Cost to repair a standby generator

The cost to repair a standby generator depends on the following factors:

  • What's wrong with the generator:

    Some repairs are more expensive than others because they require more labor. For example, replacing a bad battery will generally cost less than a more complicated repair, such as unclogging a carburetor.

  • Fuel type:

    Residential standby generators are powered by 1 of 3 different types of fuel: propane, natural gas or diesel. Propane units cost the most to repair and maintain, followed by diesel generators, with natural gas being the least expensive system.

  • The size of your generator:

    Generators are sized according to how many kilowatts of power they provide (ranging from 7 to 45 kW). The bigger the generator, the more the repair will likely cost.

  • Whether the generator needs to be replaced:

    In some cases, the generator may need to be replaced altogether, which will significantly raise the cost.
