2008 Cub Cadet LT1042 Won't Start

Hi,

I have an LT1042 that just up and quit. I was mowing and the darn thing just shut off.

I replaced the spark plug, cleaned air filter, oil (was full), etc.... I checked the plug and it is sparking. Put just a bit of gas into the spark plug hole and it started right up for about a second then quit again. So it's seems like it's not getting fuel for some reason, but not sure why.

Anyone have any ideas?

SOURCE: cub cadet 1610 rans the battery down went mowing.

Hello bigdave1138:

From your Description it Sounds like the Stator/Charging Coils are Bad or the Voltage Regulator (if Applicable) is Bad.
For Testing the Electrical (Charging) System on Mowers you can Use this Site Addy; http://faqs.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/faqs.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3438&p_created=1101706364&p_sid=4fQ1f8Xi&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=3443&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NTEmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPTAmcF9wdj0mcF9jdj0mcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1Wb2x0YWdlIGFuZCBTdGF0b3IgQ2hlY2s*&p_li=&p_topview=1 and Use the Link for AC Volts/DC Amps Meter Setting Chart. This is for Briggs Engines and Works Well for Kohler and Other Engine OEMs.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2160 cub cadet that wont start.hot spark to the plugs

You've solved for some of the equation. Spark. Fuel. Air.....all in the proper sequence. Now, what condition are the plugs ? I'd change them out if they have any wetness to them. Check your fuses as well. Another thing is the 'safety switches' - located in seat, on parking brake, etc. One of these could have come undone or gone bad/loose wire. I'm thinking the latter....

SOURCE: what do I do if my cub cadet 1862 has no spark?

Try replacing the spark plug first, if still no spark, sounds like the ignition coil is going/bad.

SOURCE: Cub Cadet LT1042 PTO won't disengage

If its an electric PTO then the switch on the dash is bad, Its a lever type ungagement then the little break shoes that rub on the blade spindles are either worn out or mis adjusted.If it started when you changed the blade drive belt its possibly the wrong belt??

Cub cadet lt1050 starts but after mowing for awhile i shut it off it wont start again


be sure the air fins on the engine are clean. make sure the fuel line is away from heat source. loosen the fuel cap and see if it starts. sometimes if the cap don't vent it will not let it start. change the spark plug. check to see when it does this if it still has spark. the coil may be going bad.

I have a Cub Cadet 1605 and it does the same exact thing. Try the PTO switch on the dash. I replaced mine and it works fine. Hope this helps.

hard to say, I would make sure the inline fuse is good, then use a vehicle and jump start the mower. I am sure you know how to ensure the mower is ready to start, so we won't cover the pto,brake,etc. Good Luck Tim

My cub cadet mower LT1042 will not start. It acts like it wants to, and you can really smell gas too. Has a new battery, starter, and spark plug.


Just had the same problem with our LT1042 and it was the fuel shut off soloniod. Could not buy just that piece so we took it off and cut off the piece that went up on the carborator and put it back on. Started right up. Now it back-fires when we shut it off but it runs.

Nearly all lawn tractors on the market are designed to kick the cutting deck out of drive when reverse is engauged.

This is controlled by a simple electronic microswitch which can be disconnected but I would advise to leave it as it is ;)
