Make sure it has gas and at the bottom of the tank open the valve that allows gas flow. By the steering wheel there should also be a choke. Make sure it is closed for startup.

I have a Troy Bilt 175 HP 500cc 7 speed riding mower. I just bought a new battery, and it still won't crank. It'll turn over like it wants to, but nothing. I put new gas with the old gas from last season...


If you didn't put fuel stabilizer in gas before letting the mower setup all winter, your gas has gunked up your carb.
You can verify this by removing the air filter and spraying starter fluid in the carb. If it cranks with the starter fluid, the carb is dirty.
Pull the carb and clean it out

I bought a john deere riding mower less than a year ago. i used it last season without any problems. I think the last time i used it, was in august 2010. winter came about, the grass wasn't growing, so...


First, I've had a motorcycle for almost 50 years and have never drained the gas. At one point it was not used for 3 years. It started, I added gas and it ran fine.
Second, next time you are running the machine and it begins to stall, immediately loosen the gas cap. If it starts to run good again, drill out the air vents on the cap.
