Kohler 12 RES - Unit fails to start occasionally. Attempting a manual start by placing switch in run position, cause a loud click, but no cranking. The panel says CC. This morning I put a jump start...


I finally solved the intermittant starting problem on my Kohler 12 RES by replacing the strater and the starter relay. I was also experiencing the occassional OC indication, red blinking LEDs on the ATS, and intermittent non-starts during the weekly exercises. The problem happened during power outages a couple times also. If I flipped the start switch between auto and run quickly the generator would occasionally start. Once started, the generator runs fine. I ordered a new starter, which included the starter solenoid. By the way, don't worry about the genuine part thing..the old starter was a Delco made overseas. I ordered a new starter online for $85 (6744N) and it was indentical to the genuine Kohler starter. Replaced the starter and it improved the problem but did not totally solve the intermittent starting. Ordered the starter relay (GM49746) replaced it and the problem is solved.

Kohler 12K RES where are links for the installation /setup of the controller? thanks


The 12RESL has no user setup. That's part of lower cost on the DC 2200 controller versus an ADC 2100 or ADC-RES controller that came with the 12 / 17 / 18 RES models. Here is a link for the ADC 2100 Operation / Installtion manual though. http://www.scribd.com/doc/60318571/Kohler-8-5-12RES-Install

Kohler 12res installed 06/06, replaced controller in Dec 10, has worked fine since . This past weekend with storm, generator started and has run for 3 days , generator shut down with SCFO code - which...


SCFO is either what is displayed just before it cranks or when it is first powered up. Sounds like the controller may have forgotten what engine its running or is getting a bad run signal from the start switch. In either case a 1 year old controller should not be doing this. I would try having a local dealer doing a firmware update as there were quite a few for this controller and if this doesn't fix the problem I would start talking warranty with whoever replaced the controller.

UU lowvoltage error code residential generator


Could be the battery voltage. If your battery is not charging properly, the controller on the unit can do some funky things! Exactly how long does it run for? Is this in auto or manual mode?

Running when in standby mode


Are you sure this is not normal?

Read your manual.

Most of the larger generators do a test run once a week or so to make sure everything is working ok in case of a power falure.
