SOURCE: I have 16 hp Craftsman riding mower with a Kohler engine.

It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.

SOURCE: My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over

Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.

  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

Battery not charging


Measure the battery voltage with engine off. Start mower and measure again. If no change or lower when measured with engine off, you probably have either a bad diode assembly or a bad alternator or a poor ground to the alternator. If you don't have a voltmeter, you can pickup a cheap one from Harbor Freight.

My Craftsman 16 hp and 42 battery not charging is it normal?


get mower started and check the charging voltage at battery. it should be at least 13.5 at battery.check cables to battery and the inline charging fuse, its located somewhere in charging system.if its charging, but battery is still dead. it could be a bad battery. or alternator. . Examine the lawn mower electrical system by starting the lawn mower up, and then removing the battery. If the lawn mower turns off after the battery is disconnected, the lawn mower electrical system is the culprit.
its a good possibility that the battery is bad if it has been in use for 4-5 years.
check the fuses first. good-day !

Often mowers come with batteries which simply do not have the cranking amps to do the job. Have someone look at your mower and see if your attery has the sufficient cranking amps.
