Why are generator repairs necessary?
As with any piece of electrical or industrial equipment, diesel generators do suffer from wear and tear. Therefore, generators require regular check ups to make sure all parts are working correctly and there are no outstanding repairs or issues. Because generators work with a diesel tank, there are also potential issues with things like corrosion, rust, burnout and fuel contamination.
Some of the reasons a generator can fail include:
- Low fuel levels
- Contaminated fuel
- Controller failure
- Sensor malfunction
- External fluid hose failure
- Voltage regulator failure
- Blocked fuel filter
