Craftsman riding mower won't start, please help Newbie!
I am a 1st time person to forum, please be patient I need help. Ok my Craftsman 17hp riding mower is only 21/2 years old and last year had to replace idler bearing which was just barely under the warranty thank goodness. This year My mower won't start. It was stuck in gear.I couldn't get it to go forward neutral or backward. So I did locate the problem and pulled the break extension out and unlocked it in it worked. I had to replace the battery it was dead and I put a brand new one on it. So I fully expected it to start. However it still wouldn't start.it makes no noise it doesn't crank it doesn't do anything it doesn't fire doesn't do anything. I already check the starter is fine. Oh one thing I need to add, when the clutch is depressed it lock up again in I have to re lease it again by hand. And I am totally confused now. Nevertheless it still will not start.
