set in a sheltered area behind a building, a vehicle, or a natural
barrier such as rocks or snow drifts.
Operate the generator set in

(3) Do not use a blowtorch to thaw out iced generator set com-

If the generator set ices up, provide additional
protection for the engine to raise the operating temperature:
or chip the ice away; dissolve the ice with alcohol; or, if possible,
take the generator set into a heated enclosure and melt the ice.
When ice is melted from the engine, the crankcase oil becomes
diluted and must be changed before continuing engine operation.
