Check fuel system, especially clean carburetor: needle, float chamber. Gently clean air routes with compressed air. Long stand could have caused lodgements from fuel. Hope it helps. Cheers

Craftsman snowblower will not kick over

Old gas? Did you pull out the spark plug and see if you have a spark? If the gas is old, drain the tank and line to the carburator, then put in fresh gas. Never put it up for the summer with gas in it. Run it until the engines runs out of fuel, then put it away.

If there's no spark, then you have a coil issue.

Battery checks out good but scooter won't start or even try to crank. Been sitting for several months

I have this bike. This is what i would try. Charge battery, replace old fuel with fresh fuel, manual says 91 Octane. You can drain old fuel out from fuel filter line, also good to replace fuel filter and spark plug. Spark plug is accessed from small panel behind where your ankles would be while riding. Fuel filter is above kick starter. Try and kick start, note its not the power of the kick that matters, its the position of the kick mechinisim - doesn't always have to be from the very top, you have to feel it be at a point just befofre it engages then kick. and DON't give it throttle when you're starting. If 10 kicks fail. Wait for the fuel to dry out for a few minutes, easy to flood with repeat failed starts...

I ha d a similar problem, so try the following. Screw out the spark plug and check its function. If it gives spark only BEFORE and AFTER eletrical starter works (when you push+relase the starter button) it means you have a weak battery. It doesn`t have enough energy to rotate the starter and give spark at the same time.

Tw 200 starts with a push,but wont start off button.Battery OK seems like a fuel problem.please advise.

If it was fuel it would not start with a push.
I think you have a bad switch. Now you will need to have bike in Neutral. Remove button switch turn key or power switch on. Take a wire and jump a cross switch. If the bike starts replace the switch.
