Alot of times fuel goes stale over the winter, if this is the 1st time its been used this season you will need to drain the gas and use fresh. it will be hard to start but if that is the issue it will start.

Troy Bilt pony riding mower, starts, runs for a short period then chokes out. Changed air filter, spark plug cleaned kill switch under seat, still does the same thing.

Check and probably replace fuel filter. Then carb will need to be cleaned/rebuilt. Sounds like the needle valve is sticking or the float is sticking.

Will crank over but will not start. i have replaced the spark plugs and fuel filter and cleaned the carburator. i dont know what else to do.

does it have spark? if so spray carb cleaner shot in carb and see if it will fire, also make sure you have power to your fuel solenoid in float bowl. my guess is the fuel solenoid(roll-over) is probably your problem..Good Luck 2StrokeJim

A champion cj 8 plug will work fine. As far as air filter it is probably a paper on, take the old one to a dealer or small engine repair shop and they can match it up for ya.

Ok...time to take her pulse then!

1. Does it have fuel? Look for water in fuel *(check gascan too!)

2. Does it have spark? You need to remove the plug and inspect it. do you see any oil, fuel or even water on the plug tip? You can plug in the sparkplug and dangle it near the metal part of the engine and confirm that the plug makes spark. If it doesnt get another one just to make sure the plug isnt fouled out.

3. Can the engine breathe? Remove the air filter and see if the filter is oil,water or fuel soaked. Is it rusty? Covered in dust, dirt, fuzz or fur?

You can check the engine once you are sure you have spark by putting a splash of fresh gas in the sparkplug hole before putting the plug back in and attempting to start it....leave the air filter off for now. You dont want a bad filter getting in the way right now. If it starts and runs you can put the air filter back on and try to start it....if it wont start....replace filter too!

Good luck and be careful!

Lawn mower wont start. changed air filter, spark

Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

My lawn mower cranks but wont start I have

The magnets are fitted in the flywheel under the pullstart engine cover but i dont think thats your problem. It sounds more like fuel trouble. Remove and clean out the carb. and maybe renew the diaphram.

If you have spark and gas, it should start. The plug shouldn't be wet with gas, adjust the carbuerator fuel flow screw to reduce fuel to the engine. Use full choke to get it started

Honda EG 2200 Generator wont Start

First make sure that you have a spark; remove the spark plug and position it so that the threads are touching the engine frame. Pull the cord and check the plug for spark. If you have spark, put the plug back in.

Get some starting fluid and spray it into the air intake of the carbuerator. Try to start the engine. If it starts and then stops, that indicates that you have a fuel delivery problem. Clean the fuel filter.
