Troubleshooting the Top Reasons Generators Fail


Backup generators are critical to your business in the event of an unexpected power outage, but they require proper and regular maintenance. When your backup generator is not properly cared for (both the fuel and electrical components), there are several different reasons it may not start when you need it most. One of the common issues below may be the culprit...

  1. The battery is dead
  2. The fuel level is off the mark
  3. You have a leak
  4. There is air in the fuel system
  5. Your "auto-on" feature is off
