SOURCE: I have a 1982 Evinrude 35 hp motor.

My smaller johnson had a pickup tube in the housing. With your alarm you only know when it is too hot. You do not know how close you are to setting the alarm at full throttle; it can be running hotter than it should then too. I would drop the lower unit, pull the sending unit and try to force water through the sending unit hole. This should backflush the head. Backflush the impeller housing too.

SOURCE: the kohler steam unit keeps shutting down prematurely

I've been struggling with this exact error for the past week and fixed it last night. The Error 5 message was misleading in my case and actually was caused by the steam outlet inside the shower and, even after replacing the entire unit and getting the same error, i fixed it in two seconds. Since this was one of the posting i encountered during my frantic searches, i thought i would come back and share my blog posting on this error and my fix:

SOURCE: I have a Kohler K-7 steam generator/shower and

There is a float valve interior of the steam generator that supplies water to the generator unit. There are no parts available for that unit, and Kohler was useless re: repair. I have the same unit and mine is doing the same thing. I took it apart and there is a washer worth about a nickel that is inside the unit. I flipped the washer over in mine and it worked for about a week....then back to the same problem.

SOURCE: error code Prr

I had this problem, and checked the connections, emptied the resivour, and refilled it, and it had no effect.
To fix the problem, I ran the regular shower on hot for 10 minutes to warm up the shower chamber. Then, when I pressed the power button on the steam shower, it displayed "110" as normal.
The problem with "Prr" appears to be that the temp sensor is reporting a value out of range. Heating the shower chamber (and therefore sensor) provides a good value to the sensor, which then allows the shower to operate.
Try warming up your sensor by running the shower.

Check the inlet fuel pressure, on exervise there is no load, when power is out it is loaded and demands more fuel. Also check for bugs blocking gas regulators vents etc

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.

Check valve is the cold water inlet---valve keeps water from siphoning back out causing unit to boil dry. Probably is quite a bit of lime inside from "hard" water

The kohler steam unit keeps shutting down prematurely


Since I don't have your model number for this, I am going to attempt an answer for you. Yes, there could be a filter but not always. Sometimes, the sensor on these units can become stuck closed and is sending a false error. Does the unit seem to be working? If it is, then it probably is a false signal. If not, the there could be debris that has gotten into the water lines. Either way, if the unit is new, then it will be under some sort of warranty. I would contact either Kohler or an authorized service rep.
