Sounds like the fuel shutoff solenoid. cost around $!50 for the part.
Whats happening is when you turn it over the solenoid is holding the pin and when you let go of the key the solenoid is releasing the pin and shutting off the fuel.

Hope this helps

connected the pipes to the pump incorrectly

they are only good for a pressure of 30psi not 2000psi

I have a Lincoln vantage 300 diesel welding machine with kubota engine when I go to start it will start then shut right off but if you hold in start button it will run Need Help

check the operation of the start switch as the circuit to keep it running ( stop solenoid circuit) is not operational
could be a fuse in that circuit or a broken/ missing wire

Tractor will start and run, but only if you're holding the key like you're starting it. If you let go the tractor dies???? 2006 Kubota L2800 Hydrostatic 4x4

look for a wire/switch problem from the run side of the starter switch to the ignition control module
what you have is this
when it is in start the power is to the starter as well as to the ignition module
when the engine stats and you let go of the switch, power to the starter is cut but a new circuit to the ignition module is engaged to give power for ignition
by letting go of the switch ,the circuit for power to the ignition module is broken
find that break in the circuit ( wire or ignition switch) and the problem will be solved

Kubota tractor got of seat and now won't start

Most seats contain a safety switch.
go online (like I just did) and type in "Kubota tractor seat safety switch" then scroll through the pics to see where the safety switch is. This switch is to prevent one from getting off the tractor while it is operating. DO NOT REMOVE IT. It will only put you and someone who doesn't know it is gone to have an accident maybe a serious one.

I have a kubota lawn tractor G2160. when the engine is running and i turn off the key, the engine keeps running with the key off!!!

The problem is most likely the ignition switch. When it is turned off, it grounds the magneto to stop the engine. Also, make sure the wire (probably black) from the magneto has not come unplugged or broken. It should go all the way to the switch.

Acquired a Kubota BX2200 with house. How do I start it?

What??? I have a BX2200, there is no choke or clutch??? The deck can be in any position????
1. Make sure it is on Neutral.
2. Make sure the PTO is disengaged.
3. Turn the key until the orange (glow plug) light comes on and count to five, then start.
Is is turning over and not starting, or doing nothing.
Send me a PM.
