SOURCE: kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec

Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.

SOURCE: three year old coleman 5000/6250 generator. High

Your RPM's are too high. There is no voltage regulator in coleman generators (generator is actually made by generac) and is 100% dependent on engine speed. There is a screw under the tank when your looking in from the recoil side. It controls the governor arm. Screw it in and it incresses the rpm, out decrease. Plug something in that draws a decent load while setting the rpms since you want it to put out 120 and 240 underload. Your idle voltage does not matter.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Kohler Marine Generator that says OC on the menu when I try to start it. Any ideas?

OC stands for Over Crank. How long does it take before the genset starts?

First thing is to check oil level as low oil pressure will shut it down.

I have a Kohler 7.3 ECD generator with error code UVunder frequency. Restarted gen and it ran for one hour so I shut it off. What's the problem?


check the operating rpms
the rpms determine the voltage and frequency and can be adjusted at the governor spring setting
adjust it until the voltmeter reads the required voltage
set slightly above to allow for rpms drop under load
for example if 240 volts set around 250 volts and that will drop back to 240 volts under load
if 110 set around 115 and that will drop back under full load
both frequency and volts are dependant on rpms

No 110 ac power out of gem


Check the rotor slip rings for tarnish as it has sat.
If they are clean, the rotor may have lost it's magnetism and may need flashing (putting DC power directly on it for approx 3 seconds) with brush wires disconencted POLARITY IS CRITICAL

Kohler generator wont stay on


Check the oil pressure switch, and oil level first. Then check rotor brushes and rotor slip rings may need polishing. If the problem is still there check stator and rotor windings

Have companion 5250 generator which produces about one volt in each of the 120 volt outputs..........check in the back of generator..........looks like a capacitor is missing..........is this it and and...


The cap is a 35uf 370 vac, and the generator will not work without it. While you have it opened up, check out the diode, too. After it's been put back together, if it still doesn't put out, you may need to "flash" it. To do this take a 110 volt plug and cord, and plug it into one of the outlets on the generator. Start the generator engine and then *VERY BRIEFLY* touch the leads of the plugged-in 110 cord to the + and - terminals of a 12v battery. You should now have power available, so be very careful with the ends of the 110 volt cord as they are now "hot".

Low output about 60 vac.


On the bottom right side of the engine there's a throttle with a set screw. This set screw is a fine adjustment for voltage control. The lever should be pushed until the set screw makes contact with the stop plate. Using a voltage meter, adjust the set screw until you hit 110 volt and then lock the set screw. I just bought the same generator, it was putting out 85 volts. Witha phillips screwdriver a wrench and a multi meter, I had 110 volts in less than 2 minutes. It now operates flawlessly.

Check the voltage with a meter in all the recepticles with your meter leads in the left and right slots on the plugs. Is that 184 volts AC there? If so, your gen has big problems with the voltage regulator. Let me know what you read. You can check the right slot of each plug to the round ground hole on the plug too, should be 120 volts there.
