Kohler 10 runs only while holding start


Oil pressure, or no AC output from the stator, check stator and rotor for resisitances and shorts.

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?

I have a kohler rv generator that will start .


When this happens, this usually means that your genset is not creating voltage. First thing I would do is disconnect your remote start wire from the genset, this will eliminate the start switch inside the RV. For a shorted remote start switch can cause you genset to shutdown. Second, place a volt meter at a spot where you will be able to read genset voltage. If no voltage is available and your voltage regulator is new, then the problem is with either the rotor or stator. The rotor is the easiest check. You need to reach the brushes. Take a resistance reading, which should be around 20 ohms. Clean the rings and make sure there is enough length on the brushes, at least over 1/2". Next, flash the fields using a 12Vdc battery. Use rubber gloves when doing this. Place the positive side to the ring closest to the bearing and negative goes to the back ring. This is done while genset is running so be careful with rotating parts. Have a volt meter on the output wires. Once you flash the fields the voltage should increase to over 50Vac. If it does then your stator is bad since you installed a new voltage regulator. If the voltage does not increase when flashing, then the rotor is bad.
