Question and Answers

Q:

ON THE KOHLER 15 HP CV15S ITS SEEMS ITS HOLDING A LOT OF PRESSURE ,BECAUSE I CAN TURN THE FLYWHEEL WITH A RATCHET AND ITS TIGHT TO THE TURN.

A:

When the engine is rotated to the compression stroke before the ignition module fires the plug it will create 90 psi inside the cylinder. It is normal for the flywheel to be hard to turn.

When the piston passes the compression stroke the flywheel should get much easier to turn until it starts the compression stroke again.

Q:

riding mower starts but cuts out and stops

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry to hear you are having problems with the tractor. By what you stated it sound as if you have a fuel problem with the tractor. I recommend moving the tractor to a well ventilated area and let it cool. If the fuel tank is in the front of the tractor remove the fuel line from the carburetor and place it into an approved container. Then monitor the fuel flow. You should see a steady flow of fuel. If it slows down I recommend removing the fuel cap. If the flow picks up the vent in the cap is plugged. If the flow does not pick up I recommend replacing the fuel filter.

If the flow never slows, I suspect the inlet in the carburetor is plugged. To cure this the carburetor will need to be cleaned or replaced. If you need assistance doing that, please let me know. I will be happy to give you the instructions.

If this is not the problem, please reply below with more details and a model number of the tractor. Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

I HAVE A KOHLER 15 HP CV15S CANT GET IT TO START. PUT A NEW STARTER ,NEW SYLINOID, AND NEW BATTERY. TRYING TO START IT DOESNT WANT TO SPIN THE FLY WHEEL .

A:

Without a model number, I cannot look up a wiring diagram. If the mower does not make any kind of sound when you try to start the mower, I would suspect an electrical problem. Make sure the mowing deck is turned off. The engine will not attempt to start if the deck is on. The mower should have a fuse in the harness. Check the fuse to ensure it is not blown and replace it if needed.

The solenoid should have two small wires connected to it. When the key is turned to the start, position there should be 12 volts d.c. on those two wires. If you have 12 volts and you do not hear a noise, I recommend replacing the solenoid. If you do not have 12 volts, the problem is most likely the safety switches.

If you need further assistance, please submit more details and a model number.
