What would cause a generator to go.from 8 hour run time down to 5


You are probably drawing more power when you get 5 hours out of it than when you get 8. It could also be that your choke is not fully off. The engine will also be more efficient if it is hot. If it is cold outside, you may want to put a box around it to keep heat in. Make sure that you leave openings for the exhaust to escape and fresh air to get in.

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.

My hr meter reads 8.0, is this 8hrs? If this is then my hr meter is wrong cause I know I haven't ran this for 8hrs.


that would be 8 hours. the hour meter measures engine run time. so if it is just started and setting in one spot, it will count on the meter. if you are sure the engine has not run anywhere near 8 hours then there could be a problem with your meter and you should contact your dealer for replacement.

Generator set starts runing for about 1 hr and then shutdown suddenly with speed fault messege dilplayed on the protection board


I work on these every day. Its either gonna be the rotor or stater, the voltage regulator,or its a bad stepper motor which is the throttle motor, or control board. Thats all that could be causing that so its one of those. If its the rotor or stater thats bad it causes the generator to RPM up because it thinks its not producing enough power due to that then it shuts down.

Runs fast, only 5 hrs recorded on 8 hr tape. Any speed setting


check that you have the right type of tape, SRC-800's should record 8HRS with a T-160 tape.
