Mower Problems

my husqvarna yth 18542 mower died while running and made a weird clicking noise. Now it won’t start it does turn over but makes a weird noise. I have no idea on what the problem is.

Can you give us a little more description about the weird noise. Does it want to start? In other words does it sound like the gas is being combusted for a second. Or do you just get clicking noise when you turn the key. Does the engine turn over but no sound of starting? Did you try using starting fluid directed into the carburetor then try starting?

The mower does turn over but doesn’t sound like it normally does, it also backfires. It makes a wired cranking noise when you turn key.

Sounds like a valve hung open.
