    I had the same problem with my Kohlar 22 hp motor. If I run a wire from the + post on my battery to the fuel shut-off solenoid on the bottom of the carburator, it starts and runs fine, therefore a wiring problem. Haven't figured out where yet or a solution.

SOURCE: My Kohler Confidant IV generator starts and runs

Kohler generators feed the generated voltage back into the control circuit board to tell it to keep the fuel pump (electric) runing and the ignition on. IF there is no voltage generated (bad brushes or?) then the symptom you describe will occur. The motor runs fine, but it isn't generating electricity.

SOURCE: 20 hp kohler leaking gas out front right side of motor

Check all your fuel hoses make sure they are not broken or any holes are in the lines themselves. Also clean out the Carb and all the ports leading to the engine with some carb cleaner. If you still have raw fuel leaking then you are going to have to replace the top gasket on the motor where your cylinders are located.

What to do? I have a craftsman GT 5000 with a 25 HP Kohler and it will run for about 10 minutes and then start cutting out and die. I have changed the fuel filter with no resolve. What should I look at...


Make sure the choke is coming off. Check the compression.Many times the head gasket may leak when the engine heats up. Also check for spark sometimes the magneto can heat up and quit after running a while. See if it will run if you prime with a little fuel, if so ,some of the Kohler engines this size have a fuel pump that could be failing. Check for vapor lock. It takes air and fuel properly mixed, spark and compression any of these missing the engine dies.

Cub cadet runs fine until I start the PTO, then it stutters and dies. If I shut off the PTO blade, it will pick back up and run again


I had a similar problem with my cub Cadet. It turned out that the Ignition Module on the engine was cracked. Motor started OK - but died as soon as a load (such as engaging the mower) was put on it.

These are not terribly hard to check, and/or change, yourself. Easy to get to once the motor shroud is removed.

My 25 HP Kohler engine has 2 modules. EXPENSIVE from the dealer - found MUCH better prices online.

Similar issue - buddies CubCadet with Kohler Courage 22 would not stay running. Turned out the coils got rusty where it interacts with flywheel. cleaned the contacts (be careful to shim for proper spacing) and ran like a top.

2 mowers 19.5 hp and 27hp kohler, both die when you let off brake


Sure sounds like an elusive safety switch to me. There's usually one on the seat, the blade control, and the brake.
