A quick shot of carburetor cleaner in the carb acts like starter fluid. If it is sparking, it should rev faster or try to start. If no spark, it won't even react.

Pour some gas in the air intake of carb but just a small amount. If it doesn't hit then it's probably your spark.

Depending on how many hours you have on the mower, it might be as simple as replacing the spark plug. The starter is turning the engine over, but you are not igniting the fuel. I would also recommend adjusting the carburetor once you get it running.

Hi Again Mo:
A quick check would be to remove the air filter and prime the carb with a little squirt of gas. Sometimes they will start and keep right on running. My Craftsman has had that problem since the day I bought it new.

My powermore engine won" turnover. Starter sounds scratchy


First make sure you battery is up to full charge then you may have to pull the starter and take it to a repair shop and get it checked out. Sounds like you need a replacement. Also check battery cable both end and make sure they are clean and tight before doing anything.

Starts, but wont run, stops running after a few minutes-then wont start for several minutes. Changed oil, spark plug is good-cleaned carburator, checked air filter.


You didn't mention what machine you're referring to. My guess is that is is still the carburetor. You missed something. Happens to me all the time. Sounds like a fuel problem if it "Starts, but won't run".

The lawnmower won t start after pulling the start up cord . changed the spark plug it still won t start


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 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.

Yard machine riding mower will not start


check all of your known safety switches!
Clutch has to be pushed in
seat switch (sit on mower)
blade disengage switch
Finally check your starter soleniod between the battery and the starter and look for fuses and check them out in the process
