Why Would I Need Generator Maintenance?
Generator systems are complex machines, utilizing a series of systems and components that all work in tandem in order to deliver dependable emergency power. In function, they’re similar to the inner workings of a vehicle. And just as cars and trucks need routine oil changes and tune-ups, so, too, do generator systems. Simply put, you need routine generator maintenance in order to avoid common causes of generator failure, including:
- Oil degradation
- Belt cracking and wear
- Electrical connection wear and corrosion
- Coolant, fuel, and oil leaks
- Component failure

How Often Should My Generator Be Maintained?
While each generator differs slightly, for the most part, the maintenance needs of generators are static across all Generac generator systems. The factors that determine how often you need generator service include the size of the generator, how often it’s used and for how long, and the overall age of the generator.
A solid rule of thumb is to schedule generator maintenance at least every year, though you should also consult your owner’s manual for any specific maintenance needs. We also highly recommend doing a monthly visual inspection of your generator’s exterior to look for any signs of leaking or obvious forms of damage between professional servicing. Learn more about what you should be checking for between annual generator maintenance visits.
