Called Buffalo Tools customer service (866) 460-9436 as directed in manual and was informed 'you can't use a circuit tester on these generators they have an open ground, that's how the low oil shut off works. The unit is fine.'
I should have known better right then and there, but I proceeded to use the generator. After two days (approximately 10 hours of low load operation) my 26watt fluorescent drop lamp exploded behind my head. I immediately unplugged the lamp and went to the generator and tested the output at each of the outlets. They were both indicating 200 volts so I shut the unit down. I later discovered that three surge protectors with no connected load powered-up smoked and shorted out.
There is no power gauge on the unit and the circuit protectors are a tragic accident waiting to happen. For the few seconds this power surged it was surprising how much smoke filled the house.
I am experienced around this type of equipment and only heavy duty extension cords were used. Restarting the unit briefly I still measured 200 volts with my multimeter.
IN MY OPINION THIS UNIT IS UNSAFE AND I WOULD NOT OPERATE IT LET ALONE RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!
My Advice buy one from harbor freight or home depot
