Kohler Generator Works Every Time
My Kohler generator works very well. When the power goes out. I count to 30 and the power comes back on and the entire home has power again. It runs a test every week for 25 minutes to make sure it is operating correctly and then goes to sleep until the next outage.

It is very important to buy a generator that can handle a 5 ton air conditioning unit. Not all generators will do that when needed.

Kohler is quiet and will pick up load as required as needed.

Once the power comes... more

Runs Like A Charm
I received the generator fully intact. After installation it works like a charm and handles the entire home including the pool.

Nice Unit
I installed one of these units for a customer. They ordered the generator, separate xfer switch and battery warmer blanket. I ran the electric lines and gas line for the unit. I ran 3 conduits from the transfer switch to the generator. 1 is for the main power output of the generator back to the transfer switch, 1 is for the communication wiring between the xfer switch and generator, and one is for a 20 amp 120 volt power line to supply the battery charger and battery warming blanket.

Great, Quality Product!
I've lived in southeast Louisiana for most of my 63 years, where tropical weather systems tend to go at times, so I'm very versed in home automatic stand-by generators, having used them in three different homes over the past 7 years.

My first stand-by generator was literally installed the week prior to Katrina hitting the New Orleans area in August 2005. My plumber didn't show up to make the natural gas connection, consequently we weren't able to use the generator during Katrina. I was... more

Five Stars!
1. Best Pricing from Electric Generators Direct
2. Trucking delivery (free) to remote Maine location was excellent!
3. Installation was done by local Master Elecrtician.
3. OnCue remote readout option was the very reason for purchasing the 14RESA Kohler. This software is superb, and a must have!
4. My wife and I are surprised by the quiet performance. Less noisy than a high quality portable Honda that we replaced.
5. There is one apparent mistake in the installation manual and hole... more

Responded Beautifully
I had this model of generator installed after Hurricane Irene. I used one of the agents recommended on the Kohler website who was somewhat pricey, but I wanted make sure I would have somebody to call on if there were any glitches. He installed the latest version of this.

There were several problems with the self-test software and he needed to return several times to put in software patches (apparently a number of units of this latest model were sent out with defective software). This... more

Bought This For Our Off Grid Home Standby Power To Our Solar
We were very excited about this propane generator with auto start. Super excited about the 5 yr warranty. Electric Generator Direct was a wonderful way to go. Delivery was exceptional. Loved our truck driver. Unfortunately I'm not happy that our 5 yr warranty is no good for us. The fine print AFTER purchase says that it is only 18 mos if you are not connected to a reliable source of power. Fine print we didn't see until after the rep came out to check our hook up work. He's going to cost us... more
Pros: Quiet, Price, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Bad Instructions, The Instructions Were Very Vague Had To Call A Rep To Clear Up

"my delivery truck driver was super amazing. He showed up exactly the same time as my propane guy. My husband was out of town and so it was going to just be me and the 400+# generator. All together we wriggled and made it all work to where the generator was placed exactly where it needed to be. Wanted to tip the driver but he was gone in a snap. Very good service from both the driver and my propane guy at Comstock Propane"

Junk
Brand new generator and will not run. It runs for a few seconds and shuts down telling me there is a locked rotor. Brand new I thought it would run for at least five minutes. The worst part now I can't get help. You have our money and now you have shut down your tech line which was why I bought from you.

Margaret,
Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the generator. I can tell you that the number one issue with standby generators are fuel related. Many times the gas line is too small or the pressure is not where it should be. I would recommend using the following link to find a local Kohler service center who will be able to look at the unit and get it repaired.
