First: check the battery because if it was dead then it might not be any good... Then after replacing said battery, hook a volt meter up to your battery and it should read over 13.2 and might even climb up to 14+. Anything over 15.5 or so will cook your battery. Your engine died because the safety solenoid in the bottom of the carb lost voltage... but I am only supplying what I would do in this situation by using your description.

SOURCE: 2 year old craftsman 42

if it restarts immediately, check the vent in the gas cap for restriction. also, the solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor may be sticking or getting weak. if you have to let it sit for awhile before it retarts, the ignition module may be breaking down when it heats up. i'd bet on the gas cap or solenoid though

SOURCE: My simplicity Coronet Hydro 13 lawn tractor loses

The fluid in the transmission is a multigrade oil. sometimes you can change the oil by removing the transmission partially or entirely and change the oil to a heavier grade like 15W40 or 20W50, the transmission has a vent mechanism on top that is where the oil would be extracted or drained from and then refilled, the level at full cold is 1" to 1 1/4" below the bottom edge of the inside of the vent pipe or plug boss. some of these had a flat vent plug, some have a hose with the vent in the end attached at a nipple and still some older units had a reservoir like on the larger tractors. The reason your trans is slowing is due to wear in the hydraulic pump face.

Tractor runs, but cuts off if you try to engage the blades (and not in the usual hesitant way it did normally if the engine speed was not high enough at first start)


Had same problem on my 115 automatic. Tried lots of things but the fix was replacing the coil making sure for proper spacing. Documents with new coil will tell you and should have a card with proper spacing. Instant power, instant fix! Good luck!

Why won't my Ariens 46 in 20 hp BS eng. turn over when key is turned to start?


It could be several things. First see if the safety switches work One switch should be under the seat. The second could be a bad solenoid which will not allow the current to go through the wire. Thirdly the battery connector could have a break in it. Electrical problems can be tricky to track down.
