SOURCE: the mower has spark and good gas flow to the carb

Sounds to me like you have water in your carburator bowl , or your needle valve is stuck in it's seat. Shut off your fuel tank to carburator, remove the carburator bowl with container underneath, careful of the gasket, and see what comes out. If needle is stuck up into carburator gently pull down.
Also check the container for water. This could be one, or both of your problems. Clean parts , replace , and it might be a good idea to drain your fuel tank you may have some water in there. Start with fresh gas. GOOD LUCK.

Allpower American. 10000w generator won't start? Changed spark plug, gas is flowing. What else can we try?

Make sure it has plenty of oil. Some engines have a low oil shut off. Pull the spark plug wire off and stick a screw driver down inside the spark plug boot and hold the screw driver about a 1/4 inch away from the top of the spark plug and turn the engine over to see if you have a good bluish spark. If you don't then you have a bad coil or rust build up on the flywheel. If you have spark make sure your gas tank is full with new gas. Make sure the air filter is clean. If that doesn't work try taking the bowl off of the bottom of the carburetor and verify gas flows through the float valve. If that doesn't work then you will probably have to remove the carburetor and clean it out.

Murray B&S riding mower turns over but never fires.

Sounds like you have done a good job of trouble shooting. You should check again and see if there is spark at the spark plug. If so great. If not you need to bypass the key switch and try again. Are you getting fuel, a dirty carb can look clean, the smallest spec of dirt can get in a jet and drive you crazy trying to find it. If you are getting fuel is it fresh? Old gas is one of the biggest causes of a no start situation,change your fuel. If these things pass you will need to check compression or even pull the muffler off and look for scoring on the piston and cylinder.if this is the case you ne to rebuild the engine.these are basic quick things to check and one of them will tell you what the problem is. good luck.

      Make sure the key and kill switch are both in the "on" position. Ensure that the proper starting procedures for your bike are followed. Is it in neutral? Clutch pulled in? Gas in the tank? Then try to start your bike. Does it turn over? If not, check to see that the battery is properly connected and the terminals are not corroded. If they're loose or dirty, clean and tighten them. Then, using a voltmeter that measures ac/dc and ohms, check to see that your battery has enough charge to crank the engine. If not, replace or charge your battery and try again. If it still doesn't turn over, there may be a loose connection between your battery and starter; a bad ignition or starter switchl or a bad safety relay. Check a repair manual for proper testing procedures for your bike, as each motorcycle differs.

      If your bike turns over but doesn't catch, check to see that it's getting fuel. If the bike has a fuel petcock, make sure it is in the "on" (or, on certain bikes, "prime") position. Then remove the main fuel hose and check to see that fuel is flowing freely. If fuel isn't getting to the carburetor or injection system, your bike won't run. If that's the case, your problem is likely something in the fuel system. If fuel is flowing freely, reattach the lines. If it's not, check to see if the fuel filter is clogged, if a line is pinched or if the petcock is working properly. One way to determine if the problem is in your fuel system is to put a few drops of fresh gas into each spark-plug hole, replace the plugs and turn the bike over. If it starts and then quits, the problem is likely in the fuel system.

  • If you're getting fuel and the bike turns over but still doesn't catch or start, check the spark plug or plugs. Start by pulling off a spark plug wire, then removing a plug using the spark plug socket supplied in your bike's toolkit. Now inspect the plug. It should not be wet (usually caused by fuel, when the plug is not firing) or coated in carbon/burned oil deposits. Now check to see if the bike is getting spark. Although you can get a special, insulated set of pliers to hold the plug, there's a "quick and dirty" method for this: After reattaching the plug wire, lay the threaded part of the plug against the engine (not over the plug hole, as the spark could ignite any fuel that is blown out when you try to start it). Now, making sure you're not in contact with the engine or plug, hit the starter. You should see a nice blue spark. If you don't, make sure the threaded portion of the plug is touching the engine (but the electrode is not) and try again. If you still don't see a spark, you either have a bad plug or a problem with the electrical system. Check to see that all the ignition wires are properly connected and that you can't see any cracks in the wires. If the wires are cracked, they should be replaced. If you're still not getting spark, it's time to consult a repair manual or call a mechanic.

    If you've got fuel and spark, ascertain that your bike is getting enough air. Start by pulling off the air filter. If it's too dirty, you won't get the proper mixture of air and fuel in the carburetor or injection system. If it's clean, check to see that the air box is properly connected-- a loose hose or air leak can feed too much air into the system. If your bike is equipped with a choke, ensure that it's able to move freely and is not stuck in the "on" or "off" position.

    If you've followed these steps and still can't get your bike to run, call in an expert. If you think you've narrowed down the source of the problem, describe the steps you've taken to point the mechanic in the right direction.

    I have replaced the battery and ignition unit on my 1985 suzuki 700 es, the bike really sounds like it wants to run but wont start. Starter turns but engine won't kick over. Any Ideas?

    Is it getting gas properly? Has it been sitting around for a while? The carburators on motorcycles need to cleaned after sitting around. The jet could be full of varnish. Are you getting spark for sure? Pull out a spark plug and put it in the wire, crank it over and see if the spark plug sparks. When you pulled the plug was it wet at all with gas? Then it probably isn't getting gas right. Just some of the things you could try.

    How to start the snowblower yard machine when you've tried everything to start it up correctly and it doesn't start?

    How did you store it? The gas should be drained out of the carburator and tank prior to storing. If you don't do that it starts varnishing the jets closed in the carburator. So to start it, try draining all the old gas out. Take the spark plug out and put the wire back on and lay it on top of the block. Crank the engine over turn switch on if it has one, does it have spark? If it does good. If not try a new plug, if it still does not have spark you will have to pull the flywheel to see what is wrong with the points or pickup. Once you have spark established, put new fuel in tank. Spray a little WD40 into spark plug hole. Put spark plug back in and go through normal starting procedures. Good luck.

    I have a 1997 xl custom that will not hold a charge. will not start just turns over.

    If the engine is turning over but won't start, your battery is fine. You've either got a fuel problem or an ignition problem Take the spark plugs out of the heads and put them back into the spark plug wires. Lay the plugs on the heads so that they are grounded against the engine. Turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the spark plugs to see if you have spark to the plugs. Don't get your face too close to the spark plug holes as a lot of air will blow out of them. If you do have spark, put the spark plugs back in the heads and take the air filter cover and element off of the carb. Look just inside the mouth of the carb and you'll see a brass nozzle standing up. With the engine OFF, crank the throttle grip to the wide open position. You should see a good stream of fuel squirt out of the nozzle into the carb. If not, there is no fuel in the carb. Pull the fuel line off the petcock. Turn the igniton switch on and spin the engine and watch for a good flow of fuel out of the petcock. If you don't have any fuel flowing out of the petcock, replace the petcock. You can either drain the fuel from the tank or take the tank off the bike to replace it.

    Good Luck
