Check to see if there is water in your fuel tank or carburetor fuel bowl and clean....check float and needle in carburetor to make sure they are working properly.....remove plug and clean, remove all traces of carbon or gummy residue, re-attach plug wire and ground base of plug to cylinder head...pull start handle a couple of times to see if you have spark... if not you may need a new magneto or points and condenser...if spark is good (blue spark) re-install plug and prime the carb with about a tablespoonful of fuel...pull start handle and mower should run...if it only runs for a few seconds and may have to rebuild the carburetor. also remove the muffler and check to see that the exhaust ports are not full of carbon. Good luck !!! ;-D

When a battery will not start a vehicle, it tends to be in the circumstances most embarrassing and frustrating, a school run by a meeting or even work urgently. Call for help from vehicles is not always an option and even if it may take some time to arrive. Rather than leave it to chance, many drivers now carry 85wh apple A1172 Charger for use in such peril.

Probably not the solenoid they usually work or they don't. Slow cranking could be due to weak battery or bad connections, check those. If all is ok starter motor could be bad. Always check simplest first.

Lawn mower fires but doesn't wanna run

You may have to inspect the woodruff key that is possibly worn out in the groove of the main shaft, To inspect this key way devise you need to remove the top off the mower probably 4 phillips screws off the plastic housing comes dont forget to pull out the oil stick, then removethe pull chord assembly in one piece 3 rivets need to be drilled out and reinstalled with new ones from Ace hardware when done, then remove the 3/4" nut...tap the shaft not to hard to loosen the flywheel and check to see that the keyway(woodruff pin) is worn out, go to a hardware store with the old one and buy a replacement reinstall everything and mower should be good to go.

If you have spark and gas, it should start. The plug shouldn't be wet with gas, adjust the carbuerator fuel flow screw to reduce fuel to the engine. Use full choke to get it started
