Commercial Generator Maintenance FAQs
How often should a generator be serviced?
At Jaffe Electric, we recommend servicing commercial generators at least once a year, with oil changes and air filter changes between visits, as required by the manufacturer. The owner’s manual will detail necessary maintenance procedures according to cumulative hours of operation.
What happens if service is neglected?
Without regular maintenance, fuel in the generator could degrade, causing clogs, poor operation, or damage. Oil could lose its lubrication effectiveness, increasing friction, and the service life of the generator could decline.
How often should I check the oil?
Ideally, the oil should be checked every time the generator operates, either before it starts or half an hour after it shuts down.
