Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Kohler Confidant 5, model 5ckm61 generator in my RV, serial # 338225, spec# 101218. It worked fine one evening and the next day it wouldnt stay started unless the start button stays depressed . Have checked the oil pressure switch and working correctly . The motor runs fine if I disconnect the throttle solenoid and work the throtttle manually , so is not a engine problem . It has to be something that in circuit board that controls the throttle solenoid . How do I check that ?

The control board needs to sense a voltage coming of stator windings to complete the run circuit or else it will shut down. Check the stator and rotor windings for resistance and shorts

It is not a float issue because the motor cannot consume the entire contents of the gas chamber in one instance of a surge. This is a throttle issue.

Kohler Confidant 4 puts out to much voltage


Are you running the gen and plugging in the RV at the same time? I assume it is wired right and you have a transfer switch? Are you saying the voltage is fine when the RV isn't plugged in?
