SOURCE: I just purchased a used Ariens sport zoom 1440.

Change the oil and air filter. Look for grease fittings on all moving parts and give them a shot.

SOURCE: blades won't turn to cut grass

On the chute where the grass comes out there is a black piece of metal under the edge of the deck held on by the 2 big thumb screws is probably bent. You will need to try to move the blade on the side near the chute by hand (Make sure the mower is not running when you do this) if the blade touches the black piece of metal it will kill the mower if you engage the blades and try moving forward. Anyway you need to take the black metal piece off and bend the corner out of the way (I used a crescent and clamped it to the hitch on my pickup). I am guessing i went over something like a street curb with the deck when it was to low and that bent it. Now when ever I move the mower from someones yard or drive it across the street I always raise the deck up all the way. I hope this helps

SOURCE: I neglected to run my Ariens 5524 snowbower dry last spring.

No, just spraying gumout in the carb will not likely help. You will need to remove the carb, disassemble it and clean it. I suggest replacing the needle, bowl gasket and bowl nut gasket. Be sure you have cleared all passages in the carb.

SOURCE: I have an ariens zoom 1540 hydrostatic mower. One

There is one common problen that causes this. Infront of the rear wheels there are two housings for the indepentent hydrostatic transmissions. There is one gold colored shaft with a ninety degree angle on it sticking out from EACH of the housings on the top front. Again these are on both sides and they each need to be pushed downward so that the rods can then be pushed backward into the transmissions to inguage them so both of the wheels are powered.

Key won't fit into ignition

Perhaps the key is bent? Maybe you need to order a new switch and key online. It would help to know what you're doing to try and get it to insert, or even the make and model of the mower.

OF course if you keep turning the engine oner,the starter is going to get hot and start smoking.Its not the battery thats the problem,it sounds like you may have a carb problem or maybe just need a new spark plug

I have a 2005 ariens zoom 22/50 and it won't start. Battery and starter are new. Both work (tested) It doesn't seem to turn over. half a cycle and boggs down.

more info would be nice. did you check the oil ? may be too much oil in motor ,(may be gas in base) change oil if needed. remove plug or plugs,ground them, try starter now. (if there is gas in base, your float may be full of gas,"sinking",replace float", ) if motor still dosn`t turn, try removeing all drive belts,and try again.

Bad battery or starter

Hook a known good battery out of another vehicle or take the leads off of your mower battery and hook a set of jumper cables from your car battery and see if it turns over hard still. Does the mower run good once started or does it not start at all because of the slow starting?
