Question about Garden

1 Answer

I was mowing today and as I passed a tree the spark plug wire got yanked off the plug by a branch. I reconnected, but now it won't start. Have pushed down hard to make sure cap is seated on plug, but nothing.

    Thanks. I concluded that the wire or coil/magneto was damaged and ran it over to the dealer, they agree and will fix it - possibly under warrantee.

I would check out the wire. Sounds like it got yanked hard enough to put some serious pull on it. Start at the end that plugs on the spark plug and work your way to the magneto. Look for any obvious damage. I sure hope not, but I had a similar thing happen once and it costs me a new magneto. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Also check the plug over carefully and make sure that the porcelain isn't cracked and that the plug is not damaged in any way.

Tatarian Maple leaves growing out of trunk, should I remove those branches or buches clear from the ground up as that is how they are growing?


G'day Patti, unless you want to look beyond the tree it would be advisable to leave the lower leaves and branches. The lower branches hide little critters from big critters. Cheers Greg.

Husqvarna 6021p won't start


Make sure spark plug wire is connected and that plug is not blackened and fouled out. Also check your fuel filter (plugged?), the handbar safety lever & it pull cable and make sure it is opening the breather assembly down at the motor or closing the proper switch (unsure of the setup) Those are typically the most common problems. Good Luck

I have a yth20k46 and when I turn the switch it won't turn over. I replaced the battery and spark plugs. what might be the problem


I also have a YTH20K46. During last mow (last week), I tried to turn off mower and would not turn off by key. I had to put it down to choke and then stand up. It created a backfire. Today I went to start it, now won't start. It does not turn over. Hour meter has no power. Tested battery & solenoid. Power to both. Key switch works fine. Any suggestions? Just had it serviced a few months ago. Oil, gas and all other things seem fine. Checked wiring, seems fine. Nothing melted or cut. Please help!

Gas golf cart won't start


try a jump start off of a similar battery with the same voltage. If that does not work, there is a chance your ignition wire is not wired into the throttle anymore. try reconnecting it.

Does the mower die right away (cuts out) or does it sputter to a halt. Sputtering out would indicate a fuel problem. If it just cuts out when hot, then more likely an ignition problem. Your coil may need replacing. Take a close look at the coil wire (spark plug wire) and its routing. Make sure it's not touching part of the engine where it's heating up and has caused a "leak" to ground it out when it gets hot. If all is well then check your spark when the engine is hot and cuts out. Make sure you have a very good blue spark and not a weak one (check it cold first and then compare!). Again, indicating a possible ignition coil problem. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.
