Do you have fresh gas in it? If not drain it and put fresh in it. Also the carburator could have gotten gummed up while in storage. Try some carburator cleaner from your local auto parts store
Hope this helps

SOURCE: My lawn push mower will

Check to make sure you are getting fire/spark at the plug, if so then do the following:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

SOURCE: Mower starts after priming, then quits. new

Evan though you cleaned the bowl, the float isn't "floating" correct in the bowl to raise the needle for gas to flow into the carb. The float and needle can be replaced. When you prime an engine the gas shoots straight to the carb. As when the engine is running the floating goes up and down to raise the needle for gas to flow.

Zero turn mower is sputtering and dies


Check everything is clean. Check the air filter is clean, check that the engine cooling fan, cutting blades and cutting deck are free of grass. Check all the drive belt pulleys to ensure accumulated grass is not jamming anything. Check the fuel filler cap is clean and the breather hole works.

Toro Mower wont stay running


The main reason why a mower starts up and then cuts off after a short period of time is because of poor air flow to the carburetor and is most likely a blockage somewhere.

First you should try this. Remove gas cap and filter then place a really thick rag over the top of the carb where the filter was and either blow into the gas tank or wrap a rag around a tapered air chuck and then place the air chuck in the gas tank (with rag fitting snug around chuck) blast it a few times and listen for bubbling, if it's bubbles then you have removed the blockage..
Take the carb off of the mower and clean the carb / jets with a thin piece of wire.
Be sure to clean the gas tank completely and the fuel line.
Check the oil level, some mowers have a low-level oil shut off.
Change the plug out with one thst is reccomended for your engine.
I wouldn't reccomend running the mower without the filter, that causes dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and tank.

This should fix the problem, if it don't you should find a lawn mower repair service.

I hope this helps.

My lawn mower will start then it will die after a few seconds, what could be the problem


If the mower was tipped it is quite possible oil from the engine has traveled up the breather and soaked the air filter in oil, this would richen the engine up and stop it running, remove the air filter and check for oil saturation.

You may have to replace the carb.But before you do.Check the the fuel line.There is a small screen in the carb,it may be clogged.Inside the tank is a small cylindrical filter,make sure it is good.Break the fuel line at the in line filter,to make sure gas is getting to there,if it is the problem is in the carb.
