My JD JS35 mower hit a stump and instantaneously stopped. It won't start. Occasionally it will fire once. What might be wrong?


Hi, it has most likely sheared the flywheel key and thrown the timing out. Also check that it has not bent the blade or crankshaft. Regards Phil.

Stop on stop sign engine died


If the engine won't fire up, but your starter turns over, you may want to check your timing unless you have a check engine light on. If the CEL light is on, have the codes scanned.

If the engine won't turn over with the starter or it clicks, have your battery tested at autozone or advanced auto parts. Replace the battery if it is bad. Else, have your starter tested.

If the engine still won't turn over and the battery and starter are tested fine, you may have a blown fuse, bad ignition switch, or a failed relay.

If the engine fires up but randomly dies and starts back up, you either have a failed sensor, failing fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad plugs or wires, or a failing ECU.

I have a craftsman mower with the B&S 21hp Intek OHV motor, it starts fine but when you go to engage the blade or go forward or backward or release the parking brake it will die unless you disengage...


Check the switch on the seat, of all places. There's a safety switch on the seat that will kill the engine if it's not engaged when do anything other than start and run the engine.

If the switch checks out, get back with me.

I have a Husqvarna 235 that decided it didn't want to start anymore. It's only a few months since I got it. It was used the cut up a small tree that fell down in a wind storm and used again while...


Has the fuel been in it since you last used it? if so drain and re fill with fresh fuel oil, work the primer plenty of times to flush the old fuel out, crank the engine twice only with the choke out, then push it fully back in and crank again until it fires up.

Engine stalls at 30mph upon hitting accellerator, then coasts to a stop. then won't restart. starter works, engine turns over, but won't fire up. next morning car starts fine. next week...


you may have to check the fuel pump function for pressure and volume when this happens as it could be a bad pump,you could have it checked when working as it could show up something but more likely should be done when it stops running.

New mower hit small stump, cuts too low now/ can't adjust height


It is a bend blade. I feel your pain...I had a riding lawnmover that took a good two-hours to take apart and chage blades and 3/4 of an acre with old ornamental garden root balls popping up all the time. That was a long summer...

You may want to get the blade ahead of time so whomever can help you look under the mower can change the blade once they confirm it is bent. Even if they can fix the old one it is a blade you will need sooner or later and they are not very expensive.
