Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

I tried to start my mower, and it turned over and over. I stopped for about 2-3 minutes and tried again and it would not turn over. The battery is charged (new) and I checked the fuses (only found 2). When the key is turned to the auxilary postion, it does make a clicking sound but nothing when turned all the way

Sounds like you ran the battery down, charge or jump it with an automobile. But now, you need to find why it did not start.

Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) fuel lines and tank filter
3) check choke linkages to make sure choke is fully applied
4) check fuel solenoid (on the bottom or side of the carb) to make sure it is being activated. This will make a small click when key is turned on. It has a small plunger that uncovers the main jet, so it could be plugged.

*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
5) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) check and clean main jet ( normally is the bottom bolt holding the bowl onto the carb

I have a PoulanPro 18hp (Electrolux) Riding a new battery and it tries to turn but hits that spot on rotation that stops it..then it has to begin the rev. over again.HELP( it shaft bent?)

If it's hard to turn with the plug out I think you answered your own question.Strip it down and have a look. Perhaps a valve stuck down?

Huskee LT 4200 Lawn Tractor I had to jump my mower today and mowed for 45 minutes, turned it off, added gas, started mowing again for 30 minutes, turned it off and now it won't start, turn over or...

A couple of possibilities, either the main fuse has blown, they are normally an auto motive design and located undrt the the hood of the machine, or the start solinoid has burnt out.

well its back to the fule flow,,,i thing the fule lines and carb are blocked up and needs a strip down and a good clean up of all the jets and flote bole this sounds like fule shortage,,,if the engine is only just turning and you try to put it in gear so the cutters start to turn it loads the engine up and it stops!
you say pulling the choke out get it going!!!!! then its short of fule ,,,right!
