Generac Generator Maintenance Checklist

Because generators need to be at the ready 24/7, generator maintenance involves much more than just lubricating the moving parts and changing the oil filter. A full Generac generator inspection includes the following steps:

  • Junction box wiring, connection, and circuit board inspection
  • Oil and filter change
  • Coolant temperature and contamination check
  • Belt and hose inspection
  • Radiator inspection
  • Fan and fan guard inspection
  • Block heater inspection
  • Battery test and charge, or replacement if battery is more than two years old
  • Battery charger test
  • Generator and engine control test
  • Remote start wire inspection
  • Transfer switch control and failsafe test
  • Air filter, oil filter, and fuel filter replacement
  • Engine oil pressure and running temperature reading
  • Generator voltage and frequency check
  • Fuel levels and lines check
  • Airflow and exhaust check

When we inspect your Generac generator, our electricians perform all these tasks and more. If you want your generator to run smoothly all year long, call us today!

At-Home Generac Generator Maintenance

In addition to annual professional Generac generator maintenance, there are a number of steps you should take on your own to ensure your generator is ready to cover your home during an emergency. These include:

  • Weekly self-testing: Once a week, your Generac generator will run through an exercise cycle on its own. This routine may occur when you’re not around, but if you don’t think it is happening, call Kolb Electric! We can inspect your generator and ensure that everything is working properly.
  • Gas line maintenance: Since your Generac generator is connected to your home’s natural gas line, it’s important that you keep on top of regular gas line maintenance — a disruption in your natural gas service could prevent your generator from working properly.
  • Generator organization: Your generator needs to be able to take in air unobstructed in order to work properly, so make sure you keep the area around it neat and free of trees, shrubs, leaves, and debris.

If you’re planning on doing any digging in your backyard, be extremely careful that you don’t accidentally cut any lines going to your generator. Severing an underground electrical or gas line can cause your generator to fail and may cause personal injury.
