The operation of a diesel generator set is not as simple as imagined. Most of the customer’s generator problems are caused by improper use of the generator, resulting in damage to the diesel generator. The service life of a generator is completely dependent on the user’s usual use and How well the maintenance work is done, the correct use of diesel generators is crucial.


1. Preparations before starting the diesel generator set: check the oil level, coolant level, and fuel quantity of the lubricating oil; check whether there is oil leakage or water leakage in each pipeline and joint; check whether there are hidden dangers in the electrical wiring; if the ambient temperature is lower than At zero degrees, a certain proportion of antifreeze must be added to the radiator; the diesel generator set is started for the first time or restarted after a long stop, and the air in the fuel system should be exhausted by hand pressure pump.

2. Starting the diesel generator set: After closing the insurance in the control box, press the start button and press the button for 3-5 seconds. If the start is not successful, wait for about 20 seconds to start again. If the start is not successful multiple times, you should Stop the startup operation, remove the fault, and start again.

3. Pay attention to the working status during operation. In the work of the generator set, there must be a special person on duty, often pay attention to observe a series of failures that may occur, especially pay attention to changes in oil pressure, water temperature, oil temperature, voltage, frequency and other important factors. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to having enough diesel oil. If the fuel is interrupted during operation, it will objectively cause a shutdown with load, which may cause damage to the generator excitation control system and related components.
