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.

I think that this is a 4stroke engine and runs on neat petrol.Have you been putting oil in with the petrol like a 2 stroke engine needs because this would account for the smoking.If not the check that you havn't overfilled the gearbox oil.

SOURCE: Mower won't start, pull cord now locked up

when you say it's full of oil you don't mean it's all the way to the top of the dipstick. because if that is the caes you will have to drain most of the oil out until the oil o nly goes to the full mark on the dipstick.that would explain why you can't pull on the starter rope there is no where for the internal parts to move to it's being blocked by all the oil...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 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, 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

Masport 4 stroke mower...started it up and it worked for a couple minutes with a strange rattling growling noise.. Oil ok and petrol filled but the mower just shut it's self down and im not sure w


It will run for a few minutes and then shut down?
Lets ignore the growl for now. Loosen Gas cap and see if it will keep running. The rattle might be in the pull cord mechanism..possibly not related to stalling issue

I changed the blade, and now it won't start!


Did you replace the blade with a heavier blade, or an identical one? If the pull cord won't pull, it's usually either the blade or the blade shaft causing the problem. Try oiling the shaft and making sure nothing is obstructing the blade from turning.

If you have a pair of heavy gloves, try turning the blade by hand and see if it moves. Squirt some oil onto the shaft where it meets the mower and try turning it again.

Mower suddenly shut off and engine starting smoking. Now it won't do anything. seems to be locked up. Sears craftsman riding mower only 1 and a half years old. has oil and gas.


About the first thing I would do is to pull the plug lead(s), tilt the mower up (resting it on something solid) and see if the motor shaft could be turned at all. I suspect you initial thought that it is locked up is correct.

Walk behind craftsman lawn mower. starts but shuts off after 15 minutes then will restart after it sits for 10 or 20 minutes


not sure what model but it sounds like it runs hot? make sure the fuel/oil mixture is correct, exhaust is not clogged, sparkplug is in good condition. hope this helps.
