Recheck spark. You probably have a heat stressed coil.

The break you took gave the mower enough time to heat soak the coil causing it to fail.

Replacement coils are relatively inexpensive and if you have basic mechanical skills you can probably do it yourself if you want to.

Intermittant no spark. Cruising along and shuts off like someone flipped a kill switch


Gotta be either fuel, fire, compression or timing, so next time it dies, spray a little starting fluid into the intake, if it starts right back up -fuel problem-probably stopped up fuel filter, bad fuel pump. If not, remove a spark plug wire and attach old spark plug , lay it on a grounded metal part of the engine or frame , have someone try to start it, watch to see if the plug is firing.

24a-020d700 won't start, new gas & replaced air filter


Hi
First you need to check for spark at the plug if you have spark remove plug put a tea spoon full of gas in the plug hole reinstall the plug and try to start. If it starts for a sec the carb or fuel line is clogged and needs to be cleaned.

Yard machine ym26ss straight shaft trimmer. New gas,


Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
Chain Saws:
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
Remove Carburetor
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
