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

Stopped while driving cranks but won,t start replaced spark plugs and wires old plugs smelled like gasoline


"Old plugs smelled". Likely no spark. Coil packs, distributor, points (if your car has points), etc. If you share your car make/model/year/engine, somebody might have one and know where to look. Without that info, I can only guess.

Carb adjustment and what is the correct spark plug


If the snow thrower worked last year I would suspect old fuel in the tank. Dump out the old fuel in the tank and put in fresh. Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb and try to start it. If it fires the ignition is good. Do this a few times to pull the old fuel through the carb and fuel line. When the new fuel gets through the fuel system to the engine it will stay running. The spark plug in the engine will have number on it. Get one with the same number if you want to replace it.

Snow Thrower Won't Start. I have a Sears 26" Snow Thrower Model No 247.889702. It will not start. Changed fuel, new spark plug, propoerly primed the engine, tried both pull start and electric star


does it have spark? if you can start it with starting fluid chances are the carb needs a good cleaning or replacement. fuel these days goes bad in about 2 months without stabilisers in it. gums up the tiny passages in the carbs. i suggest seafoam as a treatment but anything is better than nothing...good luck

I am getting no spark at plug. Briggs model 31c707 motor. I have charged battery, adjusted valves, verified fuel line clear. Pull spark plug put into wire hold to motor and crank (no spark)


Hello, the next couple of things to check would be under the engine lid.

  1. Remove the screen over the air fan on the top of the fly wheel.
  2. Remove the 4 bolts securing the main lid and remove. Depending on the year of this engine it may have a secondary cover that Craftsman put on that will need to be removed first.
  3. When the lid is off you will see the magneto coil right above the spark plug; just follow the spark plug wire up to it.
  4. Use a wrench to see if the magnet on the fly wheel is strong. If the magnet is bad or really weak the flywheel will need to be replaced.
  5. Next check the magneto ground out wire. It will be a small black wire on the magneto. Unplug it then crank the engine. If the engine starts plug the wire back on the magneto and if it shuts down there is a short along the wire. It should only shut down or short out when the key is shut off. You will need to find the short if this is the problem.
  6. If the magnet is strong and the above test still fails to provide a spark then it is likely that the magneto is bad. You will need the rest of the model number; it will look something like: 31c707- # # # # - # # The part runs somewhere around $35.00 from Sears, but you might find it on-line cheaper.
  7. Replacing the magneto is pretty straight forward from there.
  8. Remove the old one and replace the old one adjusting it as far away from the flywheel as possible.
  9. Turn the flywheel until the magnet is directly across from the magneto.
  10. Put an ordinary business card between the magneto & the flywheel.
  11. Loosen the 2 screws that hold the magneto in place just enough for it to tighten up to hold the business card in place.
  12. Tighten the screws holding the magneto & rotate the flywheel to remove the business card.
  13. Test rotate the flywheel by hand a couple of full turns to ensure there is no contact with the magneto.
  14. Replace the small black wire, spark plug and spark plug wire, then test fire the engine.
  15. Shut the engine down and replace all the remaining parts in the reverse order as removed.
You should be good to go after this. If this was helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

My 16 year old son replaced a 1980s Yamaha motorcycle 175 but it will not start. Thinks maybe something is grounding out? What do you think?


Hi, is this a points ignition or cdi, does he have a spark at the plug? An engine needs three things to run, spark,fuel, and compression, was the engine from the same year and model, maybe the engine has cdi, and the bike is fitted with a points ignition setup?

Weedeater gas edger won't start!!!!!!!!!


yes, there is a spark module, but it's highly unlikely that two would have a bad module - more than likely, it is your gas mix. it must be fresh for the engine to run. the gas we have today will go bad in about a month and a half. if you happen to live in an area that has E85, forget it. small engines will not run very long, if at all on this junk. in some areas, you can get gas without alcohol, but it can only be used for lawn & garden equipment. it's expensive, but your engines will run
