A well-maintained home generator can last years, however, occasionally, things do go wrong. Here are the most common causes of generator failure:
Even though your home generator is hardwired into your home a battery is used to start the generator when the power goes out. These batteries can fail over time.
A common issue related to generators not starting when needed is the master control set for “Auto” (automatic) operation is not set or mistakenly leaving the Emergency Stop Pushbutton depressed. After any activity is performed on or near a unit, always double check to assure that the generator set controls are set for automatic operation.
Automatic transfer switches (ATS’s) have moving parts and with that are susceptible to mechanical failure. Moving parts can seize if they remain in one position for long periods. It is best to ensure that moving parts will continue to operate smoothly with a monthly exercise that includes electrically operating the transfer switch with a loaded generator run.
Performing actual outage tests that cause the ATS to function will aid in exposing potential problems. Periodic lubrication of bearing points and inspection for electrical contact erosion are essential to good equipment health.
There are a few simple things most homeowners can do to keep their residential generator in tip-top shape.
