Riding mowers are not nearly as simple as a regular push mower. The first place I would look, is to make certain that all the safety switches are good and operating properly, particularly the seat safety. Then check the wiring harness for any breaks or burns in the wiring and check your fuses.

your problem description didn't indicate whether or not the motor actually turns over or not, if it does, check to be sure you are getting fuel and spark to the engine and that the air intake is not clogged up. If it doesn't turn over, check your starter relay and battery, along with their associated wiring.

John deere riding mower backfires when starting

Sounds like your cylindes are not getting gas after shutting the engine down ..this happens if the engine continues to run a little after the ignition is shut off or have too much throttle when shutting down..pumping gas into the cylinder un burned..and when you try and start the unused gas is immediately ignited coming back through the intake valves and out the carb..two things let it idle diwn as low as it can and shut it down .another is to shut the fuel shutoff valve before shutting down and let the carb gas be used up..that will not allow gas into the cylinders..just remember to turn back on fir a few seconds to refill the carb bowl before starting..good luck..

It must be something about oil pressure. Or there is massive oil leek so you are on low oil level again or something with oil pump or filter.

How to i find the slides over the throat of the carb to get to the jet needles... im having the same pproblem you solved but dont know where anny of the stuff you mentioned is.. you said move the sliders...

The slides are the bits inside the carbs that "slide" up and down when you work the throttle. The needle hangs in the centre of the slide on a clip, the needle will have about 5 grooves machined in it, The needle is small about 3mm in diameter and it is tapered towards the bottom. if you move the clip one groove down, the needle will sit higher and let more fuel through and visa versa. to get to these you have to unscew the tops of the carbs, its a little hard to explain the whole process by writing it down and there will be some small parts to fly off and lose, please make sure the throttle snaps back to idle properly before you test ride it
