Disconnect small wire at ignition module. Then check for spark. If no spark, replace ignition module. If there is spark, then there is a short in the kill wire or engine control cable is not adjusted correctly.

May be a blockage in the carburetor. If it's a briggs motor or tecumseh motor on it, check the flywheel key. On a briggs if the key is sheared you'll have no spark at all. If it's a Tecumseh and the key is sheared, you'll probably have spark, but this throws the timing off and could possible show signs of wanting to start, but may be pulling the pull cord handle out of your hand when it tries to catch. Be very careful of this. Tecumseh will give you a spark but if the key is sheared then it'll be the timing. Also, check the brake band on the flywheel and make sure the ground wire isn't off or shorted. Good luck.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.

Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, 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.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also 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.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

If you replaced the plug and still dont have any spark you probably need a new coil. If you do it yourself and find the coil on Ebay or a good onliine parts seller you could do it for a reasonable price.

I am strictly Briggs&Stratton. They are hard to start when the fuel tank is half empty. Clean the plug and air filter.

Why will Ariens lawn mower starter engine not turn over?


These machines have carb and coil issues. Check for fire. Nice when new, but once a little age creeps in, the engines just aren't that sturdy. Sorry, but as a small equipment mechanic, I don't recommend Lawn Boy. Next time, buy another brand.

Briggs stratton model 100000 sart problem ?


If you are having problems starting your mower you should check 3 things, air, fuel and spark.

Fuel: check to make sure you are full of good quality fuel, try to start the engine several times then take out the spark plug and it should look wet. If its not wet then you aren't getting fuel into the engine.

Air: remove and clean the air filter with clean gasoline if its made of foam. If its made of paper then you should buy a new one from a local auto parts or hardware store.

Spark: disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold the wire close to the engine block. Try to start the engine and watch for a spark to jump between the end of the wire and the engine block. If it doesn't then either the wire is bad or the ignition coil is bad.

Reply to this solution when you find the problem and I can tell you how to solve it.

Won't start. Mower was in storage and unused for 2 yrs. Replaced spark plug. Still won't start.


IF you are turning it over and getting spark then your not getting fuel
2 year old gas can turn to sludge plugging the filter in the gas tank clean the tank out - blow the fuel line from the carb. back to the tank- use fresh gas she should run

I have a gas Yard Machine Lawn Mower by Briggs and Stratton. I cannot keep it running and it is loosing oil. What do I need to do?


May be time for a tune up. Replace spark plug, air filter, change oil and sharpen blade. You may have some water in your gas. I would check to see where it is leaking oil. It may be the oil seal on the pto(bottom) side of the engine leaking and needs to be replaced.
