SOURCE: My Kohler Confidant IV generator starts and runs

Kohler generators feed the generated voltage back into the control circuit board to tell it to keep the fuel pump (electric) runing and the ignition on. IF there is no voltage generated (bad brushes or?) then the symptom you describe will occur. The motor runs fine, but it isn't generating electricity.

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

It is not a float issue because the motor cannot consume the entire contents of the gas chamber in one instance of a surge. This is a throttle issue.

I have a Kohler Confidant 5, model 5ckm61 generator in my RV, serial # 338225, spec# 101218. It worked fine one evening and the next day it wouldnt stay started unless the start button stays depressed ....


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

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?
