Was running a test on my generator and normally shuts down automatically after 20 minutes but didn't. Turned it off manual and when I did some of the lights and appliances went off.

    If you had a power outage, or fluctuation during your test the generator may have transferred during the test, and not have timed out during the expected 20 minutes of run time, as if it had transferred it went out of test mode, and began providing power to your home. If that were the case, the situation that you described could happen.

SOURCE: kohler lp shuts down

What you need to know is there enough fuel going to the regulator. It should be 7 to 11 inches Water Column. If not your problem may be not enough fuel. That includes when the heater in your house kicks on and what ever gas appliance you may have. Once you verify that you need to figure out if you have the proper pressure coming out of the regular on the inside of the generator. Next I would look at compression of the cylinders. It may need new piston rings.

The first thing I would do is to clean and dry air filter. If it is a foam material you can use a warm water and a few drops of dish soap.Rinse thoroughly and let dry. I also would try a small amount of octane booster in my gas. Hope this helps you.

Need wiring diagram,from alternator to plug-ins for briggs & Stratton (3500) Elite series Model # 030208-0


No wiring diagram available from Briggs. Try re-magnetizing the rotor. No AVR or Capacitor listed in the parts list.

Disconnect the wires to brushes ( pay attention to the order) and apply 12vdc to brushes. Positive goes to brush closest to the bearing. Start the generator and check for output. If output is normal run the unit a few minutes to ensure re-magnetization then shut down normally. After shut down disconnect the 12 vdc source and re-install the previous disconnected wires. Now re start the generator and test for output should be okay provide there is no problems with the alternator. If no output during the above re-magnetization then your rotor windings my burned out.

Generator will not stay running


The toggle switch automatically resets all faults when it is turned to the off position. I would turn the toggle switch off, turn off the breaker on the generator and then turn off all the loads in the house except a few lights. Turn the generator breaker back on, then turn the toggle switch back to automatic. If it starts and stays running, you were overloading the generator. Turn on other loads slowly and keep track of what is on so you don't overload it again. If it still does not stay on, you may have a problem with the panel. Let me know what happens.

Is this unit connected to a auto transfer breaker box. If it senses utility power the system may have to be run in test mode, or the main service breaker turned off.

My gen starts and runs for 1 min or so then dies restarts then dies again and again. if i start it under load ( turn on air con) it will run for 10 min then die allen


Is there a fault?? All UL listed generators including Kohler are required to lockout on a fault on shut down. This really sounds like a problem with your 2-wire auto start connection between your automatic transfer switch and genset. RDT model automatic transfer switch it is the 2 middle wires on the green connector and terminals 3&4 in the generator. close to run and open to shut down. Any open at any time will cause the unit to shut down. The 12 will shut down instantly upon an open because your 5 minute cool down is built into the transfer switch.

Here is support product lookup. Requires more specific numbers about your gp6500.

Shuts down automatically from oil shortage.

Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.

the fact that it's tripping the breaker on the genset would suggest the the problem is not at the generator but rather on the load side of the genny before anything else I would seperate the generator from the rvs electrical system and apply some other load some thing fairly heavy toaster heater ect.. the fact that it's stopping the generator is a little unusual but it could just mean that the electriacl panel has a relay that keeps the generator running when the power dies so does the generator .load test should point you in the right direction I,ve owned 4 motor homes and when I wish you luck I realy mean it.
Good Luck

My Kohler 17RES has stopped doing it's scheduled weekly exercise. How can I get it exercising again?


On your Automatic Transfer Switch ( the little gray box you see on the right in the picture above) you have two blue buttons. One is a Manual test switch. The other has a clock on it and this is your exercise set button. Hold it down for a FULL 3 seconds if you want it to excercise without a load (not powering your home) Hold it down for a FULL 6 seconds if you want it to exercise with a load every week. Your generator will start and run for 20 minutes, and then shut down. Now every week your generator will exercise at the time and day that you pushed the set button.

Generac 4456 does not start on power loss


I install and work on these everyday. If you hooked up the transfer switch you probable have a control wire wrong. check the utility power sense wire. That lets it no when to start in auto. it could be a relay or fuses. or a control board.
