Question about Husqvarna Zero Turn Mower Z5426

1 Answer

My Z5426 won't start. When I pull out the choke and turn the key, gas starts leaking out of the exhaust system just before it gets to the muffler. Last time it did start, it ran really rough. So, I turn off the engine and then tried to restart and that's when I noticed the fuel leak.

Maybe bad fuel, fuel line leaking, flooding of the carburetor, since it did start and ran rough I am assuming that the gas was left set and more then likely this gummed up the carburetor, you will have to clean/rebuild it. If you have a can of carburetor clean you may be able to spray that into there and clean it up, I would not choke it to start it as it sounds like it got/is flooded/ing. Good Luck Tim

You have probably fouled the spark plug (got a heap of black carbon on it) remove the spark plug wash in some petrol then use a wire brush vigorously brush between the contact points on the plug then reinstall. & lastly don't forget to push in the choke when you get it fired up next time.??

2006 Honda Shadow won't start. Gas tank filled. Sat 8 mo. Gas leaked out but not into engine.No sign of external leak. into


1. Drain the gasoline.
2. Remove the carb bowl(s) and turn on the petcock to drain the fuel in the lines.
3. Clean out the carb bowl(s) and replace.
4. Refill with gasoline, add 1 oz of Seafoam fuel system cleaner (I'm not a sponsor, I just haven't found anything better) to each gallon of gas. This will stabilize your fuel as well as do a great job of cleaning out the carb(s).
5. Try to start it.

If it still won't start, begin the standard troubleshooting procedure by first pulling a spark plug and turning it over to ensure gas is getting to the cylinder. If so, replace the plug, hold the plug wire slightly away from the plug and turn it over to ensure a spark jumps between the wire and plug. If so, it starts getting complicated. Buy a manual for the bike if you don't have one and follow the troubleshooting steps there.

Hi, John and the usual suspects are:
1. Enrichner system plugged, not properly functioning or improperly operated.
2. Fuel overflow line pinched or clogged.
3. Restricted fuel supply.
4. Gas cap and or fuel tank not venting properly.
5. Plugged slow jet or passages.
6. Inlet system air leak.

Homelite chain saw MODEL UT109460 will not start up I don't have a manuel and need help to figure out why it won't turn on at all.


Hello again Asher, I'm back. Let's just check a few things:
Gas may be old and stale, this happens when you don't use machine for a long while. Empty old and put in new. Cap should have measurement.
If this is a fuel/oil mixture machine, did you use straight gas? Not good if you did. This could damage your engine.
Do you have spark? If not did you move OFF to ON switch?
Did you put on choke and pull cord till engine almost starts?
If it does this did you then put choke to 1/2 choke?
If you get to this point and engine does start, let it warm shortly and put choke to open.
If still no start it is possible that you have a carburator problem, and need a rebuild. Please let me know how you made out, GOOD LUCK.

Never used weed wacker before I have a Echo SRM225 how do you start the darn. thing..? :) I have pulled and pulled and no I am not out of gas. :)


You need to put it in full choke. If it is in full choke and still won't start, try pulling the trigger a bit. once you have it started in full choke, back it down to half choke and hold down the trigger until it catches. Once it catches take the choke off entirely WITHOUT removing your finger from the trigger.

Stihl ms-250 won,t start , and gas leaking from under the exhaust manifold , also plug seems not to be spaking even when dry . every time i try to start engine it floods . ?? the saw is only 3 mths old ....


You may need a carb rebuild kit. they are thin rubber diaphrams and will harden up and warp if not used regularly or if the fuel is improperly mixed.
These are easy to flood if you pull them too many times on choke. Pull it on HALF choke until it pops. then turn the choke off, into the run (I) position and pull it until it starts.
If it's flooded, remove teh plug under the cover, blow off the sparking end and pull the engine a few times without the plug. this will empy the cylinder. WATCH YOUR EYES!
