Flymo petrol mower starts but won't tick over.....keeps cutting out
Probably needs the carburetter cleaned out. Smell a lot of petrol? could be flooding out. Starts up but dies. No smell of excess petrol? Fuel line clogged at tank inlet, rust? Other crud? Gas gets to carb, engine starts then runs out of fuel. I dont know the flymo carb, but generally...
Start by removing the bowl under the carb, 2-3 screws. Youll need to remove the air filter box first. You should find a float tank which operates a needle valve. This can be released by popping out a pin pivot. DO NOT LOSE THE NEEDLE VALVE which will come out with it. A pointed stem which closes the fuel as the float rises. If you see a lot or just a little crud around here, that can be the problem. Clean it out with carb cleaner spraying up into the where the needle seats, also spray into every opening you see. Carefully replace the needle and float. The needle generally snaps into or is locked into the float loosely, then pin the float back in place while guiding the stem back into its hole. Replace the bowl and try to start it.
