There are many problems that can occur that can cause your generator to need repair. Common repairs are needed for leaks in the coolant system, damaged wiring, fuel line failure, bad belt, and battery failure. Also, when components like the motor, circuit boards, and transfer coils are exposed to high temperatures it can cause them to burn out, leading to repairs and replacements needed. You must make sure that cables are in good condition and connected properly and that all fuel levels are not too low. You should contact an electrician for yearly maintenance and inspection to prevent any minor or major problems from occurring.
