Hard to mow a lawn pulling the starter cord all the time,lol,,,ok, no spark...you have an engine control bar at top of handle, cable runs from it to engine brake, and this is also engine kill switch. sounds like this cable has stretched. this cable controls engine brake and also kills the spark. you have two problems, and this controls both.

take the top cover off the engine. you will see the coil on top there. unplug the wire that plugs into it. put the cover back on and try to start it. if it starts it is not the coil. try a different spark plug first. pull the cord with the plug out to get all the gas out of the engine.

LawnBoy Silver Series 6.5hp (manual start) self-propelled. Spark Plug does not have spark. Took plug out, clamped brake bar and held plug on engine for ground in plug boot. What can I do to get spark back?...


Disconnect small wire at ignition module. Then check for spark. If no spark, replace ignition module. If there is spark, then there is a short in the kill wire or engine control cable is not adjusted correctly.

Self propel always engaged


you may have lost the spring that pulls the transmission drive belt down or have the cable adjuster too tight.word of caution here, the cable goes thru the engagement lever and if you overtighten it the lever will crack or break. if it does the complete transmission will have to be replaced.seems they dont make the lever avalible seperate.

Self Propelled mower quit self propelling


you probaly have a broken gear or engagment lever. the part the cable goes through before the cable goes thru the deck. you also could have sheared a pin or the plastic gear that drives it.

I have a poulan pro self propelled lawn mower that won't start. It ran fine this morning, but after I took a break and went back outside to finish mowing, it wouldn't start. It sounds like it won't...


You need to check a few things. The spark first, you need to check if it is running correctly, does it have spark, by doing this: take out the spark, put it against a metal surface and pull the pull start if it spark, your good if not you need a new spark plug. Clean out your airfiilter it migth help too. Buy some carb and choke cleaner squirt it up theough the airfilter hole, and start the engine, this will clen the carb. yOU MIGHT NEED TO TAKE OUT THE CARB AND CLENA I OUT THROUGHOULY!!! Try that and it whould work after all these steps!


This hapened on my mower and it turned u that the spark pug was too bigfor the motor and the valves were totally broke!!!Not good...
