I like starting these kinds of educational blogs…

It’s that time of year again when the grass is growing and you have to start mowing your lawn. But what do you do if your lawnmower won’t start? Don’t worry, we’re here to help. In this blog post, we will explain some simple steps you can take to get your lawn mower running like new again.

What’s required for a lawnmower to start?

First, let’s take a look at what is required for a lawnmower to start. A lawnmower needs three things to run: fuel, air, and spark. Fuel mixes with air in the engine’s cylinders and the spark ignites the mixture, which powers the engine. If one of these three things is missing, the engine will not start.

Check the fuel:

If your lawnmower won’t start, the first thing you should check is the fuel. If there is no fuel in the tank, or if the fuel is old and has gone bad, the engine will not start. Be sure to add fresh fuel to the tank and try again.

Check the air filter:

Another common reason why lawnmowers won’t start is because the air filter is dirty. The air filter keeps dirt and debris from entering the engine, and if it’s dirty, it can restrict the flow of air to the engine. Clean or replace the air filter and try again.

Check for spark:

If the engine has fuel and air, but still won’t start, it may be because there is no spark. The spark plug ignites the fuel-air mixture in the engine’s cylinders, and if it’s fouled or damaged, the engine will not start. Inspect the spark plug and replace it if necessary.

These are just a few simple steps you can take to get your lawn mower running again. If you’re still having trouble, be sure to consult your owner’s manual or contact a professional for help.

Below are some things a professional will try to get your lawn mower starting again:

  1. -check for a spark using a spark tester: If there is no spark, the problem may be with the ignition system
  2. -check for fuel: If there is fuel in the tank, but the engine is not getting it, the problem may be with the fuel line or fuel filter
  3. -check for air: If the air filter is clean and there is plenty of air flow to the engine, the problem may be with the carburetor or intake manifold.
  4. -clean the carburetor : If the carburetor is dirty, it may be preventing the engine from getting the fuel it needs.
  5. -replace the spark plug: If the spark plug is damaged or fouled, it may be causing the engine to misfire.
  6. -check the compression: If the engine has low compression, it may not be able to start.
  7. -test the fuel filter : If the fuel filter is clogged, it may be preventing fuel from reaching the engine.
  8. -test the ignition system: If the ignition system is not working, the engine will not start.
  9. -test the ignition system : If the ignition system is not working, the engine will not start.
  10. -test the starter : If the starter is not working, the engine will not start.
  11. -test the battery: If the battery is dead, the engine will not start.
  12. -test the safety switches: If the safety switches are not working, the engine will not start.
  13. -test the flywheel key: If the flywheel key is broken, the engine will not start.
