Service

Because we all have a bad day sometimes

Though Kohler automatic standby generators are the best in the business, sometimes even they need a little TLC. Our factory-trained and certified technicians can work on any air-cooled or liquid cooled Kohler standby generator from 8kW to 150kW and get it back in perfect working order. We also work on Kohler generators purchased from other vendors, and are certified to perform Kohler warranty service.

Ready to Run

To keep your generator in good shape, we recommend our generator service maintenance plan. Although *fingers crossed* your generator may run as little as 26 hours a year (based on no outages and 30 minutes of weekly exercise), the oil needs to be changed annually or every 100 hours, whichever occurs first. Additionally, our factory-trained technicians perform a comprehensive inspection to reduce the likelihood of breakdown and extend the lifetime of your generator.

Do you DIY?

Kohler recommends checking the oil after every 8-24 hours of operation, depending on the size and model of your generator. We can come check it for you, or if you’re interested, our technicians will be happy to show you how to check, add and replace the oil on your generator. Kohler also recommends replacing the batteries every 3 years, and we will be happy to show you how to do that. We want you to be pleased with your P&G installed Kohler generator, and will always go the extra mile to make sure that’s the case.
