Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, 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.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also 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.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Snapper mower 331416kue won't start


Hello,

You can try buy a new spark plug and replace it with the old one.
I had the same problem!
You just have to keep pulling until it catches!
Or maybe it's the carburetor that needs to be replaced!
I had the same problem wih my scooter.
I just changed the carburetor and it worked fine :)

Lawn mower will not start. I changed spark plug, gas is in the mower and oil, mower still does not run


If your mower will start when you prime it, and then it dies right away, you have a carberator pluged. If after primeing the mower and it will not even start for a few seconds, you have lost spark. If you have no spark, this can be cause by two things. First, the magnito could have gone back, but this dosen't happen to often, but it can happen. First, check to see that the cable from the brake handle has not stretched. This controls engine brake and its also the kill switch, which kills the spark. Get acess to your engine brake, and you will find a wire connected to a tab. Remove this wire and try to start the mower. If it starts, replace the control cable. If it dosen't start, hook the wire back up and replace the magnito. I hope this is of some help

Mower was working fine then engine coughed and died. Plenty of fuel but can't get it started again. Any suggestions?


Ckeck the spark plug cable and make sure it is tight on the plug. You did not say what kind of mower but some have low oil shutdowns. Make sure the oil is up to the full mark. If neither of these items solve the problem check the spark. If there is good spark remove the air cleaner and squirt some gas into the carbburator and try to start. If it runs then dies you know it is a fuel problem.

My mower starts and runs great when cold but dies when hot. It will restart but won't stay running until it cools off again.


How old is your mower ? Sounds like points and condensor if older model ,or ignition module if its newer , points tend to stick together when they get old causing no spark at plug when they cool they come appart allowing it to spark again , module is sort of the same except you have no way of replacing points you have to replace module .
