  1. I bought my Coleman HS700 new in June of 2015 and this is the second problem with it and I rarely use it. In December of 2018, after only 20 hours of operation it failed to start and I troubleshot it to the fuel pump not getting voltage. The local shop repaired the wire harness with the wire that went to the fuel pump. This design has some definite wiring issues. I'm not thrilled but this vehicle did cost about 2/3rds what the more widely known brands cost so I think it boils down to the old adage, you get what you pay for. I'm only into this for $300.00 in repairs on the $9,300
  2. Well, no one replied with the correct temperature so I assume no one knows. I'm guessing it is pretty high since the sensor I tested turned on at approximately 190 degrees. My HS700 boiled over so the temperature had to be over 225 or as much as 265 degrees in a sealed radiator system and a 50/50 mixture of water and antifreeze. I tested the new sensor by putting a little less than an inch of water in a bowl and bringing the water to a boil in my microwave. My meter measures 00.0 when there is continuity or the sensor is shorted to allow 12 volts through to turn on the fan. My meter
  3. Perhaps some people are not clear as to how they tested the fan? At first, I did not jumper past the sensor, I ran12 volts straight to the blue wire on the fan connector. It still proves the fan is working but it does not indicate that the senor would not have worked if the conditions were met. The test in the video directly bypasses the sensor making it the likely cause if the fan turns on. It would help if we knew the specs to trip the sensor. Perhaps if we removed the sensor and placed a temporary plug in the radiator to keep the coolant in and then placed the sensor in a cup of heated
  4. Hello again kenfain, I found some helpful videos on YouTube. And I am now confident that my radiator temperature sensor is faulty. Bypassing it alone made the fan work. Heck, now that I know how to bypass it I will probably carry a paperclip with me in the glove box. In an emergency I could put water in the UTV and make the fan work until I got home and could properly repair the vehicle. I've ordered a temperature sensor so it may take a week or more to get back here with a confirmation that it fixed the problem. Most folks probably go to their favorite place for parts but I tho
  5. Hi kenfain, Thank you for your reply kenfain! I understand your reply to some extent but approaching a problem is different depending on the situation. I know three things for certain 1. my coolant boiled over and out of my system (so I replaced it). 2. I have not opened the system for any reason since I bought it new 4 years ago (until now to refill it). 3. the fan works when power is applied. Your suggestion "to find out why that fan isn't working" is exactly what I'm trying to do. To me it is fairly obvious that the fan is NOT being told to come on by some sensor. My job is t
  6. I just joined the 'overheating club' yesterday when my HiSun HS700 overheated (boiled over). I have not tried any of the troubleshooting steps except to add the missing coolant back in and provide 12 volts to the fan. Like the others, the fan worked when I supplied the power but it is not getting the signal to turn on from the sensors. 1. Can anyone offer an explanation as to how the air gets into the system? I bough this UTV new several years ago and cannot imagine how the coolant got out or the air got in unless there is a slow leak somewhere. 2. Also, can some one provide

  8. I do believe the "CFMOTO" CF188-011300 I used successfuly looks identical to the "HiSun" in your pictures Kannon09. It was only $7.99 and shipping was free if you want to give that one a try. By the way, I believe the engine block is the same for the 400, 500, & 700 UTV's.
  9. Not only let us know if it works but how much it cost too if you don't mind. Please post a picture of the gasket side of the filter you are getting. I noticed a significant difference between my original and the one that failed. The one that worked was very much like the original. Others have posted that they used the brand/type that I had fail so I may have had o defective one. I could not see what made it (the FRAM) leak severely, but it did.
  10. Just a follow-up note. I looked through the cross-reference oil filter list provided by Vaughn and the other provided by Travis and noticed that they both list the Kawasaki 49065-7010. I park my UTV in my garage and I park my Zero turn mower in the shed. I have not tried the filter on the UTV yet but the Kawasaki engine on my lawn mower uses the Kawasaki 49065-7010 and I have a new spare for the mower in the shed. If I had noticed this in the beginning (if I had these cross-reference listings), I more than likely would not have run into my problem. I will try the Kawasaki filter
  11. Thank you also Vaughn. Late yesterday afternoon I received the CFMOTO CF188-011300 that I had ordered and I put a paper towel under the old filter, removed it, cleaned the seating area and put a light coat of oil on the new CFMOTO filter gasket and installed it. NO LEAKS ! The gasket is very different from the FRAM. A side view of the FRAM gasket would look like a small hard (firm) square. A side view of the Chinese filter would look like a wider soft oval. Since the CFMOTO is not easily available locally for me, I downloaded the cross-reference list than Vaughn provided fo
  12. Thank you Travis, I will order one of the WIX filters when I find the right one for my UTV. Would you please post a pointer to the cross-reference chart you are using? In the mean time I have ordered a "CFMOTO" CF188-011300 on line to see if that works.
  13. I have a HiSun HS700 (686cc one cyl.) and needed to do it's first oil change. I found that the Chinese oil filter CF188-011300 had a Fram cross-reference to a PH4967 so I picked the Fram filter up at Walmart along with the recommended 10W40 motor oil. I removed the oil fill plug and then the drain plug, followed by removal of the original factory oil filter. The oil drain plug and original filter were extremely tight. I did not have the 67mm oil filter wrench and bent the filter up pretty badly using channel lock pliers. Replaced the drain plug, and the filter and the fill plug after
