First things first:
1) make sure that the kill for the magneto/coil is breaking contact( it is on the side of the mower,follow the cable down from the red bar)
2) gas to carburetor
3) spark to plug/s
4) gas to cylinder/s

pull plug and try starting mower, observe spark plug for spark and fuel coming out of cylinder/s. if spark no gas, then check to see if it getting to the carburetor, if it is then it is the float and seat in the carburetor and will need to be cleaned/replaced/rebuilt. Or just simple pour gas into the carburetor and try starting if it starts then it is the fuel line, carburetor. Hope this helped Tim

My poulan pro lawn tractor won't start. when i turn the key it click's 1 time can you help ?


Have you checked the battery terminal connections? Is the battery charged fully? Are you sitting on the seat when you try to crank the mower? Could be any of the above but most likely battery connection or the battery is discharged or old.

John Deere LA145...it will fire up and immediately die and then won't start again. What should I do?


Usually this symptom means a clogged filter, gas tank outlet tube is plugged or a clogged needle valve. But if it smells gassy it is probably not starving, but may be running too rich. If it does not smell gassy then it's probably a fuel delivery problem. Sometime rubber fuel hoses can swell up inside and restrict flow.

I bought a craftman lawn mower 6.75hp. I only used it twice, and then I let the lawn mower set in my garage for about 6 years, with the gas and oil in it. Now it won't start, and I did get it to start...


If it has been stood with the same fuel in it for any lenght of time, then the fuel will go bad, drain the fuel and re fill with fresh fuel, if there is a bowl drain on the carb slacken this and drain the bowl, now try again, if it does not sort itself out after a lenght of running then will need to remove the carb float bowl and blow an air line through the jets.
