Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have trouble getting my troybilt riding mower to start. I have to turn the engine over forever to get it to fire. Sometimes I have to spray starting fluid in the carb to get it to fire. I have changed the spark plug, the fuel filter, and im using fresh gas. After starting it runs fine. But after sitting for an hour, I have the same problem again. Any suggestions?

Hello,

It sounds like your choke is not adjusted correctly. Remove the air filter and do a visual check to make sure the choke is actually closing when it is applied. If not you can adjust the cable, that should solve the problem.

Hope this helps

Engine doesnt fire, battery charged, lights work


This is not an electronic issue...this is an engine issue.

Engines need 3 things to start

Spark
Fuel
Compression

First thing I would test first is for a fuel issue. Spray carburetor spray generously into the carburetor and the plug hole... once you put the plug back in, start the unit up... if it runs for a few seconds , you have a carburetor issue, which 8 outta 10 times, is the issue.

I'm guessing this is a riding mower... doesn't say what you are working on.

Engine turns over but won't start


Use a starting fluid spray.
If the engine fires then the problem is lack of fuel. Clean and check all the fuel pathways starting at the fuel tank. If necessary strip and clean the carburettor. Check that the choke and throttle are not sticking.
If the engine doesn't fire check the plug(s) are clean and in good condition, plugs can fail under pressure. Check the cylinder compression. Check the ignition timing.

My troybilt bronco riding mower won't start the gas n oil r fine when I turn key it has no fire


possibly a bad starter switch which has a built in kill switch. There is a wire that goes up to the coil that is used to kill the spark when you shut it down and also goes in the safety circuit to prevent it from starting unless everything is in the right position. sometimes you can unhook the wire and still run safely. if it doesn't shut down when the switch is in the off position a toggle switch can be wired in to ground the circuit if you need it.

My westwood ride on mower, model 2012 wont start.


Could be a few things, First, you say it's getting fuel, but is the fuel fresh? It may have water in it and act like your engine. Did this problem just start happening? Did you happen to ride over something that may have sheared the key on the flywheel? This would throw the timing off on the engine. If you can try to start it while spraying gas into the carb throat and it keeps running, then it could just be a dirty caburetor or a misadjusted carb float. Good luck, Bill
