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.

SOURCE: Generac 43903 standby Generator overspeed indicator on starting

I have a generator that did the same thing. It would start and then stop within a few seconds. The more expensive generators have an oil level safety switch to prevent the engine from burning up. There is usually a wire connecting to the switch on the outside of the engine near the oil fill hole. Remove this wire and try to start the generator. If it runs without a problem then it is the switch. You need to remove the switch and take it apart carefully and clean it. There is a small float inside the assembly. When the oil runs low the float allows the switch to short to ground which kills the spark to the spark plug. Hope that helps.

I had this same issue with my NP 50G. I replaced the oil pressure & over heat sensor and fuel filter but the problem still existed.

After that I took the fuel bowel off the carb which had some dirt in it. Sprayed it with carb cleaner and that solved the issue. Hope this helps......

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 exercise causes engine spikes and gasping for fuel.


On exercise it isn't under load, you may have too much gas pressure, have the gas pressure and fuel/air ratio checked on the mixer

Kohler automatic transfer switch RDT CFNA 0100B. I can set it to exercise and it will do so for several weeks then it forgets. No fault shown.


Product manual does not have troubleshoot section.
The operation might be normal, and within expected parameters, or it might have a glitch.
Suggest you contact Kohler Power directly:

Kohler 12 RES - Unit fails to start occasionally. Attempting a manual start by placing switch in run position, cause a loud click, but no cranking. The panel says CC. This morning I put a jump start...


I finally solved the intermittant starting problem on my Kohler 12 RES by replacing the strater and the starter relay. I was also experiencing the occassional OC indication, red blinking LEDs on the ATS, and intermittent non-starts during the weekly exercises. The problem happened during power outages a couple times also. If I flipped the start switch between auto and run quickly the generator would occasionally start. Once started, the generator runs fine. I ordered a new starter, which included the starter solenoid. By the way, don't worry about the genuine part thing..the old starter was a Delco made overseas. I ordered a new starter online for $85 (6744N) and it was indentical to the genuine Kohler starter. Replaced the starter and it improved the problem but did not totally solve the intermittent starting. Ordered the starter relay (GM49746) replaced it and the problem is solved.

Although A bit inconvienent this does seem to be the norm for some Kohler units. Actually a small price to pay rather than having a technician come out to replace the ATS control board.

What is the proper proceidure to set exercise timer on a briggs generator model # 01938 and what year was this model manufactured? thank you

This link will take you to their site where you can download their manual.

Setting Exercise Timer
The Home Standby Generator is equipped with an exercise
timer that will start and exercise the system once every
seven days. During this exercise period, the unit runs for
approximately 20 minutes and then shuts down. Electrical
load transfer DOES NOT occur during the exercise cycle
(unless an utility power outage occurs).
A switch on the control panel is labeled “Set Exercise”
(depicted on page 10).The specific day and the specific time
of day this switch is pressed is programmed into the
control board memory.This date and time is then used to
automatically initiate the system exercise cycle.
To perform the Set Exercise procedure:
1. Choose the day and time you want your Home
Standby Generator to exercise.
2. On that day and time, set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL
switch to OFF.
3. Press and hold down the “Set Exercise” switch for two
seconds.
4. Set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to AUTO.“Set
Exercise” is complete.
For example, if you press the “Set Exercise” switch on
Sunday morning at 10:00 AM, the unit will run an exercise
cycle the following Sunday at 10:00 AM (+/- 1/2 hour).
NOTE: “Set Exercise” will only work if the unit is in the
Automatic mode and this exact procedure is followed.The
exerciser does not need to be re-set if the 15 Amp fuse is
removed or changed.The exerciser will need to be re-set if
the 12 Volt DC battery is disconnected.
If you want to change the day and time the unit exercises,
simply perform the “Set Exercise” procedure at the exact
weekday and time you want it to take place.
• To prevent possible injury that might be caused by such sudden
starts, always set the AUTO/OFF/MANUAL switch to OFF.
• Remove the 15 Amp fuse before working on or around the
generator or transfer switch.

My Kohler 17RES has stopped doing it's scheduled weekly exercise. How can I get it exercising again?


On your Automatic Transfer Switch ( the little gray box you see on the right in the picture above) you have two blue buttons. One is a Manual test switch. The other has a clock on it and this is your exercise set button. Hold it down for a FULL 3 seconds if you want it to excercise without a load (not powering your home) Hold it down for a FULL 6 seconds if you want it to exercise with a load every week. Your generator will start and run for 20 minutes, and then shut down. Now every week your generator will exercise at the time and day that you pushed the set button.
