West Virginia weather suggests that owning a generator is a very good idea with our frequent power outages in many places. It could also be a vehicle accident that causes the power to go out and a generator can mean the difference between lights and heats and dark and cold!
At Mark The Mechanic, we repair and service all makes and models of generators from the large wheeled units to small hand carried machines.
A portable electric generator sits year round while you wait for it to be called into service. While it sits, it does not receive the lubrication and fuel usage that it needs to stay running properly. The oil drains down off the bearing surfaces and upon startup, those areas will wear faster without that much-needed lubrication.
Fuel becomes stagnant and breaks down over time. It will gel and gum up inside the carburetor causing it to run erratically if it will even start at all.
The common problem we see in the shop are hard starting, it won’t start, surges or surging up and down in rpm. We also see fuel leaking out of the carburetor and oil leaks.
Whatever your generator problem, call Mark The Mechanic at 304-395-3330 and let us take expert care of your St. Albans and Tornado WV generator needs.
