Pull Cord Stops...

could be valve needs set. if it isn't opening at the right time it wont release compression for it to start. it may be the shear key in the flywheel has sheared if you have hit something like a big rock or log or something causing it to die suddenly.

Briggs and stratton 35 classic wont start, what can i do?

take the plug lead off and hold it near to some metal part on the mower, move the throttle lever to around midway and pull the mower cord, if there is a spark the electrical part of the mower is working.
remove the plug, put the lead back on the plug and earth the plug on a metal area and pull the cord again, if there is spark across the points on the plug then the plug is ok, if not replace the plug and try again.
assuming that the plug and lead checks out fine then check the fuel supply, remove the air filter from the side of the carbi and spray some fuel directly into the throat of the carbi and pull the starter cord, if the engine runs for a few seconds you can assume that you have a fuel problem, possibly the filter inside the fuel tank is clogged.

Have no spark to plugs

Those sensors have no effect on spark. Did you replace the plug, if not remove it hold it against the engine, have someone pull cord, watch for spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel problem. If no spark then after replacing plug, then remove stop wire from magneto side. Pull cord an watch for spark. If no spark then remove housing an flywheel, measure gap between mag an flywheel. Check to make sure magnets are still on flywheel. Call some shop or check a service manual on gap setting. If no spark still you will need to replace the magneto. This is rare an its is more likely a plug that needs replacing. Toro snowblowers are nice machines, this is not a hard fix. Really to tackle this is starting with the plug.

You mean start? Try putting proper gas/oil mix in it. Check for spark by pulling spark plug, ground metal case to engine metal and pull start cord. Look for spark in the plug's gap. If it sparks, you have a carburetor problem. Most likely gummed up with old gas. Needs to be removed and cleaned or replaced.

Whipper snipper wont start

when you pull the rope with the plug out do you get any gas coming out of the plug hole? It sounds to me like you have a faulty carburetor that is causing the unit to load up on gas stopping the piston from being able to move all the way with the plug in it

Troy bilt tuff cut 200. Will not started.. started fine the other day. pulling cord and will not turn over. already tried spraying starter fluid in carb... it is roughly a 2004

The first things you should check if your mower wont start is fuel, air and spark. Try pulling the cord a few times and then pull out the spark plug. If it looks wet then its getting fuel. Plug the spark plug into the wire while its outside the mower and hold it very close to a piece of metal attached to the engine without touching the metal (use insulated pliers). Have someone else pull the cord and see if you have sparks jumping between the plug and the engine. Also remove the air filter and clean it with gasoline if its made out of foam or buy a replacement if its made out of paper.

Let me know if none of these things work.

I have a 18in husqvarna chainsaw that wont start. The gas mixture is correct and my spark plug is fine. The chainsaw is not seized up because it has compression when I pull the starting cord.

If you have fuel to the plug and a spark at the plug it is going to fire, unless it has sheared the flywheel key and the timing is out, or it has scuffed the piston, it may seem to have some compression but that could be because the cylinder is flooded, just remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port.

Chain saw not turning over. i have the throttle lock on, choke on, new spark plug in it, and fuel primer activated but the saw still will not kick over

Can you give more info, do you mean that the pul cord does not actually rotate the engine, if this is so the engine is seized or the starter cord mechanism is faulty. If you mean it turns over but wont start and run then ascertain there is spark at the spark plug. Remove it reconnect to plug wire / earth plug / pull and see if spark is there. Should ne quite a yellow spark with some blue in it. Is the plug wet when you remove it?? If so have you used fresh petrol (< 2 weeks old)

Wont kick over

Try to start a few times, If it does not, remove spark plug, If plug is wet, you probably have a spark problem (or water in fuel). With the plug attached to the plug wire hold plug against the engine, pull cord or engage starter to see if you have a spark. If so you will have to get fuel to the engine.
