SOURCE: kohler 12kw generator starts but shuts down after 3sec

Your gas pressure is too low and you may not have a large enough supply pipe. You need at least 10 inches of water column with the engine running to operate an LP vapor fueled engine. Because the engine is starving for fuel, its governor opens the throttle to WOT (so it goes to high revs) but there isn't any fuel to make horsepower with so the output voltage falls and the undervoltage alarm trips.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Kohler Marine Generator that says OC on the menu when I try to start it. Any ideas?

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

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

SOURCE: The monitoring system of our Kohler propane

The monitoring system of our Kohler propane generator has sent a "UU" message. What does this mean as it causes the generator to shut down 10 seconds after starting? Also how can this be corrected?

No be careful !!! the muffler is designed to give a certain engine back pressure and emissions. Changing this or piping it out can increase back pressure to dangerous levels. If you build an enclosure make sure the air flow in and out is sufficient and the hot air out does not get sucked back in as cooling air (short cycle) engine damage and fire can result !

First start up


Try disconencting the remote start wires between the transfer switch and the generator, if ot still does it you have a bad control board. If it stops, then check the transfer switch for correct wiring of utility and generator power wires, also check with an ohm meter if the run contacts in the transfer switch are closed, that would indicate loss of sensing, or bad board

Kohler 20resal 100amp transfer switch RXT will not auto start?


Disconnect generator remote start wires in the ATS. Put an ohm meter across the remote start terminals in the ATS and kill utility power, you should here a click in the ATS and the ohm meter should indicate close to zero ohms. If it does then your ATS is fine and the problem is gen control board or wiring between the two. If it does not show that value, then the start relay in the ATS is suspect.

My gen starts and runs for 1 min or so then dies restarts then dies again and again. if i start it under load ( turn on air con) it will run for 10 min then die allen


Is there a fault?? All UL listed generators including Kohler are required to lockout on a fault on shut down. This really sounds like a problem with your 2-wire auto start connection between your automatic transfer switch and genset. RDT model automatic transfer switch it is the 2 middle wires on the green connector and terminals 3&4 in the generator. close to run and open to shut down. Any open at any time will cause the unit to shut down. The 12 will shut down instantly upon an open because your 5 minute cool down is built into the transfer switch.

Overcrank error message


The 'overcrank' error simply means it tried to start but never actually started. It cranked for an extended period. Check the fuel and starting issues you would normally check to start the engine.
