SOURCE: 6 yr old mower starts, won't run

sounds like a plugged high speed jet in carb - you can attempt to prime again , push at least 7-8 times - once it fires continue to push primer to keep running - it may clear out the carb if this doesnt work the carb will need to be removed and cleaned

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.

From what you describe it sounds like the line may be tangled, remove the rewind housing in order to inspect the line up close.

There could well be a build up of sediment and debris in the main jet to the carburetor. It is easy to get to and clean. It is the brass bolt that holds the lower float bowl onto the main body of the carburetor. To clean it, drain your gas. Remove the bolt and external washer UNDER the carburetor bowl. Clean out the bowl of any sediment and/or water. To clean the brass bolt, use no metal objects. Carb/Choke aerosol spray cleaner will do the job. Pay close attention to the hole in the bottom of the bolt and the very small holes about 2/3 of the way up the bolt. Clean till shiny with holes cleared and reinstall. Your fuel flow problem and shut off condition may be solved.

SOURCE: Starter rope on walk behind mower is hard to pull

Pull the spark plug out and give it a pull. It should pull VERY easily. You could have a vapor lock inside the cylinder and this will clear it. If it still doesn't pull easily with the plug removed then you've probably either bent the crank shaft or seized the engine, due to a lack of oil in it. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

Based on you question, this could be anything (like going to your Dr. and telling him "I'm sick"). That being said, if it just sat with gas in it, then it's likely a fuel problem (ie; plugged carburetor). These machines do not like the new Ethanol Gas and they cannot be left to sit or they'll gum up on you. An engine needs three things in order to start and run. 1. Spark 2. Fuel 3. Compression. First check your spark; if there is no spark, it'll never start. If there is spark, then I recommend a good carb cleaning. Better left to a professional if you're not familiar with this procedure. I hope this gets you started in the right direction. Best of luck to you. (You can find "how-to" videos on all these procedures by searching on YouTube)

My son has a self propelled lawnmower by Yard Machine (by mtd) 158cc 5.5 serial 1010295484595 and it has been used only one time. It starts but will not idle or stay running..what could the problem be?...


Are you saying that this mower is Brand New??? If so then take it back to where you bought it. If it's used / old, then you have the number one problem with used / old mowers. The carburetor needs a good cleaning or a rebuild, depending on the condition of it when it's dis-assembled. If you don't know carbs, then take it to a professional and have it done $30-$40 USD). I refurbish old mowers that people throw away because thet do not run and 90 percent of the time, a thorough carb job will bring them back to full life. Best of luck to you

My mower starts and stays running for about 5 seconds then quits..has gas and oil any clues


Check gas line. Check for a gas filter and replace it. Replace spark plug. If the prob continues - it might need the carb rebuilt.. If a small engine sits to long without being run - the gas will shellac in the carb and render it to not function properly..

have a great day !

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

MTD Yardman push mower runs fine for awhile then cuts off.


Try buying a new plug first but if it continues then I would say that there is debris in the carb.
