That sounds like your issue exatly. That would be the only thing that would let it die, re fire, then not restart again. If it was a fuel issue it would have still restarted, a spark issue it would still have started.

Why is my Kohler courage18 motor leaking oil from bottom of motor


When you over fill an engine it will make the crankshaft swim and splash in the oil that has too high a level in the crankcase. It will increase the pressure in the crankcase and then it comes out the crankshaft seals and out the crankcase breather. Hope this helps, plese post solved on fixya.com. So I get credit for a solved problem if it does.

After mowing I changed my oil last week. This week I mowed a side lot w/out any problem. Started a 2nd lot and the mower died. I noticed the motor was running hot, so I let it cool down. After cool down...


Did you try jumping it or turning the motor by hand to see if it ceased? Is it possible your battery went dead. Also if it was overheating, check to make sure you used the right oil, and that the cooling fins on the motor are not clogged with grass or other debris.

My mower will die everytime i engage the blades to mow


Check to see if one of your deck spindles isn't seized. Disengage the blades and turn each blade to see if its free. Sounds like either a spindle is seized or your electric clutch on the motor has a problem.

Simplicity zero turn electrical problems


charge the battery not hooked up to the mower let it sit overnight and try again the battery might just be died they only last a couple years put a volt meter on the battery when off then start it and watch the battery voltage should be around 14 volts running the pto clutch draws the most thats why it shuts off first the ign doesn't take any the carb needs very little

LTX1000 42" 18HP Kohler - Blowing fuse after 2-4 min mowing.


sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue
