Hey, hope everyone fairing well after hurricane, if it affected you.
I could use the manuals as well, went to drag out my unit when I started having some issues with my bigger genset only to find quite a few wires, including spark plug wire, chewed through by some little vermin.

Hi, I could use the 5CKM21 service manual as well. After Irma, my unit developed a scary sounding knock. I'd really appreciate it, thanks.

P-Dot Trott, the manuals should be in your mailbox. At least with Gmail I can have some confidence they will actually be delivered.

Default Kohler Confidant 5 5CKM21 Service Manual

I am excited about this wonderful forum.

I was looking for the service manual for the Kohler 5ckm21. In this forum I have seen several posts asking this manual, but I see that the only way to acquire it is through an email by any member. I would appreciate any fellow member who possesses share it with me through my email: scot68gt@yahoo.com.

Thank you in advance,

Florida Sweatheads

Default Re: Kohler Confidant 5 5CKM21 Service Manual

Hello all,

I also have a Kohler Confidant 5 5CKM21 generator in my RV and am having issues with it. I would like to get a copy of the service manual: hcbradley3@verizon.net.

the problem I am having right now is that the unit will run with no load for about 5 minutes and then shut off. I see that I am not starving for fuel because the fuel filter is mostly fun and the RV fuel tank is full. I can also run a small load if it falls within the 5 minutes of run time. If I put a large load on it say the AC unit it will run for a few minutes then shut off. if I try to restart it after it shuts off it will not restart. this all started to happen after I did an oil change like I do once a year. not sure how an oil change would cause this type of problem just stating all of the known facts I have.

Thanks for your help.
Harry

Hello I am also new to this site. I would like the service and parts manuals also please. I picked up a Confidant 5 for a 100 bucks a few weeks ago. I got it up and running with no issues, wired it into my shop and it powers everything just fine. I got it to run my off grid cabin and to charge my batteries. My inverter can only handle 2500 watts and my current generator is a generac standby 14000 watt generator that screams at almost 4k rpm. Has anyone converted these to propane so they can start still start with a remote start switch? Thanks for the help Jacob.loepp@gmail.com
