Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Regarding the advice about "Flashing" a generator.
Do you people even know what that means?

What you are doing is messing with the capacitor that is part of the voltage conversion. Likely you are burning any shorts out of the capacitor. Has noting to do with the fields or coils or rectifier.

So if you are having issues then test the capacitor and replace it.
Try your flashing and see if you don't fry the rectifier.

It amazes me that people will blindly follow something they don't understand "hoping" that something good will happen.

But if a new generator is what you want then give your old one away instead of trashing it.
