When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

Craftsman push mower won't start


OOOh I don't recomend turning any 4 cycle engine upside down for any reason , i'll bet the starter won't even turn it over now, 1st your gonna need to replace engine oil to proper level , second your gonna need to locate valve (locker) this canbe ident by a small tube comming from it to carb , remove this cover and clean/drain oil from here and last remove spark plug tilt engine that direction and remove as much oil as you can attempt to turn engine over with key off by hand or with jumper on starter several times to get it moving again , clean plug with solvent and reinstall , also reinstall valve cmpt cover and tube , attempt to start might take several tries to get fresh fuel over to cylinder to fire or you might need to reclean plug several times

Simplicity lawn tractor problem


Check your fuel cap. If not venting properly, gas can be forced to places it shouldn't be. I also agree with carb over haul. If alot of gas in oil & alot of gas outta exhaust, lean towards carb issue.

I am removing a Kohler engine from a simplicity lawn tractor. I was told that the govenor gear inside the engine is not working because the engine just started racing (RPM's) I check teh linkage and...


While there may be a governor, I doubt that is the problem.
It is more likely just the linkage to the carburetor.
And you don't have to take the engine out to get to the carb.
Take the air cleaner off, and examine the carb butterfly.
There is a choke fast idle cam that is probably not in the correct position.

Kohler engine was running, stopped abruptly, will not turn over, has oil, acts as if engine is frozen.


It may be. They can seize with oil in them. Unhook any belts from the engine and pull the starter free from it. If it still won't turn, it's probably seized.

My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over


Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.
  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!
