A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more then happy to assist you. First, remove the front drive belt cover. Then stats the engine and engage the drive. If the pulley on the top of the gearbox is turning when the drive quits the problem is worn gear on the inside of the wheels or a broken gearbox. To determine which part is needed you have to replace. Remove the front wheels. Then inspect the gears on the wheels. If the teeth are worn off the wheels, need to be replaced. If the teeth are Ok, I suspect the gearbox is the problem. Hope this information has help you.

Q:

Mower won't start.

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry to hear your mower is giving you problems. Please use the following information to help get this issue resolved.

 

Make sure to use fuel that is less than 5 weeks old. Gas will start to break down and become less volatile.  If the gas is old, drain the tank refill with fresh fuel. Next, check the air filter and replace it if is not dry or clean.

 

If the engine does not start, you need to determine what is causing the problem. The engine need three things to start and they are fuel compression and spark. Use the following instructions to determine what is missing.

 

The first check is going to be if the engine is getting spark. Remove the spark plug from the engine and connect it to the spark plug wire. Use a pair of insulated pliers to the base of the spark plug against a metal part of the engine. Now have someone pull the starter rope. When the engine is turning over you should see the spark plug spark. If the plug does not spark, disconnect the spark plug and insert a screwdriver into the boot of the spark plug wire. _Make sure to hold onto the handle of the screwdriver._ Hold the metal portion of the screwdriver close to a bare metal part of the engine. Now pull the starter rope again with the starter. If you see a spark, you need to replace the spark plug. If you do not see, a spark most likely the ignition coil is defective.

 

Once you have determined the engine has spark you have to check for fuel. The easiest way to check for a fuel problem is to remove the air filter and pour a teaspoon of fuel mix into the throat of the carburetor.  Then try to start the engine. If the engine acts as if it wants to start or runs for a short time and stalls the problem with the engine is a fuel issue. Most likely, the carburetor does have some build up from old gas that remained in the carburetor over the winter. You can watch THIS VIDEO to use as a reference for cleaning your carburetor.

 

 

If the engine did not attempt to start with pouring the gas in the carburetor, I recommend checking the compression of the engine. To check the compression, remove the spark plug and tuck the wire out of the way. Hold your finger over the spark plug hole and pull the starter rope. When the engine turns over the compression should force air past your finger. If the engine does not force air out part your finger there is an internal engine problem.

 

 

 

 

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears  technician.  Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations:  Sears Home Services.

 

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thanks for your help/ I checked all of the issues that you mentioned and I saw that the spark plug had no spark and am following the ignition coil as the problem. How can I order a new one or fix the current one?

Before ordering a new ignition coil, you can do one final check to ensure this is the problem. First, remove the top of the engine to access the ignition coil. Then remove the smaller of the two wires connected to the coil. This is the kill wire. Once you have the kill wire disconnected, reinstall the top of the engine and recheck for spark. If you do not have spark I recommend replacing the ignition could. The coil can be ordered from the following link. Ignition coil part number: KM-21171-7011 If you do have spark, the problem is in the kill circuit. If this is the case, I recommend tracing the kill wire back to the engine control to ensure it is not shorted to ground. If the wire is fine, I recommend checking the engine control. Either the control is defective or the cable is not pulling far enough to disengage the kill switch. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
