If theres a safety mech's on them make sure blades and pto are disengaged, also sometimes you have to depress clutch or have the parking brake set, just like if you are mowing and decide to stop and put it in nuetral if the blades are lowered and pto engaged when you leave the seat the motor will cut off. if that isn't it make sure your spark plug is pushed all the way on.

When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

Ford 601 tractor starting problems


Ok lets start at the start on this one. Which of the following best describes the situation?

- Turn key and nothing, no lights on dash, no noises.
- Turn Key and weak lights that flicker in start position and clicking noises
-Turn key, strong lights but little to no movement from engine or a strange noise comes when key is turned
-Turn key, strong lights, engine turns over but will not fire.

A tractor is a complex piece of machinery and something like an engine that will not start could indicate one of many problems, with some trial and error you can generally work out what the problem is be we need somewhere to start.

Nothing happens when you turn on the lawn mower key for craftsman mower model 917 272072. I put a new battery in the mower, and new switch and a new solenoid switch but the mower don't make any noise when...


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.

My riding mower blows fuses once you turn the key.


Sounds like you are on the right path, maybe some wires on the ignition were replaced backward, and you are sending +12v directly to ground? Does it blow right away?
