I have a walker 18hp with kohler engine. Started it up and it ran for about a minute and cut off. turn the ignition and it won't make a sound. cleaned battery terminals and changed spark plug.


Running for about a minute sounds like fuel starvation. There could be an obstruction in the fuel tank, which allows the engine only the fuel that is in the fuel line, until it quits.
Why it won't start again is probably another matter.

25hp kohler hot start problem. Replaced fuel filter, plugs and cleaned air filter - same problem. it won'd restart when hot.


3 possibles come to mind
fuel vaporization in the line to the carby or in the carby bowl (check float level adjustment)
valves are being held open when hot--- valve stem lengths increase reducing tappet clearance___adjust valves when hot
check coil/ ignition module for failure when hot as they can open circuit ./ short circuit when internal components fail from heat

What to do? I have a craftsman GT 5000 with a 25 HP Kohler and it will run for about 10 minutes and then start cutting out and die. I have changed the fuel filter with no resolve. What should I look at...


Make sure the choke is coming off. Check the compression.Many times the head gasket may leak when the engine heats up. Also check for spark sometimes the magneto can heat up and quit after running a while. See if it will run if you prime with a little fuel, if so ,some of the Kohler engines this size have a fuel pump that could be failing. Check for vapor lock. It takes air and fuel properly mixed, spark and compression any of these missing the engine dies.

What would be the cause of a Kohler 25hp twin, backfiring through carb from one cylinder


now the kohler v-twin does have a bit of a problem with camshafts in this size range , your gonna need to remove valve cover on head side that you suspect is bad , verify that valves move in order (one at a time) as you turn over by hand with spark plugs removed (both sides)

I have a Kohler 12.5 KW marine generator on my houseboat that has a problem I was hoping you could help me with. Specs: Kohler 12.5 KW 79 CID 23HP Mfg date 9-10-96 Gen Engine Serial # 06919 L-29-R


there are some magnets behind the flywheel to cause the battery charging system to recharge the batt. sometimes they come unbonded/loose from the flywheel and cause the engine to become hard to turn. I would start there first.

When u adj a kohler carb you adj fuel not air. Always adj the high speed then low speed. Then adj the curb idle. 1.5 turns out is a good starting point. Then tweak it after its warmed up. Hope this helps

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!
