DYT4000 Won't Start

Tim Hagan Hey there, I have a Craftsman/Kohler DYT4000 Lawn Tractor and I am having a problem with it starting.

I recently attempted to cut a bunch of high grass through a semi-muddy area and got stuck 3 times. On the third time, it backfired and quit. It now will not stop even after 24 hours of sitting on a level garage floor. HELP! What's the best way to trouble shoot this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Tim

Bill Tim, Mine quit the other day and would not start. Here is what I had to do. See my string of questions under "Bill".

Excerpt

Hooray!! Found the problem. After having the same problem on 2 identical mowers the problem has been solved. I had Sears repair come out and he knew instantly what the problem was. Bottom line: Manufacturers defect in the solid state ignition switch. Recently a Sears Repair Flash notice came out describing the problem. When you turn off the switch that the key is not "turned off" all the way or correctly. So, there is a kit that the repair man carried around. which is "9amp Regulated Engine Repair Kit No. 192931". This supposedly fixes the problem and once installed (30 minutes) it started right up. Thanks for everyone who tried to figure help me figure it out!

DG Thankfully, I found this post. My 1 year old DYT4000 encountered same problem. Sears sent out repair service & the guy fixed it in 15 minutes.. no charge under warranty. My lights also did not work & the repairman said it was a related problem.. the bulbs burn out due to the faulty ignition switch. Unfortunately, the "fix" does not replace the Ignition module.. so, the bulbs might still burn out if replaced.
Richard My Craftsman DYT4000 is less than a year old and it also just quit and will not start. I suspect that the problem is electrical and most probably in the switch. I am also thankful that I came across this post, and now I know where to turn and have some ammo for arguement.

Terry Anyone know where to purchase the 9amp Regulated Engine Repair Kit No. 192931
JohnR Oct 2007: I called Sears parts, asked for that part number, they had the same description, and I ordered it.

No idea if this will solve my problem, but it sounds similar and I've tried everything else.

Ruben Hernandez My riding lawn mower,The engine turns but won't start.
Max I have the same problem. My DYT 4000 won't start. I turns but doesn't sound like it wants to try to start. Is this a fuel pump or filter problem or is it the ignition switch problem everyone is having?
