Repairs & Maintenance
We maintain over 1,800 units at various sites. We serve major corporations, hospitals, federal state, city and county facilities, wineries, celebrity estates, department stores, communication companies, utility companies, and residences.
Who is coming on to your property? Leete Generators values privacy and security… we conduct pre-employment drug testing and background checks. We also train and hire Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA) certified technicians. We are not only able to conduct regular maintenance, but are analyzing and ensuring that your entire system is working correctly using the latest technology.
Regular, scheduled maintenance is a must. Manufacturers recommend regularly changing air, fuel and oil filters, as well as sparkplugs, sparkplug wires, and other key components. Control panel settings and load transfers are tested and verified.
Leete Generators makes it easy.
When you sign up for a scheduled maintenance plan, we customize a program to fit your equipment needs. We do the work and remember when your generator is due for service throughout the year.

- Inspect air intake system for obstruction and proper airflow.
- Inspect fuel tank for leakage. Record fuel level.
- Inspect fuel lines and connectors for integrity and leakage.
- Inspect fuel pressure. Adjust as necessary.
- Inspect belt tension and integrity. Adjust as necessary.
- Inspect hoses, gaskets, and clamps for leaks and integrity.
- Inspect radiator and fan function.
- Inspect block heater function (if present).
- Inspect wires and connectors for secure termination and integrity.
- Inspect coolant protection level. Top off and adjust as needed.
- Inspect control panel and display function (as applicable).
- Inspect starter motor and solenoid function.
- Measure and record ac voltage and engine hertz. Adjust as necessary.
- General cleaning and wipe-down of genset.
- Check automatic transfer switch proper operation and source identification
- Ensure automatic transfer switch and generator controller in “auto” position.
- Main line circuit breaker unit in closed position.

Building load transfer test
This procedure provides a method for ensuring the most reliable backup power system. To accomplish this, a test is performed by transferring the power from the utility power source to the generator, then back to the utility power source. Your power will go out for approximately 5 seconds to 1 minute.
Optional 2-hour load bank stress test
Your generator needs to break a sweat! A 2 hour load bank test is like putting your generator on a treadmill and carefully monitoring the results. The generator is ramped up to a 100% load over a two hour period allowing the parameters of the voltage and frequency to be adjusted. It allows the technician to assess the strength of the engine and generator, identifying weaknesses and areas of concern. It also eliminates carbon build up, which allows for optimum performance. There will be no loss of power as the test is done through a separate load bank. Set up and tear down equates to 4 hours of labor. Manufacturer’s recommendation is a load bank test every 2-3 years depending on usage.
