I have a craftsman riding mower model 247.288810. While cutting my lawn the engine all stalled and would not start anymore. I changed the spark plug and the battery is new, what could it be?


there are 3 safety switches,clutch,deck and seat, Craftsman 247288810 Lawn Tractor Parts
take the cover off so u can access the coil,unhook the black wire from the coil,not spark plug cable,try to start it,if it starts then a safety switch is bad,if it doesnt,then jump the solenoid,if it starts then it is the seat or clutch switch,if you want to bypass safety switches,connect a switch to the ground and coil

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

Check to make sure battery is above 12.3 volts, secondly bypass the solenoid to the starter by using jumper cables and see if the starter works, if so, you sureley have a safety switch problem, I beleive you have five on this model,
good luck

Some of the riding mowers has a safety switch under the seat so when you get off it shuts off. If it goes bad it will not start. check by bypassing the switch. For safety make sure it's in neutral. This is a long shot . But it can be eliminated as a problem after being checked.
