You should alway follow a maintenance and service schedule matched to your machine so that your generator and the demands you are placing upon it will available for your power generation needs.
Signs of Problems and Potential Failure
Fuel consumption is often a harbinger that something is malfunctioning and that parts are wearing down. Increased fuel consumption is a sign of decreased efficiency that should be promptly looked into.
Inconsistent power generation is another red flag that shouldn’t be ignored. Power generators should deliver a smooth, consistent flow of electricity. When that’s not happening, it is a sign that components within the system are damaged or nearing the end of their operational lifespan.
It is also critical to monitor exhaust. Too much carbon monoxide production indicates decreased efficiency. This happens when the engine has diminished capacity to thoroughly burn the fuel. Too much carbon monoxide is a critical problem that can result in catastrophic failure which can endanger personnel and physical assets. As such, it is essential to contact a generator repair service as soon as this problem is discovered.
