Briggs & Stratton Generator Maintenance
Your Briggs & Stratton standby generator protects your home and family from power outages and ensures your comfort during an electrical emergency.
But who protects your generator and makes sure it’s primed and ready to run whenever you need it? Just like your car needs periodic oil changes and tune-ups, your Briggs & Stratton generator needs to be maintained regularly, too!
Maintaining Your Briggs & Stratton Generator
There’s an owner’s manual that specifies the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance routine for your specific model of Briggs & Stratton standby generator. Like most people, you probably haven’t any idea what specific maintenance steps are required, or even where to find the manual.
That’s why a maintenance plan with iPowerGenerators is the best way to make sure your Briggs & Stratton automatic standby generator is ready whenever the power goes out. Our maintenance plans are customized for the size and age of your generator.
Features of our Briggs & Stratton Generator Maintenance Plans
Your generator is powered by a combustion engine, just like your car. And just like your car’s engine, your generator’s engine needs a battery to start the engine, lubrication to keep the parts moving smoothly, and much more. Our maintenance plans cover these components:
When a battery sits idle, it tends to lose cranking power. When a generator runs, it recharges the battery, but if the battery doesn’t have enough power to start the generator, you remain in the dark. Our maintenance plan includes checking the battery cranking amps, cleaning battery posts and connectors, and checking the battery charging circuit.
Oil Change & Filter
Your generator circulates oil to lubricate and protect the engine parts. Oil loses its viscosity with use and breaks down over time. The oil filter removes particles and dirt from the oil, which extends the life of your generator. We will drain and dispose of the used oil and filter, add new oil, and install a new oil filter.
Engines need clean, fresh air for optimal performance and the air filter removes airborne particles and dirt. At each maintenance visit, we install a new air filter, and dispose of the old one.
The spark plugs ignite the fuel / air mixture to power the engine that your generator uses to produce electricity. New, properly gapped spark plugs will be installed and tested in your generator.
We check engine compression and make any necessary valve adjustments to optimize the performance of your generator
Cooling & Venting System
Generators produce a lot of heat, and that heat must be diffused to keep the engine parts in good working order. We have custom maintenance plans for both air-cooled and liquid-cooled generators.
We inspect your generator and clean out dust and carbon deposits
