Yoy can try tightening the blade bolt. i know it sounds funny but if the blade bolt is loose (or even alittle loose) the blade balance throws off the engine balance and can cause it to
1 not start
2 make loud clunking noises when trying to start
3 make a real racket if it does start

try flipping the lawn mower over and just tighten the bolt that holds the blade in place.
That should fix your problem.

Check for foreign objects caught under the deck, as well as for a bent blade. If that's not the problem, look at the mower deck belt - is it burnt or worn in a spot? Take it off, and see if you can turn the blade spindles and idler pulley freely. If they scrape badly or are frozen in place, that's the problem.

14sb engine running when blade clutch is engaged the lawnmower stalls.


Normally I believe this mower to have a Kawasaki engine, and the main jet and 'pilot air hole' need to be cleaned. You are running a lean condition, and when the blade is engaged, the engine does not have enough fuel to continue the extra load. A small test for this is to engage the blade and the choke at the same time. If the engine has enough fuel to continue running and engage the blade, this confirms the lean fuel condition. Cleaning those jets will solve the issue.

if you mean that when you let off the clutch pedal and/or engage the blades, the engine dies, lift the seat and make sure the connector is firmly plugged into the switch attached to the seat.

Craftsman riding mower noise when blades engaged


With blades on and engine off reach under and wiggle each blade up and down. If you have excess play you will need bearings.

Lawn mower has a loud noise like something is hitting on metal part.changed blade this year with no problems. loud excessive vibration when running.


Sounds like your deck may be bent in and the blade is hitting. Remove the sparkplug and tilt the mower back on the handle (I'm assuming this is a push mower) and have someone pull the rope while you watch the blade underneath. You should see the problem.

Loud screech noise from deck area


This can be due to a belt slipping or a bad spindle bearing.
And on the difficulty scale,10 being extremely difficult, The belt would be a 1 or 2 and the spindle about 6 or 7 (because the deck usually needs removed for this job)
