Question about Ariens Lawn Tractor 42"" Riding Lawn Mower 936051"
Does not turn over or does not start? Does not turn over usually means a bad battery or starter. Or connections which you have already checked. There may be a fuse block or inline fuse as well. Does it have a manual pull start as well? Does this turn over the engine or is it siezed up, low/no oil.
Turns over but does not fire usually is spark or the fuel. Back firing would guess spark plug or carberator (air fuel mixture) If it turns over but does not fire, try putting in some Seafoam fuel system cleaner. This will get the varnish-gunking stuff out of the carb. Mix in your tank, turn over quite a bit to get it pulled into your carb bowl and into some of the carb port holes. Let it soak a while and then turn over again every so often to pull in new cleaner. If it starts at some point it will stink a little while burning the cleaner in the tank.
Make sure you have check the old fuel lines and and air vacuum lines for pin holes and cracks as well. Change the plugs. Make sure the air filter is clean. Change the fuel filter. Does it fire if you shoot starter fluid in the carb air intake, this would suggest a fuel issue, such as dirty carb, bad fuel line or fuel filter, or fuel pump.
