On the Automatic Transfer Switch, there are two blue buttons. One is a
manual test switch. The other has a clock on it and this second one is
the exercise set button. Holding it down for 3 seconds will program
the unit to exercise without a load for 20 minutes at the same time
I prefer to exercise the test every two weeks and for less than 20
minutes. QUESTION: If I test it manually, will this override the
automatic testing that is currently programmed in? Hopefully, yes.
Thanks in advance.
OK, the weekly auto exercise worked fine for years but recently I've
had to re-program it every other week. It wouldn't hold for more than
2 weeks. But the last time I re-programmed it, it went into cool down
mode instead of exercise mode. So now, every Wednesday morning at 10
am I get 20 minutes of cool down. HELP! I want to just cancel the
auto mode and test it manually at my leisure. So I thought that by
pressing the manual button, it would override the auto program.
Otherwise, I don't know how to disengage from auto.
Last I knew, Kohler was known for good support, consider calling them
and asking them. They can probably also tell you why the control is
loosing settings, perhaps a backup battery in need of replacement.
