Your heating and AC won’t work, all communications will be severely if not completely compromised, and important medical equipment will lie dormant. Losing access to any of these functions can threaten your health or even your life.

Troubleshooting Common Generator Problems
American Generators can provide you expert knowledge to help troubleshoot problems with your backup power system, if they arise. This small guide can help you in identifying common causes of faulty generation, including:
- Excessive Heat – If your generator becomes inordinately hot while operating, there may be a problem with the radiator. It is important to address this problem early on, as overheating can seriously damage the unit in the long run.
- Thick Oil – Generators that have trouble operating under cold conditions may have broken block heaters, which are responsible for warming the oil. Oil thickens as it grows colder, making it harder to start the engine and wearing it down when it does get going.
- Air Quality – Poor air quality around your generator suggests that there is a problem with the exhaust system. Fixing this is essential not only for your health, but also to keep the engine operating efficiently.
Troubleshooting resolves generator problems more quickly by giving us a better idea of what to look for when we arrive. Preventative maintenance agreements, the cornerstone of any generator service and maintenance program, will help ensure your generator will operate when you need it, help assure manufacturer warranty approval, and help to avoid costly repairs.
