Troubleshoot like this:
1 - With the generator control in Auto, jumper from terminal 3 to 4 on the control board. Generator should start without transfer switch doing anything. If it won't you have a bad controller board.

2 - If the Generator started, remove the jumper - controller is OK. Next go to the 1st transfer switch and find the remote start terminals. These will be the same wires that were connected to controller terminals 3 and 4 at the generator. Use your jumper wire to connect them and see if the generator starts, if not there is something wrong between the switch and the generator, probably a broken wire.

3 - Don't forget to check the other switch, the remote start terminals of the switches connect in parallel across controller terminals 3 and 4 so that either switch can start the generator.

4 - Each switch should have some sort of a test button/switch, power down as much of the building as you can, then run the test function of each switch one at a time. Don't stand directly in front of the switch while you do this.

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

SOURCE: My Kohler 17RES has stopped doing it's scheduled

On your Automatic Transfer Switch ( the little gray box you see on the right in the picture above) you have two blue buttons. One is a Manual test switch. The other has a clock on it and this is your exercise set button. Hold it down for a FULL 3 seconds if you want it to excercise without a load (not powering your home) Hold it down for a FULL 6 seconds if you want it to exercise with a load every week. Your generator will start and run for 20 minutes, and then shut down. Now every week your generator will exercise at the time and day that you pushed the set button.

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.

My Kohler Model 17RES threw an Overspeed Shutdown code. I have been unable to reset the system. It makes a short "chattering" sound around the circuit board area when I try to manually switch the...


The chattering sound is the stepper motor trying to cycle. Check to make sure there is no interference, move the throttle linkage by hand back and forth fully as sometimes the 17, 18, and 20 butterfly valve sticks on the carburetor gasket. If this happens, remove the gasket and use a file to put a good bevel (45 degree angle) in it to stop it from hitting. Thats all it takes.

17 KW Kohler will start and idle but will not step up to proper RPM to run the generator. Is it common for NO gas (Propane) pressure to pass through the regulator when the engine is trying to start. Or...


i think the propane regulator is controlled by engine vacuum pressure in a lot of gensets. when was the last time your valve clearances were checked? this is just a thought because if the valves are too tight it may not make the vacuum needed to open the regulator. not sure but its easy to check.

Error 5


-error 5 is caused by the back pressure of the steam head if water supply to the generator is sufficient and the steam output pipe to the steam head is plumbed according to the manual.
-Kohler recommends to modify the steam head to remove the wax motor, spring and snap ring in the housing. Call Kohler for instructions.
