Setting Exercise Timer
The Home Standby Generator is equipped with an exercise
timer that will start and exercise the system once every
seven days. During this exercise period, the unit runs for
approximately 20 minutes and then shuts down. Electrical
load transfer DOES NOT occur during the exercise cycle
(unless an utility power outage occurs).
A switch on the control panel is labeled “Set Exercise”
(depicted on page 10).The specific day and the specific time
of day this switch is pressed is programmed into the
control board memory.This date and time is then used to
automatically initiate the system exercise cycle.
To perform the Set Exercise procedure:
1. Choose the day and time you want your Home
Standby Generator to exercise.
2. On that day and time, set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL
switch to OFF.
3. Press and hold down the “Set Exercise” switch for two
4. Set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to AUTO.“Set
Exercise” is complete.
For example, if you press the “Set Exercise” switch on
Sunday morning at 10:00 AM, the unit will run an exercise
cycle the following Sunday at 10:00 AM (+/- 1/2 hour).
NOTE: “Set Exercise” will only work if the unit is in the
Automatic mode and this exact procedure is followed.The
exerciser does not need to be re-set if the 15 Amp fuse is
removed or changed.The exerciser will need to be re-set if
the 12 Volt DC battery is disconnected.
If you want to change the day and time the unit exercises,
simply perform the “Set Exercise” procedure at the exact
weekday and time you want it to take place.
• To prevent possible injury that might be caused by such sudden
starts, always set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to OFF.
• Remove the 15 Amp fuse before working on or around the
generator or transfer switch.
