SOURCE: I have a 757 Z-TRAK. It just won't throttle up

A small air bleed tube is located under the carb. It makes a 90 degree turn and if it is folded from fatigue or heat the mower will have little or no power. Simply remove it from its bracket and it will relieve the tension enough to allow air to bleed.

SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Runs fine when blades not

If it has a B&S engine, and many do, try this. Remove one spark plug at a time and start the engine. If it runs with one plug, but not the other, then you have a dead cylinder. That is why it seems to run OK so long as no load is on it.

I have had 2 different mowers with B&S engines which bent the valve push rods on the left (as the driver sits) side of the engine causing the problem you speak of. And if you google this issue you will find that I am not the only person who ever had this scenario.

If you have the OHV type engine you can pull off the little valve cover, next to the spark plug, and see the rocker arms and the push rods behind them. Replacing them is about as easy as it looks, however setting the gap between the top of the valve and the rocker is best left to someone who knows what they are doing.

I have an Ariens 46"Hydro Model 936053. Tractor is 2 years old and thought I just had a dead battery.. After charging, I began mowing, after about 15 minutes the Blades stopped turning while still...


First: check the battery because if it was dead then it might not be any good... Then after replacing said battery, hook a volt meter up to your battery and it should read over 13.2 and might even climb up to 14+. Anything over 15.5 or so will cook your battery. Your engine died because the safety solenoid in the bottom of the carb lost voltage... but I am only supplying what I would do in this situation by using your description.

When the blades of the mowing deck are engaged the engine starts missing and shutting down. Otherwise the engine runs fine.


Sounds like you may have safety switch problems. Does it have an electric clutch, or is it all manual pulleys. Check the switch on the engager for the blades first before doing anything else.

Assuming everything is correctly aligned that should be and everything below the deck is not binding in any way then the excessive fuel consumption and the dying under load is probably connected.

Something is clearly not to specifications - fuelling or timing or restricted breathing (intake or exhaust), spark power and suchlike. I suggest you revisit both the list of specifications and the motor...

My JD riding mower just stopped during a recent mowing


There was a time when my JD just quit and did nothing. After doubting the battery that is what it was-the battery. Jump start your JD and if it starts up then your battery needs replaced.
