Reviews for Generaor Repair in Chicago

Rob - Lynn Power Generators, LLC
5.0
I had a 7 year old portable power generator that would not start. I had not started it in three years and suspected that the gas (even though it was stabilized) gummed up the carburetor. I spoke with Mitch at Rob-Lynn and he agreed with the prognosis and said they could fix that problem for about $100. They worked on the generator for several days but could not find the reason for it not to start. He offered to do more work that involved taking apart the engine but that would cost more and was not sure I wanted to sink that much money into it. So I decided I would pick it up and look to scrap it. When I got there to pick it up I was told there was no charge even though they put several hours of work, new spark plug etc. into it. I was very impressed with this. If I ever need help in this area again I will be sure to come back to these guys. Their integrity is incredible.

Our power went out last night and our standby generator did not turn on. We called Penco Electric and spoke to Kathy who was able to send a technician to our home within an hour from our call. The technician (I think his name was Luke) promptly got the generator up and running. We have used a lot of service companies through the years and Penco is one of the best!

Armbrust Plumbing Heating & AC Inc
5.0
During a power outage, our whole house generator didn't start. I had no prior experience with Armbrust, but called them as they are local. I got a quick call back from Patrick, who had a few questions about the model (20RESA) to enable him to order parts. He told me up front that he was doing this to be sure he had any parts he might need when he stopped out. After spending about 3 and a half hours on site, Patrick had the generator running again. The problem in my system's case was a slippage in the carb choke lever that prevented the valves from opening properly. That wasn't an easy thing to find -- but Patrick stuck with it. In the process of troubleshooting, he also replaced the spark plugs, checked the battery, valves and air filter. He also updated the firmware. I was only charged for the labor and the $13 plugs. He took back the extra parts that he didn't need to replace. He also worked with me a bit on the price, giving me a discount on the labor due to the time involved. That was pretty generous. In the end, the unit is fixed. I thoroughly understand what failed. I was only charged for parts and time I used. I feel good about Armbrust and would recommend them.

Oakwood Electric & Generator
5.0
For several years I hired Oakwood for yearly Maintenace and part replacement on my whole house generator. Pedro is my go-to technical for home service. He takes the time to explain the problem and what is needed to correct it. He represents the company in a very professional manner. He was very kind in understanding how stressed out I was regarding the potential flooding of my basement if the electricity went out. Tricia follows up on phone calls quickly and provides information I request. She is always pleasant and very helpful. I consider myself lucky to do business with Oakwood and not be tormented by poor customer service. Spending money on service and repairs is never pleasant. However, Pedro and Tricia make me feel like a valued customer. I would recommend Oakwood Generator to anyone.

GenX Generator
1.0
We hired Gen X in 2010 to service our generator, as well as to handle significant warranty work when the entire unit needed to be replaced. We parted ways with the company after a terrible experience with the sister company (Highland Park Electric and were more than slightly disappointed to find out that while they were doing extensive repair work on the unit (and in the two subsequent years that they maintained the unit), they never noticed the gas line going into the unit was too small. Had they identified the problem while our basement was unfinished , it would have been a minor repair. Unfortunately, we finished our basement two years ago, and addressing the problem now (which another company identified the very first time they serviced the unit) cost us $1500 and required trenching our yard. (The alternative would have involved cutting into and replacing drywall.)! To say we are disappointed in the level of service would be an understatement.

Mikus Electric & Generator
5.0
They came out to show pricing and options - very nice and not high pressure. Answered any questions we had. Once we decided to go with them, they were quick to get on the job and did very clean and excellent work. We had one issue with the box cover after a couple of days with high winds and after I called them, they came right out and fixed it.

They do good work and I have to keep on. I get along with Jerry. He’s the one that runs it but he gets forgetful. Over the years, I've had him put in a new generator and they started with it. They put in the tank with water heater. They rewired my garage so I can put in a swim spa on the garage. They’ve done a lot of work for me. They missed a repair schedule. They put in a new furnace and air conditioning. Last year, they forgot the schedule for maintenance on the generator. I was upset with them. They didn’t noticed when it came time to do it.

SPOTLIGHT INC
5.0
This was a complicated project as the generator needed to be installed about thirty feet from the residence. Spotlight Inc. handled all aspects of the installation including trenching, pickup and relaying brick paving and repair of landscaping. Spotlight Inc. also provided the information and contacts necessary for me to upgrade my Nicor gas service to support the generator. All scheduled appointments were kept and the work was completed in a timely manner. The work area was cleaned at the end of each day. The electrical work was done to commercial standards even though this was a residential installation. I am very pleased with the quality of the work and with my interactions with the vendor.

Pierro Quality Electrical Construction Inc
5.0
We recently had our generator upgraded. It was a few parts that needed to be replaced.They had a girl come out and do the repair and because the generator is 12 years old, it's like opening a can of worms, if you will. So once you start working on stuff other things can go wrong.They were very accurate in diagnoses the problem. They did a good job in replacing the part and there was an issue with a gas leak, it was a minor thing.They sent somebody out the very next day and took care of it with no cost and they guarantee their work.I was very happy with everything.

The initial call was pleasantly handled & they scheduled the repairman for the next day. Ryan called in advance of arrival to confirm time of appointment & arrived right on time. He was here about 15 minutes & discovered a broken part (generator is 10 years old). Ordered the part from the factory the next day and called back 2 days later to confirm it was in stock and would be here in one week. Five days later he called to say the part was in & came the next day to install it (no charge for the trip to install). Ran the generator through a series of cycles to verify it was working properly, and thanked me for the business. WOW! That was refreshing.
