Hello PANDJ4952, Check your oil level first. If low or a dark color it needs changing. I suggest you change spark plug and air filter too. With the engine cold clean the fins around the spark plug location of caked up mud or clogs of grass including under the mower where the blade rotates. Please let me know of the results.

Can you run your lawn boy mowers without the primer button being used?


Yes you can. The only reason small engines have the primer button/bulb is to get gas to the carburator to make it easier to start it. If your mower starts OK without using the primer bulb you will not harm the mower.

Lawn boy 2 cycle mower won't start


Replace the spark plug and retry.
If a new plug does not work push the spring button on the bottom of the carburetor to make sure fresh fuel is in the fuel bowl.
if this does not work remove the spark plug and squirt some light oil (like wd 40) right into the spark plug hole; roll the engine over slowly a couple times using the starter rope. put the plug back in and snap the plug wire in place. If the mower now starts after a couple pulls it means the rings are worn, replace the rings.

My Briggs & Stratton Quantum 65 starts perfectly from cold but refuses to re-start when hot. Any ideas?


Do a compression check when cold, then again when hot. Sounds like when its hot your losing compression. If this is the case, it won't want to start when hot. Compression should be above 60 lbs. Thats where i would start. I hope this is of some help to you.

Hi, My 6.25 HP Lawn Boy mower has been very reliable and has always started after a couple of primers and 2-3 pulls. It is not starting this week. Do you have any suggestions?


take air filter off and give it a shot of starter fluid, if it starts, you have a carberator problem. if it dose not start, check the spark plug.

I need to know how to adjust the carbureator on an tecumseh lawn mower model number 143.954500


If it has a float type carb, open it 1.5 turns. If it has a diaphram open it one turn. If it has a Walbro carb, there is no adjustment. Once you get the engine started you may adjust the carb to fine tune. Open until it begins to lose RPM's then close until it starts to lose RPM's. Return to a point between the two. Good luck...Lee

Engine will not start, no spark


Try taking of the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Then check the spark plug wire for rust (clean if any). Try replacing the spark plug if it is old.

Let me know if this helps.
