Riding Mower Won't Start?

My brother has an old riding mower (90s I think) that won't start. He put in fresh gas, a new battery, and fresh oil, but the engine won't start. He says it's just making a click, the motor shakes, but nothing happens. He is tight on money and can't afford major repairs or parts. Any suggestions on what's wrong with it and how to fix it?

The switch is under the seat. Disconnect it and reconnect it.

I it's been setting up for along period of time you might have to take and remove the cover and clean the magnets on the where the too turns so it can get good fire to it and check the concection's on the plug and make sure its not all rusted if so clean it so it can connect and get good fir

I started my Simplicity LTH mower after a long winter; it started right up. However, I didn't realize it was so low on fuel (should have checked).

When i put more fuel (old fuel) it wouldn't start or even sputter a little. What should I do?

Clean out the carburetor and it should do the trick

I have had pretty good luck cleaning the carburetor. Then if it still doesn't start up, add some fuel cleaner to the tank.

Follow the directions for the amount. Even with new gas, there still can be some bad gas or moisture in the system.
