Question about Tecumseh Lawn Boy Push Mowers Insight Silver Powered Series - Sens - A - Speed Walk Behind Mower - 10685

Open Question

I have a Lawn-Boy model: 10682 Tecumseh engine model : LV148EA/LV195EA Engine will not start. Don't think it's getting fire to the plug. It has a safety switch where the bag attaches. It seems to be ok. Shear pin looks good on flywheel. Air filter new. Gas is new. Primer bulb is good and puts gas on the spark plug. Tried starter fluid and still won't fire. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: can you run your lawn boy mowers without the

Yes you can. The only reason small engines have the primer button/bulb is to get gas to the carburator to make it easier to start it. If your mower starts OK without using the primer bulb you will not harm the mower.

SOURCE: i changed oil, blade, spark

Hi


Make sure the blade and shaft can easily be moved by hand. First, remove the spark plug wire from the plug. Reach under the mower and see if the blade will turn or if something is stuck between the blade and the mower. Also remember that you have to hold the safety bar when you are starting the mower or the engine won't turn. It is possible that the cable from the safety bar to the engine brake has come loose. Follow the cable from the safety bar to the engine and make sure it is working.Also check whether the line from the gas tank to the engine is crimped?

I have lawn boy mower Model 10682. Everythng works very well on it, except occasionally the engine will reeve up to a very high rate. Only happens when not cutting.


Sounds like you may have a air leak on your intake manifold. Check all the manifold to carb bolts and manifold to cylinder bolts.

After about 15 to 30 minutes, engine starts pinging (for a few seconds) then dies


Not familiar with tecumseh lawn boy. Lawn boys I worked on were 2 stroke, if this is the case the crank seal is sucking air after engine warms up. New seal would fix. If you can't do it you're self may not be economically worth it.

Lawn Boy mower will not start. New gas and plug.


Is the plug getting wet? if not, try introducing fuel to the intake and attempt to start it again, the interlock on the handle works by killing the ignition fire and applying a brake to the flywheel, this should be a Tecumseh engine, carb troubles are quite prevalent on these, by substituting fuel to the intake you are acting as the fuel supply, if it starts and runs briefly you have confirmed a fuel system issue

Engine will not start, no spark


Try taking of the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Then check the spark plug wire for rust (clean if any). Try replacing the spark plug if it is old.

Let me know if this helps.
