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

    Received your email. A manual would help you find the sensor. You may be able to find your engine online or at a Library. If the sensor is not down at the output shaft, then it would have to be under the pullcord cover. Since you have electric start, you should only have a shield cover. Once you find the sensor you know to clean the rust off of the part it is mounted over.

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.

My Kohler Command 20 HP running fine, shut down, won't restart. How should I troubleshoot this problem?


check for fuel try starting fluid if it fires on that then you have spark if it does not then you have a spark problem and seeing the command engine has two coils check the safety switches on the mower side

My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over


Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.
  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

The engine is cranking want start


check for fuel .? spray staring fluid into throtle body then crank if engine runs then stalls you have fuel related problem ( fuel pump) if no start you have ignition problem ( coil or distributor check for spark use a screw driver insert into spark plug wire at spark plug end hold about 1/4 away from gronded engine and crank engine see if spark jumps gap if no spark could be coil or crank sensor
