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 rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this helped

SOURCE: I have a MTD Honda Lawnmower that is having idling

Generally this indicates a "lean" condition in the carburetor and there are no adjustments. Depending on your abilities, the best fix is to remove the carburetor and clean all the metering passages/jets. In some cases you are better off just replacing the carburetor. I have seen some Honda carbs. as low as $15-$20. Hope this helps to some degree.

You probably have dirt in the carburetor. Or, you may have water in the fuel. As long as you have spark, then there is nothing else that it could be. Unless you have taken it apart already; have you done this?

Where is the choke on a Brigg-stration model 580-752920 engine?


Hello,
This particular model is called a readystart engine, they do NOT have a primer or choke, if you are having fuel troubles starting there could be a blockage in the carburettor or fuel filter.

Hope this helps

after trying to start it a bunch of times, take spark plug out and see if it's wet with gas.

My 3 year old Yard Machine 139cc started (choke out), but then began running excessively fast after pushing the choke back in. A few weeks later, it still started (choke out) but now ran very fast even...


Check the carburetor see if all the bolts are tight.check the cylinder head gasket take off plug wire make sure it is away from plug so it wont start. Pull start rope can you hear air being pulled into the engine? if so the head gasket has ruptured or head bolts came lose. Ensure all parts are tight. Ensure fuel lines are not clogged. Check fuel level.

Is there a choke setting and throttle setting for best results in getting the MTD yarde amchine started?


Most of the small outdoor power equipment that I have used takes the following to start:

1. Prime 6-8 times, or whatever the manual calls for.

2. Choke the carb to full choke.

3. Pull starter rope. It may sputter and die.

4. After it sputters and dies, put the choke on 1/2. Pull a time or 2 more and should start. Run like that 10 seconds or so, then take choke all the way off.

Tiller won't stay running


If you choke or prime the engine, it starts up for a second or two and dies, the carburetor need to be cleaned/repaired.
