4 Tips on How to Maintain Your Generator

Your generator has your back. If a power line in your area breaks down, the generator makes sure you don’t lose power. It’s connected to your gas line or a propane tank, so it automatically kicks on in the event of a power outage. Now that’s convenient.

Because your generator has you covered, be sure you have it covered. Here’s are four ways you can maintain your generator:

1. Be sure it test runs once a week. The generator should do this automatically. It’s to ensure the system is properly lubricated.
2. Replace the spark plugs. This should be done once every two years, or sooner if needed. Be sure to inspect them for any damage.
3. Check the air cleaner for any debris. You don’t want any clogging the system, as this could cause it to overheat.
4. When the generator is running, check the oil levels every eight hours. If the power outage lasts for a while, shut the power off once a day and replenish the oil if needed.
