Mower will not stay running

My lawn mower will only start if it has been primed but will not stay running. It has a new air filter, plenty of gas and oil. I have mowed my lawn at least 6 times this season but the last time I tried to start it, acted like the engine stalled.

Sounds like a lack of fuel. If it has a briggs motor replace fuel pump diaphram in carb.

Why does my Generac 3600 start,, but won't stay running?


Does it stall when open the choke? If yes, thoroughly clean the carb.

Engine will turn over/crank but will not run


All internal combustion engines have the same requirements. They must have the correct air fuel mixture and source of ignition in order to run. Although I am unfamiliar with the system you have, the fact thst it will start without the air filter but won't with the air filter indicates that you either have a dirty air filter (you said yours was clean) or you have too much fuel entering the combustion chamber. Beyond that I would only be guessing the reason (air fuel mixture regulator, worn jet, wrong size jet, something else bocking air flow etc.)

Won't start No fuel filter problem. There is spark at the plug wire. Can it be the oil level switch?


More than likely the throttle valve is stuck closed and the engin isn't getting air and is now flooded, Remove spark plug overnight to allow gas to evap. Spay the carb and lincage with WD 40 to clean everything up; check throttle funtionality re assemble the next day. Prime wih two squirts if your machine has a priming bulb. Pull on the cord and start a digging!

Our onan generator ran out of gas. we refueled but the generator will not start. i gave it a shoot of starting fluid, the generator fired and run for a second, then died. could it be a cogged fuel filter?...


No, not the filter, you will need to try to prime the carb better then with starting fluid, pour some gasoline down the carb, you may have to do this a few times, but everything will fire back up again once you get the air out of the system

Generator doesn't start


Hi

Check the spark at the plug,compression and carburation.Priming the engine,putb some gas in the cilinder and start the engine.If the engine runs only the gas you puted in the cilinder you have a delivery problem to find and fix.Remove the carb,disassembly and clean it,check and clean the air and gas filters.

Toro 72 lawn mower


try taking the air filter off and spraying some starting fluid in the carburator. This should start the engine for a short period and pull the gas from the tank. I suspect you have an air lock in the line. you could also take the line off the carburator and let the gas flow out.
