I have a kohler marine generator that shuts down when it reaches operating temp of 200/210 degrees. It runs for about 5 minutes. Already replaced impella and have sea water pumping through, coolant level is good. Any suggestions? Thanks

I went to the Kohler site, entered the number and it cross referenced to the above number. The wiring diagram is on page 90.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Kohler Marine Generator that says OC on the menu when I try to start it. Any ideas?

OC stands for Over Crank. How long does it take before the genset starts?

The pickup tube in the craft's fuel tank has likely worked loose and dropped into the tank. The generator lost its "straw" that it needs to siphon fuel through.

SOURCE: 1975, 7.5 Kohler marine genset, runs only with the reset depresed

Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...

A few things to take a look at:

1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.

2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.

3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.

4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.

5) Choke not working as it should

6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

SOURCE: my kohler generator was running with out a flaw.

Double check your grounds at both the frame and the battery. Otherwise, your starter probably has a shorted field.

I have a 1989 Kohler marine generator model 7.5R. It runs OK but not AC power.


The Kohler 7.5 R had a possible three different voltage regulators that could be used.
You need to check there first. Also if you can get it the service manual for these are tp-5110 Which will show you how to test the regulator o the bench. There was a 5 6 and 7 pin regulator that could have been used.

I have a Kohler 7.3 ECD generator with error code UVunder frequency. Restarted gen and it ran for one hour so I shut it off. What's the problem?


check the operating rpms
the rpms determine the voltage and frequency and can be adjusted at the governor spring setting
adjust it until the voltmeter reads the required voltage
set slightly above to allow for rpms drop under load
for example if 240 volts set around 250 volts and that will drop back to 240 volts under load
if 110 set around 115 and that will drop back under full load
both frequency and volts are dependant on rpms
