USFreedom talks about a oft-overlooked aspect of owning a generator: maintenance! In this video he discusses a gummed-up carburetor and shows you how to clean it. No matter the problem, if you choose to own and rely upon a generator for such a situation then please be sure you (1) perform regular maintenance on it and (2) actually run it every month or two, which is probably the most important act you can take to ensure your generator will be there when you need it. Oh, and remember to store plenty of fuel to keep it running as well.
