SOURCE: 2 mowers 19.5 hp and 27hp kohler, both die when you let off brake

Sure sounds like an elusive safety switch to me. There's usually one on the seat, the blade control, and the brake.

SOURCE: what kind of oil for a husqvarna riding mower?

Yes Briggs and Stratton recommends sae 30 in most all their engines even overhead valve (OHV)
Kohler uses 10w-30 in most of their overhead valve engines

Briggs has their own bottled oil with their label and additives and can find at lowes
Kohler the same

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!

I changed the oil on my sears riding mower and it run fine for over an hour and then started smoking real bad.


What weight of motor oil did you put into the tractor? And how much? The capacity of the crankcase is 1.7L (1.75 qt.). The recommended engine oil is SAE 30. If you put a 10W-30 product into the engine and operated it under heavy load or heat conditions, the oil may not be capable of providing sufficient lubrication.
