    Be sure to drain the carb of old fuel.

    Pull the plug(s) and dip the tips in gas and reinstall and try starting.

    Taking the plugs out resets the grounding through the threads and wetting w/gas gives it something to ignite with the weakest spark.Once it starts everything will shape up. Run it for 1/2 hour to chase all the spidersout. "working out the bugs?:-)

Started to stall twice while driving then did stall and has not started since

What is year--make--model? Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
Does it stall at idle or going down the highway? How long since a tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free, if there are any. Depending on your model year, you need a code reader, at the least, that will work with your vehicle, to check codes. If your obd1, you may not need a code reader.
If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs, gasoline engine. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse, where applicable.

Get an overhaul kit for your carburetor. Rubber parts need to be changed not simply cleaned. Gasoline handled properly will clean the carb or you can get a spray on product from any auto parts store.

Vacume does not **** hoses are clean

If it is not cleaning the floor properly start by installing a new belt. Belts should be replaced at least twice per year even if they look ok and the brush roll seems to spin. They lose elasticity and will not clean properly.

How do I fix my push mower with a Briggs & Stratton engine?

Its obviously a fuel starvation issue, so there is still some blockage in the carb, re move the carb and see if your frendly local dealer will clean it in there sonic cleaning tank, if not soak with carb cleaner and blow the jets through.

Have a pellet stove that has been working perfect for years, then last night it shut itself off and when I opened door there was this black tar on everything inside and the windows were also black. I had...

Several of things come to mind: Have you changed the type (Brand) of pellets, recently?
Have you had your chimney (stack) cleaned in the past year? Is the fresh air intake functioning properly? Is the auger feeding to much or to little pellets?

Changing brand of pellets - Not all wood pellets are made the same. If you recently changed brands, you will need to tweak your stove to handle this new brand. This will affect how the auger feeds.

If you chimney (stack) hasn't been cleaned in the past 12 months, it may be partially clogged with creosote and not drawing properly and it is liquefying and running back down the chimney and not allowing for a clean burn. And could cause a chimney fire.

Fresh air intake: If that's not functioning properly, you're getting incomplete combustion. Which will cause the black tar looking substance you described. Couple that with changing brands of pellets and you have a problem.

The above are the first things that came to mind. I hope it steers you in the right direction to troubleshoot the problem. Please let me know.

Last year around this time I tried to start my

Carburetor is probably gunked up from old gas left in system. It will need some cleaning and / or dissasembly.

Have it repaired at a reputable mower or small engine repair shop. When being stored for long periods, run it out of gas or use a fuel stabilizer in the gas to prevent this from reoccuring.

Door light, on/off switch, water and ice dispenser not working

First of all if your water dispenser is working then we know that the control panel is getting power. If not open the door and manually press the door switch to see of the switch is working properly. The switch will cut power to the dispenser to prevent operation while the door is open. Second you need to check the wiring at the hinge to see if there is a break in it.

if you are still having trouble please respond with a model number
