Generator Repair Downers Grove 

Generator Repair Downers Grove

As a home or business owner in Downers Grove, Illinois or surrounding areas of Indiana, you know how important having a regular source of power is. Indeed, you may not be able to imagine what a prolonged power loss may look like–a lack of refrigeration or electricity to run essential moving parts or machines–could be devastating, which is why many home and business owners throughout Illinois and Indiana have opted to protect their best interests and secure peace of mind with the installation of a standby generator system. 

But a standby generator isn’t foolproof, and regular maintenance is necessary to ensure the system is performing as intended. If you are experiencing any issues, our team can offer trusted generator repair. Downers Grove home and business owners can rely on Generator Technologies, Inc. for the fast, effective repairs they need. 

Why Generators Break Down

There are numerous parts on a generator that may fail or experience an issue as a result of physical damage (rain and pests), overuse, and time. As such, it’s important to inspect your generator inside and out and to perform generator tests, on a regular basis. Some of the most common generator breakdowns that we see involve:

  • Weak batteries. A generator requires a battery to give it the power that it needs to fuel the system. If the battery is weak or the connections to the battery are poor, the system won’t turn over. Testing a battery regularly, and then replacing the battery when it’s reached the end of its life, is important.
  • Fuel. Maintaining fuel levels is a critical part of ensuring that your generator will operate when you need it to. Fortunately, checking and correcting fuel levels is typically an easy and inexpensive fix.
  • Leaks of fluid. There are a few different fluids that are required by your generator for smooth operation, including oil, fuel, and coolant. If your generator isn’t working properly or if you are topping off these fluids more regularly than you should, you may experience a leak.
  • Low coolant. Too much fluid can be a problem, but so can too little. If your generator is shutting down, it may be because it’s overheating as a result of too little coolant. 

In addition to the above, more serious problems that we sometimes encounter include bad belts that need to be replaced, burnt components, broken pistons, engine failure, and physical damage. Whether you’re encountering a generator issue that is minor and quick to fix or more comprehensive and time-consuming, our team is here to serve you. Our factory-trained technicians have the ability to work on over 95 percent of generators without the help of a third-party contractor. You can trust us to take the time to correctly diagnose the generator issue, and then provide you with a list of your options (repair, part replacement, or new installation).
