Generator Maintenance ensures proper functionality
In addition to conducting a visual inspection, experienced technicians always ensure to have a generator maintenance checklist which ensures that they have a look at some of the most important aspects, including but not limited to
- The engine speed
- The fluid and oil levels
- Oil filter and air filters
- The belts, hoses, lines, connectors, and any other accessories
- The control panel as well as the engine
- The cooling system
- Generator supply connections
- Battery cables and battery terminals
- Battery voltage, voltage resistance
- The exhaust system, and so on
Regularly checking all these aspects ensure that your generator performs optimally at all times.
Generator Maintenance helps prevent fuel problems
Generators running on diesel need to have the diesel fuel tank emptied and refilled at least twice every year. This is because the fuel deteriorates with time, especially when the generator goes for long periods without being operated, and hence it is recommended that you drain fuel system completely. Regular maintenance ensures that the fuel levels are checked and the supply is changed, thus eliminating problems arising from fuel problems.
