Kohler confidant 4 generator will not run.

I have a Kohler confidant 4 generator (model 4CKM21)in our RV. it ran fine 4 weeks ago. Now it kicks but will not run. Disconnected temp, and oil press sensors as well as remote starter harness. Looking at the control board, LED 2 & LED 3 come on when I press the start switch and the engine is turning over. The throttle servo opens all the way then closes immediately. If I over ride the throttle by hand it starts running for a couple seconds, but then LED 2 & LED 1 come on and it shuts down. LED 5 comes on while the engine is shutting down. Any ideas??

First thing is to check oil level as low oil pressure will shut it down.

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

No spark on kohler generator 4ckm21


I don't have any idea what Carl just said, but remove the little ground wire from the coil and try to start the engine. If it fires and runs ok, you have a grounding issue somewhere and need to follow the wires around to see if anything that shouldn't be touching metal, is.

If it runs that long, you may have a bad oil pressure switch, loose connection, or fuel pump. You didn't indicate whether the time was under laod or not

Kohler generator wont stay on


Check the oil pressure switch, and oil level first. Then check rotor brushes and rotor slip rings may need polishing. If the problem is still there check stator and rotor windings

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?
