Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

The yellow light means that it is time to service your genset. The light is set on a timer, and automatically reminds you that it is time to service the unit. As per your operator manual, the unit should be serviced every 250 hours or yearly, whichever comes first.
