    How to learn how to repair generators

    Hello, I'm new to the forum here. I've been working in the HVAC/R field now for almost a year and really love this forum. I was wondering if anyone knows a book I could learn about generator repair since it seems like a field that could be related to HVAC and I just love learning new information and piking up skills that could one day be useful. Also does anyone here know if generators are often repaired?


    Thank you so much

    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    mdaturbines is a good website to learn about generator repairs. You can not learn the work completely. But you can take help on many topics about generators.

    I'm going to a Honeywell (just a Generac with a Honeywell logo on it) 2-day air cooled generator service class in January...anyone take one of these classes before? Whole-house generators are becoming much more popular down here due to hurricanes and it seems like a nice niche market to know about. Any HVAC guys doing maintenance/service/sales on these with advice?

    Why yes i have Roj!

    Also there are many large hvac/generator companies.

    Big shops rent temporary chillers and generators and do generator load tests!
