Diesel Generator Repairs

A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator, often an alternator to generate electrical energy. This is a specific case of engine-generator. A diesel engine generator is usually designed to run on diesel fuel, but there are other types that run on other liquid fuels or natural gas.

Another main type of generator commonly used is the petrol generator. As the cost of petrol is lower than diesel, there are a few pros for using a petrol generator. There is more choice of models for petrol generators. But diesel generators last longer and are less likely to fail.

Depending on your requirement there are generators from small portable diesel generators up to large-scale backup diesel generators for a high performing, reliable performance. Diesel generators are ideal for construction sites, commercial or farming, and can be customised to suit any application, big or small.

Diesel generating sets are used in places without connection to a power grid, or as emergency power-supply if the grid fails, as well as for more complex applications such as grid support and export to the power grid.

Generators play a key role in many households, businesses, industrial organisations and commercial settings, especially during emergencies, power interruptions or events. These equipments can also be used as the primary source of power in regions where access to a main source of power is not feasible. As generators play a very important role in the functioning of a number of systems, broken down or unreliable generators pose major problems, unexpected costs and stressful delays.

Even though diesel generators last longer, they don’t last forever. To avoid power failures and unexpected costs, it is important to repair / replace the parts that don’t work.

Diesel Generator Repair

If you are unsure whether your generator is working at its best or if you need to repair certain parts for it to work the best, get in touch with our friendly staff to book in a generator service or assessment. The repair process is mainly dependent on the nature of the works, but a general overview of the procedure is as follows –

Generator Assessment

Reactive Generators is supported by a team of fully qualified and experienced experts, who specialise in generator repairs and servicing. Our industry-leading technicians have the skills and resources to address any necessary generator repairs with the utmost efficiency. These repairs can be conducted after a scheduled Reactive Generators maintenance request or in response to an identified issue during owner operation.

This knowledge and skills ensure they can quickly assess any generator, identifying any issues, and devising an ongoing maintenance protocol.

Our thorough assessment includes –

  • Timely removal of worn-out parts or upgrading the components
  • Checking fluid levels
  • Battery inspection and cleaning of connections
  • Load bank testing
  • Verifying control panel readings and indicators
  • Changing fuel and air filters

Generator Repair Approval

Once the generator is assessed and the issue is identified, Reactive Generators can arrange the appropriate repairs pending your approval. Most generators stop working because there is a problem in a specific part. The most common issues occur with –

  • Stator and rotor are the stationary and rotating parts that generate electricity
  • Carburetor that mixes air and fuel to create the appropriate combustion ratio
  • Engine is the most important aspect of a generator. Small repairs can be made or if the damage is too extensive, it has to be replaced
  • Voltage regulator that appliances to a generator
  • And lastly, transfer switch

Our skilled technicians will then work to isolate the issue, devise a repairs procedure, and forward you a quotation for the repair.

Generator Repair Approval

Sourcing the right material and using quality parts is important for us. Reactive Generators carries a wide range of quality and genuine parts across a variety of major brands. This selection includes:

  • Pramac
  • FG Wilson (Perkins)

We also work closely with several suppliers to ensure that we can easily order any additional parts when required. These connections mean we can provide efficient and long-lasting repairs for every generator.

As we carry a wide range of parts in numerous brands at all of our sites, most repairs can commence immediately. Some instances may require a short shut-down period; however, our team always strives to limit the impact on your daily operations.

Larger companies that own several generators, or those that rely heavily on generators for prime energy sources, need to maintain their generators on a regular basis to avoid their daily operations from failing. Smaller companies or users who own a generator to provide backup power in the event of a power outage or as a prime energy source for everyday activities can enter into maintenance contracts to maintain their systems and repairs.
