SOURCE: Electrical cable size requirement

This is an answer to your question only. The safest thing to do is hire an electrician to do it. There may be factors you don't recgonize that a skilled eye would pick up on.

The proper size wire is #4 copper or #3 Aluminum. THHN is the most common and most versatile type in conduit. a #6 ground wire is ok. Stranded pulls a lot easier than solid and do yourself a favor and buy some wire pulling lubricant just in case.
Make sure to obey all manufacturer's instructions. If you use aluminum make sure to place anti-oxidation compound or Nolox on your lugs in the panel. Please write back with anymore questions.

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.

The starter on the 12res Kohler generator just hums (spinning sound). It doesn't engage the flywheel. Do I need a new starter?


OC is over crank failed to start. It will normally try 3 times before giving this error. You need to disconnect the battery and remove the starter motor, make sure it is free to move / spin. Either the starter has seized or the engine has siezed. Make sure the engine is free to rotate also, once you remove the starter you will see the engine flywheel there, removing the spark plugs will make it easier to rotate the engine. I would guess it is more the starter.

I have kohler 12res 60hz generator can I covert to 50hz ? If yes than how can ?


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

12RES alternator


There MUST be a generator attached to the engine of your genset to recharge the battery as starting current greatly reduces the charge of the battery. The solar panel was designed to "trickle" the battery to keep the battery "fresh".

Kohler Model 12RES LP gas generator starts normally but immediately shuts down with over-voltage alarm. Control panel replaced.


Sounds like a short in one of the windings to me. Can you verify that the engine rpm is not exceeding specs? If you can modify the engine speed Id say slow it down and see what the voltage read is.

Running when in standby mode


Are you sure this is not normal?

Read your manual.

Most of the larger generators do a test run once a week or so to make sure everything is working ok in case of a power falure.
