When outages hit in your area, having a backup generator ready to kick on is key; however, it can be easy to neglect the care of your generator. Generators, just like any other appliance, should be taken care of properly — this includes scheduling regular maintenance.
Florida is known for harsh tropical storms and hurricanes. In order to ensure the best performance possible, Generac generators should receive maintenance well before hurricane season hits to guarantee they will have your back should storms cut your power.
Don’t run the risk of losing power without a trustworthy Generac generator to step in. Call Reliable Power Services at 561-757-4405 or schedule a maintenance service with us online!

Tips For Troubleshooting Your Backup Generator
While Generac generators are designed to withstand the forces, they are still not fully immune to the impact the elements can have on them over time. Before scheduling a maintenance service with us, there are some troubleshooting tips you can perform on your own:
- Reset tripped breakers: Oftentimes, resetting is all it takes. If you notice its button is protruding, push it back into place.
- Check to see if it’s level: Sometimes, generators will auto-shut-off if they are not even. Use a level to determine if it’s lying flat; if not, simply utilizing wooden planks to even it out should do the trick.
- Correct the fuel valve: Make sure the fuel valve is switched to “on” if you notice that your generator is performing shoddily.
- Inspect the high-temperature light: If the light is on, it means that your generator is overheating. To correct this, turn off your unit and refill it with approved motor oil.

Frequently Asked Questions About Generator Maintenance
When Should Generators Be Serviced?
To keep your Generac generator operating at peak performance, maintenance should be scheduled twice a year. The team at Reliable Power Services will aid you in developing a maintenance place that’s right for your specific model.
How Long Should Generac Generators Run?
If your generator runs on natural gas or propane and the supply is unlimited, it should be able to operate without ceasing. Generac generators running on a 500-gallon tank should be able to run for over a week without any breaks. If this isn’t the case for you, your generator needs to be checked out by an expert.
