Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

    Say its a self propelled Poulan Pro Briggs and Stratton engine 625 series, model PR625Y22RKP. It wont turn over now, but when it did run it sputtered, ran for 10-15 minutes before it sputtered and died. Cleaned the carb, new air filter, gas, oil, blade and spark plug. If thats the case then whats the problem???

22' snapper walk behind mowewont start .cleaned spark plug and still wont start .swapped spark plugs from another mower that does work and the other mower starts with the snapper mower's spark plug .


You need several things for a running internal combustion engine:
  • Air
  • Spark (to start)
  • Fuel
  • Compression
  • Lubrication
  • Exhaust.
You've shown that you have a workable spark plug so far. Going from the above, consider as well
  • Fuel. Bad / old / contaminated fuel. Clogged fuel filter. If it's a motor that needs gas/oil mix, does your gas have the right oil mix?
  • Air: Dirty, clogged air filter or air inlet.
  • Spark. Is any electricity making it to that proven-workable spark plug?
  • Compression. For this one, the most likely problem (other than a toss-the-engine thing like a broken piston) would be if the spark plug is not tightened into the mount hole, allowing the air to leak out rather than compress.
  • Exhaust. Most lawn mowers will have a spark arrestor on the exhaust to make sure you don't set a dry yard on fire with your exhaust. It's often overlooked in diagnosing two-stroke engines. Make sure it's not clogged or blocked.
  • Lubrication. Is there oil of the right type, and up to a proper level on the dipstick. No oil equals way too much friction in the engine.
Good Luck!

Hi I did a tune up ,changed and checked every thing I done ..too I changed the oil ,oil filter ,gas filter air filter ,got a new battery changed the plugs there new too...even a new belt new key ...but...


Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.

Toro ride on wont start


Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.

How to fix a 3.5 lawn mower?


HELLO,
You can fix these yourself, all you have to do is to follow the instructions below,
1 Remove the spark plug lead from the spark plug and move away from cylinder head. Always do this before attempting any repairs to a lawnmower.
2 If your lawnmower is a "four stroke" mower (separate gasoline and oil), tip the mower so that the spark plug is pointing skyward. Never tip it on its side with the spark plug to the ground.
3 If your lawnmower is "2 stroke" (oil and gasoline mixed) turn off fuel tap. You can tip a two stroke mower any way that is suitable to you.
4 To change a blade, or blade disc, it is often easier to remove the spark plug and feed a length of string into the cylinder head to 'lock' the piston while trying to un-do the blade bolt(s).
5 Check the motor's "air filter" while doing this sort of maintenance as a dirty or clogged air filter will affect engine performance and increase fuel consumption of your mower. Symptoms of a clogged air filter include inability to start, starting and quickly stopping after several sputters, or a weak idle. You may also see oily or smoky exhaust.
6 If your mower is a "four stroke" model, change the oil at least once a year. When it is tipped over with the spark plug in the air, is a good time to remove the "oil fill" plug and drain oil into an old ice-cream container for recycling.


I hope this will help to solve the problem.....

It wont start. Fuels good. Gets a spark, although plug looks oily. Air filter was dirty, have new one. Still wont start with filter off. Tried starter fluid. Manual says maybe excess oil in engine. If so,...


If you have no sign of life with starter fluid, there's no spark in the cylinder.

If the plug is oily, it may spark in free air, but not under compression. Try a new plug first.

Excess oil won't prevent the engine from starting, but it will spew oil everywhere if it's overfilled. Just check the level with the dipstick (on level ground), and pour any excess out of the filler tube.

Lawn mower cranck but wont start...


Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.

Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

Lawn mower will not start


check gas tank with light is there dirt in tank? did you change fuel filter? is there spark at the spark plug? try a 2 second spurt of starting fluid in carburetor and crank does it fire?if it does then you most likely need to clean carburetor with carburetor cleaning spray, flush fuel lines with spray and swap fuel filter.
