Why not remove the carb. and clean it out? If it was "sitting awhile" the fuel has died and needs to be drained and renewed. You might have to dismantle the carb. and blow out the jets with compressed air. Don`t touch the OHV (over head valve) cover.

The engin will start and turn off. Then will not turn on at all.

Im not sure if your saying it wont restart or not even turn over. If it wont start but turns over it sounds like the carborator float may be sticking and flooding out the motor. If this is the case normally after leaving it sit awhile it will drain down and you will be able to restart mower. If your not a do it yourselfer a small engine mechanic would be able to take the carborater apart and clean the jets and or replace a float that may have gotten a pin hole in it. You could try spraying in a small amount of carb cleaner in carb when running to see if it cleans jets.

Bike running rough at lower revs

If the bike sat without being used over the winter It could be bad gas. if gas sits without being used for an extended period of time it destabilizes and gums up carborators and fuel injectors, you need to add a fuel stabilizer to gas when storing for winter. To fix the problem the gas has to be drained from tank, then refil with fresh gas and appropriate amount of carborator/fuel injector cleaner/treatment. Then start the bike and let it run it should clean itself out and start running smooth. If bike did not sit unused for winter its possible they installed the wrong plugs sometimes they talk you into spending more money on platinum or split fire/gimmick plugs (always use the exact same plug that came in the bike when it was new!!!!!)

1999 Mercedes C280 dies without warning and then starts after vehicle sits. At least that is what it did. Now it won't start at all. It started when I would start the vehicle and it would idle rough...

If you have a carborator it is shot - If it is fuel injected than you have need to have your heads cleaned or replaced. If it doesn't turn over at all I would start with your starter. Your distributor can also cause this as well - I had to replace all of the above, minus the carborator and it fixed my problem - Was like a new car afterward.
