    Thanks for the quick response. It has the Kawasaki 17hp. I opened the carb bowl drain and fuel came out several times. As for the compression, it has been running strong as of late. No noticable decrease in power. I'll check the fuel tomorrow and report back. Thanks for the suggestions!

Hows the compression ? Has it been sitting ? It could have a stuck valve .What engine do you have ?Did you try putting a little gas in carburetor ? If so did it run a few seconds ? If so its a carburetor problem ! Remove and clean carburetor .You could also have water in gas this will cause the same thing you can look in the tank and if you see a bubble in the bottom its water needs to be cleaned out and bowl of carburetor also needs too be removed and cleaned,Try these and give me results,hope this helps !

My jd 111lawn tractor wont start was mowing it just slowly it will turn over but wont start

Sounds like a fuel issue. Check and make sure your gas tank has fuel in it. Then check fuel filter to see if it is allowing fuel to the carb.

John Deere Snowblower 1032 won't start. Obvious solution?

First dump the old gas and put in fresh. Clean or replace spark plug.
Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb. If it fires the ignition system is good. Do this a few times because there is still old gas in the float bowl and fuel line. When the fresh gas gets to the carb it will stay running. If it did not fire with starting fluid the points and condensor will need to be replaced and maybe the coil.

John deere mower Won't start

Sounds like the carb is varnished up and needs to be rebuilt. They make rebuild kits depending on the carb number and you can rebuild it.

Jd X320 will not start changed fuel filte,spark plugs,and checked air filter

I assume it cranks, but won't fire up? Make sure the choke lever is moving the linkage in front of the carb. If so, tap the carb bowl lightly with a wrench. (That fixed mine once, and it never did it again) Have you had your valve lash adjusted? Be sure the carb is getting fuel. Pull the fuel line off the carb, and try to crank it... My X320 has 1,500hrs on it, and I have had great luck! Keep me posted, I want to help you get this figured out!

Jonh deere ryding lawn mower won't start

try making sure your getting gas to the carb,and to the spark plug if you can choke it and try to start it but fails check the spark plug if its wet with gas then the plug is not firing or your ignition coil is dead also check for debri or foreign matter in the gas lines and filters but if it has set for awhile most of the time the jet become clogged in the carb but most importantly make sure the gas is good and free water dead gas can cause a problem of that nature.hope this helps.

My john deere L130 riding lawn tractor has spark and gas going to the carb but wont start. it has new spark plug and fuel filter When starting fluid is sprayed into carb it runs till its burnt up and...

I had a JD 111 rider that may have had the same problem. Turned out to be the fuel line had a weak area and would **** together and not allow the fuel through. It's a cheep place to start.

Good luck!!
