As industry experts, we help with industrial machine repair and troubleshooting services to assist with common issues clients face with their industrial machinery.

Understand the Machine's Design

It's essential to understand the machine's design and how it operates to troubleshoot problems with industrial machinery. Jensen Controls is familiar with the intricacies of industrial machinery, each piece having its own unique design and operating parameters. Before beginning troubleshooting, we make sure our techs have a thorough understanding of the machine's specifications, including its electrical and mechanical systems, to ensure the best results for our local clients. We have the experience and knowledge necessary to get your machinery back in working order in no time with each appointment.

Check Power Supply and Electrical Connections

Electrical problems are one of the most common issues with industrial machinery. If the machine fails to turn on or operates erratically, we first check the power supply and electrical connections. Our technicians ensure that the machine is plugged in and turned on, checking the fuses and circuit breakers. We also check for loose or disconnected electrical connections that may also be causing problems for your machinery.

Inspect Moving Parts

Moving parts, such as belts, pulleys, and gears, are often the first components to wear out in industrial machinery. Jensen Controls will inspect these parts for signs of wear or damage. We promptly replace any worn or damaged parts to avoid a complete breakdown.

Check Fluid Levels and Filters

Many industrial machines rely on fluid systems to operate, such as hydraulic and lubrication systems. We will assist in checking the fluid levels in the machine and ensuring that the filters are clean and working properly. Dirty filters or low fluid levels may cause the machine to operate inefficiently or even break down. Jensen Controls offers a variety of fluid management solutions to guarantee that your industrial machinery operates at optimal levels.

Review Maintenance Logs

Regular maintenance is essential for the smooth operation of industrial machinery. A technician from our team will review the machine’s maintenance logs, making sure that all required maintenance has been completed on schedule. If maintenance has been missed or is overdue, we will help you schedule services with us immediately to restore your machinery. Jensen Controls offers a comprehensive range of maintenance and repair services to keep your machinery operating safely and at peak performance.

Consult the Owner's Manual

The owner's manual is an essential resource for troubleshooting and diagnosing problems with industrial machinery. Before or after your appointment, you can always consult the owner's manual for additional solutions if a technician is currently unavailable. Jensen Controls is here to help with all of your repairs, maintenance, and troubleshooting, as well as empower our clients to better understand and manage their machinery.
