Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348

1 Answer

My Rider will not turn over it just makes a strong noise as if it is trying to start but not kicking over. It also will not go in forward or backwards the rear wheels seem froze. The brake is not on and the handle in the back has been checked I was trying to push it to get it in the truck to take it to a repair shop but it will not budge. Just before it stopped working it sounded as if it ran over metal wires.

    If this is an OHV B&S engine, like on my 2148, you may well have bent valve push rods. There are little valve covers by the sparkplugs which you can remove and inspect these yourself. You can google B&S, OHV, and "bent push rods" and find out you are not alone. The trick in replacing them is the fine adjustment so do not undertake yourself unless you are familiar with this process. Mine also seems to resist movement from time to time even when in neutral and with the engage handle in disengage. I have gently rocked it back and forth until it lets go, has yet to hurt it and I have about 500 hours on it.

Not starting


If I understand your statement correctly, noise but the engine will not "turn over." This sounds like the starter motor is running but the gear that engages the flywheel gear-teeth is not making contact at all or is moving into too-slight contact, just enough to make a lot of noise. In U.S. cars the device on the stater motor that moves the starter gear forward is called a "Bendix." As the starter motor starts to turn, the Bendix shoves a small gear forward, engaging teeth on the flywheel which spins the flywheel to start the engine. If the Bendix is sticking or has failed the gear will not move forward at all or not far enough.

Sarting with the least cost first, I'd look toward a "sticky" bendix. Try using a light penetrating oil or perhaps, WD-40 to free-up the Bendix.

How to start yamaha yz 400f?


pull the choke out, make sure fuel is on, DO NOT turn the throttle before starting. now you have to make sure the cylinder is at the top of the stroke, give the bike a couple short, easy kicks your not trying to kick it over yet, you are just trying to get the piston to the top of the cylinder, as your givivng it the short easy kicks, you will notice that the kick is getting shorter and harded......until you are at the top of the stroke....now it is ready to kick over, hold the hot start lever in about half way to release some compressionand give it a hard strong kick, if it doesnt start on that kick, make sure you are at the top of the cylinder again and when you are, give it another strong hard kick all the way to the bottom, when it starts immediatly release the decompression lever or you could do damage to the valves. relaese the choke, you dont want to leave the choke on too long because it is a very rich gas mixture and will eat the oil off the cylinder walls after a while. and DO NOT high rev the bike until it is warm, because you need to make sure that oil has gotten to the top end. it isnt a 2 stroke, ya cant make her screem right away.

When I turn on the air conditioner after a few seconds it starts making a horrible noise....it works when the noise is not there, but once the noise starts the it doesn't blow as strong.


Usually you get a horrible noise,once the compressor starts...May be the instant the compressor starts the voltage drops down and so it doesnt blow as strong as you expect... If u expect a comparitively heavy blow then adjust the thermostat to 20 degree celsius...Try this,I hope this works out...

John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move


Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60

Yazoo rider left side pump stalls when cold


Im not a yazoo dealer but I can tell you some easy things to check, If you have a reservoir tank with an oil filter in line, there are two kinds of hoses suction and return if there is an air leak on a suction line it may not show an oil leak but it will put air into the pump making it week most of the time its cheap
hose clamps or loose hydro filter .

A lot of hydro use a gear case bolted right to the pump without any hoses , but that not what we call commercial .
good luck

Peg Perego Thomas Train Track Rider


The red button on the right must be held down for anything to move. It turns the lights on, makes some train noises, then moves forward. If you don't hold the button down, nothing will happen. Note that when the train is underway, the left red button becomes a train whistle. Otherwise, when the train is not running, that left button produces music. Hope this helps.

1998 pontiac transport montana starting problems


It could be the starting motor is faulty or was not installed correctly, particularly if you are finding it turns over the engine slower than it should (dragging and dragging down the battery voltage). When starting the car, the teeth must mesh properly with the ring gear or all sorts of strange things will eventually happen. Alignment is controlled by shims on the mounting bolts and if they are the wrong ones or missing, also usually bad news.
