Sounds like the fly wheel key is sheared making the engine out of time. Check and make sure you dont have a bent blade too, When the blade hits something the key will shear off so it doesnt damage other things but the blade may be bent as well

Lawn mower won't start


Check spark plug grounded when pulling starter to see if you get fire First. Then , spray(if getting spark at plug) starting fluid in a air intake , if motor fires, you're not getting gas so clean gas tank and carb, then , it should run fine.

Model 944.361200.mower won,t start in colder weather,once temp gets above the70degree mark it will start,but blue smoke comes form exaust.mower will start right away every time once engine is hot.fresh gas...


I have a mower with a Honda 165cc engine that is temperamental as far as the initial start up is concerned.
Once it has started it always fires up first pull
The problem seems to be the gas is slow to reach the carb / cylinder
I have developed a ritual for starting up.
Open the gas tap.
Lean the mower back until the hand bar touches the ground.
Raise the mower and lift the hand bar so the back wheels are off the ground for a few seconds.
Fully open the throttle, Hold the ignition control back and operate the pull cord.
If it doesn't start first time I am usually rewarded with a promising fire-up.
Sounds wacky but works for me and used to spend 20 to pulls on the cord to get it to fire .

I have a toro snow blower that makes a popping sound when pulled but wont start any ideas


Have you tried using starter fluid? Sounds like the timing may be off or it may be flooded. Pull out the spark plug and see if it is wet. If so dry off the plug and pull the engine over with no plug (move the spark plug wire away from the spark plug and ground it out so it wont cause a fire). This will spit out the excess gas in the cylinder and then put it back together and try again. What model is the Toro?
