Top Generator Repair related questions

Not necessarily. Most Taskers usually come prepared with the right tools and equipment needed for a particular service. When it comes to repairing generators, they're likely to utilise wrenches, screwdrivers, joints, and connecting rods. They may also need hand-held or electronic meters to troubleshoot and test your generator. If you happen to have any of these on-hand, feel free to lend them to your Tasker as well!

The repair duration will depend on several factors, including:

  • the complexity of the damage
  • the repairs or services needed and their inclusions
  • the skills of your Tasker
  • tool availability

Minor repairs such as sealing leaks and replacing stale fuels only take a few hours. Major tweaking and part replacements that require final testing may take longer but often completed within the day.

Definitely! Most experts can handle all sorts of generators from different manufacturers, including Generac. They can repair and maintain commercial standby generators, as well as portable, mobile, and industrial types. If needed, they can also help replace broken components using approved spare parts. Make sure to let us know if you prefer a general technician or someone well-versed when it comes to a particular brand.

Most generators are built for long-term, heavy-duty performance. Some are even found functional and useful after a decade. But as a rule of thumb, replace them if the repair cost is already charging you at least half of the price when you first bought it. You may also want to consider getting a new one if your old generator is consuming too much fuel without improved efficiency.

While both types serve as an alternative power source for appliances, solar powers and generators operate differently. Solar panels sustainably use energy directly from the sun to supply voltage. Meanwhile, generators utilise fuels and oil to create a power source. Home and property owners who want to go green opt for solar powers. If you need professional help with installing your solar panels, we can assist you with this as well.

Apart from our generator services, our skilled handymen can also address home and office appliance installations, repairs, and maintenance. Through our platform, we can also find you Taskers who can help with various gas appliances such as stovetops, heaters, and hot waters. All you need to do is put up a task, and we'll handle the rest!

What do generator repair services include?

Repairing generators often require an expert pair of hands and eyes. Through our platform, you can find generator technicians who can go to you and service your equipment. They can troubleshoot the problem and offer practical solutions to get your generator running again. Whether it's a portable, inverter, or standby generator, we can help you out!

If you're booking a generator repair with us for the first time, here's what we can help you with:

Inverter and standby generators repair services

As soon as you notice any signs of malfunction, it's best to reach out to generator experts right away. You won't just save yourself from catastrophic damages, but you'll also get to avoid costly fixes in the long run. Generator repairs cover common motor failures such as coolant leaks, faulty wirings, dead batteries, and low fuel and oil levels. If needed, your technician can also help replace burnt, damaged, and broken generator components.

Small portable generator repair

Compact and easy to carry, small portable generators provide power backup for camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities. They also work wonders for home theatres, kitchens, and even study rooms. One of the most common drawbacks of portable generators is its frequent starting problem, usually caused by stale fuel or loss of residual magnetism. 

Clogged air filters can also be a factor, especially if you tend to use your generator around construction sites, farms, barns, or any dusty area. Whatever the issue is, skilled technicians are equipped and readily available to come over and help with the repairs.

Generator rotor repair

Rotors are the moving components of your generators. They are responsible for turning the motion and converting them into thermal energy. If overused, they are susceptible to overheating, mechanical failures, and thermal stresses. Generator rotor repair experts rebuild and recondition your failed rotor, remove retaining rings, and replace field poles. Should the need arises, they can also provide efficient generator winding repairs and install new coppers.

Generator maintenance

It's always wise to get periodic maintenance so you can fully maximise the benefits of your generator during blackouts and emergencies. You can choose between weekly, monthly, or annual maintenance services, depending on the manufacturer's recommendations. 

The process usually involves replacing worn-out and corroded parts, fuel cleaning, and checking for any loose connections. They can also test and analyse fluid levels, battery, coolant, and load banks, and identify any potential problems as well.
