JD GT262 Kawasaki 17 HP

Doug Howdy

My GT262 died the the other day in the middle of doing a cut. I tried to restart it but got nothing, but what sounded like a backfire thru the carb.

I let it sit for a bit. Now it just cranks, and does not start, nor does it try.

I checked the fuel system and it looks ok. I pulled the plug and the plug was "wet". However, I noticed when I cranked the motor with the plug out I got no spark. I assume that is the problem.

Is there one part to replace to fix this problem?

My machine has been solid until this.

Darin Doug, I am having the same issue with my Kawasaki 20 HP on my 345. I took it to the shop and they replaced the ignition cicuit board on the right side of the tractor. I took it home, mowed and it worked fine. The next day I went to start and nothing. I poppped the cover and starting moving wires around and then it cranked right up. I'm thinking I have a short, maybe a chaffed wire in one of the bundles. You might want to give that a try. Good luck.
Doug Hi Darin,

Turns out it was the ignition. I think it is called an igniter module(Part number was AM131398). It is on the right side of the engine. The person at the dealer told me they are having problems with that part and he said if I get a flakey one to return it.

I replaced mine today and it is running solid. (Part cost me 49 bucks). Ran it for a couple of hours no problem.
