My Cub Cadet oil light was on it read 100 hours

My Cub Cadet oil light was on. It read 100 hours and I needed to change the oil. I added about a quart of oil thinking it was about that low. Now, it is blowing white clouds of smoke when I run it. Do I have a major problem or did I over fill it with oil? What should I do as first sep?

Yes, you overfilled it with oil. Drain the oil and fill to the correct level. If you are not sure how much to put in, add small amounts until the dipstick shows a full reading.

My 04 cub cadet m60 tank with a 27hp Koehler just up and quits after 20 min. I just changed oil and filter and "change oil " is blinking. Help

I'm not a Cub dealer but the "change oil" light should reset itself after usually an hour of use. check the oil level for the no start. if it has an oil level switch and is low, there will be no spark.

The dashboard for Cub Cadet/MTD mowers includes hour meter, Low oil, or time for oil change, PTO, and other lights. If the oil light is flashing, it means 1 of 2 things. Low Oil Level, or it is time to perform maintenance by changing Oil and Filter. After this process, the light will reset itself after a few more hours of running.

Oil change

Take the old one out and get the numbers off of it or take it with you for reference. The amount of oil is probably 3 quarts but that can be looked up on cub cadet site.

Cub Cadet LT1045 oil light is flashing at 50 hours. Changed oil at 45 hours

I am thinking that might be a notice to change the oil, which is only for notification purposes. Check your owners manual. There may be a procedure to reset the timer when you change the oil.

The mower is programmed to remind you to change the oil every 50 hours. It will continue blinking for 2 hours. It will begin blinking again at 100 hours and every 50 hours after that. There is no manual reset.
