Getting a mower out of its winter slumber takes some time. Start with fresh gas, new oil, and air filter. Sometimes carbs get gummed up(varnisized gas). Donyboy73 on youtube shows how to remove Briggs n Stratton in tank carb systems and clean the parts and passages.

Low hydraulic fluid will not prevent starting. The fuel filter shouldn't necessarily be full of fuel but if its empty my indicate lack of fuel flow. Look for debris in the fuel tank. A long skinny screw driver with a dab of grease on the end can be used to retrieve debris from bottom of tank. Remove the fuel line from the tank side of the filter and check for fuel flow. Blow into the line back into the tank then check for fuel flow. If it starts flowing then you will likely find a piece of debris in the tank. Reconnect the fuel line to the filter and remove from carb and be sure fuel is getting to carb.
If unit wont turn over. Check battery voltage: 12.6 volts or better. Be sure pto is off, unit is in neutral, and brake pedal is depressed. Check the fuse. Then with a test light check for 12 volts on the yellow or white wire on the small post of the starter solenoid with key in start position. If you have voltage to the solenoid but not to the starter then either the solenoid has a bad ground or is faulty and should be replaced. If no voltage to solenoid then you have a bad wire or switch between the fuse and solenoid. Voltage travels from fuse to ignition switch to pto switch to brake switch (to seat switch if it has four wire plug) to starter solenoid. You can use a test light to chase down where voltage stops.

Toro Mower wont stay running


The main reason why a mower starts up and then cuts off after a short period of time is because of poor air flow to the carburetor and is most likely a blockage somewhere.

First you should try this. Remove gas cap and filter then place a really thick rag over the top of the carb where the filter was and either blow into the gas tank or wrap a rag around a tapered air chuck and then place the air chuck in the gas tank (with rag fitting snug around chuck) blast it a few times and listen for bubbling, if it's bubbles then you have removed the blockage..
Take the carb off of the mower and clean the carb / jets with a thin piece of wire.
Be sure to clean the gas tank completely and the fuel line.
Check the oil level, some mowers have a low-level oil shut off.
Change the plug out with one thst is reccomended for your engine.
I wouldn't reccomend running the mower without the filter, that causes dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and tank.

This should fix the problem, if it don't you should find a lawn mower repair service.

I hope this helps.

I have a Honda HRR216TDA lawn mower that starts and then stops and wont stay running i have replaced the spark plug and drained the fuel tank and checked all of the lines. Could the problem be a clogged...


More along the lines of a dirty carb. Replacements run about $32 online, sometimes less. If you know what your doing, remove the carb, pull the bowl and spray clean it with carb cleaner. You will see a small plastic screw on the side of the carb holding down a black plastic piece, remove the screw and pull the plug - spray that clean also. Recommend replacing all gaskets when reinstalling the carb.

I have a Craftman 675 gold series mower set over the winter. I changed the spark plu, Filter, and gas. I cant seem to figure out why my mower wont stay running. Have any suggestions?


Hi bencasey48...

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your carburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.

NOTE: Before you dissemble the carburetor:
Make sure you mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you dissemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.

Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Also check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
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.
When you remove your fuel line/s from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the line/s are connected to the carburetor.
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 couple of years 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.
I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
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 (if you have one) 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 original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.

check your oil is it up to full, then I would check to see if you have compresson, pull your plug and roll over and feel with finger ,but don't touch spark plug wire or you will light up! next I would check for spark, then for fuel, make sure the carb is getting fuel,,,check your hoses and fuel cap and clean your carb and needle/seat and make sure gas will run through the fuel line. Also you could have sheared a flywheel key

the choke out you are talking about could of been a lean condition and smoked the eng rings
Good Luck compresson test should tell all 2StrokeJim

Open the air adjustment screw a bit more. There's usually plastic piece that stops you from opening it up. I always break off the plastic.(damn engineers) It's not getting enough gas.
