April 27, 2015
When i let off the pedal for the transmission its supposed to stop moving. But it keeps moving forward slowly. Foot pedal wont let me put in reverse unless i turn off the mower and fidget with the foot pedal manually, then restart the mower. However after i do this then it stays in reverse and will not stop moving unless i hold down the brake.

Question

My mower bought at Home Depot will not start Model 936053 Serial #052412A017951

Mower bought 11/27/12 at sore near McDonough will not start. The battery was replaced also the parts ARI 21546574, 21546319, 21546294 and 21546196. So three switch sensors and a new solenoid did not solve the problem. Jumping across terminals at the solenoid will crank the motor. So it is not the starter. Also all electric connections were checked and cleaned. Need help, no local service available.

I am sorry to hear that you are having some issues with the electrical on the mower. I would recommend running some tests and see what the voltage is going to the solenoid and then coming off the solenoid. You can also check each switch to see if you have a switch that is not activating correctly or if you have a short in the wire.

look up the model code from your craftsman... you can google the manufacturer on-line...or...make it easy- look under your craftsman's seat and see if it has a Husqvarna manufacturers label on it... if it does- my bet is that they'll fit- as long as theyre 42-46 " machines...

To register new equipment, follow these steps:

To retrieve the Model and Serial numbers from the machine, be sure to pull them off the Model and Serial Number Decal/Tag. Most often these decals are located on the machine's main frame.

There may be other labels/decals that contain other numbers, and not the Model and Serial Numbers. ONLY the Model/Serial Number Decal/Tag lists the Model and Serial Numbers needed for proper identification of your machine.

Locate the Model and Serial Number Decal/Tag on the machine. For help finding a specific Model and Serial Number Decal/Tag, follow this link: How to Identify Model and Serial Numbers.

Both the model and serial numbers will be found on the same decal/tag. Please make note of both numbers. Model Numbers are 6 digits long and begin with the number "9”.

Complete the online Registration Form.
Go to the website www.ariens.com and click on Support then Registration.

I am sorry to hear that you are having an issue. This sounds like it could be one of several things. I would first make sure the air filter is clean if it is not it should be replaced. The second thing could be the choke plate is closing properly. If it is not this will need to be adjusted. If both of these things have been done and you are still experiencing the issue then I would suggest cleaning the carburetor. If you don't have the tools needed for a proper carburetor cleaning you may want to contact a servicing dealer.

I ran into this issue after I let gas sit in my mower over the winter. I ended up replacing the spark plugs and the fuel filter and it worked just fine. I also realized that I wasn't giving it enough gas (put the choke all the way to the bunny until it kicks over, then back down to run). These are all the result of user error. This was the first riding mower I have ever had to maintain. I didn't do a great job the first year I had it.
