Hello beadingblond:

>>Check the Valve Clearances. If the Valve Clearances are Not Correct the Compression Release Does Not Operate as Designed and the Starter will seem to be Dragging.
>>Also, Is the Crankcase Oil Overfilled and Contaminated with Gas?

My craftsman riding lawnmower will not start unless jumpstarted off the starter and while mowing the blades will stop turning even on the two highest setting for the deck and the grass isn' t that high?


Sounds like your starter is bad and that could be causing your blades not to work if you have a cvt type clutch. If you don't i would check your belt it may be stretched out.

Hi government32, seeing how you just installed a new battery I'll assume you cleaned all the connections. Not cranking at all sounds like 3 possibilities, Key switch, starter solenoid, or starter. Lets check starter first. Using a jumper cable, jump from positive battery post to starter motor (you'll see the connection on the motor where cable is connected,thats where you hook jumper), if it cranks the starter motor is ok. If it doesn't thats the problem. If it does crank check the starter solenoid, using a jumper cable jump across from side to side (the 2 big terminals). If it cranks now the solenoid is bad or the electrical connections are dirty. There are also 1 or 2 small connections on solenoid from the key switch, make sure they are clean. If these 2 components check out the key switch is bad or the connections on it are dirty. (its usually not the switch).Hope this helps you.

battery has a low charge or the starting gear on the starter is bad. just remove cover and see if the starter ingages and cranks the fly wheel. look at the gear itself to make sure the teeth are good ,if not replace the plastic gear. takes 5 min.

Have the battery tested at an auto parts store to ensure there is enough power in it. Sounds like it's strong enough to turn the motor with no compression (spark plug removed) but too weak to turn the motor with compression. Also check for loose or corroded wires.
