Yes, if your air cleaner is dirty it will cause the condition that you talked about...flooding.
You need to either replace or clean your airfilter.
The following is for the foam type air cleaner.
Normally if you clean your filter, you would wash the air filter in a cleaner such as kerosene or diesel fuel, dry it, add a little bit of oil to the outside of the sponge filter and squeeze it to distribute the oil around the filter.

Craftsman 675 series 190 cc lawn mower Wont start


Take air cleaner off. Shoot some spray carburetor cleaner in the carburetor and try to start Try this a few times to see if the engine will fire.. If it fires or starts then there is a fuel delivery problem. Could be a dirty fuel filter, bad (stale) gas, a dirty carburetor. If it does not start with the carb cleaner, check the spark plug. It may be fouled. Check for spark - take plug out of head. with the plug attached to plug wire, hold plug with a pair of insulated pliers, and touch outside of plug where the threads are to the engine, while some one pulls on the start cord. You should get a bluish spark. If you get a weak spark use a new plug and try again. There should be a bluish spark. Make sure you hold the plug against the engine making good contact. If no spark at all, could a bad magneto.

Getting back to the carburetor. If you think the gas in the tank is stale, drain it out and put fresh gas in the tank. Change the gas filter.
The arburator may be cleaned by pouring a 1/2 can of fuel system cleaner in the gas tank and spraying the spray cleaner down the carburetor throat.

Carbon fouling spark plugs


Weak Spark, worn piston rings(Burning oil/compression issues), lack of compression, wrong spark plugs, incorrect spark plug gap, engine not reaching operating temperature (Due to short use), carb. is running rich (May need adjusting), dirty air filter (Causing carb. to choke and run rich). Bad gas
All these symptoms could lead up to fouling plugs.
Hope This Helps.

Husqvarna 6021p won't start


Make sure spark plug wire is connected and that plug is not blackened and fouled out. Also check your fuel filter (plugged?), the handbar safety lever & it pull cable and make sure it is opening the breather assembly down at the motor or closing the proper switch (unsure of the setup) Those are typically the most common problems. Good Luck

I just had my mower out and it ran on the first run in 3 weeks


I typically do 6 things in this situation:

1. Verify that the gas tank is full and closed
2. Verify that the oil is filled to the "full line"
3. Remove and inspect air filter clean/replace if necessary
4. Remove and inspect spark plug clean/replace as neccesary
5. Apply warm air to engine block via hair dryer at the spark plug for 5 minutes and attempt to restart
6. If that doesn't work allow the mower to "rest" for 30 minutes and repeat step 5.

MOTOR STARTS, SPUTTERS THEN DIES


Carburetor clogged up, air filter clogged, spark plug fouled; old gas.
This is the best suggestion I can come up with on the information you gave.

I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty the bag to get it to start?


  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas

Lawn mower won't start


Carb is most likely gummed up and will need cleaning. Anytime a gas motor is store through a season, you should use a product called "stabil" in the gas to prevent gumming up. Also check that there is a strong spark coming from coil. To do this, remove spark plug, hook it up to the coil and set it on motor block and pull it over. You should see a strong spark. If you don't see the spark, then either the coil is faulty or the magnet from coil to flywheel is not getting good contact.
