SOURCE: won't stay running

The carbeurator needs to be cleaned and probably rebuilt. Start with a spray carb cleaner by putting 3 or 4 shots in the carb. Run it for a minute then let it sit for two hours and run it again.

SOURCE: My Mower won't start.

the problem is that your carbeurator is gummed from from sitting idle all winter with gas in it. Get an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner, remove the air filter and give the air intake two squirts of carb. cleaner. Then start the mower. When it stalls again let it sit for an hour while the carbeurator cleaner works at dissolving some of that gum. Repeat the process until the mower runs again. Sometimes there is so much junk in the carb. that you have to remove it and soak it in cleaner for about three hours, and then rebuild the carb. with the proper little kit. hopefully you won't have to take this step.

Next fall let the mower run out of gas and stall then you won't have the gum in the carbeurator in the spring.

Check the governer, its a lever that pulls the throttle plate from the engine side. Try manually overriding it (twist it open as the engine's running) and see if that does it.

Hi islamamin200..
You have a problem with the inlet float, there is something holding it from closing totally.
When you cleaned the carburetor did you clean it with a cleaning solution such as lacquer thinner, this is used to cut the "varnish" buildup in the jets and needle valves of the carburetor.
Follow the directions below:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting fire at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting spark then:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank.
Also make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

The clicing noise is from a worn starter solenoid. You can test the starter to see if good by touching the battery wire connected to the starter to the batteries positive side. That will make the starter to run

What causes a Craftsman 24" Snow Thrower not to start.


If you take the recoil housing off you probably will find a mouse nest by the flywheel and that will cause the engine not to turn. You have to clean all the debree out of there and then it should turn.

Mower under flood water for 2 days.


Hi Steve.You will need to get under the starter pully and rub the spark generator with some glass paper and WD40. No doubt the generator has gone a bit rusty due to the water.The fly wheel will need cleaning to. Also give it a warm place to stay for a few days to completely dry it out. This should be ok then.

My woods mow'n mach (1850) on an upward grade


There is a few things that I would check and might come to a solution to your issue follow this and will help diagnose your mower. Has this engine been over filled with oil?
Has the lawnmower been turned on its side to clean?
Has it ever been serviced because the carburettor diaphragm and air filter need to be changed on a yearly basis.
