Tecumseh Riding Mower & Tractor Parts

View Models

So you're ready for the lawn to look its best, but for some reason, you just can't seem to get that mower to kick over and start. Let Sears PartsDirect help you alleviate your grass-cutting woes with a full line of Tecumseh riding mower and tractor parts combined with a healthy heap of how-to advice.

Check the Battery and Ignition System

If your riding mower has been stored for a lengthy period, there's a good chance that the battery is dead or other riding mower parts have deteriorated over time. Remove the battery and charge or replace it, and check battery cables and ignition wires for damage.

Perform a Quick Tune-Up

Before you begin dismantling various parts of the machine, perform a good old-fashioned tune-up, as this can often rectify serious problems with an engine. Begin by swapping out all of the filters, and then drain and replace the engine's oil. Check the throttle assembly for any stuck links or broken lines, and inspect spark plugs for oil or any corrosion. For more advanced mower and lawn tractor repair help, check out the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual for a list of possible solutions.

Inspect the Carburetor

If the mower or tractor is turning over but not starting, it probably has a fuel delivery problem. Find the carburetor, and see if you can manually adjust the choke plate within the throat. If the plate moves with ease, you might just need to adjust the set screws to create a suitable air/gas ratio. If it's stuck, you may need someone to remove it and rebuild or replace it.

Finding the right part for your riding-mower maintenance is easy at Sears PartsDirect. Simply choose your model from the list above, click the chat button, or call 1-800-252-1698.
