Mower fires but cuts out after 2 seconds

I bought this ALBA mower on E-bay last year. Difficult to start but used twice in '09 and ran OK. This year used once thwn had problems starting. Fires and runs for about 2 seconds before cutting out. Local mower repairer says they have tried everything but have made no difference. What might be the problem and is it likely to be fixable ? I believe the engine etc is Chinese and there are no parts available.

It sounds as though is not getting fuel to the engine. I would replace the mower repair place, it is likely it needs the fuel system from tank to carb cleaned and demineraized/waterized rather than new parts.

Need to do anything special after mower emptied of gas?


You probably have a dirty fuel jet. If there is a fuel cup on the bottom of your carb take it off and clean it as well as the fuel jet. when you empty the tank you stirred up the dirt in the tank bottom.

It sounds like you have an ign. wire grounded or your ign switch has a short in it. Also remove the cover on your starter drive to be sure it has released.

The last time I used the mower, it was running fine then cut off while I was mowing. I haven't been able to get it restarted. I changed the spark plug, filled the gas tank and added oil. It still will not...


Maybe the ignition module is gone bad. It helps fire the spark plug to make the motor to run. Also if it has a stop cable on it make sure the cable pulls back far enough to pull the flywheel brake off the flywheel.
If your mower was running then quit, it sounds like the ignition module bad.

I posted same problem as this couple days ago. Took mower to shop. The governor spring (located just under the air filter) had come off. So glad it was something so minor!
