Change the spark plug. test for spark with a spark tester. if no spark unhook the coil and try to start it if it dont start the coil is probably bad. replace the coil.

I ran over a rock with my craftman 650 lawn mower and it now makes a funny cranking noise when I try to start it I changed the fly wheel key and it still doesn't start.


When you try to start the engine pulling on the rope, is it easier or harder to pull to turn over the engine? If easier there is internal damage as below, if harder there is internal damage as below. That cranking or grinding sound could be the rope starter or the clutch of the rope start. So when you have the cover off of the flywheel pull on the rope and see if it makes the sound you are hearing and check the clutch that threaded onto the the crank holding the flywheel in place see that it turns in freely in the opposite direction of the engine running.

You may have bent the crank, take the spark plug out, put the mower on it's side with the carburetor on the up side and turn the mower blade by hand and see if you can tell if there is a wobble. While you have the spark plug out, look in the plug hole while turning over the engine to see of the piston is moving up and down. Another possible problem the cam gear could be broken and the valves not opening and closing in time with the crank.

Pull rope will not pull


Remove recoil rope assembly. Ensure rope is properly wrapped around. While recoil assembly is removed use ratchet and socket to rotate fly wheel, remove spark plug first, observe compression and exhaust at spark plug whole during rotation of fly wheel. Clean or replace spark plug. Ensure oil is full. 30w. Set spark plug gap. Always use Stabile in gas. Replace coil rope is required. Purchased by the foot at any mower repair store.

Spray starting fluid in cylinder before replacing spark plug. Ensure plug wires snaps on tight. Check oil level, fill with 30w oil if required. All mowers have a low oil start cutoff.

My push lawn mower has no spark. It has a Tecumseh motor. What could be the problem?


Hi
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Please take time to rate me

Your piston cylinder is partially full of oil and/or gas. Take the spark plug out and pull the rope four or five times to blow everything out of the cylinder. If it's still hard to pull over with the plug out check the oil level in the crank case to see if it filled with gas while the mower was on its side. Make sure the plug is dry and clean and reinstall it. When it starts it's going to smoke a lot until it cleans out the cylinder.

I can't pull the starter rope more than a few inches. Just purchased the mower. Its a craftsman push mower


Try taking the spark plug out and pulling it. If you have a bunch of gas, oil, or water come out, and the engine turns over, you will have your problem. If you have stuff in there, you will want to pull the starter rope a bunch of times to try to push it all out, and then dry off the spark plug, put it back in, and give it a go. You may have to leave the plug out for while to let the cylinder dry out.

Yard Machines 22 inch mower, I dumped it on its top over the weekend, bent the blade, replaced it, now wont start, did leak oil out of the air filter, cleaned it out real well still wont start


if you bent the blade most likely you bent the crankshaft too.
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope and remove excess oil from the spark plug hole
check the spark plug for spark if you have none then a flywheel key is sheered a more in depth fix.
If you get it started you may notice a whole lota vibration due to a bent crank shaft or maybe not?

Mower shakes


sounds like you bent the crank - remove the spark plug , tie the shut off handle closed with a rope , then raise mower up so you can spin the blade . look at the blade bolt while you spin blade . if crank is bent the bolt will seem to wobble
