Pushmower won't start?

A few quick steps can help you diagnose the problem. Remove the air filter cover and air filter. Spray a shot of carb cleaner into the carb and try to start the mower. If the mower starts on the prime then you have a fuel issue. Be sure your fuel is fresh (less than a week old. Fuel is bad at 21 days old) and clean or rebuild the carb. If the mower wont start on the prime then it is an ignition or compression problem. Start by checking that the stop cable is pulling the bail off ground sufficiently.

I bout a 22" push mover last year.The priming bulb on this has been torn and it is difficult to start it.It should not tear or get damaged so easily.Please help. Harjinder S Sabherwal

I agree the priming bulb should be more robust or somehow protected. You could replace the bulb, but soon have the same problem again. A simple work-around is to buy a can of spray instant-start (spray ether sold in auto parts stores). Spray this into the air filter each time you start the mower cold, thus avoiding the need to prime it.

I replaced the carburetor, spark plug, and put in new gasolone on a Toro Recycler (5 yrs. old) and it still won't start. The ignition is only one year old. Seems like I'm not getting any spark and the fuel...

Hi. Replace the air filter. Then use some starter fluid and an assistant. Spray some starter fluid into the air intake as you start it up and keep spraying so that it runs on the starter fluid for a few seconds until it really takes off. J.

If this does not do it then you will have to have the carburetor rebuilt as it has hardened gunk in it.

My craftsman riding mower model917.274641 won't start. I was using it and when I stopped to put a bagger on it wouldn't start. have replaced plug,gas and air filter. It backfires sometimes when turning...

First, take the air filter off and spray a shot of carb cleaner/ starting fluid in the carb. If it starts for a second and runs on the prime then its a fuel issue. Check fuel filter, fuel delivery, and carb.

Toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.
