Frigidaire is best known for its kitchen and home appliances that combine quality and value, but its riding mowers carry the same reliability that homeowners have come to expect from the brand. If the components of your lawn tractor become worn or damaged, you may have a hard time starting your machine. Before calling a repair technician, give these easy repairs and troubleshooting procedures a try.
The battery is one of the most common riding mower parts that need replacement, and it may be the culprit if the engine remains quiet while you attempt to start the tractor. Remove, charge and reinstall the battery before testing the engine again. If the battery discharges quickly, replace it with a new one.
The engine can't start without proper access to fuel. Check the filter, fuel pump and fuel lines for leaks or blockages, and clean or replace them if necessary. If you need more lawn tractor repair help, try tapping on the side of the carburetor to get fuel flowing.
From the spark plug to the air filter, many of the engine's components can affect your riding mower's starting ability if they become old or damaged. Check the oil filter, engine oil and air filter, and replace them if needed. Also remove the spark plug for thorough cleaning or purchase a replacement, and re-connect it securely to the mower. Prevent future start-up issues with regular engine tune-ups.
