Help. Kohler 12Res House Generator

Stationery Kohler 12Res located outside house. This unit is for electrical outages only; it is not used 24/7.
It had a bad breaker on the generator itself. The generator tech didn't
have a replacement with him, and so he provided a "bypass" temporary fix.
1) Will this band-aid fix cause any problems with overload, assuming I don't use the unit for washer, dryer, air conditioning, or electric range, but is connected to everything else including hot water heater?
2) The service co. is notoriously slow and I want the breaker replaced ASAP. Can the breaker be replaced by an electrician, or does he need to be a specialist with experience in dealing with the Kohler panel (inside house) and automatic transfer switch? Thanks.

I would stay on the service company to fix this if they are paying for it. If you are paying, just call an electrician.
Get it fixed. If you didn't need a breaker, it would not have come with one.,

Even tho this service is covered by a contract, the co. has no parts inventory and drags its feet when it comes to ordering the necessary parts. So, can the breaker be installed by a gen. contractor or does he need to be a specialist with Kohler experience?
The breaker itself is rectangular. It as "50" written on the off/on switch and near the switch is 10kA. - - Jack

I bet this is an off the shelf breaker any electrician could come up with. Kohler does't make breakers. They are usually Airpax.

I'm sure your states' Attorney General would love to hear about your "service company's" foot dragging.

Have the breaker installed by a licensed electrician and send the bill to the "service company". My $.02 worth . . .
