Sounds like a common fuel problem you need to remove carb & fuel tank and unless you can get a compressor they need a good blast out you may even take carb apart & check diaghram they have very small jets in fact most lawnmower shops have a sonic bath for this

The large red cable from the battery should go to the large terminal on one side of the solenoid. The opposite side of the battery solenoid connection goes to the starter So now you have a heavy cable going from the battery to one side of the solenoid and another heavy cable (red) going to the starter connection. There should also be a small wire coming from the ignition switch to the small terminal on solenoid. If there are two small
terminals on solenoid, ground the other one. To test the ignition switch, just turn the key and see if you get 12 volts, then you know that part is good. If not, check your ignition switch. So, back to the solenoid-----. If
there are two small solenoid terminals with nuts for wires on the solenoid then the wires could be mixed up. So just reverse the two small wires and try again.
You would think they would make things easy and say on the solenoid, Battery connection here, and Starter connection here, and ignition switch wire here, but no, just nothing for the most part.
So now remember this is nothing more than a lightswitch type of a mechanism where instead of using your finger to flick the switch, we are using a small electric charge to momentarily close the light switch, in this case the starter motor, same idea.

First remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Then tilt the handles down to the ground. It helps to have something you can slide the handles under or otherwise hold them down. Underneath the mower deck there will be a drain plug. You are in front of the unit facing it the drain plug will be at about 7-o'clock a few inches from the cranckshaft. It will have a square hole in it. Use an extension on a 3/8ths drive ratchet in the square hole and remove the plug. Be careful not to cut yourself on the blade, I usually remove the blade first and sharpen it while the oil is draining. Loosening the dipstick from the tube on top will help it drain faster. When its done draining replace the plug and reinstall the blade if it was removed. Then refill from the dipstick tube. The unit will take approx. 22 ounces of oil. Do not overfill.

I have a 3 year old Poulan Pro 500EX, 46" cut lawn tractor. I stopped to put gas in and restarted the engine, but the lawn tractor won't move forward when drive pedal is depressed.
The engine loads up like the brake is on, but I checked brake and it is not engaged. Any ideas? All reponses greatly appreciated.

My Poulon riding lawn mower will not move when I put it into gear, and I found a 1 or 1.5 inch thin metal square shaped rod under my mower on the ground, could this be part of the problem
