SOURCE: Z force 48 in. cub Cadet mower starts but dies

Check the wires to the seat switch. Under the seat you should find 2 wires connected to the seat. Unplug them, and use a jumper on the end that goes into the body of the mower. Try it again, and if it works, replace your seat.

SOURCE: what do I do if my cub cadet 1862 has no spark?

Try replacing the spark plug first, if still no spark, sounds like the ignition coil is going/bad.

Have a Cub Cadet Lt 1050 when you start it, continues to turn over and not start.

Check your oil. Most cub cadets use a kohler engine which will allow gasoline to drain into the crankcase and fill it with gas. The fuel must be shut off on kohlers which can cause unwanted flooding due to a stuck float. You may be surprised when you open the oil check and find gasoline coming out. If not, lightly sand the magneto and the flywheel to make sure you have a spark. If you do have a spark, it is most likely a gasoline issue caused by the flow being stuck in the bowl of the carburetor, causing a Kohler not to start

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.
