Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

You have debis in the fuel float bowl. Remove the float bowl, clean the bowl and the bowl NUT, Shoot some carb cleaner up into the jet where the bowl nut threads into (center) and clean the orifice. Put it back together wait 30 seconds after turning on fuel or adding fuel and start the engine. If this does not work respond here and I will help you.
Make sure to include your ENGINE model number in your response.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I can't start my honda lawnmower, checked the oil, put new gas use choke,it gives litle sound but not enough to start


Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.

Lawnmower w/auto-choke stops when choke closes


Hi an welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

What has happened is that when the system cavitated the engine drew debris into the Jet orifice in bottom of the carb. You will have to remove the float bowl by removing the 4 mounting scres and the bowl nut.

Once you have the bowl off the Jet / Orifice is located in the very bottom of the carb. It will be recessed about 3/8 inch inside the ventrui. It is BRASS. It can be removed with a flat bladed screwdriver. When you get the jet out hold it up to the light. You should see a pinhole in it. No light.. JET is clogged. Just clean it and reinstall it.

After you have cleaned the jet... take a l;ook at the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut assy that must also be clear. Before you re-install the float bowl turn on the gas and gently lift the float \ensuring that fuel flow stops. Then as you let the float down it should pass fuel. If you do not have feul flow at this point then check the gas tank outlet for obstructions. Once you have established fuel flow reinstall the float bowl, nut and mounting screws.

It should work just fine after this.

A word to the wise.... DO NOT disconnect any linkages unless you have to...! Take a digital picture of the link connections BEFORE you remove them. Thrust me you will be glad you did!

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

I have a Honda GCV 160 LAWNMOWER IT WILL ONLY RUN WHEN FULLY CHOKED


BEFORE you go thru all of the advice and look at most other Honda web info.....go and buy a brand new spark plug and start with that! It appears Honda used a NGK spark plug in the past that fails after some time....giving the syptoms of problems with the carb, runs for 10-30 seconds, sticky valve, etc. Do not try to clean and use the old spark plug!! Check this out....it was the answer I was looking for after hours of work, reading, and talking to Honda dealers ---- http://forum.doityourself.com/outdoor-power-equipment-small-engines/261743-honda-lawnmower-starting-then-cutting-out.html

My troybuilt yard pony riding lawnmower will start with the choke fully open and then dies immediatly when you take the choke off. It will only start and run with the choke fully open, but dies after 20-30...


Do you mean that you can start it normally using the choke (that would be choke CLOSED), but then it dies immediately when you move it to run (that would be choke OPEN)? And if you leave the choke in the starting position that it dies after 20-30 seconds?----- If I have that all right, then you definitely have a restriction in the gas supply. Drain all of the gas from the mower and don't use any old gas. If you have any more old gas (from last season) don't use it. If this mower has a gas filter, replace it. Put just a little fresh gas in the tank plus a little of the cleaner. Start it up, do that a few times if needed. Use a fuel additive such as Sea Foam to keep the gas from gumming up so fast.

Mower not running at set speed, choking


you should have an air/fuel mixture screw on the carb somewhere. Start the engine and turn it one way then the other a small amount at a time. One way it will get worse and one way it will get better. Keep turning till it smooths out
