There is not a fault code "cf"

There is a fault code "of" for over frequency

To clear the code, follow the instructions at this link:

Resetting After Fault Shutdown; Continuous Power Mode - Kohler 12RES Operation And Installation Instructions Manual [Page 18]

If the unit will not run after the code is successfully cleared, a tec will have to come on site.

Good luck
