Question about Garden

1 Answer

Small engines my lawn tractor with a 12 HP Kohler engine just started to stall out after about 20 minutes of running. I changed the fuel pump, filter, checked lines etc. Now it will not run unless the choke is on full. If you try to reduce the choke even a bit it stalls out.

Sitting aout 7 yrs , will run with starter fluid and gas in carb until used then stops


Hi Gene, Seems like you need to pull your carby off and unscrew the bottom half from the top, 1st sign of a needle stuck inside the seat is a dry carby There you'll find the float, push the float up and down and see if the needle above the float slides up and down from the seat, If the needle stays up then it's stuck and NOT letting the fuel into the carby, Just pull it down with your fingers to loosen it up..I hope this helps.... CHEERS..

Describe your 20 Hp 42"


The float an needle are stuck open causing the fuel to drain from the tank or be pumped by the fuel pump into the carburetor bowl, filling it and flooding the engine and filling up the air cleaner. You may even find that it has gone into the crank case sump contaminating the oil. Do not run until you have repaired the carburetor and changed the oil and if air filter got contaminated, that changed too.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Craftmen tractor w/ Kohler engine stalls out continually


Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.

My Sears Craftsman Garden Tractor 22HP, dies after it gets hot


Sue your brother is right! I had the same problem and it turned out to be the gas cap. the small breather hole on the top was plugged with dirt. once I cleaned it out I took the rubber gasket out from the bottom of the cap and cleaned that as well. runs great now.

Craftsman garden tractor stalls after running for about 20 minute


do you have the right fuel filter? some are for pressure and some are for gravity feed, the pressure type (fuel pump) wont flow the gas correctly. another possibility would be the coil.

YS 4500 Stalls out after running for 20 mins


I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.
