Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor - 54in. Deck, 26 HP, Model# LGT2654

1 Answer

My LGT 2554 Husgvarna mower engine tends to die when the mower blades are engaged. When the engine runs with the blades off at low idle it is ok. When you advance the throttle fast to full it loses power temporarily then catches up. I checked and cleaned plugs, removed air filter so no obstruction and cleaned fuel filter. The only thing left if the electronic carborator device. How do I check it?

A common problem on the 21 & 23HP models is bent valve push rods on one cylinder. With this the engine runs and seems fine, albeit a bit quieter, until you put a load on it like engaging the blades which causes it to nearly die. So you may want to eliminate this as a possibility by running the engine with one plug wire removed and then the other. If it runs with one wire on alone, but not with the other wire on alone, then you have a nonworking cylinder even though it is receiving spark. Just a thought.

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Husqvarna LGT 2554, run out of gas, blades were engaged. Put gas in it and now it will not turn over. Jumped battery, would not turn over / click. New battery.


Sounds like you still have PTO switch in the on position which would prevent the starter circuit from working.

Engine only runs at low idle and smokes


Hi,
So now, without the blades engaged, it smokes and then dies?
In your first description it sounded like the engine was under a strain. Overfilling with oil could produce a strain, but since it ran ok until you said you engaged the blades, I would have to ask if the blades themselves, were causing the strain. Sometimes if you cut wet grass, the clippings stick to your underside of the deck and can really build up. Also some rope, wire or twine would around the spindles could creat one. Check this out...
Now, with the "smoke" issue (I'm assuming a blue smoke from burning oil) I'm inclined to think your rings aren't compressing any longer and you're burning oil. You might be in for a rebuild... I hope not.
