SOURCE: I have a Kohler K-7 steam generator/shower and

There is a float valve interior of the steam generator that supplies water to the generator unit. There are no parts available for that unit, and Kohler was useless re: repair. I have the same unit and mine is doing the same thing. I took it apart and there is a washer worth about a nickel that is inside the unit. I flipped the washer over in mine and it worked for about a week....then back to the same problem.

First start up


Try disconencting the remote start wires between the transfer switch and the generator, if ot still does it you have a bad control board. If it stops, then check the transfer switch for correct wiring of utility and generator power wires, also check with an ohm meter if the run contacts in the transfer switch are closed, that would indicate loss of sensing, or bad board

12 RES - Control Panel Dead With New Battery


If it won't start in manual, you have a short and/or a bad control board. Make sure battery polarity is correct, did you disconnect battery charger before removing old battery? If not charger can push DC volts over 20V and can damage control board.

Will not issue a start signal all of a sudden. How to test to see if it is the switch or the gen. panel


I have a Kohler 12RESM1 whole-house generator with a 200AMP RDT, MPAC 500 Automatic transfer switch (ATS) in my home. The system was installed in 2006 and has been working great since. Several weeks ago I began noticing that the weekly tests weren't occurring on schedule and that the generator would initiate a starting crank for a couple seconds several time a day. The false starts began occurring more frequently as time progressed. (BE very careful!! You will be killed if you are not careful!! ) In order to isolate the trouble between the ATS and the generator, I disconnected the 2 start circuit wires from the ATS controller (2 wires on green connector). The problem stopped, which led me to believe the problem was the ATS controller board. The controller board in my ATS is a GM35950. After removing the board (BE very careful!! You will be killed if you are not careful!! ) and doing a little troubleshooting, I determined the trouble was the set of .47F 5V super-capacitors. These are the 2 black oval-shaped cans behind the relays that appear hot-glued together. I ordered 2 new caps from Digi-key (approx. $4.00 ea). The P/N is PB-5R0V474-R. Replacing the supercaps cured the problem. Don't be fooled, these capacitors are .47 farads, not .47 microfarads, thus the reason they're called Supercaps. They function similar to a battery in this application. Oh by the way, I ordered a couple extra Caps. They have a 1000 hour life expectancy, so I suspect I'll need to replace them again in 6-7 years. Good Luck, I wouldn't advise attempting this job unless you have the proper soldering equipment and are experienced with electronic repair. There's a company that will repair the board for $170. Try googling "Kohler GM35950 repair".

Error 5


-error 5 is caused by the back pressure of the steam head if water supply to the generator is sufficient and the steam output pipe to the steam head is plumbed according to the manual.
-Kohler recommends to modify the steam head to remove the wax motor, spring and snap ring in the housing. Call Kohler for instructions.

The kohler steam unit keeps shutting down prematurely


Since I don't have your model number for this, I am going to attempt an answer for you. Yes, there could be a filter but not always. Sometimes, the sensor on these units can become stuck closed and is sending a false error. Does the unit seem to be working? If it is, then it probably is a false signal. If not, the there could be debris that has gotten into the water lines. Either way, if the unit is new, then it will be under some sort of warranty. I would contact either Kohler or an authorized service rep.
