The first thing to check is whether the lawn mower has a spark – click here if unsure how to do that. If there isn’t a spark, replace the spark plug and.see if that solves the problem.
If there is a spark but the mower won’t start place a small amount of petrol into the hole which the spark plug screws into – usually easiest to siphon petrol from the mower using a small tube. Then tighten the spark plug in place and attempt to start the mower. If the mower starts but doesn’t continue to run, then the problem is most likely the carburetor, as it is not allowing petrol to flow through it. If the mower starts and continues to run then the carburetor is fine.
If you determined the problem to be the carburetor then open it up and give it a service – click here for assistance. Things to pay particular attention to in the carburetor are: green/off petrol, main jet being blocked, position of the float (whether the needle is too worn), and the diaphragm – these will all need a good clean.
Another common problem to watch out for is the throttle cable not working properly, this may be a cause for the mower not starting, and can also cause it not to turn off – click here for assistance on this topic.
