I have a Scotts _ John Deere law mower tractor model S2048-S2554 Serial number 020-001, the engine runs but sounds like it is going to die or it needs air --- it runs unnevenly

Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

SOURCE: my toro mower won't start.
The Toros have a Tecumseh engine and are famous for this. I'd suggest you do a thorough cleaning of the carburetor, but there is a little known secret that I've learned about this particular carb. Pull the bolt from the bottom of the float bowl on the carb (1/2 inch wrench; the "main jet"). Be sure that all the little holes in that jet are clean and you can stick a wire thru them. There is a microscopic hole at the very top of the threads on that brass bolt that often gets clogged and your mower will not start. I use the wire from the needle valve inside the carburetor to stick thru it, as it's about the only thing that'll fit. (note: if you have 50 year old eyes like me, you can't even see this hole w/out specs). Hope this helps and best of luck to you. (also, be sure you put the float bowl back on the right way; there's a bevel in the back that needs to go toward the hinge in the float or the float won't work. Learned that one the hard way as well. )

Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.

Testimonial: "I finally got it started after draining the gasoline out and replacing with new gas. It only runs with the choke engaged, but I'm going to seafoam the carburetor and add it to the gasoline."
SOURCE: John Deere L110 won't start.
check the solenoid on the bottom of the carb see if there is power if no power check the safety switch on the brake/clutch if there is power remove the solenoid and put power and ground to it to see if it opens if not try and clean it with carb cleaner if that works and opens remove the bowl from the carb and check the needle valve on the float make sure it moves

You need to pull the spark plug out, connect the spark
plug wire and ground the plug to the motor and see if you have spark. If you
have spark (bright blue) then it is a fuel problem. A yellow spark is and indicator
of a coil issue.
