Default Kohler 4ckm21-rv problems

Hello everyone,

This Kohler generator model 4ckm21-rv is installed in a 1991 Winni. It starts and runs fine for about ten minutes, then looses spark. It will not restart or even fire for about an hour or so, (not even with the start switch held on) then it will run fine for about the same amount of time. Voltage is very steady at 120.3. When it is cold, I get three lights that light up in the pcb. After it stops I only get two. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this model or know of a place to get them?

Charlie tried to mail it to you but your email server rejected it, probably thought it was spam. Add it to the accepted mail list and then email me again jamesdavis7@cox.net

Hi,

Do you have PDF's of the manual for the 4ckm21?

I am looking all over for it...
I'll buy the manuals if you only have hard copies.

thanks
Harold
