SOURCE: Craftsman riding lawn mower will not turn over.

Check to see if there are any safety switches on the seat that may have gone bad and aren't allowing for it to start. Also check the clutch. Some mowers require it to be depressed in order for the engine to turn over.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

I started my craftsman 20 hp mower and my son had a fall and I popped the clutch out too fast, killed the mower, and now it won't start. What did I break by popping the clutch too hard?


I would start checking the clutch cable and see if it actually broke or if there is another issue with it like you have stretch the clutch cable.
