If this engine is only runs on the choke and stops when its open sounds like a fuel problem !

make sure the carb solenoid is getting 12 volt to open up the main jet

check that the fuel cap is venting ?

check the fuel filter ?

check the fuel pump is causing flow when being cranked
if it has one

check the carby jets and emulsion tubes and air bleeds are clear and needle and seat aure not stuck closed ?

check the valves are opening and closing and they have correct clearance

have a look let me know engine model and spec number

cheers paul

Kohler ch13s will not start{backfires]. But some times after many trys it will start and run find

I had this puzzler too! Turned out the problem is caused by the fuel-bowl needle valve. It may look OK but looks are deceiving. It gets a coating on the tip that causes a poor seal ... poor enough to allow fuel to flood the engine after a short run time. The flooded engine dies, but restarts OK after a delay that clears (cooks off) the excess fuel that flooded/killed the engine. SOLUTION: Remove the needle valve and carefully wipe and clean the tip with a white cloth soaked in solvent (gas is OK). The cloth will show the deposits that cause the problem. Carefully re-install the needle valve and float parts, start the engine, confirm that it runs OK and continuously. Simple fix .... puzzling problem.

What is causing my 12hp kohler engine to backfire and quit running when given any throttle?

That sounds like either bad (old) gasoline or the carburetor needs cleaning very badly - it's running very lean.

My Kohler Command 20 HP running fine, shut down, won't restart. How should I troubleshoot this problem?

check for fuel try starting fluid if it fires on that then you have spark if it does not then you have a spark problem and seeing the command engine has two coils check the safety switches on the mower side

Kohler 149 cc engine won't start seems to be getting no fuel

This may not fix your problem but it does deal with that engine. I just tried to replace the spark plug in that engine and it took me 5 hours. The Kohler plug in the engine that came from the factory cannot be found in traditional stores and it is a strange size, 11/16 or 12 mm. The Kohler plug is #1413211. I could not find a match in a book. Divine intervention lead me to a place where they were fixing the Kohler 149cc engine that had the same plug in it that mines did. I discovered that a Champion 8815 does fit the engine but it takes a 18mm socket. It did fix the problem and the mower works. Hopefully this will save someone my hassles.
