Husqvarna Lawn Tractor Won't Start

My Husqvarna GTH2448T lawn tractor will not start. It turns over, but sounds like it is only firing on one piston (one lunger) chug-chug. I tried disconnecting the spark plug wires on both sides and it sounds the same. Any suggestions?

There is a switch under the seat that is a safety switch. It will only allow the tractor to start if someone is sitting on it. It has a sensor that can tell if weight is on the seat. It may be broken or disabled.

How long has it been since you used your mower? Has it been running this season? New or old fuel?

  • I feel sure you know your problem could be a number of things and you may have to just check one item at a time.
  • Some things come to mind to check.
  • Solenoid ~ clean or new plugs - gas filter ~ old gas ~ water in gas ~ air filter ~ carburetor out of adjustment ~ Engine valves out of adjustment. (hopefully not this one)
  • Ad

  • Any one or more of the above items could cause problems with starting.

I would suggest you call your local dealer and ask someone in the service/repair shop to help you out with what problem is most common with this model.

This type of question in asked quite frequently on ThriftyFun so maybe you might read some past answers. The second link is to a download site for a manual for your mower that might have some help (check page #25).
