    Mfg does not show safety switches locations and troubleshooting of switches on snapper mowers

    • Chris says:

      Unplug the switch and test switch with an ohm meter. If there is little resistance when the switch us engaged, then it is good. If not, then it’s bad.

    how do you change the drive wheels??

    • Chris says:

      Purchase replacement wheels. Remove the axle bolt on each wheel and install bolt 9n new wheel. Be sure to replace any washers that were on the old wheel in the same places on the new wheels.

    I put on a new factory drive belt and it needs to be tensioned. I have Snapper model 281022BE and can’t figure how to tighten belt which has almost two inches of play after engaging drive.

    SNAPPER riding rear motor mower, starts and runs great until you release the clutch/brake petal
    engine then dies. Transmission can be in any gear including neutral. Seems to be electrical.
    Tested clutch switch both relays.

      I have the same problem I end up un plugging the sensor under the mower by the brake towards the rear and jumping out the green and white wires at the plug and it runs great. I hope this help. I replaces the plug and that did not fix it but at lease it will work for now

    I have a Snapper with a Briggs and Stratton engine. Until recently I have had no problems with it. However, after it sitting for a couple months i tried starting it and the rope jerked about half way through the pull. It caught my left hand and left quite a bruise. Any idea what might have caused that to happen? I thought maybe it had something to do with the choke. So far I haven’t been able to get it started. Every couple of pulls and it jerks back. Thanks.
