Sounds like the alternator under neath the flywheel has gone bad. This could happen from jumping the mower of a vehicle still running. The alternator on the vehicle puts out to much power for the mower and will damage or blow the alternator on the mower.

Why mu old yard machine riding lawn mower will sometimes start right up and other times it won't even turn over?

Sounds like you battery is not up to snuff. Should get it checked out. I would start there first. If the battery is up where it should be you could have a bad starter.

Now you are describing 2 different problems... If you have nothing I doubt the battery is dead but would check for a safety switch problem.

My Yard machine will not turn over at all. the batterie is fully charged, theres no corrosion on the terminals. So what else could be causing this?

check the connections on the starter solenoid. Assuming starter is good, thats the prob. Check connections on ignition switch
