Customer Question

Lx255 won't start. When turning over the engine smoke came out from where the steering column is. Was not oil smoke. Smelled more like electrical. Changed the coil with no change.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! This is Kohler single cylinder engine? The mower has ignition module behind the dash, with two fuses in it. Do you see any burned spots on the circuit board, and are the two fuses good? Does it have the two led lights? Of it does are, they both lit? Do you have spark to the plug, if you remove the spark plug and ground it? It not remove the kill wire to the coil, and check again. Sounds like the ignition system is shorting out the spark.
