How To Get Your Generator Ready For A Storm. Storms can do quite a lot of damage to your towns, cities and homes. You cannot really escape the wrath of nature – you pretty much just have to prepare it, fare it and deal with the effects of it afterwards. After all the rain, thunder, lighting and winds, you might be left without necessities like electricity. That’s when you’ll really see the importance of a generator. You have to ensure that it is ready to jump into use when necessary. You can do some preventative maintenance on your generator to ensure that it comes on and functions well if the electricity goes off. You should do the following: Inspect your generator fully, in an outside area.. See if the generator has any damaged or corroded parts or if the frayed or loose wires or pretty much, anything else that looks suspicious.. Before every storm season, follow your generator’s owner’s manual instructions on changing oil. Also, check the oil levels, before and after each use and make sure to change the oil if you need it.. Fill up the gas tank with fuel and add fuel stabilizer. Remember to refresh, with new gas every 30 days.. Check to see if there is dirt, damage or wear in the air filter and then replace them if you can.. Clean or replace the spark plug if you inspect it and see if it damaged or dirty..
