easy-ripe-evoEven a hot rod needs oil changes, and as long as people use machines, machines will require maintenance. If your generator does not appear to be functioning correctly, however, please follow the instructions below.

Remember: It can be costly and dangerous to tamper with technology, and if you are renting a generator, you are responsible for it. Please contact us for information regarding generator repairs.

  1. Check to be sure that the electricity to the generator is correct.
  2. Check the circuit breaker and reset if necessary.
  3. Check the OPERATION STATUS INDICATOR light (if so equipped).

GREEN or Flashing GREEN: NORMAL
RED, Flashing RED, or any color other than GREEN: There is an internal problem.

If there is an internal problem, the generator must be reset. Follow the reset procedure as listed on the top of the generator. If generator Operation Light fails to return to Solid Green, the unit needs to be returned. See instructions below on how to return a generator for service.

CAUTION: Do not attempt to repair the generator! Repairs should only be made by authorized, trained personnel.
