There could be several issues with your motor. Try following these steps to see if you can troubleshoot and repair the problem.

Step 1
Check you filter on the mower. You have one of two problems, the starter solenoid and a contaminated fuel problem.

Step 2
Try to find a way to turn the engine by hand to make sure the engine isnt seasing up.

Step 3
Check you fuel shot off solenoid.

Step 4
To check the fuel shut off solenoid follow the steel injection lines back to the tractors pump from the injectors. The solenoid should be there.


Step 5
Check under the seat or in the battery box for your master switch. Make sure all the wires are attached to the switch.

Step 6
The fuel shutoff on the tractor is electrical and when the engine is interrupted the current to the solenoid is affected.
