On this unit, if the System Set light is flashing, it means that the exercise timer is not set.

It will not hurt to run this unit like this, but it will not auto exercise weekly.

If this unit has not had any service done in 2 years, it is way past due. You need to get it serviced.

Was this what you wanted to know?

The generator needed a new air filter. Running good now.

Good deal.

But if it has been 2 years since any service has been done, you also need to change the oil and spark plugs.
