I have a 2012 Cub Cadet lt1046. I’ve had three CC and they get the job done, I know how to work on them, and they are inexpensive. I’ve had a problem with the lt1046. If I turn it off during a mowing, it is often impossible to restart. I have to let it sit for a while. I guess I’m flooding it. The dealer tech just said “ yeah, they run rich.” Is there anything I can do/ adjust to help this situation? Thank you!

Well, a number of things come to mind. What is the primary fuel, ethanol or non-ethanol? Have you removed the carb and either a good soak in an ultrasonic cleaner or a thorough cleaning with spray? Gaskets inside the carb don't last forever, when were they changed last? What about the backfire solenoid, does it work?
