SOURCE: snapper rear engine riding mower clutch

It is time to replace the driven wheel. When you flip the mower up on the back end (after closing the vent on the top of the fuel cap), the driven wheel is the disc that has rubber on the outer edge that rides on the silvery disc that comes off the end of the motor. The last time I bought one was about 7 years ago, at which time it cost me about $7.85. I would expect it to be around $11-12 these days.

Sounds like you have problems inside your gear box, The easiest way to check this is to stand the mower up on it's backend and try to turn one wheel and hold the other. You should be able to do this if you get any bucking or the rear end locking up your problem is going to be in the gearbox. FYI make sure you lock your clutch pedal down so the drive disk does not contact the friction disc

SOURCE: Snapper rear engine riding mower won't turn over.

First take off the engine shroud and clean the magnets on the fly wheel. Also the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. I use fine sand paper or emery cloth.
Second take the sediment bowl off of the carb and use carb and choke cleaner to clean out any varnish that has formed. If the bolt that holds the bowl on has a little weep hole clean it also. You can spray entire carb and any little ports in it and use an old tooth brush to give it a good cleaning. Reinstall the bowl and then try starting it.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
thanks roundo4

Why does snapper rideing lawn mower stall when brake is relased?

Hi Jerry:
These machines have a lot of safety switches intended to protect the operator.
If no-one is sitting on the seat (activating that switch), releasing the brake will shut the engine off.
That's the first thing I'd be checking.
Hope this helps.

Grease plug locatiom snapper rider

if it's a rear engine rider with a 28 or 30 inch deck the grease fitting is underneath the deck... If it is a rear engine rider, close the fuel off and stand the mower on end but for a short period of time only. This applies to ALL rear engine riders from Snapper up until about 2 years ago when they made a SERIOUS mistake and redesigned them

Snapper mower engine

The RER mowers have a vent on the filler cap that must be opened to allow air in to replace the fuel that is burned. They also have an inline filter that could be plugged, but allow enough fuel to slowly seep into the float bowl and run for a short time.
I would check those two things, look for crud in the tank at the outlet, and check the float bowl for being dirty or having water. A 1/2" wrench will remove the float bowl. Be sure to drain the tank, or catch the fuel that will flow with the bowl removed. If the fuel does not flow, it is also possible the fuel line has started to disintegrate internally, while looking perfect on the outside. Pull the fuel line from the carb inlet to check gravity flow from the tank.
