How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

Your piston cylinder is partially full of oil and/or gas. Take the spark plug out and pull the rope four or five times to blow everything out of the cylinder. If it's still hard to pull over with the plug out check the oil level in the crank case to see if it filled with gas while the mower was on its side. Make sure the plug is dry and clean and reinstall it. When it starts it's going to smoke a lot until it cleans out the cylinder.

I just had my mower out and it ran on the first run in 3 weeks


I typically do 6 things in this situation:

1. Verify that the gas tank is full and closed
2. Verify that the oil is filled to the "full line"
3. Remove and inspect air filter clean/replace if necessary
4. Remove and inspect spark plug clean/replace as neccesary
5. Apply warm air to engine block via hair dryer at the spark plug for 5 minutes and attempt to restart
6. If that doesn't work allow the mower to "rest" for 30 minutes and repeat step 5.

Lawnmower wont start


Are you getting spark first of all. If you are getting spark do you have good gas? If you have good gas most likely your carb needs some attention maybe you had some old gas sitting in there and something inside is gummed up it might need cleaning.

My lawn mower doesn't start and when it does, smoke comes out of exhaust


you may need to change the oil and/or empty the old gas and replace it with new.

This thing happens when you don't take care of your lawn mower for too long.
