Do I need a main breaker in front of a manual transfer switch

I'll assume you are isolating the main breaker that carries in current from the pole (this is called a service disconnecting means). By the term "main breaker" I'm assuming you are referring to a feeder disconnect; that is to protect the generator from over-current.
Under these assumptions, no, the generator has a circuit breaker capable of interrupting the circuit leading to the transfer switch. Under these conditions, you could view the genset's breaker as a "main".

Do I need a main breaker in front of a manual transfer switch

To be code compliant, I'm sure you do. The transfer switch transfers between 2 power sources, usually the electric utility and a generator. Both sources connect to the transfer switch and you select which one provides power to each circuit. The main breaker provides circuit protection to the internal wiring regardless of where the power is coming from. Even if the transfer switch has circuit breakers, there should be a main breaker which can cut off all power to a circuit, or one circuit in an emergency. In addition, unless all your circuits are on the transfer switch, the main breaker is absolutely necessary.

Need circuit diagram for Kohler ATS part # K163341-800

Do you know the part number on the board. Kohler used numbers written with permanent marker on their controls boards. They usually started with a letter like A or B.

You might have a * 297373 or *297375. They usually had a big orange relay that stuck up in the middle.

The filter capacitors would always dry out over time and relays wouldn't energize correctly.

Depending on the board we might have a drawing.

We fix some of the older style. Check out our website: www. You'll find contact info. For fast response call in and be prepared with any board numbers you might have found!
