John Deer L110 with Kohler 17.5hp backfires wont start

Hi I have a John Deer L110 with Kohler command 17.5hp engine. Fault is it wont start but backfires and stalls the starter mower as though its firing against the compression - I see others have had the same problem - is it timing?

Ther is an anti back fire solenoid in the front of the carb that you need to check or replace,if the wireing to it checks ok[12volts in the run position].If this is not the case then then the valves need to be adjusted so that the decompresser works normally.

Why is my John Deere L110 17 1/2 firing but not starting. It pops like a gun shot


this could be a engine timing problem this model should have a 17.5 hp kohler engine , now kohler's are now famous for having coil problems cus of overheating it and the other cause could be if you reciently shocked this engine hard (Heavy load) sometimes the flywheel pully (iron thing on top) comes loose or you shear the keyway on shaft anyways ck out my youtube video on easy way to change kohler coil for help doing this (all you need is 6 mm wrench , two hands and a playing card)

John deer L110 17 1/2 Kohler engine fires but doesn't start, it just pops like a gun shot


given the info available , it sounds like either a hole in the piston or a burnt/stuck valve. the popping sound could be a backfire, from improper detonation of fuel ,a simple compression test will tell if this is in fact the problem.

Kohler 17.5 command. will not start


The woodruff / flywheel key is likely partially sheared. Pull off the air housing, remove the starting clutch, to get to where you can see the flywheel key. I bet you will find that the key has distorted. Easily replaced once flywheel is pulled. Make sure to use the correct key when replacing it.
