Any engine has to have 2 things to run. Gas and ignition to the spark plug. You can check the fire to the spark plug by removing the plug wire from the plug and inserting a phillips screwdriver into the end of the plug wire. Try to start while holding the shank of the screw driver very close (but do not touch) to the head where the spark plug screws into. If you see a spark jump from the screw driver shank to the head, you have fire. If you have new gas and fire and it still won't start. Change the spark plug.

SOURCE: Tractor Won't start

Hi,
If you are getting a backfire condition your fuel mixture is too rich. This simply means that your carb needs to be adjusted (Too much fuel to air mixture).

With key my riding lawn mower does not start, not even crank. Nothing happened.


Are you positive that the battery is fully charged? If so check for current reaching the starter motor. If current is there then it appears that the starter motor is no good. If no current reaches motor it is possible the ignition switch is no good.

Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.
