Sometimes new mowers are shipped without spark plug wire attached to spark plug.

Brand new mower out of the box, got it together, primed, turns over but shuts right off like it's not getting gas. Is there a shut off switch or something?


You don't say what kind. I know Honda's mowers have a fuel shut off on some of them. Check the gas line to see if it's clear

Ai put oil/gas mixture in tank...drained tank put correct gas and cleaned air filter..will only start after prime but only for a second


You've probably plugged the carburetor up with oil. It'll need a good cleaning with carb cleaner. If you don't know how, then I'd recommend a professional to do the job. Best of luck to you.

I prime it; and it starts right up. Then, it stalls out, after a second ot two. Its a new lawn mower; and there is plenty gas in it.


Check your gas can. If you put dirty fuel in it, it will block the jets in the carburetor, preventing the engine from getting enough fuel. If you have a dirty gas can, you now will need to clean the carburetor jet.

See if it will start with a little splash of fuel down the carb.

If it starts for a second you probably have a plugged main jet.

The mowers collect a little bit of fuel in the bottom of the carb and then water comes along and it makes rust and gunk and turns the brass stuff all green. You remove the main jet and clean the two holes on the bottom and the little tiny hole at the top of the threads *(you should wire brush the threads and get a tiny piece of wire strand to clean this jet.)

I know you ran the mower till it ran out of gas....but that was only till it ran out of enough gas to fuel the main jet. There was still fuel residue in the fuel line and the bowl.

This should be a fast fix though. Good luck and be careful!

Brand new 550! push red pump button 3-4 times... pull handle..mower starts up then dies. Will not continue to run..


Sounds like wet fuel! The priming puts enough gas in to start it but the running circuit does not.

Check your gas can for a layer of water on the bottom of it. If it has a lot of water in it you should dispose of this fuel at a gas station that collects used oil and gas. Drain the mower and take that gas away too.

Put in fresh gas from a known clean and dry source.

Let me know what you find ok?

Good luck and be careful!
