Engine shut off

I have a Craftsman GT5000 lawn tractor w/kohler 25hp v-twin engine, model# 917.276040. While mowing, the engine shut off as though i had turned the key off. Now it won't start or even turn over. There is no power to the lights either. What would you suggest I do...?

    Thanks a heap. There's a new battery on it and the terminals are clean but i haven't checked the fuse yet. Any other sugestions if the fuse isn't the case...?

    lights don't work. Fuse blows when ignition is turned on start. I suspected a short in the brake pedal saftey switch. I pulled the switch on the brake pedal and jumped the white and replaced the fuse. Turn the ignition and the fuse blew. I then jumped the black wires and tried again, the fuse blew again.

    do you lights work without the engine running?

    or does the engine have to be running and they brighten as the engine speed increases?

    Make sure your negative ground wire to the frame is tight from the battery

    keep in touch we will fix it with your feedback too.

How do I wire a 18hp Briggs & Stratton engine to a craftsman GT5000 lawn mower


I dont have all your anwers. In my experience, Kohler frequently has wires to start, run and stop the engine. They also frequently have a low oil and/or high heat control (engine shut down). Also expect a wire from the charging system. On your tractor, you probably have similar plus 'operator presence' wires. These wires require to you to be sitting in the seat for the machine to operate - a seat switch for example. On my tractor, I can depress the 'brake' (which isnt exactly a brake in fact) and the engine will run when I dismount. However, if the mower is engaged, no matter what, if I get off the tractor, the engine shuts down.

You will have to determine what every wire is for and connect it properly. You may lose some engine 'functionality' or tractor safety features. It is never easy to put a Ford starter on a Chevy. Good luck with your project.

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!
