If it hasn't been started for a couple of years, then the carb could be stuck. Try putting a small amount of gasoline into the cylinder after removing the spark plug. Reinstall spark plug and connect spark plug wire, and attempt to start. If it does, then it is a plugged carburetor.

Also, check for spark when pulling the starter rope with a tool designed to show spark between the spark plug wire and ground. Sometimes people use a screwdriver connected to the spark plug wire and distanced about 1/4" away from the engine block or other ground.


Hope this helps.

    What do I do if the carburator is plugged

    usually on a carburetor that old, I would rebuild it.



    Spraying the carburetor down with cleaner sometimes helps, but

    getting the gum out of the jets can be tough after that amount of time.



  • whart847 Jul 10, 2010

    And what is involved in rebuilding it. Do i need to bring to a repair shop?

  • Duane Wong
    Duane Wong Jul 10, 2010

    I would take it to a repair shop to have it done if you feel uncomfortable working with gasoline

    and small plastic and metal parts.



    It involves changing the float (plastic), adjusting it, and replacing the jets, and using an air compressor to blow out the orifices.



    Cleanliness is paramount, since any grit or dirt left behind can mean the carburetor won't function correctly.



    Good luck on his repair.

Lawnmower wont start after running then stopped for short period


It should be. The fuel line is under the tank and runs to the carburetor. Make sure you use the fuel shut off, if you have one, or drain gas before you play with the line. Once you find the line disconnect it from the carb and drain any remaining fuel. Then clean with a pipe cleaner and reattach. That should help.

Lawnmower starts and dies... where is the main jet for the carb?


try cleaning the air filter, then 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 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.

Honda 4 cycle cult wont start. New gas primer primes new spark plug. Won't fire.


Check the start switch and the start switch line. If not broken, check the choke switch and try different settings to start it. Last check the gas line for any cracks. This tiller can be easily be flooded when pushing the prime button..

I can't start my honda lawnmower, checked the oil, put new gas use choke,it gives litle sound but not enough to start

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.

Honda gas powered lawn mower will not start


If it sat for years then its likely a fuel problem. Verify this by spraying a prime in the carb and trying to start it. If the unit starts then its a fuel problem. I would drain the tank and replace with fresh fuel, remove the carb and clean it.

Buy a can of engine starter (ether). Prime engine, spray a little ether into the carburator (air filter) and pull start.Works great.
