Take top off.Look to see if magneto has rust on the coil.if so,get a steel brush,and clean mag,coil.That could be it.Also check to see if you broke the key on the crank.

1) check plug for being carbon fouled or fuel fouled. Even though it fires, it may not be firing correctly
2) make sure you have compression 75-100 psi. since the compression release so you can pull the rope works off of the exhaust valve, you may not get anymore than that.
3) Is there water or debris in the float bowl

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your local lawn & garden dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

SOURCE: nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

Sounds like its not getting enough fuel. clean the fuel system and the carby. The valve clearances also need to be checked.

there are 3 safety switches,clutch,deck and seat, Craftsman 247288810 Lawn Tractor Parts
take the cover off so u can access the coil,unhook the black wire from the coil,not spark plug cable,try to start it,if it starts then a safety switch is bad,if it doesnt,then jump the solenoid,if it starts then it is the seat or clutch switch,if you want to bypass safety switches,connect a switch to the ground and coil

Mine takes a three quarter socket and disconnect the spark plug wire take the old one out and install a new one. Putting the wire back on after putting in the plug.To do it right check the spark plug gap but usually it is factory set anyway.
