When I turn the key switch to off it doesnt shut the motor off. It only shuts off when I move the choke lever to cold start or all the way up. Any ideas?

How do you start a 19th mtd riding mower


Put your left foot on the clutch pedal and push down all the way on the clutch. Move the throttle lever all the way to the top, this turns on the choke. Turn the key clockwise, to the right, to start the engine. Once the engine has started, move the throttle lever down to turn off the choke. You only need the choke when the engine is cold. If you use the choke while the engine is hot, you can flood the engine (too much gas) and this will fowl the spark plug. If you have flooded the engine, turn off the choke by lowering the throttle lever and try to start the engine a few times. If the engine doesn't start, then you may need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before trying to start the engine again. If the engine still does not start, then you can remove the spark plug to dry and to clean the spark plug. With the spark plug out, turn the key to the start position for 10 seconds, to push out excess fuel and fumes. Replace the spark plug and try starting the engine without turning on the choke.

I have a 2012 craftsman mdl 316.711970. I follow all maintenance requirements. It will only starts when the choke lever is in position 1. It takes forever to prime it cause the primer button doesnt pop...


I don't think so either. I think you have crud built up inside your fuel tank, and it needs to be thoroughly cleaned inside, Your carburetor may also need to be thoroughly cleaned inside.

My freedom z will not start


1. Be sure the fuel shutoff valve, located behind the
operator's seat, is completely open.
2. Sit in the operator's seat, fasten seat belt and place
the steering control levers in the neutral position.
3. Engage the parking brake.
4. Place the PTO switch in the disengaged position.
5. If the engine is cold, choke the engine as needed.
6. Move the engine throttle control to about half engine
speed.
7. Turn the ignition key to the START position and
release the key as soon as the engine starts. Do
not hold the key in the START position for more
than 15 seconds at a time. Allow at least 60
seconds between each cranking attempt to prevent
overheating of the starter motor. Prolonged cranking
can damage the starter motor and shorten battery
life.
8. Allow engine to warm before operating the mower.

Engine struggles to start when cold n wants to stay running after shutting off key


sounds like the choke is sticking closed or needs to be adjusted and the carbon build up from this condition is glowing red hot in the combustion chamber so when you turn off key the fuel keeps lighting off and you have run on. that is if the vehicle has a carb if it is fuel injected then i would check to see if injectors are leaking some older FI. cars had cold start valves and they went bad all the time

How do i turn it on


Depending on what kinda saw it is some have an on/off switch and some you just pull trigger lock and throttle up together and move the lever to choke position which activates switch and pull over till it snorts once then back off the lever 1 click and pull again till it starts, keep in mind when it starts it will be about 1/4 to 1/3 throttle so you will have to squeeze the trigger to release the fast throttle starting position, then to shut off just slide the lever one more click and it turns off, Hope I answered Your Question

Cub cadet RZT 42 shuts down after about 30 min of mowing.


Check your magneto. I have had them cease to function whenever they would get hot. When cooled down, they would work.

I have a 50 hp 1975 Johnson outboard. When I turn


There is a switch in the control box that locks out the start unless you are in neutral. Open the box and put in a new switch,this is a safty device to keep it from starting in forward and throwing you out of the boat. Jim OMC retired Mech

Have 1975 Merc 115 h.p. motor. won't turn over with key


it may be your neutral safety switch. Try it again but this time turn the key with one hand and wiggle the throttle/shifter lever at the same time. My 25 johnson does this, but usually I can wiggle the shifter and she'll turn over. Hope this helps.
