Your generator is a very important tool when severe weather hits our area. When the power is out, you need to get that generator out as soon as the weather allows and power up your refrigerator and freezer as well as other important appliances.
A generator that has sat for long periods of time without starting will be difficult to get running. If it is a battery start generator, the battery could be low and won’t turn the unit over.
The fuel could be gummed up in the carburetor and the spark plug fouled. Now what do you do?
At this point the generator will need to be inspected to determine the problem. Call Mark The Mechanic at 304-395-3330 and schedule an appointment. We will provide an estimate to get your generator fixed and ready for the next storm or portable power need.
Generators are portable power equipment units that last for many years when taken care of property. Simple maintenance items like starting them once a month and keeping fresh fuel in the tank is vital to the lifetime of the generator. Using a fuel stabilizer is also important to prevent gumming up the carburetor.
