Hello,This is normally caused by a defective inlet needle. The inlet needle has a rubber tip, actually it's viton. With the mower sitting empty that long the viton tip is probably hard and brittle so when the float rises in the carb bowl the needle is not sealing and shutting off the fuel flow. You can try removing the float bowl and replacing the inlet needle. You can do this without removing the carb. If enough gas got into the engine you may have to change the engine oil. OR checked all the usual suspects by insuring that the battery is fully charged and will provide the starting load, the spark plug is connected and none of the safety devices like having the machine in gear or the blades engaged are causing the problem,the next place to check is the solenoid.the solenoid is usually easy accessible and is an electromagnetic switch that engages when you energize the ignition,by turning the key to the start position. If you lift the engine cowling and look to the rear of the engine you will see the solenoid. The positive (red) and negative (black) battery wires will be attached to it at heavy posts as well as some other electrical wires connected to smaller posts. First try gently tapping it with a rubber mallet.Sometimes this electromagnetically activated switch gets stuck. If that doesn't work, you can try jumping the solenoid switch. The safest way is to take your battery jumper cables and using just one of the jumper wires, connect one side to the negative post (black) on the solenoid and then touch the other side to the positive post (red) of the solenoid. Make sure your key is in the on position and the lawn mower is otherwise ready to start. Be careful that the jumper wires do not become tangled as the engine starts. Also, someone sitting in the seat to prevent any mishap is the recommended and safest procedure. thanks for using fixya, take care.

    hello,firstly,get a new spark plug and replace it with the one you are using and try to power it and see if the problem persist.you can as well follow the steps below....
    Inside the gas tank on a tube is a tiny filter and it plugs with junk, just buy a new one and put it on or you emptied the tank and put in some fresh, premium gasoline, then try to power it up.
    In addition,you can visit the site below for a more comprehensive solutions...

08 outlaw 90 no start clean carb run great 2 weeks cuts off few times start back then no start air cleaner bad clean crab no start plug drippin wet run 4 few gas hafe off


if the plug/s are wet , that is flooding and that is excessive fuel or float level , probably from a problem in the needle and seat area where the fuel supply is not being controlled
remove the needle and seat and clean all dirt and rubbish from the needle ans seat area
could come from rust and dirt in the tank so consider an inline fuel filter before the carby/s

replace the carb. You are flooding the engine because there is an internal leak that a carb kit won't fix allowing the gas to continue to flow

Will not start appears no gas


The most common reason a car will crank but not start and you smell gas is you flooded it. Too much gas to the engine causes too rich a fuel mixture and the fuel won't ignite.Click this link below for more troubleshooting :---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2012/01/car-will-not-start-and-smells-like-gas.html

While trying to start the saw the compression is so great that it is near imposible to pull the start rope ....ie won't spin fast enough to start ... new plug ,,,, new gas .....no start ,,,tired arm...


If the carb is flooding it will fill the cylinder with fuel, this will cause a hydralic lock, making it near impossible to crank the engine, remove the spark pluf, turn the ignition off, crank the engine, if fuel pours out of the plug hole then it is well flooded, you will need to get a pressure test on the carb to check the needle is not leaking, this will be the quickest way to check the carb.

19e412-0134-01 won't start. gas leaks out air


The float is stuck on the carb flooding the engine and leaking gas out of air filter. Remove the float bowl after the gas is turned of or drained. Thoroughly clean carb And bowl with carb cleaner. Reove the float {very carefully} if it is copper, shake it. If you here fuel in it then it is no good. If not then clean everything and reassemble. If it needs to be replaced, most small engine repair shops will have your parts.

It is very easy to flood this item mind you its easy to flood all petrol trimmers. If plug is wet simply turn the switch to off and pull cord at least 15 times you should get the engine to start coughing keep pull cord but do not turn the petrol on do not prime it either. It should catch. If it does not push the primer once and pull cord
