You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

If you can, check the flywheel key. If it is bent but not quite broken, it can cause slow operation. To do that, take the starter off the top of mower. Take off the big nut on the flywheel. Find a nut of the same size and place on the thread you took the nut off, but only a few turns. Hold the flywheel with one hand, lifting a little, and tap the nut with a hammer with the other hand. The flywheel should come off. Look at the key, it holds the flywheel to the shaft. If it is bent or broken, that is the problem. Replace it and go about your day! Good luck...Lee

Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

I had the same problem, Tilt the lawnmower on it's side air filter facing up and remove air filter cover and air filter then remove the fuel bowl underneath the carb; then clean the fuel bowl with some gas and a clean rag. For the next step be sure to aim blower tip at target then look away before pressing trigger, this will prevent gasoline form getting into your eyes.Take an air compressor and carefully clean out the carb where the flap is and the tube where the fuel float that would rest inside fuel bowl is. Leave on side install everything back except for air filter and cover. Then pour a little gas in the carb to prime it, lay the lawnmower back on all 4 wheels and try to start.
