Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have an Ariens GT18 mower with a single cylinder Kohler engine. The unit starts fine and runs well until it gets hot at which point it starts to miss and wants to stall. It also backfires when it is shut off after it is hot. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Carbon build up in the engine, run some carb cleaner through it like seafoam and you might wish to consider changing the sparkplugs

Kohler engine troubleshooting


Do you hear the fuel pump running? Is there gas coming out of the pump? Could be a bad wire connection to the fuel pump or bad ground connection.

I have a 214 kohler engine john deere lawn tractor, what point wires go to hot and the ground


if that is the Kohler 14 hp motor it may have the spark control untit on the motor cover. I recently ran into one like that and switched the coil out from a blown 20 hp kohler engine. I just taped up the excess wires and made sure they were not near any moving parts. The mower ran fine after that. Kohler wants about $160.00 for a spark control unit. There have been no repercussions since making the switch.

Runs good for an hour then engine begins to sputter


Once it starts sputtering carefully pull a spark plug wire off (it can shock you) and see what happens. It sounds to me like you have an ignition module issue that once it gets hot it is grounding out and then when it is sputtering it is because you are running on one cylinder

See if there as any difference in compression when the engine is cold verses hot. Also check ignition spark when it is hot. Unit could be vapor locking because of heat. Carb float could be suspect.
