on the electronic control module (ECM) (1) and the valve covers (2).



Illustration 18g00103125

------ WARNING! ------

Electrical shock hazard. The electronic unit injector system uses 90-120 volts.


The ECM sends a high voltage signal to the fuel injectors. To help prevent personal injury, disconnect the fuel injector connector. Do not come in contact with the harness connector for the fuel injector while the engine is operating.

Type 2 (If Equipped)

The safety messages that may be attached on the engine are illustrated and described below.



Illustration 19g01353402
Typical example


Illustration 20g01353404
Typical example

Universal Warning (1)



Illustration 21g01105289

This safety message is located on the first cylinder and the last cylinder on each side of 12 and 16 cylinder engines.

------ WARNING! ------

Do not operate or work on this equipment unless you have read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manuals. Failure to follow the instructions or heed the warnings could result in serious injury or death.


Hot Surface (2)



Illustration 22g01085603

This safety message is located on the valve cover of cylinder 13 cylinder 14.

------ WARNING! ------

Hot parts or hot components can cause burns or personal injury. Do not allow hot parts or components to contact your skin. Use protective clothing or protective equipment to protect your skin.


Pressurized System (3)



Illustration 23g01128011

This safety message is located on the housing for the duplex oil and fuel filters.

------ WARNING! ------

Pressurized system! Hot coolant can cause serious burns, injury or death. To open the cooling system filler cap, stop the engine and wait until the cooling system components are cool. Loosen the cooling system pressure cap slowly in order to relieve the pressure. Read and understand the Operation and Maintenance Manual before performing any cooling system maintenance.
