    Angry kohler efi motor wouldnt start.

    hi my name is Russ, I am new to this forum. I own a 60" exmark laser and a 48"exmark laser. the laser has a kohler efi engine, and the metro has a Kawasaki 15hp. my kohler was giving my problems. it would start when its cold with no problems, but after I used it and shut it down, it would not start up. but when you let it sit for an hour it would start right up. it turned out that it was my pto swithch was going bad. the pto was sending signal it was still engaged (on) when in fact it off (pushed down). when it wouldn't start, I would turn the key and the starter would make a sound like it wanted to start but wouldn't. naturally I got a new starter ($240.00), put it in but did it the same thing. but after I put a new starter in and it didn't start I was ticted off. while sitting on the mower baffled I stumbled on a way to start it.
    I pulled up on pto and turned the key on at the same time and it started every time. I put a new pto in and solved the problem.
