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.

Need help with KOHLER COMMAND 15.5 hp (model no.cv15s)

Are you sure the anti fire solinod in the bottom of the float bowl is working as this will shut the fuel off to the main jet, remove it, now switch the ignition on, the needle should retract fully into the housing, failing that there has to be some dirt in the jets, perhaps you could get the carb sonic cleaned this should help to unclog any jet orafices

Kohler Command 12.5 OHV engine on John Deere STX 38 will not start. Engine spins at a high rotation rate but will not fire. Spark is present at plug. Suspect automatic compression problem but not sure how...

Have you tried pouring a little fuel into the plug hole and try for start? If it runs for a short time, you have fuel delivery problems. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Look under the carburetor bowl for a small solenoid that commonly sticks in one position. I'm not aware of an automatic compression release on these engines. As this is a 4-stroke engine, it's possible that one of the valve clearances has closed up during use. Check this with the piston at top-dead-center on the compression stroke. Hope some of this helps!

No spark on my 14 hp kohler engine

Sometimes there is rust on the crankshaft and the magneto can not pick up the signal. Leave the sensor on the engine, try cleaning the rust off the crank damper and then run a clean rag between the sensor and crank. The gap varies but a old fashion matchbook seems to work in case the sensor is loose. Good Luck

Kohler command cv15s starter sping in the opposite direction???

It's more likely you hooked the battery up backwards. That reverses the polarity and will make the starter spin backwards.
