When to Call for Standby Generator Repair
While standby generators are generally pretty reliable, there are times when issues can arise. The most common problems requiring standby generator repair include:
Overheating– if your generator gets too hot, typically from overuse, it can cause the unit to shut down.
Tripped circuit – sometimes your generator can cause your circuit to trip, which will then cause it to fail. A qualified technician can help you repair or replace your circuit breaker to meet the electrical demands of your generator.
Low coolant levels – an internal or external leak can cause your coolant levels to be low and your generator to fail. This can typically be avoided with routine generator maintenance, so be sure to invest in regular service if you aren’t already.
Oil or fuel problems – you may need standby generator repair if you run out of fuel or if there is an oil or fuel leak, which can damage the engine.
Improper installation – if your generator was not installed on a level surface, it may not run properly.
Battery failure – one of the leading causes of generator failure, battery failure can be caused by a number of issues such as sulfate buildup, loose electrical connections, and a tripped breaker.
One of the most common reasons standby generators fail is lack of maintenance. That being said, there are many more reasons your generator can shut down in addition to the ones listed above.
