Sounds like a governor adjustment. there is a spring from the throttle actuator arm which slots to the governor actuator arm. Try different positions.

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!

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.

RPM fluxuates/pulsates


It sounds like a piece of dirt is in carburetor.You could try the quick clean first,remove the flywheel screen and the plastic engine shroud.The top of the carburetor will be exposed now.Remove the 3 small screws from the plat on top of the carb.Use air or carburetor cleaned and blow out these passages. Be sure to cover with a rag when doing this to shield your face from spray back.Test run and see if that helps,if not you will have to remove the carburetor and disassemble it to clean it.
