That sounds like a fuel supply problem, anywhere from the tank into the carb. Check that the tank is clean and that all the fuel lines and passages are clear. You can confirm this by spraying quick start into the intake and seeing if the engine will continue running while the quick start is sprayed into the engine.

No spark 19hp kohler

If the mower has been stored outside the magneto could have rust on it. Remove the top of the engine cover. There is a coil that's bolts to the block the the magnet of the magneto passes by as it rotates. See it there is rust on the magnet. If so. Take a fine grit sandpaper and remove the rust. The rust changes the air gap causing no voltage to the ignition coil. Thus no spark at the plug. I've corrected this problem twice with same symptoms as yours.

Spark plug smells like gas

I think we're missing a lot of info. or it's posted wrong! Is it because it will not run? What else is it exhibiting for a problem? I'm assuming you may have a Kohler motor in it, is the fuel tank level dropping in it while it's sitting? Get back to us with what caused you to tell us Spark Plug smells like gas.

Show me where spark plug is

i think that uses the kohler 19 or 20 hp engine the spark plug is just above the center of the wide valve cover it is easier to change if you remove the plastic upper cover from the engine it's only a few bolts and while it is off clean the fins off that's how the engine cools off

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!
