916H won't idle

Recommended Posts

My DA 916H w/ Kohler K341 won't idle. Started idling rough a couple weeks ago but will not idle at all now. Reset low and high speed fuel mixtures per the book and adjusted high speed but cannot adjust low as it won't run at less than about 1/3 throttle. Runs fine at 1/3-full throttle. What should I look at next. The book says problem with ignition system under troubleshooting but not specific. Coil?, Plug?, Points?, Condenser? Likely cause? Thanks, Brent

As with any ignition problem, check & test EACH component & connection. Or, take a guess and replace. But, sounds like you could have a fuel problem (gasket leak, float, jets, water, dirt, etc.).
