20 Most Recent Kohler 14resa 14kw Home Emergency Backup Generator Questions & Answers


I had this fault show this morning. Very alarming, as we have a typhoon coming theough tomorrow!

Turned out to be an easy fix. When I hit start the solenoid engaged but nothing moved. Then I saw the fault message and thought "Large $$$$!"

It was just a bad 12 Volt battery, and when it couldn't crank it threw the fault code. I replaced the battery, pulled the 3 fuses on the control panel (mine is the 20 Kw model), and the codes cleared, and she fired right up.

The advice here and on a couple other sites about powering down the panel to clear fault codes saved me a lot of time, money and aggravaion, not to mention a freezer full of food (knowing the Guam Power Authority, and knowing typhoons, the power WILL go down tomorrow.

The battery charger is defective, as you can start it by jumping it off means it is just a low battery. without it running measure battery voltage, it should be around 12V then plug the charger back in, it should climb to around 13.8B with a good battery. If not have the float charger checked.

The engine is failing to run after a commanded start. Repeatedly.

Are there any faults listed on the control display? If display is dark then likely a battery issue. Check battery voltage with a Digital Multi Meter (DMM). It should be at least 12.5VDC.

Sounds Like possibly the regulator is the issue.
Flightsystems Can test these to see if it is good or not.
also here is a link for the service manual

the parts manual is a tp-5317 which I do not have . You said its a dec2? or a fast response 2? What is the part number off the main circuit board in the control box?

if you have an scr pack, that has 6 pins, there are two for ac, two for gates, and two for the excitation field.
The two gate wires come off your adc controller.

Safety shutdowns:
  1. Loss of coolant
  2. High water temperature
  3. Low oil pressure
Likely one of these. If no indicators at a panel check at the connector.
