Nospark for lawn mower

At the end of the summer, I put the mower in the basement for the winter. When I took it out in the spring , tried to start it and no spark. Instaled new spark plug and still no spark. Could it be the "dead mans switch" has jamed somehow?

It is a possibility. I would take the cover off and check to see if it is jammed. Also, is it under warranty?

Lawnmowers; mine is not starting. First use this year I believe the fuel might be gummed up from sitting over winter. How do I clean this out?

When gasoline sits for an extended period of time the "varnish" builds up inside the carburetor and can keep your engine from running. If you suspect that this has happened, the only good solution is to first replace the carburetor, and then ALWAYS use a Fuel Stabilizer every time you buy gas for your lawn mower.

Also, at the end of a season, it is always a good idea to run the engine until it is dry and out of gas before storing the lawn mower over the winter. A fuel stabilizer should keep your gas fresh over the winter, and the lawn mower will start up quickly in the spring. If you are the cautious type, always buy fresh gas at the beginning of every season, and NEVER forget the fuel stabilizer no matter what. Gas starts turning bad after just 30 days....

Keep Your Gasoline Power Tool Running for a life time.

When you put up your lawn mower or any power unit for the winter, (or summer "snow blower" ) make sure to drain out the gas,( it is even better to run it out of gas )
the little orfice in the shut off valve or small fitting below the gas tank may gum up and plug up if you don't.

If your unit won't start in the spring then take the line apart at the tank and remove the valve or small fitting in the bottom of your tank and clean the hole out with a pipe cleaner or small wire,
A lot of repair shops charge an arm and a leg when all they do is this very thing about 75% of the time each spring.

Give your gasoline engine a little TLC before you put it away for the Winter...


Before you put your lawn mower, or any gasoline engine powered tool away for the Winter season do it and yourself a huge favor. Take a few minutes to give your trusted engine and lawn mower, leaf blower, tiller, hedge trimmer, etc. a little TLC which will add years to it's life and make it much easier on you in the Spring.

The following steps are all easy to do and they will make a huge difference in the Spring when you need your power tools again:

1. Remove as much of the fuel as you can with a siphon and then run the engine until it runs out of fuel. Leaving that gasoline sitting in your tank and in your engine will cause problems with starting in the Spring. That way you will not have a problem in the Spring when you fire it up again.

Bought a Troy TB110 oush mower at end of last summer. I stored it all winter without opening box. I got it out today, put together and started it. It is leaking oil and blowing white smoke- What do I...

You must have stored it with the spark plug end down. This has caused the oil to get by the rings and on top of the piston. Pull spark plug out and pull starter cord to clear excess oil , put plug back in . Check oil , start mower and let it run until the excess oil burns off and some of it may still be in the muffler. Mower is ok. Some body borrowed my mower and did this resulting in the same problem.

Mower won't turn over

Keep it in the kitchen over night. Or anywhere that is environmentally controlled for that matter. Should start right up as soon as you get it outside.

If it sat for some time without running aslittle as 30 day the fuel is probly stale and needs to be drained and the carb cleaned and possibly a new spark plug
