Make sure unit has oil.some of them have low oil switch which will not let it run or start usually if it has triggered the low oil switch to open you have to reset it manually by pushing it in.also check that you have turned on the fuel .

Will not start but turns over


Fuel or spark plug trouble could be a cause for an engine not starting. Check for spark plug spark. Remove spark plug wire and see if the wire makes a spark on engine when spark plug wire is energized. Do not tounch engine or come in contact so that you are shocked when testing for spark plug action. Check fuel pump to see if fuel is being supplied. Disconnect fuel line and place the fuel line inside a container to capture fuel. Do not cause a fire from loss of control of fuel line during trouble shooting.

Check for spark at spark plugs then check fuel and fuel filter .

Troubleshooting a small Petrol engine that won't start requires a series of short tests and the process of elimination.
Understanding the principles of how a small engine operates is helpful but not necessary.
Proper disposal of hazardous liquids will be required.
The knowledge gained in the performance of this procedure can be applied to many different types and sizes of internal combustion engines.
The average weekend mechanic can complete the process in about an hour.
Put on the safety glasses.
Remove the gas cap and check that there is gas in the fuel tank.
Look at the inline gas cutoff valve located below the gas tank on the fuel line and make sure it is in the on position, with the knob turned straight in line with the fuel line.
Look at the spark plug and check that the wire is securely plugged onto the plug.
Try to turn the spark plug by hand and make sure it is screwed firmly into the hole.
Look at the ground strap by the spark plug and make sure it is not touching the spark plug.
Look at the kill switch located by the controls and make sure it is in the run position.


Remove the air filter by unsnapping its box-like cover or removing the wing nut that holds it onto the carburetor.
Lift the air filter out of the holder and set it aside.
Spray a shot of starting fluid from the aerosol can into the empty air filter area of the carburetor and try to start the engine.
Let the engine run about 30 seconds or until it dies.

Eliminate the electrical system as the cause of the problem if the engine started right up, ran a few moments, and quit.
Remove the gas line from the carburetor by loosening its hose clamp with the screwdriver kit.
Hold the fuel line over the clear glass container and let some gas run into it.
Look at the gas, checking for water and impurities.

Drain the gas tank if the gas looked impure.
Remove the gas filter from the fuel line by loosening its hose clamps with the screwdriver kit.
Replace the gas filter with a new one if the gas did not run into the glass at a rapid pace.
Reinstall the gas line and gas filter.
Fill the gas tank with new gas.

Find a small drain bolt located on the very bottom middle of the carburetor.
Place a small container that gas won't melt under it and remove it with the wrench kit.
Let the old gas drain out of the bottom until the new gas starts to flow out. Screw the drain bolt back into the bottom of the carburetor.

Clean up any spilled gas off the motor and elsewhere with the shop rag.
Place the rag in the metal bucket a safe distance from the work area.
Clean the air filter with warm, soapy water if it is the spongy type, or replace it with a new one.
Install the air filter. Start the engine.

Unplug the spark plug wire from the spark plug if the engine did not start.
Hold the insulated part of the spark plug wire with one hand and place the bare part about 1/4 inch away from the top of the spark plug.

Try to start the engine and watch for a spark between the wire and the plug. Replace the spark plug wire with a new one if it shocked you through the insulation.
Remove the spark plug using the spark plug wrench and replace it with a new one if there was a spark.
Try to start the engine. Let the engine run until it performs smoothly.

Do not do anything else if there was no spark, as the trouble is inside the internal workings of the engine and requires professional repair and tools.

My ryobi x430 will not start. Replace spark plug and still won't start


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vaccum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evoporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replaceing gaskets or fuel line if necessory.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where thay want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow untail machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding aginst engine to chech spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, 11

I just put a new carb on my 17.5 hp lawn tractor .... it starts and runs great then after about 2 minutes it cut out .... and won't start for a few minutes .... spark is good ...... any ideas? it is...


It is possible that the fuel line is too close to the engine and the fuel flashes to vapor in the fuel line causing vapor lock. I recommend adjusting the fuel line if posible, and retry. Maybe replace that section of fuel line.

The other possibility is the ignition coil is going bad. You can check it by running the engine and when it stops, quickly remove the spark plug, caution hot. Put plug back into the wire and ground the spark plug and try to turn over the engine with the key start, if good spark, then the problem is likely the other,

I mentioned the fuel line first, because you said that you had been working with the carburetor, and the fuel line may be moved or a little shorter.

I hope this helps you get going soon.

I have a 1997 xl custom that will not hold a charge. will not start just turns over.


If the engine is turning over but won't start, your battery is fine. You've either got a fuel problem or an ignition problem Take the spark plugs out of the heads and put them back into the spark plug wires. Lay the plugs on the heads so that they are grounded against the engine. Turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the spark plugs to see if you have spark to the plugs. Don't get your face too close to the spark plug holes as a lot of air will blow out of them. If you do have spark, put the spark plugs back in the heads and take the air filter cover and element off of the carb. Look just inside the mouth of the carb and you'll see a brass nozzle standing up. With the engine OFF, crank the throttle grip to the wide open position. You should see a good stream of fuel squirt out of the nozzle into the carb. If not, there is no fuel in the carb. Pull the fuel line off the petcock. Turn the igniton switch on and spin the engine and watch for a good flow of fuel out of the petcock. If you don't have any fuel flowing out of the petcock, replace the petcock. You can either drain the fuel from the tank or take the tank off the bike to replace it.

Good Luck

Was riding bike and was stopped at a red light when it made a loud noise and died, now it won't start. The engine cranks and turns over but won't start.


You didn't say what year and model the bike was but on any four stroke engine, you must have three things for the engine to run. You need fuel, spark, and compression. The easy one to check is the fuel. Take your air filter off and make sure you're getting fuel to the engine. Then, check your spark. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs in the head and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Ground the plugs against the engine, turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. Watch the plugs to see if you have spark. The next test is compression. With the engine cold, remove the spark plugs. If you have a compression gauge, connect it to one of the heads and spin the engine over with the starter. If you don't have a gauge, simply put your finger over the spark plug hole. Turn the throttle wide open and press the start button. You should show about a hundred pounds of compression if you have a gauge or the compression should blow your finger off the hole with a good deal of force if you're checking it that way. If you have all three of these and they're timed correctly, the engine should run. If the engine won't run, find out which of the three elements is missing and work from there.

Good Luck

John Deere GT263 wont start. Wont even fire, turns over OK


DO you have spark?? To check for spark pull spark plug out. With the spark plug connected lay the spark plug on the block of the engine( something metal) and try to start the engine.waych for aspark as the engie is turning over. Does it spark?? If not check the safty switches - Break petal, seat,blade engagemment switch. Also check the coil/magneto.(without the right tester for goil ) you will have to replace the goil. A little pricey. If you have spsrk, the problem is in the fuel system. Is there gas in the tank? Does the tractor have a fuel shut off in the gass line? Is it open?

Close the fuel shut off valve or crimp the fuel line with vice grips or some type of locking plyers. Remove the carborator bowel. Is there gas in it? Yes, Carborator needs cleaning. No, open the fuel line and see if fuel flows out of line. If not check and see if obstruction on line or tank.

Most importantly is the spark/ ignition system. mainly the safty switches and the coil/magneto. If any ofthe safties are open you will not get ANY spark. If the switches are working correctly I suspect it will be the the coil.

Rolls over wont start


could be a number of things......engines need spark fuell and air to run.....one of three in your case is not working correctly
try disconnecting fuel line from engine side of feul sending unit and turn over ....get a bucket it could get messy....if you see fuel then check spark...to check spark leave fuel disconnected....and pull out one plugs leave wire on plug and touch plug threads to ground (anyground..eg..alternator bracket)use vice grips but not too tight ..then turn it over again and see if plug sparks......if spark and fuel are present ....then ur into crank sensors or cam sensors these determine when spark is present.....
