Might be the carburetor or air filter dirty. Need right amount of air to mix with fuel at the right time.
To service these best to check this video out. Yours may not be the same exact model but gives an idea.

Why does the mower deck on my Snapper SR 1030 constantly fall and scalp my grass?


Some part(s) are worn out or broken in the height adjustment section. If it has a handle with a button for that adjustment, check it from top to bottom, and the linkage it connects to at the bottom of the handle. www.mowpart.com will have a parts breakdown.

Lawnmower won't start. There is no primer bulb,supposed to start on first pull


Do you have fresh gas? Make sure the choke on carb is working, maybe drain the gas out of carb and or clean it out, check for spark

No spark on W1-185V


I seem to go through this every year my lawnmower. What I do is drain the fuel tank and fill with fresh fuel. Then I replace the spark plug with a new one and it starts up right away. Otherwise I'd take it to a small engine repair shop for a tune up.

My snapper hi-vac niwer us hard to start. I can't pull hard enough to get it to start. It uses straight gas, not mixed with oil.


If you are having problems starting your mower you shouldcheck 3 things, air, fuel and spark.

Fuel: check to make sure you are full of good quality fuel, try to start theengine several times then take out the spark plug and it should look wet. If its not wet then you aren't getting fuel into the engine.

Air: remove and clean the air filter with clean gasoline if its made offoam. If its made of paper then you should buy a new one from a localauto parts or hardware store.

Spark: disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold thewire close to the engine block. Try to start the engine and watch for aspark to jump between the end of the wire and the engine block. If itdoesn't then either the wire is bad or the ignition coil is bad.

Engine will not start. Use to start really good. Changed spark plug.


Take out the spark plug put it to the head and pull the engine over and check if there is any spark if there is it's a fuel problem and not well check the coil. Now if there is a spark put a wee drop of fuel into the plug hole put plug in and pull over if it fires then you know it's a fuel problem it's ethier the carb or bad pettrol.L davidson lawnmower tech

Snapper lawnmower will not start - sparkplug is good, air filter clean, no idea what is wrong


Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the vertical intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.
