Repairing a Generator Successfully
Replacing a failed component is generally thought of as a repair. Only replacing a failed item can result in a repeat failure. When the generator is loaded, it is a probable time for a repeat failure.
Utility power failure is an instance of when the generator is loaded. When emergency power is interrupted because of a repeat failure, it costs in downtime and the repeat of the repair process.
A proven, established repair practice can almost completely reduce the risk of repeat component failures. Occasionally a manufacturer's defect to a part that did not surface during testing can fail. This is a rare but occasional occurrence.
Generally, when a newly replaced part fails it is because of something that was not identified in the troubleshooting steps of the repair process. Successful processes isolate the cause of the failure.
The generator shuts down due to low coolant level. The technician discovers a failed hose and replaces it. The coolant system is topped off and the generator is started for inspection. The generator shuts down on the next load event because of high temperature. In addition to a hose failure, the coolant pump was leaking out of the weep hole with a continuous drip. During a loaded operation, the pump failed completely. Performing a complete cooling system inspection by a technician would have prevented this problem.
Types of Generator Repairs Offered
Emergency power is an integration of multiple systems. The complexity of the buildings' power application determines the size and design of the backup power system.
When the generator starts, accepts the load, and performs to specifications repeatedly, these are requirements to a successful repair. The technician must have electronic/electrical and mechanical skills to effectively repair a power generation failure.

- Troubleshooting - It is important to determine the cause of the component failure and repair both. This helps ensure the failure does not repeat.
- Light Repair - These repairs can often be completed without long downtimes. Often components beyond wear limits are identified during maintenance inspections. Some examples are failures with engine fuel or cooling systems. Including; belts, hoses, fuel pumps, loose connectors, wiring, and injectors.
- Heavy Repair - These repairs can require a longer downtime of the generator. For facilities with critical power requirements, a backup generator is advised for the unlikely event of a power failure. Replacing the generator engine, alternator, radiator, and cylinder head are examples of heavy repairs.
- Accessories - Accessories are often considered auxiliary or support systems. Any equipment outside the generator can be considered an accessory. Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), distribution panels containing circuit breakers for emergency power distribution are some examples of the equipment.
