On most of the ones I've seen the kill switch just grounds out the spark, killing the engine. Make sure that for some reason the kill switch isant remaining grounded out.

i have never heard of it not shutting down when the plug cap is pulled.... but clean your carb.... its probably just a stuck float or something really easy to do

Pull Cord Stops...


could be valve needs set. if it isn't opening at the right time it wont release compression for it to start. it may be the shear key in the flywheel has sheared if you have hit something like a big rock or log or something causing it to die suddenly.

pull the plug, plug into wire, touch head of plug to metal on engine. hold by rubber boot while touching pull starter, see if you get a spark across the plug gap, its small but you can see it. if no spark check switch. if plenty of spark clean fuel system and check primer

2001 fxdwg wont start ...wut are some solutions


Check for spark, fuel. Is the kill switch in the run position?
If you have spark spray a tiny bit of starter fluid into the carb and it should hit.
If it does hit you have a fuel problem

Wont start


The shear key may be compromised or the air filter is clogged shut. if you hit something with the mower (it doesn't take much) the shear key may get distorted which changes the timing enough to make it hard or impossible to start, it can drive you crazy but a .79 part will ruin you whole weekend.

Stalled out does not seem to get spark


First, you must find out if your getting spark or not. Remove plug, and ground it to the motor and pull cord, see if your getting spark. If you are, then your problem is your not getting fuel. If your not getting spark there are a couple of things that can cause this. !st, defective spark plug, Second, cable from control handle to engine may have stretched and is not releasing the kill switch. Disconnect the kill switch wire and check to see if you have spark, if you have spark, replace engine control cable. If with kill switch wire disconnected you still have no spark, you would have a defective magnito coil, which is rare, but does happen. This engine control cable kills the spark when you release the handle and also is the engine brake, It serves two functions.

I have a Toro GT 5 6.5 hp Tecumseh model #Lev 120 and it just quit. Checked everything. Good fire,turns over good but have a kickback while it's cranking. Everything else is working. Is there a wire...


Sounds like the blade hit something solid when it was running & then it had problems soon thereafter. It may have sheared the flywheel key & is not firing at about 7 degrees before (TDC) top dead center. Pull out the plug & put your thumb tightly over the spark plug hole to feel for compression as you slowly rotate the blade or pull on the starter cord. About 7 degrees before TDC is when you should get a spark. Maybe you can download a repair manual for it or have a friendly repair shop tell you when it is supposed to fire the plug.You may have to pull off the shroud over the pull cord/flywheel to see where the magnets are at TDC. I had this happen to my Lawn Boy after my grand son used the mower. A $3.00 new key solved the problem BUT it was a pain to take the top covers off. apart
