Typical Generator Failures 

Faulty or Damaged Wiring

Wiring may rust, fray, or even become cut. Wiring damage requires urgent repair, which shouldn’t be put off. Low voltage alerts, malfunctioning gauges, and tripped breakers are some of the symptoms of poor wiring. Damaged wiring also increases the risk of electrocution and poses a fire risk.

Fuel Failures

Fuel problems often lead to generator repairs. Many fuel failures are due to contamination from the fuel tank itself. When they are drawn into the system, algae, insects, and silt can impair performance and block fuel lines and carburettors.

Burnt Components

Electrical components, motors, circuit boards, transfer coils, and other components may be subjected to incredibly high temperatures during generator operation. Exposure to high temperatures can harm these components and result in problems.

Engine Failure

Engine failure is more likely to occur when maintenance is neglected or performed improperly. The most common reasons for engine breakdowns are using the wrong oil or using it for too long. Failures of the ignition system that result in spark loss frequently occur in smaller engines.

Bad Belts

Belts often get worn, crack or torn with age or incorrect alignment. Generator failures due to belt failures are more common in larger generators where the energy from the combustion engine is transferred to the generator via a belt. Damage belts should be replaced when noticed to prevent failure due to belts.

Dead Batteries

To ensure dependable restart during a power outage, batteries should be changed every two to three years. As a reliable startup cannot be guaranteed with a battery older than 3 years, one should not wait past that point to replace it.

Leaks in the Coolant System

Overheating due to leaking coolant and low coolant levels are quite common as coolant system inspections are often overlooked

Burnt Coils

Generators commonly experience coil failure, which prevents them from producing any power or only a small amount of power even when the engine is operating normally.

It does not matter what type of breakdown you have, our partners can have the problem fixed in no time at an affordable rate.

Benefits of maintaining and servicing your generator regularly

Let’s look at some of the advantages of maintaining your generator correctly.

Ensures that it functions reliably

You don’t want your generator to fail when you need it most. Servicing your generator ensures that it is ready for use when you need it.

Prevents Fuel blockages and other fuel-related problems

A Generator’s fuel system should be inspected frequently, the fuel tank should be cleaned and the filters should be replaced periodically. Any damaged fuel lines should also be replaced.

Your Generator’s lifespan is vastly improved

If you keep up with the maintenance of your generator, you’ll save a lot of money. Neglecting maintenance obligations might lead to costly repairs. If you don’t maintain your generator, it will also stop working. As a result, if proper maintenance is not carried out, its lifespan will be compromised.

Uses less fuel to provide the same amount of electricity

Regular maintenance enables a generator to run at its most effective level. If you possess a generator, it would be in your best interest for it to be as efficient as possible. A proper maintenance programme ensures it.

Saves you money as it will require fewer repairs

As was noted earlier, skipping maintenance duties will lead to costly repairs. Even if you would have temporarily saved some money, the repairs will cost a lot more in the long run. Being proactive will assist you in avoiding wasting resources on unnecessary repairs.

Simply purchasing and installing a generator is not enough. You have to take good care of it to make sure it runs perfectly. Service your generator before a problem arises.

Generator Maintenance schedule for generators used regularly

WIth Load-shedding ever on the increase and generators operating more frequently our partners recommend the following maintenance schedule.

Monthly checkup that consists of:

  • Clean Generator for inspection
  • Check oil and coolant levels
  • Check Fuel Filters and Empty Water Traps
  • Inspect Belts and Tensioner Pulleys
  • Test Battery
  • Check for any other abnormalities or leaks
  • Visual inspection of electrical connections and the control panels

Quarterly service that consists of:
