Home Generator Repairs the Right Way

Be Sure Your Home Generator Repairs Do Not Leave You Powerless – have original parts replaced as soon as possible and it is best to have the home generator repairs performed by a factory trained technician.

Certified Home Generator Repair
Generator Question: I have a stationery Kohler 12Res generator located outside house.

  1. Will this band-aid fix cause any problems with overload, assuming I don’t use the unit for washer, dryer, air conditioning, or electric range, but is connected to everything else including hot water heater?
  2. The service company is notoriously slow and I want the breaker replaced ASAP. Can the breaker be replaced by an electrician, or does he need to be a specialist with experience in dealing with the Kohler panel (inside house) and automatic transfer switch?

Thanks.
