Check wiring for ground. Ensure battery is fully charged or replace. Replace spark plug. Clean or replace air filter. check oil level, all mowers have a low oil start cutoff. Bad gas? Flush out fuel tank by removing gas line, flush fresh gas thru. Reattach gas line, fill with fresh gas, always use Stabile in gas! Check fuel line for cracks and secure connection to carb. Battery should read 12.8 volts or higher. .

Ran out of petrol put fresh petrol in and now it wont start


I think that your fresh fuel was full of water. I have heard that gas is usually good for about 30 days. The biggest problem is not the gas but the condensation in a gas can that is slowly getting emptied. This condensation builds up on the side of the gas can and drips down and into the gas. Pyshics makes water heavier than gas so the water will always be at the bottom, same in your mower tank, same in your mower fuel bowl.
Get a clear container and remove fuel line from the carburator, empty the fuel tank completely. Remove the bowl off the bottom of your carburator CAREFULLY so as not to damage the round gasket. Empty and wipe the bowl. Replace the clean bowl, fill with fresh gas and you will be able to proceed again. Before I wish you luck, look at the fuel you emptied into the clear container. If you see something at the bottom of all that gas, that would be your water problem. I hope this will help, GOOD LUCK.

I ran out of gas and i put gas in it and now it wont start i thought it might have froze but i have it in garage with heater now it starts but i have 2 pedal it 2 keep it running then it dies and wont...


If it ran out of gas, there are two possible easy fixes. One is that the fuel filter is plugged up by junk from the bottom of the tank. The other is that water floats on top of gas and now your lines are a mix of fuel and water. I would change the filter and put water remover in the tank. Make sure there is a least 10 gallons of fresh fuel in the truck. If neither of these work, the pump may have been damaged as it uses the fuel to keep it cool.

Bike has been sitting without being started this winter. is it ok to start or better to have it picked up and serviced


There is no reason why it cannot be started, although you may have a bit of a difficulty doing this. As a precaution replace all the gas with fresh gas and try clear the carb/injector.

After 1 season it ran great ,slowly died now it wont start


So many possibilities, so little data... <grin>

When you say "clean gas", do you mean that you added "fresh" gas, or that you emptied the tank, and refilled it with "fresh" gas?

Try this:

a. remove the "float bowl" screw, and put a regular "bowl" or pan underneath to catch ALL of the gas as it comes out.

b. if the gas is totally "clear", then it (probably ain't the gas), but... if it's "yellow", it's old and/or contaminated; alternatively, if there's any water (which may appear as a grey-ish liquid) then it's contaminated; also, don't forget to check the gas from your "storage" can, the same way...

c. re-install the the screw, and put some *FRESH* gas in the tank.

d. pull the spark-plug, and clean (or replace) it.

e. prime it, and crank it, and it should start right up.

Wont start after 6 mos. I changed the spark plug, drained & added fresh gas, checked the fuel filter... Kicks over fine. Ran for 4 seconds, then it died. Always ran & started great before.


With a new plug and fresh gas it should start. Check to make sure there isn't a kill switch turned off or that the gas petcock from the tank to the carb is on.

How did you check the fuel filter? Disconnecting it from the fuel line that goes to the carb is the best way, making sure the gas is turned on under the tank. Bleed off a little gas into a can or something just to make sure the filter isn't plugged.

The last thing I'd do is take off the air filter and spray a little starting fluid in the carb. It may start and run several times if there is old gas in there somewhere. Remember the bowl on the carb is probably still full of old gas. After some fresh fuel reaches the plug it should start and continue to run.

(You might drain the bowl on the carb of ols gas before you go any further)

Good luck!
