    Default Oil CH6 on GT2544

    Hello All,
    I cranked up the mower the other day and noticed the LCD readout reads: "Oil CH6" or "CH6 Oil". I have 50.4 hours on it. Any ideas what this is all about? If it has anything to do with changing the oil, well, I changed the oil with the Kohler maintenance kit about 2 months ago.

    I think that 6 is supposed to the G for CHG, short for "Change". The hour meters on the newer cubs are preset to prompt for oil changes at regular intervals; Something like 50, 100, 200, etc.. hrs. The message will then clear itself after a few hours run time.

    Here's what the manual says about the oil change indicator on the hour meter.

    The LCD will alternately flash the recorded hours and CHG and OIL for five minutes after every 50 hrs of recorded operation. The maintenance interval lasts for two hours(from 50-52, 100-102, 150-152, etc). The LCD will flash as described above for five minutes every time the tractor engine has been started during the maintenance interval.
