Sudden stops are usually due to ignition failure unless the blade hit some obstruction which can cause the flywheel key to shear off and shift timing into no-run condition. With a sheared key, you can still get sparks, but they occur at the wrong time. Check for good spark at the plug and if ok, pour a small amount of fuel or starting fluid into the plug hole and try for start. It should pop several times. If nothing, remove the upper cover and check the keyway area--if the flywheel side and the crankshaft side don't line up, replace the sheared key. Hope this helps!

Just received my model 247.290001 mower was mowing when engine dies and will not turn over now


Did it stop suddenly? Or splutter and cough like an engine problem? If suddenly I'd suggest checking the seat switch wire hasn't become disconnected, if this doesn't solve it then check all the other safety switches.

Why won't my 22 in. Kohler Low Wheel Variable Speed Self-Propelled Gas Lawn Mower self propel anymore?


i would guess that the belt is'nt tight enough when engaged. when you press the drive bar on the handle it should make the belt really tight if not it will need replaced. sometimes the gears in the wheels will mess up. there are videos on you tube that describe that and also the belt.

Suddenly cut out whilst mowing the lawn. now wont start, pull cord stiff to pull


Something just like this happened earlier this year with my pressure washer. This is what I did to fix it and now it runs great. Check the oil. If it's black or feels the least bit tacky, drain a pint or two of the oil out and re-add that amount of Marvel Mystery Oil. Now, attempt to pull the cord all the way out, but slowly at first. It should get easier to pull after about 5 pulls. If the mower restarts, let it run for 10 minutes until the Mystery Oil is hot and has cycled around inside the engine. Then drain that oil and refill it with a quality brand of oil. To top it off, either clean or replace the air filter, and put a shotglass of Lucas gas & injector cleaner into the mower's full gas tank. I also do this to my lawnmower and weedeater. It works wonders. BTW...If you're unable to turn the engine over by pulling the cord, remove the spark plug and tilt the mower up, so you can turn the blade easily by hand (use gloves). BUT FIRST MAKE SURE THAT SPARK PLUG IS REMOVED. REMEMBER... SAFETY FIRST! Let us know if this helped you any.

Riding mower no longer moves.


If this is a hydrostatic transmission, one of 3 things:
1. Drive belt off pulleys (recommend replace belt if so)
2. Belt broken (obviously, replace)
3. Hydrostatic transmission failed (least likely, but this is an expensive repair shop issue if so)


This happened to my GT1554 two weeks ago - fortunately, replacing the belt resolve the problem.
