Question about Cub Cadet SLT1054 54 in. 26 HP Kohler V-Twin Hydrostatic Front-Engine Riding Mower

1 Answer

Still working on a fix for my cub cadet lawn tractor. Starts and runs for a few seconds then quits. I am wondering if this symtom fits a carbuerator solenoid that isn't working. The solenoid clicks once when I put 12v on it but doesn't pulsate. does the solenoid get activate the same time as the spark plug to make it open and close or does it get steady power and should pulse on its own?

If your talking about the solenoid sticking out the bottom of the fuel bowl that is just the fuel shutoff solenoid. when you turn key on that gets 12v hot all the time your running. when you turn off mower the solenoid extends outward inside the bowl to shutoff fuel going up to the venturi. if you take the bowl off and hold it against metal for ground you can watch the solenoid pull inward when you turn key on and outward when key off.

Testimonial: "Turns out the solenoid was only getting 9 volts of power. I re routed to a different spot and it works fine. Thanks for the help!"

My cub cadet model 12A-18M7010 will not start. It has an automatic choke. No primer. I've changed the gas, checked the plug, cleaned the carbuerator. What could it be?


Also check the air filter. Some times if the paper filter is wet or clogged it will choke out the machine by not allowing air in to the ignition chamber.
