WHY ARE REPAIRS NEEDED?
Generators are built to last many years, but they are mechanical devices with many moving parts and can go wrong. One thing is guaranteed, and that is that if your generator does break down, it will be at an inconvenient time. In situations where power generation is single-source (not backed up by a standby or backup power supply), generator failure will cause downtime. Failures occur for a range of reasons, including improper maintenance, wear and tear, fuel contamination, low fluid levels, sensor malfunctions, controller malfunctions, and more.
Generator owners can help prevent generator breakdowns by investing in proper maintenance and using high-quality fuel (see our fuel polishing service). In the event of a generator breakdown, it is important to call a qualified technician to diagnose and repair the problem as soon as possible. By taking these steps, generator owners can minimize the risk of generator downtime.
