Help With Troybilt Ride On Lawn Tractor

The tractor won't start with any consistency...turn key, flywheel begins to spin and then seems to get stuck...wont move...I can turn the flywheel with some effort...sometimes this helps...usually doesn't...has gas, battery is charged with good connections...don't see any grass obstructing blades either....I think it's a fuel system issue though...any suggestions???? Oh yeah...seemed to happen more in the past when it was damp outside...now, it seems to do it always!

    "don't see any grass obstructing blades either"



    Is this unit supposed to start with the blades engaged? Usually there is a switch which disables the ignition switch when the blades are engaged?

Check your crank case for fuel,

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

Cub Cadet SRC 621, won't start. New spark plug, cleaned carburetor and air filter, Whiffs of smoke occasionally


Sounds like a sheer flywheel key. Common on the SRC 621. Kawasaki motor, correct. The flywheel key is under the recoil. Pull the flywheel and check the key. A very small key is there. Breaks and puts the engine out of time

Starter motor spins, but does not engage
  1. Check the starter motor for a seized or binding pinion gear.
  2. Remove the flywheel inspection plate and check for a damaged ring gear.
  3. Engine stalls immediately when started
    1. Check the ignition switch condition and operation. The electrical contacts in the run position may be worn or damaged. Try restarting the engine with all electrical accessories in the off position. Sometimes turning the key on an off will help in emergency situations, however once the switch has shown signs of failure, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
    2. Check for loose, corroded, damaged or shorted wires for the ignition system and repair or replace.
    3. Check for manifold vacuum leaks or vacuum hose leakage and repair or replace parts as necessary.
    4. Measure the fuel pump delivery volume and pressure. Low fuel pump pressure can also be noticed as a lack of power when accelerating. Make sure the fuel pump lines are not restricted. The fuel pump output is not adjustable and requires fuel pump replacement to repair.
    5. Check the engine fuel and ignition management system. Inspect the sensor wiring and electrical connectors. A dirty, loose or damaged sensor or control module wire can simulate a failed component.
    6. Check the exhaust system for internal restrictions.

Ift.ts very possible you key is stripped on the crank shaft. Raise the hood and pull the air shroud which will expose the fly wheel, Remove the large nut holding the fly wheel and check for the shesred key. If it is sheared install anew one even if it has aneck in it.

I cant shut off my lawn tractor with the key


Hi,
I actually had the same problem with my tractor and it turned out to be that I had to run a second ground wire (ground to a separate point) that forces the coil to ground). My suggestion is to remove the flywheel cover and attach a wire (at a different point) to the coil and then start the tractor and when you go to shut it off. Turn the key and then just find a metal point on the tractor to touch the wire to and hopefully the tractor will shut off.
Good luck!
