General Maintenance

Service for the generator set is much like the service you perform on your automobile. The generator set should have oil and all filters changed at least once a year. Fan belts should be checked for cracks and replaced every couple of years to prevent over heating. The radiator anti- freeze should be drained periodically and replaced to prevent deteriorate

The generator should be kept free from dust and occasionally connections should be checked for looseness. These procedures are normally done every so many hours of engine operation i.e., 100 to 200, depending on manufactures suggested maintenance schedules. Severe weather patterns can increase the maintenance requirements, i.e., excessive dust, heat, moisture. The unit should also be checked from an electrical standpoint to be sure that it is performing as it was designed.
