How do I troubleshooting my MTD lawn tractor?
Asked Aug 6, 2006, 08:53 AM
I have one MTD lawn tractor for many years. It is a MTD 14.5/42” 7 speed model.
It stopped working during cutting the grass recently, and then I could not start this tractor any more. After then, I had replaced the new battery, new air filter, and the new spark plug. I had changed the oil only two months ago.
Now when I start the engine, there is no any sound.
I think it could be electric issue, or natural safety switches as I had to try several times to start it before when it was still working.
However, I don't know how many safety switches are on it and where they are located.
Could it be the electric starter? My tractor has one Briggs & Stratton 287707 I/C Model engine on it. If so, how do I troubleshooting it?
