Why wont my Flymo qs 46sd rev ?

does it have a throttle cable fitted?? you really dont need an idle as as soon as you release the opc or dead mans handle it will cut out anyway. engine should be reving at 3000-3100 rpm. if this mower has a briggs and stratton engine fitted, remove the air filter and check the spring and linkege is still attached to the air vane govenor

Flymo 46s won't start. Starts to fire when turned

Possible blocked air filter, try as a test running the engine with filter removed, if ok replace with new filter.

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.
Good luck

My flymo petrol grass cutter will not start after 6 months in the shed its dry but i have left petrol in it and it has oil in it up to the full level

Man! A mower that flies?
You probably have gummed up the carb because it was stored too long without a fuel stabilizer..

No priming bulb on flymo petrol mower

if JLO engine (normally silver colour) the primer is on top of the carb you press it down
if tecumseh (brown colour) the primer is on the bottom of the carb and you press it up
hope this helps
