I was cutting grass with My Riding Lawn Moore I herd a loud noise and it shut down. When I crank it it spins but no contact or fire. Crank and blades turn but no sounds of starting. It is spinning like a car when the timming belt breaks.

Check fuel pump and check gas tank and filter for dirt, check oil level if all ok check kill switches also it maybe the shaft key may have broke it is just a long square piece of metal that is hammered in to a grove in the shaft and is meant to brake off so the shaft wont break if something hard is hit. The mower wont start till this is replaced.

My z5426 has allways left grass behind,i have to cut my lawn twice


Are your blades sharp? Are they lined up so they do not leave grass in between them as they spin?
Is your cutting deck level or is one side higher than the other.
These are all things that could cause long grass to remain.
Some times a bent blade will do this also.
I even had a lawn mower come in and the blades were installed up side down. He wondered why it would not cut right.

My craftsman ys4500 21hp riding lawn mower cranks but won't fire and I have tried everything


Have you pulled a plug and checked for fire? There is a huge difference between crank and no fire or crank and no start. If you have spark, make sure air filter is clean. Next step make sure you have fuel to the carb. After that the carb would be the next step. Have it cleaned and rebuilt.

I changed the deck drive belt & the baldes spin but when I lower the cut height from the highest setting(5) down one (4) the blades spin slows down too much & it's not cutting the grass. I need to...


Sounds like you had to change the belt because their is too much resistance in the shafts that the blades are attached to. This may be from grass. Anyway, that is where I would check, to make sure everything turns freely when not connected to the belt .

Sounds like the plug has stripped the threads, any good machine shop will fit a heli coil ( thread insert ) in the head to restore the thread.

2007 Husqvarna Riding mower blade will not engage when switch pulled out. Fuse blows & mower dies! Help!


Sounds like you electric blade clutch is bad. I just had the same thing happen to my exmark mower. I was cutting grass and the engine just shut down. It would not crank over. Checked the fuses and replaced one blown fuse. The engine wanted to crank over but it was locked up. I looked the engine over and seen that the bearing in the electric clutch seized up causing the clutch to melt.

Safety switch at seat or reverse. Mower will cut of when blades are engaged if you get off the seat or put into reverse. Check these switches for stuck on, damaged, disconnected, or just plain broke. Good luck.

You might want to check this may sound silly but check to see if the blades were put on upside down.

Craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut


It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps
