Generator repair services in Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter FL, West Palm Beach, Stuart, Delray Beach, and Palm Beach, Florida
If your generator is not working the way it did when it was installed initially, there is probably something wrong that needs immediate attention.
Just like you always wish to check your car when it shows the 1st sign of trouble, it is wise to have a temperamental generator checked out. Small issues can become bigger and costly if they are not given prompt attention. Here are a few signs you may need generator repair services:
You notice visible damage:
This looks like an obvious sign, but most homeowners ignore it and assume it will go away automatically. Let us tell you that overlooking noticeable damage on your generator will certainly not make it to disappear.
Things that you want to give a look at include wires that look worn, frayed or loose. Visible damage on exterior automatic generators is typical as well, because of previous hurricane storm damage or even from bothersome outdoor pests. Check out for dents, corrosion, chewed wires, or other clear indications of flaws on your generator every 6 months, if not more regularly.
You are seeing start-up delays:
If your generator unit does not start immediately or falters when trying to fire up, this could be an indication of internal issues. Usually, this could be the indication that the unit is working with old or bad fuel, that mud is trapped in the tank, or that it is time to replace your fuel filter.
Even if your generator starts on the 3rd or 4th attempt, problems like this should not be overlooked.
Your power is not consistent:
This could be an indication of internal damage in your generator. Inconsistent power supply or flickering lights could also be an indication that you don’t have the right wattage generator for your electrical requirements. Make sure your power source has ample juice to maintain your domestic or commercial appliances right.
Your generator is running but without producing any electricity:
This one is really tricky, as it could be an issue with your generator, or, it could be an issue with your breakers. This is surely a matter for a professional electrician to sort out. He can check your electrical panel to determine if that is the issue or not, or poke around inside your generator unit if that is the culprit.
While it may be enticing to try & fix your generator issue yourself, as with any electrical repair, this can be very dangerous. You could hurt yourself, may void any warranty, and perhaps cause more damage that you will require a certified, licensed electrician to repair.
