First, pull the spark plug and see if it is wet/damp with gasoline. That's one way to tell if it is getting gas. Try starting the engine with starting fluid. If it will run with starting fluid, but not on it's own, it is a pretty good bet that there is a fuel delivery or ignition problem. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

How can I tell if my starter is bad on my cub cadet rtz mower


Check for spark

Have to get the test plug for small engines

Is the battery years old & partially dead?

Is the oil clean & full

Won't turn over or won't start?

Clean the flywheel & ignition coil or whatever
system it has for spark

Check for intake gasket leaks.

Did the meter always go down to 9.8 when it did start?

Hi I did a tune up ,changed and checked every thing I done ..too I changed the oil ,oil filter ,gas filter air filter ,got a new battery changed the plugs there new too...even a new belt new key ...but...


Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.

Tecumseh engine right? Pull the float bowl off the carb. I suspect some water contamination. while it is off clean the jet holes in the nut. They may have varnisized gas in them. contact me with any more questions.

Lawn Mower will not stay running then will not restart


I think we all understand the frustation penaone.
I noticed u didn't clean the fuel tank, water, dirt, and rust in it can give u problems. But u need to clean the lines and carb. again also. One of the kids filled my mower gas tank with driveway gravel once, and after I cleaned things out, the mower never run so good. Also your spark may be grounding out somewhere before it gets to the spark plug. Check for a bad spot in the wires from the magneto. Some of that may be behind the flywheel though.

Lawn mower won't start /troy built 100706


First check to see that you are getting a spark. if you are getting spark (if same plug when you bought it change spark plug) make sure it is correct plug for that mower, make sure you have good gas. If still not starting and the machine probably was sitting for a while, clean the carb and then it should run fine.

Mower will not start


Hi
Take the spark plug out and pour a little bit of oil in the cylinder and crank it over without the spark plug in. Make sure ground wire is clean on both ends.
