Cant get my 11A086F062 Yard Machine to crank

I cant seem to get my mower to crank. I've checked the spark plug it's firing, I have Gas in it. The mower was given to me by my father and it has being sitting in a garage for a while. I was wondering if you had a diagram of the motor online to show me things to check on it. For instant's my father says that it may be the points I would'nt know where to start looking for points.

How old is this mower?
They stopped using points on lawn mowers some time ago.
When they had points on them, they were under the flywheel.
You will need a puller to get the flywheel off.

Does it start or fire when you pour some gas in the carb.?
Could have lost it's prime, meaning, the gas evaporated from the primer bowl of the carb.
Take the air cleaner off and pour a small amount of gas into the carb. Replace the air cleaner and try to start it.
The diaphragm/fuel pump and gasket dry out also, they are about a $4-$5 dollar part if it is a Briggs&Stratton 3- 4 horse, which I am assuming is on your mower.

disassemble carburetor, soak in solvent, check the float, needle and seat, replace if necessary,,,using compressed air blow out all vents etc in carb body,,should take care of problem

Lawn mower won't start

Check spark plug grounded when pulling starter to see if you get fire First. Then , spray(if getting spark at plug) starting fluid in a air intake , if motor fires, you're not getting gas so clean gas tank and carb, then , it should run fine.

Yard Machines 13.5 HP riding mower wont start. It turns over fast, has good spark, good gas, good filter, clean carb, just wont fire. It ran fine yesterday and i parked it last night and tried to fire it...

Hi, check that the choke is operating and make sure the plug is wet after cranking. If so replace the sparkplug as it may be breaking down under compression. Also make sure it has compression ad it may have a stuck valve. regards Phil

I have checked the fuel and spark plug along with the filter on my yard machine 20 inch 3.75 horsepower machine, I just cant get it to fire, I started it yesterday but stopped to take a break and have not...

Recheck spark. You probably have a heat stressed coil.

The break you took gave the mower enough time to heat soak the coil causing it to fail.

Replacement coils are relatively inexpensive and if you have basic mechanical skills you can probably do it yourself if you want to.
