A man called us to report that his 7-year-old generator was not working correctly. Our technician diagnosed the problem as a faulty stator. Once we replaced the part, the generator once again worked normally.
The stator is a key part of a generator and can develop problems due to aging and deterioration due to prolonged exposure to heat. One of the main components of a stator is an iron core, which is made of thin, laminated metal sheets. When these sheets are exposed to a great deal of sun exposure they can join together and render the part operational. It is critical that a professional take care of all stator repairs and replacements so that any problems can be addressed before the generator is put back together.
