How to Tell When Your Commercial Generator Needs Repair

Commercial Generator Repair

Generators are a requirement for communities that frequently experience power shortages. Also, they serve as a lifeline when businesses need an emergency or temporary source of power. For these reasons, it is important to keep your commercial generator in tip top shape, which will require a visual inspection every 2-4 months. 

Just like other machinery, a commercial or residential generator undergoes wear and tear and will need to be repaired occasionally, but how do you know when it’s time to call in the professionals for generator repair?

Here are 3 signs that your generator needs a checkup:

1. If the buttons, wires, or any other electrical components show signs of damage, like loose connectors or frayed wires, then it is time to have your unit repaired. If any of your generator’s buttons stick when they are pressed, your generator is in need of repair. 

2. The longer the lifespan of your generator, the more likely it is to develop a leak from a storage pan or hose line. Depending on the type of commercial generator you own, leaks can include fuel or oil. Because of the level of complexity involved, you shouldn’t attempt to make this type of repair on your own. In these cases, professional generator repair is required. 

3. If your generator remains idle for an extended period of time, the battery will begin to drain, and other parts of your machine may become damaged due to lack of use. If your generator has a difficult time starting up or is unable to run smoothly on a continuous basis, it is time to call a technician. 

Your generator is a valuable piece of equipment. More importantly, it is an investment in your business. The servicing of your generator shouldn’t be left to just anyone.
