  • When not using the riding lawn mower, start it once a month.
  • Ensure that the spark plug wire has a good connection to the spark plug
  • Always use the proper fuel as specified by the manufacturer
  • Starting the riding lawn mower keepsĀ  stabilized fuel in the fuel system.
  • Change the spark plug every two years or at the very least clean it every year.
  • Check air filter and clean it every season unless you are in very dusty conditions. Then check and clean it every month.

Following these basic steps will go a long way to making it much easier to start your riding lawn mower easily every time.
