Why a Generator Needs a Maintenance Program
Your generator is a complex piece of equipment with many moving parts, electronic sensors and an alternator that must be constantly electronically monitored and adjusted to maintain proper voltage. In addition, a modern generator’s required compliance with Tier 3 or Tier 4 EPA emission standards creates its own issues. Proper maintenance is the key to your generator operating properly. Most generator failures can be classified as neglected maintenance. If a generator has a good Preventive Maintenance Program it should run smoothly and be trouble free. The common problems are easily prevented.
