Q:

riding mower will turn but wo'nt start changed spark pluges

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor.

There are three basics the engine needs: Ignition, Compression, and Fuel. The specifics can vary from model to model, and your Manage My Home profile did not list what model this might be, but there are some quick checks you can do to see if you have these three basics. I am assuming from your question that this is a engine with a good battery and that it is just turning over and not firing at all, but even if that is not the case these basic checks can still help narrow down the source of the problem. First, go back to the spark plug. Remove the leads, or wires, that connect from the engine to the plug. Remove the plug and put them back in the leads. Now position the leads so the metal end of the plug is against the engine or another clean unpainted metal ground point. Keep your hands away from the plugs so you do not get shocked, and turn the key to the start position. Look for sparks at the ends of the Spark Plug. Look carefully as they might be hard to see in sunlight or other bright lights. If there is spark there then you have ignition, the first of the three basics. If not, you likely have an electrical problem that needs to be traced. The engine should have been spinning over faster once the plug was removed and you should hear air rushing out of the spark plug holes in puffs. You could even try putting a thumb or finger over each plughole to see if the pressure pushes your finger off when turning over, just be careful not to touch the grounded plugs so you do not get shocked. If that all happens then you have the second ingredient, compression. If not then you may need a valve adjustment or may have a broken component inside the engine. That leaves fuel. Check the tips of the plug you just removed, if fuel is reaching the engine there should be some residue there and they should look somewhat wet. If you used your finger to check compression then you may even see some residue on your finger. If there is fuel here, your problem may be old fuel or a timing issue. Try putting a small amount of good fuel into the throat of the carburetor and turn the key to start. If your problem is fuel related only, the engine should now try to start, or even run, until the fuel you put in is gone. That would indicate the fuel supply is being stopped in the fuel tank, fuel line, fuel filter, fuel pump, or carburetor. Some carburetors have a solenoid to stop the fuel supply when the key is off and a malfunction there could also be the problem. I hope this is helpful.

Q:

Type 1 conversion kit / parts list Model# 790.74403995

A:

A qualified installer should convert this range back to natural gas. The LP conversion kit instructions normally have information on the how to convert the range back to natural gas from propane. I do not have a copy of those instructions. I will try to get those instructions from the manufacturer. Once I receive those instructions, I should be able to provide the installer with some assistance in converting this range back to natural gas.

I will update this thread as soon as I receive the LP conversion kit instructions from the manufacturer.

Hello David. I just received the LP conversion kit instructions from the manufacturer. Those LP conversion kit instructions included a section for converting the range back to natural gas. The first 3 pages shown below have the information for converting this range back to natural gas. The instructions show the sizes of the orifices that are needed for that natural gas conversion. I do not see those individual orifices listed through the parts diagram on our Sears PartsDirect.com website. I recommend that you check with your gas company or a local appliance parts supplier in your local area to obtain those natural gas orifices (unless you can find the ones that were originally installed in the range). In the 4th image below, I provided the sizes of Propane (LP) orifices that were installed during the conversion. That information should help you with the configuration of the natural gas orifices on the burners. I hope that this information will help your installer properly convert this range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
