Generator Repairs from Certified & Professional Experts

Generators are meant to work when all else fails, so if your unit is acting up, don’t hesitate to call your local and trusted generator repair company – Bradley Mechanical. We have a team of certified home generator repair technicians ready to help you at a moment’s notice.

Common Signs Your Generator Needs Repairs

The last thing you want to worry about during a power outage or natural disaster is whether your home generator will kick in when you need it most. While routine maintenance can help you avoid future problems, we know emergencies arise, and damages can occur after a bad storm or outage. And with generators not in constant use, problems and broken parts can often go unnoticed.

Here are a few common signs your generator requires repairs:

  • Leaks. Over time, your generator may experience fuel, coolant, and/or oil leaks, resulting in a buildup that negatively impacts the function and lifespan of your unit.
  • Low fuel or coolant. If the tank appears full, but the unit says it’s empty, there may be a gauge malfunction. Likewise, if the tanks are left empty and running, the engine could overheat and result in significant damage.
  • Fluctuating power output. If you notice a reduction in power output, your generator is likely experiencing overload.
  • Loud noises. Strange or loud sounds coming from your generator can indicate that your unit is running excessively and overheating.
  • Dead battery. A standard generator battery should last for several years, but you never want a battery to die when the power is out.
  • Excess soot. Dark exhaust is nothing to worry about, but if you notice soot buildup, it could mean there’s a clog or your filter isn’t working correctly.

Some generator problems can be resolved with a quick visit to your local hardware store or troubleshooting with one of our technicians over the phone. But if you suspect your generator is showing signs of overload or shutdown, it’s essential to rely on a professional. Some of these issues can result in severe consequences, such as fires and explosions. The safety of you, your family, and your home is our top priority.

Reliable & Trusted Home Generator Repair Service

Our trusted and certified staff can help when you need house generator repairs. Some minor problems can be addressed by troubleshooting over the phone. In contrast, others may require dispatching a technician to your home. Our thorough process will evaluate the status of each part of your generator, including the batteries, belts and hoses, controllers, filters, circuit boards, and more. If any components require replacement, we’ll work with you to find a solution that works for your timeframe and budget.

If your generator needs replacement, we also sell and install new generator units. Our highly knowledgeable team can help you select a generator that is right for your home or business.
