What to check if your lawn-mower won’t start.
Check the fluid levels, first of all make sure that you have plenty of gas, and make sure that your oil level if full as well. Do not over fill with oil.
After you have checked your fluids, now its time to check your air cleaner more commonly known as your air filter. It will be inside a plastic case bolted down with one long screw.
Usually the screw can be removed with a flat head screw driver. The air filter will be made up of some kind of sponge. If it’s clogged up looking or if its dirty clean it with some gas.
Just pour some gas on the air filter sponge and let the gas run through it. After you have cleaned or replaced the air cleaner with a new one, screw it back down, inside it’s case.
Now after you have checked the fluids and cleaned your air cleaner, remove the spark plug, with a spark plug socket. Once you have removed the plug you can clean it up with a wire brush and some gas.
But it’s best if you just buy a new spark plug, you can buy new plugs at your local automotive parts store. Or at a small engines parts store.
Just take your old plug in to the parts store so that your new spark plug will be the same size and thread as the old or worn out plug.
Now your push mower should start up, after a little maintenance, fluids, filter, and plug.
