This is not always the case but on Briggs and Stratton it may be time to check the valves for adjusting. Take off the cover and check for a gap of .005 .

In my shop I see this all the time . If all electrical checks out try this next

Briggs & Stratton engines typically take 48 ounces of SAE 30 oil.
Kohler engines typically take 64 ounces (2 quarts) of 10w30 oil.
Always refer to the dipstick to ensure proper amount is added and do not over fill.

Go to... http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action Enter the model number that is under the seat. If it's a lawn tractor, it will start with 917. That will get you to all the diagrams of the mower.
