Beat the heat!
Something as simple as properly reattaching the air duct hose after inspecting the air filter can make all the difference.
When putting the air filter cap back on, some operators don't notice that the air duct hose isn't connected. That allows hot air to be drawn from inside the generator. The extra heat can be enough to burn up the generator--especially in the desert.
So when you reinstall the air filter cap, make sure you push the air duct hose back onto the air inlet. It only takes a few seconds and lets your generator pull in relatively cooler outside air.
