Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

Hi, I have a MTD 115B (briggs and straton 11.5hp) Mower started after winter layover and ran perfectly. The following day it started OK but after switching off would not restart - the indications were a run-down battery. Battery now fully charged but there is nothing when you turn the start key. Fuse OK and power as far as the solenoid but no lights or battery meter. Can you help

    Check your starter switch and if that is not the problem the plunger switch under the brake or seat may be bad

SOURCE: CST1000 Black & Decker Cordless Trimmer/Edge won't start

http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/blackdecker/CST2000_TYPE_1

Part number #243614-00.
It's a microswitch made by Honeywell that costs about 5 bucks plus shipping.
The attached file has the schematic and parts list.
The CST2000 is well worth spending a few bucks to keep it going. Finding a local B&D authorized service center near you will even save you the shipping as they can order it for you.
Every other component is pretty dependable- the motor, battery, wiring, charging system, spool system- all built to last.
Only down side is you really only get 20 to 25 minutes of hard weedwhacking before you need to recharge. Of course, it's time for a cold beer in the pool by then.

SOURCE: Lawn Mower won't start

Its a thing of beauty to see problems solve themselves. It seems to me this trial and error approach is very taxing and could have been avoided if 1, your small engine repair guy/Craftsman/Sears had sold you the right parts from the start, or 2, you had bought the right part... from the start.

Manual for a briggs and straton riding lawnmower model #13ac762f755


Do you need the manual for the machine or for the engine? Your model number comes back to a MTD Yard Man mower.

You can go to Briggs' website after you get the serial and model of the engine, for a manual on the engine.

If you need particulars for the mower - follow the link. Yard Man Riding Mower 13AC762F755

What could be wrong with my briggs and straton 271470 I already replaced the carb and governor but still stals out when the engine gets hot?


Check the coil,sometimes they run till hot then shut down when going bad after engine gets hot, also check to make sure for continuous gas flow unobstructed by dirty filter or water or trash in fuel.

MTD Briggs and Straton 22" Mower Wont Start Brand


You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

Need a fuel tank for a Troy Bilt mower


You won't find the fuel tank on MTD's site because it is part of the engine. MTD makes the mower, Briggs and Stratton makes the engine. Get the model and type number off the engine and search Briggs and Stratton's site or post it here and I will tell you the part #. Dwain
