How to find Kohler engine model number

Getting to Know Your Kohler Engine

Do you know how to find your Kohler engine model number?

Kohler engine identification numbers (model, specification and serial) are essential to the efficient repair, locating the correct replacement parts and engine replacement.

These numbers are printed on a silver decal, which is normally affixed to the blower housing of the Kohler engine. You should make a note of your engine identification numbers in your owner’s manual for future reference.

It’s not uncommon for the decal to fall off and get lost.  Without your model, spec and serial numbers of your Kohler Engine finding replacement parts will be almost impossible.

If you’re like me and know you’ll loose the engine owners manual also, you can take photos of all your equipment and engine model decals and save them in your phone for future reference.

A friend of mine scans all of his owners manuals to Evernote and then recycles the manuals.  Not a bad idea.

Within most series (except XT) of Kohler engines are various models. Use model number to locate manuals for your engine.

Spec Number

The specification number identifies specific features and variances within a model.

Serial Number

The serial number is unique to each individual engine. It allows Kohler dealers and technicians to keep track of your engine and its repair and maintenance history.
