SOURCE: My Kohler Command 20 HP running fine, shut down, won't restart. How should I troubleshoot this problem?

check for fuel try starting fluid if it fires on that then you have spark if it does not then you have a spark problem and seeing the command engine has two coils check the safety switches on the mower side

Why does my B&S engine runs wide open even with throttle off 20 HP


Check the cable connection down near the engine, it should be attached to the throttle lever, it is not uncommon for the screws that clamp the cable to come loose

check the linkage on the top of the carburetor that controls the butterfly, it may be stuck. lubricate the shaft that runs through the carburetor with the butterfly attached to it. This is the Governor linkage

My briggs and stratton engine throttle cable and throttle body wont engage,always wide open


Are you sure it's not a new style Briggs that uses the 'throttle cable' just as a shut off? Many new mowers on;y start and run at High Speed

Vanguard V Twin 18 hp. monted in Cushman Motor scooter, runs great at W.O.T and at on quarter throttle, misses at range inbetween


Sounds like your carb needs the fuel/air mix adjusted..uses all the gas at high speed but has excess at low speeds...find your adjusting screw and at med throttle slowly screw it clockwise until the engine starts to sputter then back it out until it starts to sputter again then continue to do this until you reach ideal mix where it runs the best it can..then go slowly through the throttle up and down..when set..unjust your idle speed screw to your ideal idle speed..if this dies not fix ..carb will bed cleaned or rebuilt. Good luck.. Note always push or pull your throttle handle slowly to position avoids gas load up causing sputter and backfire.

Have 22HP BS V-Twin in a 2010 Husqvarna rider w/25 total hours. Recently won't cold start without priminig. It will crank and crank cold til the battery runs down. A shot of starting fluid and it runs...


nearly all petrol mower engines need to have the 'choke' engaged to start from cold. This enriches the fuel mixture, and is similar to priming. If there is a prime 'button' then you will probably have to use this all the time. This is normal.

However, you should check with your dealer to see if this is an unusual situation.
