Bisakah kau membantuku? Aku tidak tahu bagaimana cara mengoperasikan mesin ini.

English Translation

Can you help me? I can’t make out how to start this machine.

“Mengoperasikan” doesn’t mean “to start” but “to operate” including turning off the engine. The mistranslation was initially caused by English-Japanese translation, and then the Indonesian author translated the wrong Japanese sentence.
