Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

I have a White 54" cut 25 hp vtwin Kholer engine. Went start up and needed choke out to keep going like it was starving for gas, but also pto (blades) would not engage. Next evening fine, but did not mow. Next day back to problem. Hr. meter was not on either. Could this be in the ignition switch? Thanks for any help. Dave

If ignition switch is a suspect, next time if the problems acts up, try wiggling and slightly turning the key in the ignition. If you notice any differences, then you have bad electrical contacts in the ignition switch assembly. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pto cuts off while mowing

check the safety switches start with the one on the seat then the one on the clutch/brake pedal then the reverse cut out switch bypass them one at a time with a paper clip to test them also look for a loss connection at all the same switches

3cyl 993cc daihatsu engine starts and runs then shuts down could this have something to do with the fuel cut solonoid


If you can keep it running with the choke set, your engine is starving for fuel, your fuel filter, or carb is clogged. disconnect the fuel line to the carb and check for flow. Fuel cut would do just that, cut ALL fuel so choking would not matter.

Engine surges won't run with out choke and then it stalls


If the engine surges and won't run without choke it is starving for fuel. Best place to start is the fuel filter. After the fuel filter, pull the fuel line off of the carburetor and place a container under the fuel line to catch the fuel. Crank the engine over and watch for the amount of fuel being pumped through the line. There should be a good stream of fuel with each pulse from the pump. Chances are the pump diaphragm is getting weak and it cannot keep enough fuel in the carb to run proper. Check those items and let me know if it helps, Daniel.
