Kohler 5ecd overheats after about 6 mins (shutdown with error code HE. Withing the last 2 hours of use, the impeller has been changed as well as oil and spark plugs. At one point the coolant lever was low in the over flow bottle. I added coolant to the over flow bottle. After that I looked like there was a leak from the overflow bottle, fluid under it. I filled it up, ran the generator and the fluid level in the overflow came up and did not leak again so a leak in the overflow bottle was a read herring.From what I've read from amateurs on the blogs it looks like there is an air bubble in the system.Any thoughts?Thanks,Greg

Hi Greg, my name is***** read what you wrote. Is the generator pumping water? Can you see water coming out of the generators exhaust system?

lots of water, sea strainer clear.
Marine Electronics Expert: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 months ago

Got it. I see you replaced the impeller, and you are getting plenty of water out of the exhaust, so that part is fine. I dont' see any mention of the thermostat though. The next step here would be replacing that thermostat. Has that been done yet?

There should be a button on your screen that says "call me", if you hit that it will send you the options for doing a phone call.

I did see it password ***** wrong for my PayPal account (stored on a different computer) and now I can't get back to the call screen. Should i ask a new but the same question?
Marine Electronics Expert: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 months ago

To be honest this system is all automated, and I have no way to force anything, so I think that would be the best thing to do. What you can do is do a refund on this question, and close this out. Then go ahead and start a new question topic from starch and stick my name in it, and I will see it -Jason
