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

SOURCE: I have a kohler 5E

I have the same genset. Just fixed a similar prob with it. Mine would intermittently blow fuses at first then started blowing them as soon as trying to start. I also saw a puff of smoke from reg when it did run at one point. Carefully check stator wires for shorts to ground. Make sure to lift the stator wires that are grounded in control box. If no grounds replace control board and reg board. $400+. Cross your fingers and try it. Mine worked, thank God. The pc boards are marginally designed and built. The relays, diodes and other componants are way too undersized for the application and can not survive a lot of cycling
on and off. When starting genset make sure to slowly apply loads to it. Same thing when shutting it down. Dont shut it down with any load. It wont take it
Good luck

SOURCE: Craftsman Kohler 26 hp starts and runs for 10 seconds with starting fluid sprayed in the carbureator then stops. How do I keep it running

first you need to see if you have fuel going to the carb then you need to see if it is going threw the carb there is a solenoid on the bottom of the carb that shuts fuel off to the jet if you have no power to the solenoid that will keep it from running also dirty old fuel sitting in the carb will cause the carb rto stick closed so if you have power to it remove it and see if it is opening

150efi mariner low hours - stood for couple months turns over wont start. Got clean new plugs and seems good spark - seems no fuel as plugs dry any way to bleed injection system or other tips Warm...

Check to see if the pump is working. You should hear a buzzing noise coming from the tank area when you turn the key on. But only for about 3 seconds!

I have a Kohler 12.5 KW marine generator on my houseboat that has a problem I was hoping you could help me with. Specs: Kohler 12.5 KW 79 CID 23HP Mfg date 9-10-96 Gen Engine Serial # 06919 L-29-R

there are some magnets behind the flywheel to cause the battery charging system to recharge the batt. sometimes they come unbonded/loose from the flywheel and cause the engine to become hard to turn. I would start there first.

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.

I looked for several minutes and this is what I found:

Kohler 13EOZD wiring diagram

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!
