With the country in the midst of a power crisis and the winter chills in full swing, South Africans are forced to find resourceful ways to cope. As a result, alternative power solutions, particularly RYOBI generators, have become essential for households and businesses to keep their lights on.
Considering the frequent and prolonged use of generators during loadshedding, it is crucial to prioritize regular maintenance checks to ensure optimal performance. We strongly advise thoroughly reviewing the user manual and adhering to proper safety procedures, including the potential use of personal protective equipment (PPE) where necessary.
The routine maintenance of generators will always require that the air filter, oil, and oil filters are changed. Due to the prolonged state of the outages, it’s advisable to regularly check the oil and fuel lines, as this will help you identify when they might need to be replenished.
It’s also very important to check the spark plugs, as well as the battery charge of your machine. Cleaning the enclosure and the outside of your generator helps prevent the build-up of dirt and debris, as that build-up can also compromise the overall performance of your generator.
By following the steps outlined in your generator’s user manual and conducting the necessary regular checks, you can ensure that it continues to run smoothly throughout winter.
