Take spark plug out ,put sparkplug wire on plug and let it lay against block. Watch to see if plug fires. If not change coil. Hope this helps.

Sounds like its not getting enough fuel. clean the fuel system and the carby. The valve clearances also need to be checked.

SOURCE: Craftsman tractor lt2000 with 17hp Kohler won't start. Ran fine last week. Rebuilt carb, changed oil, and new plug & fuel filter month ago. Has spark and fuel. Cranks but won't fire.

Hi Mike:
It's trying to make you crazy.
I have a model YT4000 and it is a PITA to start when cold.
I pull the air filter, toss in a bit of gas to prime it, and it starts instantly.

I'd suggest that you give yours another try. 3 or 4 times of a couple of seconds each. If it doesn't go, pull a spark plug and see if it is wet or dry. Wet indicates getting gas but no spark. Dry indicates not getting gas.
While you have the plug out, check the spark... Hot & blue.
Hope this gives you some more to work with.

Huskee madel 13af673h131, won't crank


I guess you were sitting on the seat while trying to start the unit, so Try to apply power direct to the starter, if it turns over buy a solinoid. If it doesn't the starter may be bad. To check the engine: take out the spark plugs and try to turn over the engine from underneath by hand, using the pulley. This will tell if the engine is siezed up

Craftsman lt2000 17hp kohler Has12volts to solenoid and only clicks and doesnt crank. Jumped to starter red cable and starts.


The battery is weak or needs a charge. Have it load tested at a parts store. It needs about 14 volts to start.

Kohler 149 cc engine won't start seems to be getting no fuel


This may not fix your problem but it does deal with that engine. I just tried to replace the spark plug in that engine and it took me 5 hours. The Kohler plug in the engine that came from the factory cannot be found in traditional stores and it is a strange size, 11/16 or 12 mm. The Kohler plug is #1413211. I could not find a match in a book. Divine intervention lead me to a place where they were fixing the Kohler 149cc engine that had the same plug in it that mines did. I discovered that a Champion 8815 does fit the engine but it takes a 18mm socket. It did fix the problem and the mower works. Hopefully this will save someone my hassles.

Make sure your electronic ignition (modular, coil, or whatever you want to call it) is not the problem. Check this by replacing old plug with new (I'm sure you already did this), but before putting the new plug in connect it at the top to the ele ign wire, then lay it on the machine or any piece of metal, (screw driver will do) then try to start the engine. Watch to see if you have fire between the spark plug and the metal. If not it is the ele ign that isn't any good and must be replaced.
