I have a corner lot, 150x150, a small house and alot of land. 3 weeks ago I mowed the front yard and the side yard with no problem. The next weekend I started the back yard. The mower stopped from mowing large grass, and when I went to restart it the cord broke.
I replaced the recoil string and put gas in it, and the mower started up, so I turned it off until my next use. The next weekend, and since, the mower will not start. I took of the spark plug and sanded the black soot at the end. I filled the oil and checked to see if the air cleaner was dirty (it wasn't) and it still wouldn't start.
Next I checked the fuel line and other line that might be for air? It was all cracked, but Lowes had no replacement. I thought it was getting too much air in the fuel mixture. I bought Locktite, goo'd it and wrapped it with electrical tape, and let it cure overnite. That didn't work this morning and my arm is REALLY sore from pulling.
Kelly Jo, Try loosening the gas cap a half turn,and see if it starts.If it starts shut it off and remove gas cap.The tiny vent hole on the cap is probably blocked.You will need to run a small wire thru the vent hole to clear the blockage.It might also help to wash the cap in a small amount of gasoline. Good Luck..Guest
My Yardman 17.5 Briggs and Stratton will turn over, but won't start. I changed the spark plug and it still won't. What can it be?
My Yardman push mower won't start. I went to start it up, but it won't start.
Riding lawn mowers can have issues starting, just like smaller push mowers. If your yardman riding mower won't start you may be able to fix it yourself.
