Question about Kohler Electrical Supplies
I have a Kohler 5E gas Genset which runs smoothly of about 1 to 2 minutes, then begins to run rough, backfires and stalls out. While running smoothly, if a load is put on it, it immedialty begins to stall.
Last year I changed all the inline filters as well a cleaning the carb itself. I ran well at that time.
I suspect it is an issue with sediment build up again.
Also, I would like to know if i can install an in line fuel shut off valve on the unit.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Sound like you've done things in the correct order, tecumseh's are notorious for carb problems if you let as sit in them. Backfiring is timing related (flywheel key) or valve problems. I would take a closer look at the exhaust valve I don't believe it is closing all the way.

SOURCE: ginne stalls under load
Likely that your governor has creeped out of tolerance. Very common with Emerald line of generators. Try to borrow, if not already have one, a multimeter that is able to read frequency and voltage. At no load, frequency should be 62 or 63 hertz. At full load, frequency is going to be around 57-58 hertz. Voltage at no load should be 127 or so, full load should drop down to around 115 give or take. Adjust governor for faster engine operation for low voltage / frequency, slow down for too fast frequency or high voltage (though that is likely not the case here).
Problem with Emeralds is that the governor spring rubs on bracket, and also has a tendency to stretch. If this is the case, adjusting governor will be near impossible between full and no load.
