Q:

917.272230 will not start

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your tractor model 917.272230; sorry you are experiencing a problem, I will be glad to assist you. I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. Here are the basic checks to make on a mower that will not start.You need to determine if the problem is no fuel, no compression, or no spark. Remove the spark plug and hold your finger or thumb on the hole the spark plug screws in. Have someone turn the key to start the engine. The compression should push your finger off the spark plug hole. This will tell you the valves are operating inside the engine and you have compression. Pour a thimble full of fuel into the hole the spark plug came out of. Quickly install the spark plug and pull the starter rope or engage the starter. The engine should try to start. This would tell you there is a spark and the engine will run if you get fuel. If the engine doesn't try to start, pour another thimble full of fuel into the cylinder. Look at the anode of the spark plug and see if it is wet. Try to start the engine again. If it still doesn't try to start, remove the spark plug and connect the ignition wire to the spark plug. Hold the bottom of the spark plug to a clean area on the engine block. Use insulated pliers or gloves to hold the spark plug to prevent shock. Get someone to pull the starter rope or engage the starter and see if you get a blue spark from the anode of the spark plug to the base of the plug. If there is no spark the ignition module on the engine is bad. If you have spark the problem is in the fuel supply. Did you run the engine after draining the fuel to burn the fuel out of the carburetor? If not the carburetor will be clogged with the remnants of the old fuel and need to be cleaned replaced. If you require further assistance please submit more details.  Here is a link to order any parts you need.
