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!

Stephen Bent/damage blade or spindle, check your deck for support link pin missing, damaged or rusted out brackets, blade spindle loose/mount damages or rusted out, missing deck support spring,wheel/roller if equipped, damaged blades, Recheck tire pressure and front steering axles for bent/damage, etc.
When measuring deck for level, measure at blade tips not the deck on a flat level surface. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I level deck


Park your mower on a level surface and loosen the bolts that hold the mower deck up on both sides. There are some good YouTube videos that show you how. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQQXtcMzbGA

Model # 917257620 need a diagram on how to put the deck belt on!!!


From the lower motor pulley moving back to inbetween the two smaller inside forward pulleys, around the back of the pulleys and out to the front of the larger blade pulleys. Around the blade pulleys to the back and across the back of the deck to the other pulley.

It is easier to visualize it that way, but putting it on start with wrapping it around the blade pulleys and then go to the back side of the smaller idler and tension pulleys and then inbetween them to the motor pulley.

Let me know how it goes, but that should get you going.

My Craftsman 42" lawn tractor


I would suggest checking your owner's manual. There is a leveling process and my Craftsman wasn't leveled at the factory. Once I leveled mine, it cut fine. If you can't find it in your manual, google leveling craftsman mower deck.

Uneven grass cutting


I have seen dull blades, blades not installed right and an un-level deck cause that.

Its not mowing evenly


You need to level the deck. On most mowers you level the deck from side to side evenly but have the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back.
