Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

Idle rolling kohler engine 14.5 hp 38" deck rear bagger. When the mower is in full throttle, the engine (without the deck engaged) does not run steady. The idle rolls, going high and low like it is running out of gas. I tried carbuerator cleaner which didn't help.

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

It sounds like you are putting it into choke mode. The choke is usually all the way up on tractors. And it will make it backfire and flood out. Just rev it high enough to work and don't go into the choke mode. hope this helps.

Mower belt will not engage ?


First is to check the belt diagram and make sure your belt is on the correct side of the engagement pulley. This would be the one on the left side of deck with a spring attached.

How to adjust carburetor on a 20HP V-Twin Kohler Engine, it will not idle properly


The problem is more likely that the gas has varnished inside the carb. Mine did the same thing and I cleaned the carb and it ran great afterwards.

Now I have the carb off again because someone dumped a bag of sugar into my gas tank and it got sugar all through the system and into the carb and engine. I couldn't believe how much sugar is in there. Now I'm trying to find a diagram or schematic to show the exact set up for reinstalling the choke and throttle linkage and the spring with the throttle.

It starts pinging and dies when you engage the mower


I know you don't want to hear this, but you've got some serious problems here. The motor needs to be inspected before it puts a rod through the block.

Mower will not drive


Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.
