It's not getting enough fuel to the carb. It may have some water in the fuel so unless you are 100%certain it is good gas then I recommend draing all the gas out of the tank and also removing the carb and clean it.

    Would that affect the blades turning... It starts for maybe 10 seconds and then it doesn't start after that.

    The blades on a push mower are connected directly with the engine so yes it can, especially if the mower barely stays running.

SOURCE: Continuously stalling and extreme difficulty restarting.

The brass "Bolt" that holds the "cup" on the bottom of your carburetor is also the main fuel metering jet for the engine. Get yourself a can of automotive carb cleaner, the aerosol type that comes with the small red plastic tube on the side of the can. Remove the "Bolt" and "cup". (Tip: tilt the carb side of the mower UP about 45 degrees and support it with whatever you have, wood, bricks etc. This will help stem the flow of gas from the tank while you have the "cup" removed.) Examine the "Bolt" and you will see one or two small holes in the side of the "Bolt" between the hex head and the threads. These are the metering orifices. Use the carb cleaner to throughly clean the "Bolt" orifices. (Tip: DO NOT attempt to 'drill' the orifices clean) Next, use the red plastic tube to spray carb cleaner up through the hole on the carburetor that the "Bolt" screws into. Be liberal with the cleaner. Finally, clean the "cup" with the spray one more time for good measure. Put everything back together. (Tip: easy does it on tightining the "Bolt") Level the mower, check for leaks and verify the oil level is OK. If the plug and air filter are up to snuff you should be good to go. (Tip: how old is your fuel? You should keep it around for only about 30 days unless you use fuel stabilizer. These little engines LOVE fresh fuel) Good Luck.

SOURCE: Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start

FOR SURE CHECK ALL PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED ITEMS , TRY THIS...ALMOST GUARANTEE IT WILL RUN............ REMOVE "ALL" OLD FUEL, REFILL WITH FRESH HIGHEST OCTANE FUEL. REPLACE SPARK PLUG (YES, EVEN IF IT LOOKS OK!) GAIN ACCESS TO CARB OPENING, REMOVE AIR FILTER..OR WHATEVER. USING SPRAY CARB CLEANER, FILL ENTIRE CARB AND FLOATBOWL WITH CLEANER....WAIT OVERNIGHT IF POSSIBLE..IT WILL EVAPORATE. NEXT DAY SHOOT MORE INTO CARB..GETTING ANY JETS, ORIFICES ETC..FILL FLOAT BOWL AGAIN. P.S. CLEAN OR REPLACE AIR FILTER IF NEEDED! WAIT A WHILE, GAP NEW SPARK PLUG, INTRODUCE APPROX. 1-2 OZ. OF FRESH GAS INTO PLUG HOLE...QUICKLY RE-INSTALL SPARK PLUG ..WITH ON/OFF SWITCH-BAR OFF..PULL OR CRANK ENGINE A FEW TIMES. MAKE SURE IGNITION CAN FIRE, CRANK(ELECT. START) OR PULL STARTER ROPE & MOWER SHOULD FIRE OVER. IF IT STARTS..RUNS..THEN STALLS (AFTER USING UP GAS IN CARB, TRY IT AGAIN. IF IT CONTINUES TO STALL QUICKLY...YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST A CARBURATOR REBUILD, OR IF NO START AT ALL..YOU NEED TO SEE IF PLUG IS FIRING.

I have white zero turn 54" lawn mower. The engine runs but the blades won't turn on. Please any advise will help


This is a belt adjustment problem. You machines belt has either broken, or is loose to the point where it won't engage the blades at all, or has just slipped off the pulley. I believe the belts are on top of the deck covered by removable covers that are bolted to the deck. Check and see. GOOD LUCK.

Everything works normal but when i let brake off engine stalls oh this is on a stx38 lawn tractor


If the mower is stalling when you engage the blades, then you may have something jammed in the underside of the deck. You could use a mirror to look under the deck and see what is jammed and not allowing the blades to spin freely.
