    Use Koehler filter 12 050 02-s filter and a good 10/30 oil,you have to use 10/30 oil because some Koehler engines have hydraulic lifters.

Kohler Model 12RES generator manual calls for use of synthetic oil (Mobil 1 or equivalent) as follows: If temperature is normally above 0 degrees F, use 10W30. If temp. is normally below 32 degrees F, use 5W20 or 5W30. NAPA Auto Parts recommends their #1056 oil filter for the 12RES.

Lowes sells air filters for Kohler engines . As far as the oil a SEA 30 or 10w 30 would be fine.

    Not all Lowes (or Home Depot) carry oil and air filters for Kohlers. You might try any of the auto parts stores. They can look up the proper filters for both oil and air using their Fram (or alternative) cross-reference charts. Although you didn't ask about what oil to use, I would recommend a synthetic 5W30 or 0W30 if you are in a cold climate.

Trying to find oil filter that can be found locally from car part supply store.


take the old filter along to the spares shop and see if they can match it up
I suspect that the same filter will fit both engines
if you want to get technical, use a verniers to measure the thread hole diameter, a thread gauge to get the thread pitch, and the outside diameter of the oil seal
by going to oil filters manufacturers on line and researching their catalogues you will find pages of filters with dimensions that will match you filter
I would rather just go and buy a genuine filter from a mower shop or kohler dealer as there may be a generic filter already listed.

No you cannot, a 60HZ unit is designed to run (and the controller expects to see 60HZ) RPMS 1800 for a 4 pole rotor and 3600RPM for a 2 pole. Slowing engine speed down to 1500RPM the controlelr would see it as under frequency

Generator won't start. Screen showing OC.


OC means OVERCRANK safety circuit stopped the auto start-up so you wouldn't burn up the starter. There is a reason the generator didn't start. Low battery, not enough fuel pressure, clogged air filter, bad starter... You just have to eliminate as many as you can visually. Rebooting the generator should clear the OC condition and you can try to start it manually.
