Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the vertical intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.

My snapper hi-vac niwer us hard to start. I can't pull hard enough to get it to start. It uses straight gas, not mixed with oil.


If you are having problems starting your mower you shouldcheck 3 things, air, fuel and spark.

Fuel: check to make sure you are full of good quality fuel, try to start theengine several times then take out the spark plug and it should look wet. If its not wet then you aren't getting fuel into the engine.

Air: remove and clean the air filter with clean gasoline if its made offoam. If its made of paper then you should buy a new one from a localauto parts or hardware store.

Spark: disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold thewire close to the engine block. Try to start the engine and watch for aspark to jump between the end of the wire and the engine block. If itdoesn't then either the wire is bad or the ignition coil is bad.

Sears lawnmower model 917387272


Unless someone has modified it, there is no fuel filter. The fuel tank is coupled direct to the carburetor by a short piece of hose.
Your running problem is most likely due to (dirt and/or moisture) contaminated fuel in the float bowl. You will need to remove the float bowl and clean it out and clean the carburetor main jet at the same time

Lawnmower starts but won't continue to run


if you are getting no fuel to the plug you either have a stuck float, plugged fuel line or filter. does the gas reach the carb bowl? does the mower have a fuel pump? if so the diaphram might be bad.

My Toro revs up and down and is shutting down. New sparkplug, new air filter


Two things to check: 1) A restricted fuel filter would cause this problem. 2) Debris in the carburetor. My lawnmower would start, rev a little bit, then die. I could keep it going with the primer pump. The problem was the main jet in the carb was obstructed. The solution was easy since there was a plug on the bottom of the carb which provided access to the main jet. I removed the plug then removed the jet with a 6mm wrench. I cleaned it with carb cleaner and re-assembled. Ran great after that.

Good luck,

Lawnmower starts but won't run-replaced airfilter and plug cleaned carb


If it is starting and not continuing to run it still sounds as though something is blocking the fuel flow. If the carb has been cleaned out, literally torn down and the needles cleaned so that no small debris is clogging them, check the fuel tank and lines for anything that could be restricting the flow to the engine. Remember that it's recommended that you replace the fuel line (cheap fix) when you dismantle the carb. Removing the line breaks off small pieces of the rubber in a worn line, which can re-block a freshly cleaned carb.

I have a lawnmower with a BSA 3.5 engine that I cannot start, the problem seems to be no spark at the spark plug. As I have never worked on a lawnmower I have no idea what generates the spark on...


Test for spark by placing a screwdriver into the spark plug wire and holding it close to a bolt on the engine. should see a spark (blue). If not, problem is likely the armature (coil). The coil is located under the engine shroud and held in place by two bolts. If you replace this part, (normally $30 to $40) you must ensure a proper air gap. Auto parts stores have inexpensive repair manuals to help.
