Carb is most likely clogged from when the gas you had in it before gummed up. Take some carb cleaner and clean the heck out of the carb and everything will work just fine after that. I also recommend letting the carb cleaner sit for about 30 minutes before trying to start the machine

SOURCE: Lawn mower will not stay cranked unless you keep pouring gas into

common problems to all older lawnmower, lots of dirt and dust the mower goes through and ages. I would first start by taking the carb apart and clean the filter with soap and water, allow it to air dry. also carburetor prob need rebuilding or replacing. Pick up some Carburetor cleaner at any auto part store and spay it down the carb, dont be afraid to spray allot in there and let it dry for 1/2 and hours. carb tend wear and parts need replacing just like any engines. 99% of the time lawn mower carb goes out before the engine will and common problems with all lawn mower. If you not mechanical incline or dont want to rebuilt it, just buy the whole new carb and replace it, fairly cheap easy to replace and will last you another 10 + years or more. www.briggsandstratton.com

SOURCE: Snapper riding lawn mower will not start

If you have good spark and the carb is clean what kind of shape is the fuel in your mower?

You might want to empty the fuel system out completely and let it dry out to remove any water that may have accumulated in the tank.

Have you tried putting a splash of fuel into the carb and trying to start it?

If it starts on a splash of fuel you still might have a blocked main jet or stuck fuel float.

Remove the old fuel from the tank. Change the gas filter if there is one. Get a can of spray carburetor cleaner and a can/bottle of fuel line cleaner. Spray carburetor cleaner in the carburetor where you put the gas ( remove the air cleaner) . Pour the fuel line cleaner in the gas tank with fresh gas and try to start the mower. Spary some carbuerator cleaner in the carburetor and try to start the mower a few times.

The riding mower has been used in June. Now when I try to start it I cant. I have checked the battery, gas, etc. before trying to start it. What can I do now?Thanks


put gas right into the carburetor and see what happens. if it doesn't do anything then you have a spark issue, if it runs until the gas you just put in runs out then it is a carb issue. sometimes just priming the carb with gas will get it to run again too

Smokes a lot on starting runs for 2 min. then stalls


check oil level. See if it's high. sometimes when carburetors start to go bad, they let gas flow into the carburetor throat that ends up in the cylinder and down into the crankcase. does the oil smell like gas?

Try looking at the screw that holds the bowl in place, sometimes they have a little orifice on them that gets clogged and hinder fuel from reaching carb. Use a small pin or small gauge wire to clean. Good Luck...

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor 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 rate me,
Thanks
Good Luck,
I hope this helped

How do you get to the carburetor in a Yard Man


Take off the air cleaner an pour in a tablespoon of gas, if it runs for a couple seconds, then you have a carburetor problem. If not, maybe spark plug problem.
