You're pretty close when it's backfiring. However, since there's no timing, the problem could be that you need a new spark plug. Also, a valve could be sticking. A little STP in the gas would help that.
Also, found a tip on www.doityourself.com forum: http://www.doityourself.com/forum/outdoor-gasoline-power-equipment-small-engines/280686-craftsman-riding-mower-starting-problems.html
One of the guys found he had a loose wire on the anti-backfire solenoid.
If the repair shop said it just needed a tuneup, I suspect the spark plug, clean filter, or maybe a clogged fuel line would be your problem.
I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
