Generators come in handy during power cuts, but, just like any other machine, they require regular maintenance to keep working as expected. Whether you are using your generator to produce electricity for your business in inaccessible locations or you are using it as emergency power backup for your home, proper generator repair and maintenance by a qualified residential electrician is essential.
Usually, you will spend less to get generator repair services than to buy a new one. So, make sure you think about that before you run into the extra expenses.
|1.||Generator Won’t Start||If your generator won’t start, the following are the conditions or parts that might be causing the problem: Defective Recoil Starter, Faulty Spark Plugs, Defective Ignition Coil, and clogged carburetor.|
|2.||Generator Keeps Having Low Battery||Your generator could be having a defective battery. Use a voltage alternator or regulator to check if the battery is working.|
|3.||Generator Leaking Gas||A generator whose Float Bowl Gasket or Carburetor are missing or are dried out might start leaking gas. Check if the leakage is emerging from the bottom part of the carburetor. If this is the case, then you can go ahead and replace the gasket.|
|4.||Generator Won’t Stay Running||Your generator might not run for long if the float bowl has a bad duel or the carburetor is clogged. You can prevent this problem by ensuring that all the aged fuel in the float bowl is drained and the carburetor thoroughly cleaned using the carburetor cleaner. If this doesn’t help—replace the carburetor.|
