Remove battery and bring inside. Let it set for a few hours to warm up, it may be partially frozen. If you have a battery charger, after it has warmed up fully, charge it at a slow rate (1A) overnight. Put it back in the mower and try again. If still nothing, the battery may be ruined.

You probably have already done this, but I had a JD 111 rider awhile ago and did most of the things you have done with no success. Then I replaced the fuel line and "BINGO" it worked great after that. Seems the line had a weak spot and would **** closed when trying to start.


Good Luck

Thought I posted a solution earlier on this, but it was my first post and I don't see it here so I'll try again.
Google search on your model shows the drive belt diagram on page 27 of the manual.

Looks like mine.
basically need to remove front pulley by loosening center bottom bolt while holding the center nut on top of motor.
Slip belt over the rear pulley first and then straight toward the front, slip belt on front pulley and then slide pulley back onto shaft.
Then wind through the rest of the pulleys etc..as seen in the diagram.

I have a Craftsman mower powered by a Briggs and Stratton 775 platinum professional series with OHV. A couple of weeks after using my mower, I started it up and I heard a knocking sound I shut it off...


There is the possibility that the valves need adjusting. As you probably know, if they are too far out of adjustment, starting will be difficult and there will be "runnability" issues. The Briggs OHV engines all have adjustable overhead valves. Just remove the little cover stamped OHV, careful with the thin gasket behind it and get a feeler gauge, possibly a Torx head driver and box wrench to do the job. Some of the set screws for the rocker arms have slotted heads maybe. The Briggs site has the instructions for this and ALL the specs on all their engines pertaining to valve clearance on intake and exhaust. Many of their OHV engines also incorporate a compression release feature which correct valve adjustment is critical for it's correct operation. If you need more help or links to the Briggs help (under FAQ), then post back.
Most Briggs OHV engines are set at 1/4" past TDC on the power stroke. Many adjust them at TDC (with both valves closed), but for the sake of the compression release (works off the cam), Briggs specifies 1/4" below TDC on Power Stroke.

Hello, W/D here.

Look for a transmission disconnect rod, usually at the back of the tractor, about even with the top of the gearbox. If it has been moved to the out position, the transmission will not operate from the seat, but you can push it.

Good luck, --W/D--

It depends on the model but most riders have the following;

All need to be closed in order to start engine.
