Hi, first thing you have got to do is check for a spark at the plug.
Replace plug with a new one & see is there any spark.
If not check all isolater switchs around the clutch/brake , mower deck, & seat.
Also may do no harm to bleed the fuel on the carberter bowl just in case it is full of water.

I'm assuming you have a Tecumseh engine on there. But a Briggs would be the same. This is straight from Tecumseh, though (long story short is run 5W30 Oil or 0W30 Synthetic in it assuming winter temperatures:

Mtd 22" yard machine staryts and dies using prospray.


Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Yard machine mtd 123cc mower stalls after starting it runs for a few seconds and then stalls. Previous to this it only ran on choke but when you took the chock off it stalled also. Now it stalls even when...


dirty gas. the fuel bowl likely has junk in it which plugs the jets as soon as it starts. you may get luck just emptying the carb bowl but a good carb clean and new gas will do the trick. (dump out the old gas
