Charlotte Generator Repair

Don't be left in the dark! If your home standby generator won't start or simply won't power your home like it used to, give us a call! Our electricians provide some of the area's best generator repair services you can find.

With any luck, your home's backup generator will go extended periods without seeing any real action. However, in order for a generator to work properly when you do need it, it must be tested and maintained regularly throughout the year. Repair services by a licensed electrician are your best option for making sure the generator is always ready to supply power to your home.

Roby Electric is an authorized dealer of Generac and Kohler generators and we offer generator repairs in Charlotte, NC and its surrounding communities for any brand or make of generator. When you call us for service, you will get a licensed electrician with plenty of generator repair experience.

Troubleshooting a Backup Generator Issue

If your generator does not start, fails a test, or shuts itself off while operating, you need to find the problem and make repairs before the next storm or outage.

First, try to eliminate human error. The generator should be set to “auto,” not off. Fuel supplies should be filled and replaced occasionally.

The most common generator issues in Charlotte that your Roby Electric contractor will look for include:

  • Dead batteries – Many generator batteries need replacement every couple of years. An electrician can determine if the battery is dying faster than it should and correct the issues.
  • Leaks – Fuel or oil leaks and evaporation are often to blame when a generator won’t start. Coolant leakage causes overheating and shutdowns.
  • Electrical issues – Generators have their own breakers in addition to your main electrical panel. If these get tripped, there could be a wiring problem putting the system in danger.

As you can see, homeowners can first try to check fluid levels and settings to rule out simple issues. However, many generator problems require electrical wiring knowledge and experience with generator repairs.

Generator Maintenance and Repairs in the Charlotte Area

We offer both scheduled generator maintenance and 24/7 emergency repairs. If you want, we can conduct a full electrical inspection to make sure your home’s main system and its backup generator source are functioning correctly. 

Recommended generator maintenance includes checking the fuel and coolant levels, tightening electrical connections, cleaning air intake valves and vents, and a tune-up for the engine and spark plugs. Common repairs include replacing the battery, filters, and belts, as well as any corroded or damaged parts.

Even a generator in perfect condition will not work if it isn’t wired correctly and set up to automatically power on during a utility outage. Work with the trusted electricians at Roby Electric, and you can feel confident that your family will have the power it needs for lights, refrigeration, and everything else!
