SOURCE: cannot get mower to start.
Here is some help for your problem...
Check to make sure you are getting fire/spark at the plug, if so then do the following:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Sounds like the float valve is sticking open. You will have to drain the gas (or at least turn off the valve where the gas leaves the tank if so equipped.) Then remove the bowl to clean the float valve. (There is usually a nut in middle of the bowl.) The bowl looks like a bowl, and is about 2 inches in diameter. When you remove it you will see the float, which probably looks like a little brass donut. If you remove the hinge pin that allows the float to move up and down (it only moves about 1/2 inch) you will then allow the valve pin to fall out. The valve pin is about 3/4 inches long and maybe 3/16 diameter. (I am not measuring these things, just giving approximate dimensions so you will recognize them when you see them.) Good luck, Al K
