Huskee madel 13af673h131, won't crank


I guess you were sitting on the seat while trying to start the unit, so Try to apply power direct to the starter, if it turns over buy a solinoid. If it doesn't the starter may be bad. To check the engine: take out the spark plugs and try to turn over the engine from underneath by hand, using the pulley. This will tell if the engine is siezed up

My Husqvarna YTH2348 tractor won't start. Nothing


It could be a couple of different things. A couple of things that you can check yourself before having to take it to someone to look at it:

1. Open the hood and try turning the engine by spinning the round "cheese grater" looking part that is attached to the flywheel. - it probably won't turn.

2. Remove the spark plug(s) and try again. (Be careful, if the the cylinder is full of gas/oil it will come out as you spin it by hand.) - DO NOT use the electric start to try and turn it over! This sends spark to the plug wire and could ignite any fuel causing severe burns and/or other serious injuries.

-IF-

You were unable to spin the engine over by hand without the spark plug(s) in it, then you may be dealing with anything from a wedged starter gear to a seized engine. Fuel with ethanol added to it attacks the rubber/neoprene seals in carburetors and often times allows fuel to fill the crankcase and cylinder. If this has happened the above mentioned plan of action will let you know. As always, anytime the fuel mixes with the engine oil, you should change the oil to prevent the engine from locking up under normal operation.

I hope this gives you a little bit direction. =)

My generator will not start I don't think I am getting a spark?


To check the spark you need to remove the spark plug. Then reattach the plug wire to the plug. Next, ground the plug to the engine. Finally, pull the start cable and check for spark. Remember not to pull the starter without the plug being grounded or you can ruin the ignition module.

I just put a new carb on my 17.5 hp lawn tractor .... it starts and runs great then after about 2 minutes it cut out .... and won't start for a few minutes .... spark is good ...... any ideas? it is...


It is possible that the fuel line is too close to the engine and the fuel flashes to vapor in the fuel line causing vapor lock. I recommend adjusting the fuel line if posible, and retry. Maybe replace that section of fuel line.

The other possibility is the ignition coil is going bad. You can check it by running the engine and when it stops, quickly remove the spark plug, caution hot. Put plug back into the wire and ground the spark plug and try to turn over the engine with the key start, if good spark, then the problem is likely the other,

I mentioned the fuel line first, because you said that you had been working with the carburetor, and the fuel line may be moved or a little shorter.

I hope this helps you get going soon.

Engine will not run with no spark or a weak spark. Continuity test will only reveal that the winding is not open, not if you are producing a weak spark that will not jump the spark plug gap.
