Generator Repair Warning Signs
Worn Down Electrical Componants
During maintenance, our technicians will take a close look at the wiring, controls, and all other electrical elements of your generator. If we see any signs of damage, we will alert you to repair needs. This can include frayed wiring, loose connectors, controls/buttons that stay stuck when you press them, or an overload that shuts the generator down while it is running.
Hard Time Starting or Running
If a generator sits for too long, the lack of use can drain the battery and ultimately damage other parts of the engine. If your generator cycles on during a power outage but you notice it’s struggling to do so, it’s definitely a sign that you should call for generator repair.
We’re talking about a gas line leak, which can be hazardous. Even if you have a portable generator, this relies on gas or oil, which means the opportunity for a harmful leak is there. Check around your standby or portable system for any pooling or moisture, and call our technicians if you spot anything unusual.
Maintaining your generator means keeping the peace of mind that should a power outage occur, you won’t have to worry about keeping warm in the winter and cool in the summer. You won’t need to worry about food spoiling, electronic medical equipment that has to charge failing, or even not having lighting and other modern conveniences.

After all, nobody wants to be surprised by a widespread power outage only to discover they also do not have access to their HVAC system, refrigerator, lighting, and other electronics.
