Broadcrown diesel generator With John Deere Diesel engine has a coolant high temp alarm

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just checked the levels on the coolant and oil. Checked the belt which appears to be fine no slip. Radiator is bleeding some coolant out the over flow hose. But made sure the level is where it was recommended to be and it is i it again. Not a whole lot but noticeable.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

It runs for awhile then it shuts itself down with the high coolant temp reading

Radiator bleeds some coolant out overflow hose.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No sounds of bubbling or steaming from radiator.

Hi

Sorry for the delay

Very busy morning, then your coolant sensor failed, that will need to be replaced

It will be at the thermostat housing or in the top of the head

I hope this helps you
