Hi, first you'll have to change the air filter and the spark plug. now, go buy some hi octane gas. drain the old gas and put the fresh gas in. if this don't solve your problem please write again.

SOURCE: I have a lawnmower with a BSA 3.5 engine

Test for spark by placing a screwdriver into the spark plug wire and holding it close to a bolt on the engine. should see a spark (blue). If not, problem is likely the armature (coil). The coil is located under the engine shroud and held in place by two bolts. If you replace this part, (normally $30 to $40) you must ensure a proper air gap. Auto parts stores have inexpensive repair manuals to help.

SOURCE: lawnmower wont start

Are you getting spark first of all. If you are getting spark do you have good gas? If you have good gas most likely your carb needs some attention maybe you had some old gas sitting in there and something inside is gummed up it might need cleaning.

Sprayed down lawnmower with water, now it won't start. I decided to "wash" the lawnmower last week and now it won't start. And the really weird part is the solenoid clicks every minute...


Engine will not run with no spark or a weak spark. Continuity test will only reveal that the winding is not open, not if you are producing a weak spark that will not jump the spark plug gap.

Will not start. Been sitting since 1980.


hi, the cylinders are dry of petrol fumes and you need a (good battery), if all the mehanical parts (working fuel pump and clean fuel filter) o.k. and the spark plugs are clean and the (spark plug timming leads) are correct and points are set and the (ignition coil) is o.k. this engine should start. (if not) take off the air filter and check it is clean, leve the air filter off and put a very small amount (egg cup full) of clean petrol into port the carberreter (it will not start straight away because the plugs may be wet) or wrong (timming leads) if it splutters problebly not enough petrol or ignition faults (electrical points contacts dirty) all cars need metered fuel and air to run. wish you luck gerry

Electrical problem with my 1999 Scotts Riding Lawnmower


If the motor is trying to start but won't try removing the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel and the two little prongs close to the fly wheel. They might just be rusted and not getting a good electric pulse to the spark plug. Also clean the spark plug wire end that goes on the plug. I use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Your choice.

Good luck and let me know if this works.

thanks

Brand new Pope Spitfire 40 lawnmower won't start


Caren,
Drain the fuel completely if it is older than 1 week. Make sure you undo the bolt at the bottom of the fuel bowl to ensure all old fuel is drained. Refill with fresh fuel (premium unleaded) and try again. If it still does not work then remove the spark plug and rest it on the metal of the mower while still attached to the silicone ignition wire. Have someone hold the cut out bar to the handle (as you normally would to run the motor) and pull the cord. You should see sparks being emitted from the spark plug. (Make sure there is no fuel nearby) If you cannot see any sparks then replace the spark plug with a new one and repeat this process. If you still cannot see any sparks being emitted after attatching the new plug to the silicone wire, resting it on the metal of the mower, and pulling the cord to start it as you normally would, the mower will need to have the resistor and capacitor checked by a professional repairer as no spark is being generated.

Good luck.
