Craftsman Riding Mower Won't Start?

Craftsman Riding Mower Won't Start - closeup of mower engineMy Craftsman riding mower won't start. I have replaced fuel lines, fuel filter, air filter, coil, spark plug, and the battery but the damn thing won't start. I have cleaned everything good, I can spray carb cleaner in the neck and it will try to start, but won't. What else can I do? I also added fresh gas and a fuel stabilizer just in case. Any suggestions will help. It is a Craftsman LT 2000 with Briggs and Stratton 18.5 HP OHV. I'm really frustrated with the whole lawn mower thing.

Sometimes you have to disconnect and reconnect the switch, which is located under the seat.

It sounds like you at the end of your rope and definitely need "professional" help.
Please call your local Sears Service/Parts center and ask them for help. I have always gotten very good answers (even if I did not buy anything) but they may ask you to bring your mower to their shop. They do know all of the common problems and can run down the list with you to see if you have covered all bases.

After all, you are using their machine so they should try to help you.
