Answer: 
Disconnect the fuel filter which is immediately below the fuel tank. Let the little hose drain into a suitable container for disposal. Reconnect the fuel line and fill the tank with fresh fuel. Done!

Answer: 
Gas can be drained from the unit using an automatic style siphon. Please be sure to drain the gas into a suitable container. To ensure that the unit is completely drained, you can also run the unit until the engine runs dry; fresh fuel can be added thereafter. If you have any other product-related inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at 800-445-1805.

Answer: 
The sparkplug is located near the engine. You can see the hard boot on the end of the spark plug if you look right above where the letters "OHV" are stamped. It is black and is directly behind the letter "V" in this stamp. If you have problems locating it, you can call our Technical Assistance number at (800)445-1805. They will be able to help you.

Answer: 
Take the old filter to a local NAPA store. They will have compatible filters. It's mostly a matter of matching the hose size. If an exact match to the body size isn't available, always go larger so that you have more cross-sectional area and thus don't introduce backpressure into this gravity fed fuel system.

6,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Manual Start Portable Generator with Cord is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this little dynamo! we purchased this for Hurricane Sandy - I must admit I would have bought another model if I'd had a choice, thank God I didn't. Comes fully assembled, wheeled it out of the box, added quart of oil and 7 gallons of gas and fired on the first pull. It's easy to manuever (of course when not running), stores easily. It's loud but when you have no electricity, that is music to the ears. Hurricane Sandy took out our power and we ran the generator for the 10.3 hours we were without electricity without a refill. We powered a fridge, a freezer, LCD and LED TVs, cable box, PS3, electric fireplace, coffee pot, lights and charged cell phones. Couldn't ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update - Power Out and Working Great! Well Sandy knocked out our power almost two hours ago - I had cords connected since last night - went outside and started her up with no problem - running light, pump and cable booster in basement on a 50 ft 14 gauge cord. Another two 100 ft 12 gauge cords are running into the first floor of the house and powering two lamps (one actually a halogen flood light), Fios modem, big screen TV, computers and chargers - no flickering - all working flawlessly - I have 10 gallons of gas on reserve and will check on things after about 9 hours of running. After the storm will look into hooking into the main panel - very happy with this unit!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ready to Go Bought mine for hurricane Issac and it started first pull. Use it for about 47 hours with just stopping to refuel with no problems. Loud, but it performrd great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems like a great generator for the price Waited on line at home depot for 13 hours before the hurricane and purchased this as it was the only one that had arrived. Might have opted for a Briggs and Stratton or Generac but beggars can't be choosers a few hours before a major storm! Perhaps premature to rate but based upon features and price seems like a nice unit. Nothing to assemble - just add oil (says capacity is 1+quart but quart provided seemed to fill) and gas and started on first half pull! Seems a little loud but don't really care as it will be in shed when running. Comes with a splitter for the 220 line so can accommodate 4 + 4 (8 total)115 volt outlets - alot of capacity. Tested it briefly and it works! Hopefully will not need it but will update when I actually get to use it and get a feel for the capacity...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ran my house Unit worked right out of the box. Added oil and filled her up. I recently installed a generator ready load center and wired up an inlet box out in my shed. I havent needed to use this for any emergencies yet but I just tested it out on my house. I was able to run all of the following: Oil heat and hot water heater, 2 fridges, 1 freezer, lots in different rooms, computer, Tv, and lighting. This generator will work for a "whole house" as long as you dont have electric heat and/or electric hot water. So in my case I could easily run my entire house. I also dont think its too loud. I had it parked outside of my shed which is 50 feet away and you cant hear it from inside the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great generator BUT has surging issues this is a follow up review of the generator i purchased 06-25-15 .. everything works well except recently during a power outage the generator was running everything ok but the generator was revving up and down the whole time i didn't notice anything till my neighbor mentioned it ..i contacted powermate and they informed me that they are now GENERAC!!!! .,..but anyways i told them the issue of how the motor would rev up and down in a rhythmic tune and since it was still under the 2 YEAR CONSUMER WARRANTY that i would have to call a authorized repair center . in turn i did call and after about 4 days after i dropped off the generator i got a call back to inform me that the CARBURETOR became faulty and would be replace free of charge . its still an excellent generator and i did ask the mechanic if it had a generac motor and components and he did re assure me that its a GENERAC with a powermate label in which generac bought powermate few years ago ...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made with lots of power for the price. Much too loud. Bought this one because it was the only one in the store. I am pleased with the construction, set up, and ease of starting. The unit provides good flexibility with the outlet options including a 30A-240 outlet for connecting to large loads or a transfer switch. Sound level is a major problem. Not rated on the box but here listed at 82 dB. That is really loud. You can not hold a conversation without shouting anywhere near it. If you want to use this camping bring a 200 ft. cord. We need to turn it off at night in order for anyone in the neighborhood to sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Havent needed yet, but worked great out of the box so far While we have not had to really utilize the generator, I was able to power most of my home in a short amount of time. I already had the gentran hookup for my electrical supply installed. Luckily I also already had the 220V cable, as the unit only comes with a 110V multi plug extension cord (though It's a nice one.) Unpack, fill with oil, fill with fuel, plug into gentran, choke, prime one pull and it's running. turn choke off after a minute or so (it was coooooold that day) and flipped the switches on the gentran to power my house. (oil burner, smoke detectors, kitchen lights, refrigerator, freezer, water pump.) Some extra 10/30 motor oil might be good to have on hand. They give you *almost* enough to fill the unit, but enough to fill it to an acceptable level. Filling this unit with gasoline is probably my only qualm. The filler is in the center of the tank on top of the unit. trying to use a 5 gallon gas jug with the *new* *spillproof* *ventless* spigot, I wound up spilling quite a bit of gasoline on top of the unit as well as on me. Though this is really the fault of the spigot design and flimsy construction (not bought at home depot), if the fill cap was located at the edge of the unit, it would have been much easier.
