Gas Generator Repair In Lafayette, CA

Gas Generator Repair in Lafayette, CA, 94549

What is a gas generator?

Whether you live in Danville, CA, Lafayette, CA, Orinda, CA, Pleasant Hill, CA, or Walnut Creek, CA, having a gas generator in your home can prove to be very useful in case of an electrical outage, or, if you have a portable generator, to provide power in outdoor environments such as a campsite or an outdoor workspace. If your generator ever needs repairs, you can come to Greg's Automotive Certified Services in Contra Costa County.


Gas generators have several parts that work together to generate electricity. An internal combustion engine injects a mixture of fuel and air into a combustion chamber, and the mixture is compressed by a piston. A spark plug ignites the fuel mixture, pressing the piston down and turning a crankshaft. Then, the crankshaft spins the generator's rotor into an electromagnetic field, creating an electric current that can charge batteries, power appliances, and in some cases, run high-wattage tools. 


How do I know if my gas generator needs repairs?

The last thing you want is for your backup power source to fail. Fortunately, there are several signs to look out for that indicate your gas generator needs repairs. If you are experiencing any of these signs, feel free to bring your gas generator to Greg's Automotive Certified Services in Lafayette. In addition to gas generator repair, we also offer services in auto repair and engine repair. 


Here are some signs that your gas generator needs repairs:

  • Your generator has trouble starting.

If your generator will not start, this may be for several reasons. Your generator may be out of gas, it may need more oil, the battery may be dead, or your spark plug or air filter may need to be cleaned out or replaced. Our Reliable technicians at Greg's Automotive Certified Services can perform all of these services for you to make sure your generator is running as efficiently as possible.

  • Your generator is not as powerful as before.

This likely means there is a problem with the control panel or master breaker, which you should not try to repair yourself. Come to Greg's Automotive Certified Services in Lafayette instead.

  • Your generator has exposed or worn out wires.

If the generator is plugged in with exposed wires, it could cause major damage to the generator, and, in extreme cases, cause a fire. Don't wait for this problem to worsen before bringing it to us.
