    it was running fine. i jacked it up to change the blades, then put it back down started the engine and it tried to start over then it started. The fuses look fine, are there anyother fused onthe mower besides the 3 onthe gas tank. I will change the fuses on there and try that but what else could it be. There is under 200 hrs on this machine what can wear out.

    thanks.

    The 3 fuses in the panel on the gas tank are all there is.
    It sounds like the fuel may have ran out of the fuel bowl when you had it jacked up.
    Make sure you are getting fuel to the carburetor, check your fuel filter.
    You can call our service department also, 1-800-395-4757 M-F 9 am to 6 pm eastern time.

    Hope this helps.

    i got the mower working. I will post it just in case this happens to others. Check your battery! It can get some pretty thick stuff on it and corrode the termnals. The cable was loose and it had corrosion inbetween the cable and post. I hope this helps someone out some day. Thanks.
