When it shuts down crack the fuel cap and listen for the woosh of a vacuum on the fuel tank. If you hear this, clean the pinhole vent in the fuel cap, or replace it. Being partially plugged would cause you to be starved for fuel and could explain your issue, and why it goes away after a period of time.

Changed filter, oil, full of gas checked gas flow everything is good , when I start m lawn mower it runs , when I engage my pto and start mowing for about 5 minutes it just quits


if this is got the 27 hp kohler engine, I know exactly whats wrong with it , due to grass and engine oil building up in a short time under cylinder heads , it actually makes a tight ball of grass and stuff there !! this holds the engine heat and ruins the ign module that's just above it there , I put two on in one season ( tractor runs 6-10 hrs day 6 days a week ) I finally gave up I bought a Kawasaki 27 hp twin and installed it , now its run for two seasons and no problems
engaging the pto has nothing to do with it , it would cut off if you just drove it around for 15 minutes

I have JD 214 that I've replace coil, points spark plug,wire yet still getting no spark the mower just quit run inspection I found that the points was burnt and plastic where power attached was melted


Wow, a tractor with points. That's rare these days. I believe your tractor was made between 1975 and 1987. It's a 200 series. Does it have the 14 hp Kohler?

Not sure about your problem. On a modern day tractor with electronic ignition, I would check the safety switch system. In your case, I would check the fuse, key switch, and look at the kill wire running off the coils to see if there is worn insulation. If you have seat safety or PTO switches check them too.

I have a 214 kohler engine john deere lawn tractor, what point wires go to hot and the ground


if that is the Kohler 14 hp motor it may have the spark control untit on the motor cover. I recently ran into one like that and switched the coil out from a blown 20 hp kohler engine. I just taped up the excess wires and made sure they were not near any moving parts. The mower ran fine after that. Kohler wants about $160.00 for a spark control unit. There have been no repercussions since making the switch.

Hi Craig, when it stops check to see if it has lost spark. If so replace the ignition coil If it runs a kohler engine they are a common failure. Regards Phil.
