I have been troubleshooting my riding lawn mower all the way to the starter. Everything is in check and I have a new battery, but it hasn't been started in a couple years and the flywheel will only turn one time and stop when I turn the switch. I wonder what could be the problem?

If you stored it with gas, that may be the problem. The fuel lines may be clogged.

usually when these things sit for a while they have trouble starting precisely because fuel lines get clogged or bent or they just need to be used. Also sometimes the terminals get gunked up. I would just keep trying it and cleaning it out and then starting again

My Ariens riding mower motor is popping while running; it sounds like popcorn popping! It has fresh gas, a new fuel filter, etc. Several times I used carb. starter spray.

Hi,

Could it be the spark plug gap length? Shutting off the motor, without letting the mower idle a bit, could cause this.

Also a damaged spark plug will cause backfire, and a carburetor which needs adjustment will also cause afterfire.

I am including a link to Ariens support:

Have a blessed day!

I have a Ariens riding lawn mower. It will crank and run, but it will stop cutting while continuing to run. The blade will not engage. Any suggestions?

If the blade doesn't engage, you may have problems with the pulley or switch.
