Cub Cadet LT1050 won't start


I was mowing up leaves today for about 45 minutes. When I went to empty my clippings I couldn't get my mower (CC LT1050 about 8 years old with 25 hours) to start back up. A couple weeks ago I changed the spark plugs, gas filter, and added fuel stabilizer to my fuel but have used the mower once before today with no problems. II tried charging the battery today, changed the air filter put still nothing. The engine cranks, but doesn't turn over. I used my inline spark tester and am getting spark.

Don't think it's a fuel problem since I was just using it 5 minutes before.

Anyone have any ideas on what else I can try??

You need to verify it is getting fuel.

Did you check the kill switch under the seat. Sometimes they come loose and will prevent you from starting the mower.
Also did you disengage the blades when you shut the mower off?

If you want to see if it is the fuel, spray some starter fluid in the carb. If it starts with that, you know you have a fuel problem.
