Amiseybold;

First check for spark. Remove the spark plug. Leave the spark wire connected. Hold the plug against the metal of the mower engine so you have a ground and can see the gap of the electrode where the spark jumps across. Have someone pull the starter cord and verify that you have a spark. Hold it by the threads of the plug so you don't get a little spark jolt yourself.

go to an auto parts store and get a can of starter spray (it's actually ether), Remove the lawnmower spark plug and spray a little ether in the plug hole. Put the plug back and tighten it and see if it starts.
It will probably start, run for 5 or 10 seconds and then die. Repeat this procedure once or twice again and eventually it will start to draw gas from the lawnmower tank.

A seasonal tip. when you put the mower up for the winter, **** the remaining gas out of the tank, start the engine and let it run until it uses up the gas in the carburetor. This will make iot much easier to start in the spring

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please give me a rating

Sym red devil feels sluggish


Instructions
    • 1 Locate the red button on the top of the handlebars. This is called the "kill switch." When you pull it up the engine can run; when you push it down, the engine will shut off immediately.
    • 2 Pull the kill switch up.
    • 3 Turn the key to the "on" position.
    • 4 Make certain the cord running from the key is attached to the steering column. This device acts in the same manner as the kill switch - the engine will run only when it is secured.
    • 5 Pull the start cord, which looks like an enlarged lawnmower pull-cord and is generally found on the right side of the machine.
    • 6 Listen to the engine - if it starts, let it get going slowly . If it "pops" but does not continue to run, try pulling the start cord a few more times. If you do not hear the engine turn over at all, proceed to the next step.
    • 7 Find the pull tab under the right side of the handlebars. This is called the choke - it often has a circle with a diagonal line through it. The choke helps to start an engine when the weather is very cold or the machine hasn't been used in a while. When using the choke, try leaving it on only long enough to hear the engine fire a couple times, then return it to the "off" position. A choke left on too long can flood the engine.
    • 8 Place the choke in the vertical position - this is called the half choke position. Pull the start cord several times. If the engine fires up, place the choke back down to its original position and let it slowly warm up. If the engine still has trouble starting, proceed to the next step.
    • 9 Pull the choke 180 degrees from its original position - this is called the full choke. Pull the start cord until the engine sputters a couple times.
    • 10 Replace the choke to the original off position and continue to pull the cord. The engine should fire up and settle into a steady hum, ready for fun in the snow.

Wont start


Your problem may be in the kill switch. To check, spray some starting fluid into carburator directly and pull start. If it sputter runs for a few seconds then dies chances are the kill switch is choking engine trottle as a built in safety feature. If you have to hold a bar down while pulling cord, that disengages the switch. You should be able to see if cord extends. If it's kinked I would replace the entire cable. It's cheap and relatively easy, just pay attention to how you take the old one off. B&S engines are very basic and very easy to fix.

Crazy question but where is the primer button on the yard machine 139cc 21" lawn mower???????


The primer button is usually on the carburator of your machine. Most of the time on the side of the carburator , but sometimes on the front of the carburator. GOOD LUCK.

My 3 year old Yard Machine 139cc started (choke out), but then began running excessively fast after pushing the choke back in. A few weeks later, it still started (choke out) but now ran very fast even...


Check the carburetor see if all the bolts are tight.check the cylinder head gasket take off plug wire make sure it is away from plug so it wont start. Pull start rope can you hear air being pulled into the engine? if so the head gasket has ruptured or head bolts came lose. Ensure all parts are tight. Ensure fuel lines are not clogged. Check fuel level.

Does anyone know whether these Yard Machines lawnmowers take straight gasoline or mix? I cant find an onwers manual online to clarify it. To be clear I seem to have a bit of an oddball machine;...


Straight gas. Look around, and you will see where to fill the engine with regular sae 30 oil, and on lawnmowers, if you have a place to fill it with oil, you don't mix oil with the gas.

Yard machine 139cc will only run short time with choke


Check the float and the adjustment screw on the bottom of the carb. Usually if the float stays up it will continue to leak gas and also will only run on choke. Spray some carb cleaner in there and try to get rid of any debri also try changing your air filter or cleaning it
