A home generator is one of the most important devices in your home. A generator allows you to do a lot of daily tasks when an electrical outage occurs in your area.

When you have some of these problems with your generator, you need to fix them as soon as possible. You can hire the best generator repair service that is available around your location.

Maintaining a Briggs & Stratton Generator

It is important that all owners of standby Briggs & Stratton generators perform regular maintenance on their generators. Lack of regular maintenance can shorten the working life of your machine, cost you more in the long run with repairs, and may even void your warranty. Additionally, maintaining your generators gives you peace of mind that it will work when you need it to.

How To Maintain Your Generator

  • Testing – It is a good idea to perform a practice run using your generator before an actual power outage occurs. This will allow you to become familiar with how to use your generator and gives you the opportunity to work through any potential issues before being faced with a real power outage.
  • Lubrication – Like many machines, it is important that the engine of your generator remains well lubricated in order to perform at its peak.

Common B&S Fault Codes

  • Low oil pressure
  • Low voltage
  • Engine Failure
  • Low Frequency
  • Overspeed
  • High Oil Temperature

Generator Maintenance FAQs

Should I schedule generator maintenance?

A generator allows you to do a lot of daily tasks when an electrical outage occurs in your area. However, these complicated machines may have some problems, for example, battery failure, coolant leaks, low fuel level, insufficient oil level, closed shutoff valve, dirty air filter, etc. When you have some of these problems with your generator, you need to fix them as soon as possible.

How often should I schedule generator maintenance?

It is recommended that you have your generator unit serviced approximately every six months or for every 100 hours of generator operation. This maintenance will help prolong the life of your generator and make sure that any issues with the generator are resolved before a power outage exposes the problem.

When do I need to call a generator technician?

If you notice any issues with your generator, it is important to call an experienced generator technician as soon as possible. This will allow you to keep your generator running smoothly and will prevent any unsafe or costly issues from occurring.

If I own a Generac generator, why do I need to have a Generac repair kit?

If you have a service contract with a generator company, it is not necessary to own any parts kit for your Generac generator. Your service company should stock all regular parts for your generator.

Can I fix an error code myself?

Most error codes cannot be diagnosed and fixed on your own. If you are not able to determine what is causing your error code, you do not know how to fix it, or your efforts to fix the error code have been unsuccessful, call in a generator repair technician. Your technician will have knowledge of your generator and the error codes and will be able to diagnose and repair any potential issues.

A & J Generator & Equipment helped us out last year during the storm and urgently fixed the issue with our generator. Sandra is simply AWESOME!!! She is super responsive, vey nice and professional and got someone out to immediately to fix our issue. She is a pleasure to work with and made the process easy for us. We also worked with the company (Tony and his team) to move our generator this year. They did a terrific and clean job. I will be referring them to my friends and family. Thank you Sandra and Tony! It is a pleasure working with you.

With all the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing, especially Connecticut of all places receiving hurricane strength wind, it was time to get prepared. My family and I purchased a generator from A&J last week. Tony and his team came, installed the generator, made sure it was functioning properly, squared up with us and then left. Everyone was extremely professional and friendly, made for a very easy experience. Now I won’t be sitting in the dark next storm. Thanks guys! Great work!
