Remove the plug and lead, touch it against the body of the engine and check there is a spark when you pull the starter rope. You may need an assistant to help keep the plug stay in contact with the engine (make sure they don't touch any metal!).
The float bowl acts like a toilet cistern keeping the fuel at a constant level. Remove the float bowl and check that gas flows freely into it and stops when the float is pushed upwards. If fuel doesn't flow, the inlet valve may be blocked due to a blocked filter. If the fuel doesn't shut off, this could flood the carburetor.

Why wont that lawn mower start?

Buy a can of engine starter (ether). Prime engine, spray a little ether into the carburator (air filter) and pull start.Works great.

Mower starts but if it stops then it will not start for the rest of the day????

Mowing the lawn is a necessary chore throughout the growing season. It prevents your landscape from looking unkempt and keeps your home looking nice and neat. How well your lawnmower works can make a huge difference in how you perceive this task. If the mower runs well and does what it is supposed to, then the job might not seem too onerous, but if your mower stops every time it gets hot, then it can turn a job that should only take a little while into an all-day affair. There are a few reasons why your lawnmower might stall after warming up

My 900 craftsman front tin tiller will not start - no spark. Ran great all last season, but after getting it ready for thisd spring - changed oil, cleaned plug, changes fule -- it will not start.

Sounds like you have a bad coil. You can try cleaning the rust and stuff off the magnet on your flywheel and see if it will start then and if not then your gonna have to buy another coil they shouldn't be to much.

I have a craftsman lawnmower lt 2000 42 deck which i tunded up last year and replaced the battery. this season i took out the battry and stored it in my garage. I recharged the battery and put it back in...

Try tracing the positive battery cable from the positive side to the solenoid
to make sure those connections are clean and tight. Then from the solenoid to the starter. Clean and tight. Last of all please check the Ground to frame connection.

Craftsman eager-1 lawnmower will not start

Hi, The first thing I always check for is fresh fuel (less than a couple of months old) old unleaded may well be fine in your car but low compression engines fitted to garden equipment need fresh fuel. next thing to check is that the choke flap is closing fully, dont rely on the position of the control lever, remove the airfilter cover and see that the flap is fully closed, if it's cracked open just a little bit it will stop engine starting ( unless the filter is really dirty) another thing to check is that the blade is tightly secured, on direct drive mowers the blade acts as a flywheel. did you hit an obstruction the last time you used it, if you did you may have sheared the flywheel key(poor spark on points ignition or good spark but timing out of sync on electronic ignition. hope this helps, regards Tony (England UK)

Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start

I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks
