Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

My MTD Sprinto was happily mowing away until i stopped to empty the grassbox. When i returned, it would not start. It has a new battery which reads 11.97 volts, so no probs there and the spark plug looks ok. It sounds like it is turning and turning but with no eventual fire up. Is it possible that the carb has blocked. If so, is ther a quick fix?

Remove the air filter and take a close look at it with a bright light. It may be clogged. IF so, replace it. Also get a can of starter fluid and a helper. Have your helper squirt a little starter fluid into the air filter opening while u start it up. IT will start. Then keep it running by adding more starter fluid until the problem clears, usually within a minute. Joe

4 thumbs up please. ty

If there is an anti fire solinoid on the base of the float bowl you need to check it functions ok, unscrew it from the float bowl, switch the ignition on, the centre pin should retract fully into its housing, if not it will shut off the main jet in the carb and cause all sorts of problems.
