It has a screen filter inside the tank that may have gummed up.If you drain the gas and look inside the tank,You will be able to see it.

SOURCE: John Deere will not start.

If you have gas running down to the carberator ( take the fuel line off and make sure there is gas running to it or there may be a screen or filter plugged by the tank or on the way to the carb) if there is gas there the problem lies in the carb itself. If you have some mechanical ability you should be all right as it is not rocket science. If you are comfortable with taking the carb apart the first thing i would check is the needle vavle. With the carb apart you will see a big brass looking thing this is the float, right above that is the neddle valve, that is the first place they seem to stick on me. Move the float up and down if the neddle above it doesn't move or sticks there is your problem. Spray it with carb cleaner and see if it moves freely. You may have to dismantle the carb to get it to work freely. If it won't buy a carb kit and install all the new gaskets needle valves and jets ( this is a very good ideal any how) Also make sure any little ports in the carb are open ( in the bottom of the carb there may be tiny little holes that are plugged) find a very small wire to clean them with and also make sure when you are done you can spray carb cleaner thru them. This is why they have a small straw on the can with it ( watch your eyes and wear safety glasses as you never know where it will spray out from) That stuff will dry your skin out fast so don't get it in your eyes and you may want to wear rubber gloves. Also be very careful when putting back together as there are little pieces that like to slide around and fall out or may get bent even worse you don't want them in your motor. Also try to count every screw you turn as these are jets and you will want to put them back to the place they were set at cause it's a pain to get them set right by adjusting them later. Do not force anything putting it back as you may bend the jets or float and you will have to take it apart again and replace them as well. Take your time and be patient and you will be just fine

Testimonial: "thanks...you gave me encouragement to give it a try. I took off the shroud, air cleaner box and couldn't take off the carb as there are no heads on the four bolts that hold it on. Looks like it was designed not to be removed? I took off an inspection plate on top of the carb and cleaned all of the channels and ports within with carb cleaner and compressed air...still no gas flowing thru carb...unless I force with compressed air. Any other thoughts? It is a twin cylinder OHV B/S. Thank you. "

I have the Craftsman GT5000 24 OHV tractor lawn mower. It's been in storage for a while, I have replaced the battery, spark plugs, fuel filter, and oil. I can't get it to start. Does the engine have a pump...


Sounds like the carburetor needs a good ultrasonic cleaning as old gas will leave behind varnish and gum deposits clogging the carburetor fuel passages up.

I had to run full chock to get it back to the house before it shut down, what cuase this?


I'm sure you have dirt in your carb. If you know how to take the carb apart......You need to get a can of carb cleaner and carb kit. Take the carb apart and spray every hole and nook a crany you can see. Put the new kit in the carb and you should be ready to go!! This has happened to several times.

Lawn mower dies when it gets hot when it cools off it starts until hot again I've changed the coil and module


you should change the oil and make sure you are using a good oil. Also, make sure your fuel line isn't running next to any place where it can heat up.

I am looking for a diagram of la 140 carburetor. my mower will only run if gas is poured into carburetor.


Sounds like you may need to remove the fuel line from the carb that comes from the tank and see if you have fuel coming out of it.If you don't,try blowing back through it to see if you have a blockage[remove the gas cap first].If you can't blow back through it then you either need a filter,a fuel line or the tank is plugged.If you did get gas to the carb the you need to take the fuel bowl off the carb ,pull the needle pin out and then clean the needle and seat.If none of the above works then soak the carb in carb cleaner for several hours and then clean the carb with brake clean and you should be good to go.If nothing works try a new carb.

Runs for five seconds after being tilted up and put back down.


Trash in the tank fuel line outlet. When you tilt it the trash moves and lets some gas in. Set it down and the trash goes back in the hole and shuts off the gas. No pressure to feed fuel so when you pull choke makes it run rich and then starves for gas again. Dump gas, disconnect the line at the carb. Put a clean tube (drinking straw, plastic tube, whatever will fit so you don't get gas in your mouth) in the gas line and blow air into the tank through the filter clearing the obstruction. Reconnect line then see if it runs longer before it shut off. If it does clean the tank and flush the dirt out.
If that doesn't change anything then it has to be a carb diaphragm leaking and it need a rebuild kit and fuel system flush.

Mower has to be chocked to run


Oftentimes, this problem is the result of mowers left outside in ambient air that is high humidity. This, in turn, allows algae to grow inside the carb fuel float bowl and/or inside the fuel tank if left out for extended periods (one month or longer). Also the same thing will cause air filters to clog rapidly with mold and mildew - slowly at first, then more rapidly as the mold continues to grow. Get out the carb cleaner in spray cans and go through every ported passagewway in the carb body then reassemble using CLEAN screws, gaskets and all interrior parts. Any residue mold or mildew will continue to grow - and it can grow in gasoline!! Imagine that!!
