Annual Generator Maintenance
In order for your generator to qualify for warranty and to keep it performing perfectly, it will need to undergo an annual maintenance.

- Oil and filter change
- Air filter change
- Spark plug replacement and gap to specifications
- Valve adjustment to specifications (when needed)
- General check of all electrical connections
- Fuel pressure check
- Battery check
- Check of proper operation of transfer switch and power outage simulation
- Light cleaning of the generator enclosure
* This is a general summary of services and is subject to change depending on the generator manufacturer.
Please note: This only includes existing components and does not include repairing the generator if anything is found to be defective or in poor working condition.
