john deere lx255 riding mower wont start

I have been experiencing problems lately. it craked great and would run for 40 min and then die. two hours later it would fire up and go again. we changed the air filter the other night and then, while it was running, my brother sprayed a cleaner on the entire enging( to remove dirt and dust) and as it ran, he hosed it off..... 2 days later, i go to mow and Now i cant get it too sart and it just turns and turns.... Any advice

Just follow the thread just down from this one by indyhoov on "To much Sea Foam". Post back with the results of your testing and we'll get you going. If you know what engine you have post that back right away.

Hi spenmike2003 and welcome to the forum,

You say you got no suggestions, but marbobj already made a suggestion and we are kind of waiting for your reply. What have you already checked? Does it have spark?

What kind of cleaner did he spray on and did he spray it on with a pressure washer? Did he "hose it off" with a pressure washer? Might have water in all sorts of places it doesn't belong causing electrical shorts, or displacing fuel.
