Briggs and stratton 35 classic wont start, what can i do?

take the plug lead off and hold it near to some metal part on the mower, move the throttle lever to around midway and pull the mower cord, if there is a spark the electrical part of the mower is working.
remove the plug, put the lead back on the plug and earth the plug on a metal area and pull the cord again, if there is spark across the points on the plug then the plug is ok, if not replace the plug and try again.
assuming that the plug and lead checks out fine then check the fuel supply, remove the air filter from the side of the carbi and spray some fuel directly into the throat of the carbi and pull the starter cord, if the engine runs for a few seconds you can assume that you have a fuel problem, possibly the filter inside the fuel tank is clogged.

Type your problem for a solution...mowing for 10 minintes stoped to ceck blades started mower blue smokeout exhust. stoped mower checked oil will not start checked plug ,filter carbie and control lever

to check blade you tilted the mower and got oil where it should not be.
exhaust will clear out, check all controls to see if the spark is still there, allso a compression test check out a lot of problems. if it is low ,under 60 ,
just check the basic the three things needed to run- compression,spark,and fuel. always check things with the spark plug wire pulled of the spark plug. good luck

Hi just got a 13.5 briggs do i have to power up the grey wire from the carby cheers john

Yes. It should get power when you turn the key to run, this lets fuel into the carby. When you turn the key to 'off ', it cuts the fuel off. The black wire in the same plug (on the other side of the engine near the starter motor) goes to the coil and is the engine kill wire which is connected to the ignition key switch and gets earthed out when you turn the key to 'off '. Dont make the same mistake I made and have it connected to earth all the time, the engine wont go at all! Aussie Steve.

No spark

Specifics on engine needed, brand, model, type, code, serial numbers. Thanks, rwvanlue
try the things below to see if they help

1) How have you determined that there is no spark?
2) Have you used a type of spark tester?
3) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.

*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug,
it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel
cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!
Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

Brand new Pope Spitfire 40 lawnmower won't start

Drain the fuel completely if it is older than 1 week. Make sure you undo the bolt at the bottom of the fuel bowl to ensure all old fuel is drained. Refill with fresh fuel (premium unleaded) and try again. If it still does not work then remove the spark plug and rest it on the metal of the mower while still attached to the silicone ignition wire. Have someone hold the cut out bar to the handle (as you normally would to run the motor) and pull the cord. You should see sparks being emitted from the spark plug. (Make sure there is no fuel nearby) If you cannot see any sparks then replace the spark plug with a new one and repeat this process. If you still cannot see any sparks being emitted after attatching the new plug to the silicone wire, resting it on the metal of the mower, and pulling the cord to start it as you normally would, the mower will need to have the resistor and capacitor checked by a professional repairer as no spark is being generated.

Good luck.

Victa 2 stroke mower will not start

It may have a blown crankcase seal. How did you check the plug for spark?
you can remove the carbi and spray 2 stroke fuel directly into the chamber and try to start it.
If it starts you have a problem with the carbi or the fuel supply.
Take out the air filter as it may be blocked and restricting the air supply.
The float in the carbi may be full of fuel due to a hole in it or the fine fuel filter in the carbi may be blocked
