This customer noticed exposed wires near the transfer switch and the generator exercise motor did not work. As a result, the battery was dead from the unit not turning on.
Just like any other type of machinery, a generator can develop problems. While these kinds of problems are rare they can still happen. When they do, you need a qualified electrician to take care of them. A generator exercise motor is a way that standby generators get their “exercise,” so to speak. It is typically stimulated by a timer on a weekly basis. In order to make sure that it is ready to work when needed, it is imperative that your generator is exercised on a regular basis. If you have any problems with yours, make sure you call a professional with Reliable Power Systems.
