20 Most Recent Kohler 14resa 14kw Home Emergency Backup Generator Questions & Answers


I had this fault show this morning. Very alarming, as we have a typhoon coming theough tomorrow!

Turned out to be an easy fix. When I hit start the solenoid engaged but nothing moved. Then I saw the fault message and thought "Large $$$$!"

It was just a bad 12 Volt battery, and when it couldn't crank it threw the fault code. I replaced the battery, pulled the 3 fuses on the control panel (mine is the 20 Kw model), and the codes cleared, and she fired right up.

The advice here and on a couple other sites about powering down the panel to clear fault codes saved me a lot of time, money and aggravaion, not to mention a freezer full of food (knowing the Guam Power Authority, and knowing typhoons, the power WILL go down tomorrow.

The battery charger is defective, as you can start it by jumping it off means it is just a low battery. without it running measure battery voltage, it should be around 12V then plug the charger back in, it should climb to around 13.8B with a good battery. If not have the float charger checked.

Locked Rotor is reported as an overcrank fault "OC".

You first need to verify the engine fails to crank, which is likely a starter motor or start circuit failure.

If the engine cranks three separate times and then the OC fault occurs, it simply means the engine did not run... more likely a fuel issue.

But either can be caused by numerous reasons.

Maybe the start motor is damaged. You can check it first.

Six steps of start-up Shangchai generator set :
A.Unscrew the deflation screw on the fuel injection pump, use the fuel hand pump to remove the air in the fuel system, and fix the adjusting control handle on the throttle position of the suitable starting speed;
B.Pressthe generatorstart button to start the diesel engine. If the diesel engine can't start in 10 seconds (up to 15 seconds), it should wait for 1 minute before starting for the second time. If it can't start for three consecutive times, should check and find out the cause of the failure;
C.After diesel generator set start up, the no-load speed gradually increases to 1000-1200 r/min (note not to run at low speed for a long time). After the diesel engine is preheated, the speed is increased to the rated speed. When the outlet water temperature reaches 55 degrees Celsius and the oil temperature reaches 45 degrees Celsius, full load operation is allowed;
D.After starting the diesel engine, pay close attention to the reading of oil pressure gauge (2.5-3.5kg/C?in normal operation). If the oil pressure gauge does not indicate, stop immediately and check whether the ammeter has charge indication;

E.After the diesel generator set is put into normal operation, should observe the changes of water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure at any time, and should handle the reading of power meter, frequency meter, ammeter and voltmeter in time if abnormalities are found;
F.When each instrument of the genset indicates normally, can turn on the load switch to send power to the load. With the change of load of the genset, if the frequency and voltage are not within the prescribed range, should adjust the frequency and voltage in time to maintain the rated value. It is strictly prohibited that the genset carry load at low speed, so as to avoid damage to the equipment.

Can you be more specific? what model Kohler is it, Model number KW etc.

Kohler... | Answered on Aug 30, 2019


I think you can ask your supplier, they most know their generator.
If you plan to have a new diesel generator set, maybe you can consider Cummins, Volvo, Perkins, as well as China made generator: Yuchai, Shangchai, Weichai, Ricardo etc.
