The carburetor jets are plugged. Complete disassembly & soaking in carburetor cleaner then re install parts after rinsing off & drying them. Make sure all ports are open. Torch tip cleaner is helpful.

Air is not getting into the engine, clean the air filter. Or it may be due to a fuel blockage in the pipe. I would clean the air filter and the carberator.
First try just the air filter, you may just get away with it ey! Won't be too much work.

Take care!

SOURCE: My mtd(11A-54MC552) lawnmower won't start. changed:

The Flywheel has a brake and switch assembly on that is item 8 of this link: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/mtd-11a54mc006-2009-push-walkbehind-mower-parts-c-20039_20100_133234_21459.html#part_343018

The switch is made or unmade by the position of the user safety bar on the handle. When the cable between the handle and the flywheel safety brake wears or needs adjustment the safety switch continually grounds the ignition so there is no spark. You may have to adjust the user safety bar cable at the engine flywheel brake switch area by losending the mount screw and moving the cable jacket further away from the switch. Then re-tighten the mounting screw.

If this is the first start of the season you may have to remove the carb float bowl as shown on the bottom of item 14 the above link to clean out the jet orifice in the threaded area of the carb. Make sure you remove all debris in the carb float bowl area. You should also have fuel flow anytime the float is positioned below horizontal.

If none of the above corrects the problem respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I got a Honda mantis rototiller,gx25 model 4 stroke,its got a new carb../ plug / gas / oil / fuel filter / ignition switch, its getting gas to carb/ getting spark but it wont start up .....help me..


If you have proper timing, compression, gas and a spark, the engine should fire/run.
Have you tried a spritz of starter fluid to see if it fires ?
The flywheel could have sheared the key and affected timing.
About the last thing I can think of is valve adjustment, specifically the intake valve, although I think it would be difficult to pull the crank rope if that's the problem.

MTD lawn mower won't stay running.


Did you empty the carb bowl and clean out any old fuel & contaminants? This is the most effective way to determine fuel issues. It also gives you the opportunity to remove all old fuel from the fuel lines, filter, & drain the tank bone dry. You may have already introduced water from your previous efforts so take out the plug & pull the cord a few times to dry out the cylinder. Next start the first time with starter fluid since you may still have contaminants in the primer system. In the future use only non-ethanol fuel, a marine grade stabilizer such as "Sea Foam" and replace all fuel every spring. Fuel begins to varnish and break down after 1 month unless stabilizer is used. Ethanol gas absorb water from the surrounding air in about 2 months & only gets worse.

I inherited an MTD front tine 5hp rotto-tilleran woner. I have no idea about model number. I have not yet found an owner's manual, operation guide, etc. There is no model or serial number anywhere. ...


What to remember when working on these gas engines you have to have fuel spark and air usually on these small engines there is a screen in the bottom of the gas tank that gets clogged up check out the spark plug and take the air filter off and wash it in warm water with dawn dish detergent let squeeze all the water out of the filter and let it dry out a day or so hope this helps Merry Christmas
