What are the possible causes of common faults in a diesel generator ● Regular maintenance of a generator is essential to ensure consistent performance. ● If you fail to do that there are several complications that may come your way. ● Following are some of the most common generator problems: ● Failure to start: One of the most common issues that many people face is that their generator fails to start. ● This could be because the controls are not set on ‘auto’ mode but on the "off/reset" position. ● This causes the generator to remain inactive even when there is a power outage. 4

What are the possible causes of common faults in a diesel generator ● Leaks: Fuel coolant or lubricating oil leaks is also the most commonly faced problem in a diesel generator. ● Leaks can be traced to increased temperature in the system. ● For instance block heater hoses fail due to temperature rise resulting in coolant leaks. ● Apart from this gasket failure also leads to leaking. ● Lack of fuel: Fuel gauges may fail to indicate the fuel levels accurately. ● Hence it is advised to manually check the oil level and be prepared with extra supply if refueling is needed. 5

What are the possible causes of common faults in a diesel generator ● Wet stacking is also a common occurrence and it is often confused with ‘leaks’. ● Wet stacking occurs when unburned fuel accumulates in the system. ● This happens when the generator runs under a light load for a prolonged period of time. ● Battery failure: Mostly battery failures can be traced to the accumulation of lead sulfates on the plates of lead-acid batteries. ● To avoid battery failure and ensure the smooth functioning of the generator set it is recommended to replace the battery every three years. 6
