SOURCE: Yard Machines - Won't shift into gear

The problem most likely is the shaft on which the interlock slides back and forth on inside the transmission. The yardmachines have a continous spinning shaft which ends in a bevel gear. The is an interlock plate which is connected to the Forward Reverse shift lever, this plate slides back and forth and either engages the forward gear or the backward gear. This shaft is most likely galled up, preventing everything from sliding the way it needs to. This is not a difficult thing to fix if you are somewhat mechanical. Disassemble the transmission and check if everything slides

You should be able to remove the old one with a screw driver or needle nose pliers. The new one should have a new gasket with it.

SOURCE: lawn mower keeps dying

Remove gas cap. If mower now runs without stalling, your problem is the vent in the gas cap is blocked. Replace the cap. Common problem!

SOURCE: Webb Diplomat 350 Petrol Lawn Mower stops running 10 minutes

The 'DIPLOMAT' series of WEBBs is bad news, its NOT a WEBB! Webb were swallowed by qualcast-atco-suffolk, who dunped Webbs tooling, & dressed up punches & commodores in thin disguises, dumped the briggs & stratten engine for their own alloy job, & charged a rip off premium for the Webb decals!
The qualcast suffolk alloy engine suffers from a WIPAC electronic ignition unit. As it gets old, it fails, sometimes completely, sometimes as it warms up. Once cool, it works for a while again.
Not too hard to replace, but hard on the wallet, £69 genuine, £40 fake! On the whole its not too bad an engine if cared for & oil changed often. better to look on ebay for a cheap used HONDA engine & transplant! R-E-L-I-A-B-L-E !............I did! ( £35 honda gc series, 5,5hp! )

SOURCE: yard machine lawn mower won't start

Several questions here...

1. Is the oil serviced to the full mark?
The oil level sensor can cause a no spark condition because it grounds the ignition.
2. Is there spark at the spark plug? You can remove the spark plug and test for spark but if the plug is internally grounded it will show spark when removed but if it is installed it can still be defective. (Spark Plugs are cheap replace it)
3. Is the handle safety cable loose even when depressed? A bad safety cable or an improper cable adjustment can also cause a lack of spark.
4. Do you note gas on the spark plug or is it very dry? If the spark plug is dry try adding a splash of gas into the cylinder via the spark plug hole and see if you get a temporary / momentary start. If you do then you have either a fuel supply or carb problem.
Make sure the fuel selector is in the ON position.
5. If you suspect a fuel problem disconnect the tank feed line to the carb and see if there is fuel flow from the tank, No fuel flow no start.... then problem in the gas tank or supply line.

I will post this as a solution but will watch for any responses and continue to assist you if needed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

You probably have in your area a number of small engine repair shops. You will have to get on the phone and start calling around for a used mower deck. They usually have many old mowers in there yards. If you decide you only want new it could be very costly. GOOD LUCK.

How old is this lawn mower, and have you replaced the spark plug recently?

Also, check to make sure the air filter is not clogged, preventing the engine from breathing.
