There are a few things to check 1 is water in the fuel the new ethanol gas has allot of moisture in it .If the mower has been sitting a long might need a carburetor rebuild kit. The spark plug could be fouled or the coil couldnt be getting spark . If it was an older mower it could have a points and contacts problem

Need a manual for yard machine snow blower, model #31A-260-7310


Assuming that you have a Tecumseh engine on your machine, this should help you out a bit. Tecumseh also has some other very helpful documentation on their TecumsehPower.com website.

Tecumseh 4.5 hp engine won't start


First thing to check on a Tecumseh; pull the half inch bowl nut (main jet) out of the bottom of the carburetor. Give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner then pay special attention to the teeny tiny hole that is right at the very top of the threads. It's so small you can hardly see it and if it clogs, your mower won't start. Best of luck to you.

I'm assuming you have a Tecumseh engine on there. But a Briggs would be the same. This is straight from Tecumseh, though (long story short is run 5W30 Oil or 0W30 Synthetic in it assuming winter temperatures:

I borrowed my Brothers Tecumseh Yard Machine Push Mower to mow my lawn but the pull cord wont pull. Is there a saftey or something i dont know about ?


There is a little bar up by the handle that you have to pull back toward the handle, this is the dead man lever. When released it will stop the mower by grounding out the ignition coil and braking the engine.

If this is not the problem, then let me know.

I hope this helps.

Looking for a carburetor for a yard machines mtd


You may have better luck in identifying the engine type and manufacture (Briggs & Stratton, Tecumseh, etc) and get the number of the engine vs the machine itself, if possible. If you are able to do this, you can search ebay or the net for a wider range of possibilities for a purchase.
