jungle in the un-mown back yardSome people don’t pay much attention to their lawn mowers and lawn tractors until they are ready to mow their lawn. Then, when the mower won’t start, or runs a little and then dies, they need someone to get their mower fixed and get that lawn mowed before it becomes a jungle out there.

More and more people are thinking ahead, and getting their lawn mowers and lawn tractors serviced when the weather starts to warm up and the grass starts growing again, so they are ready to go when their lawn needs a trim.

Lawn Mower won’t start?

Regular lawn mower maintenance helps prevent problems, and lengthens the life of your lawn equipment. But even with regular maintenance, there can still be surprises.

* * Before you start to work on your lawn mower or lawn tractor, remember to Always review and refer to the operator’s manual for guidance specific to your lawn equipment.

Husqvarna rear discharge lawn mowerHere are 4 quick steps to get you going again:

1.  If the Starter Rope on the engine of your lawn mower is hard to pull, or seems to be stuck,

  • your engine flywheel brake (usually a bar on the handle of your lawn mower) may not be fully depressed when you try to pull the rope
  • your mower blade may be too close to the ground and dragging in tall grass (move to a flat, hard surface like a sidewalk or driveway)
  • your mower deck may be clogged with grass clippings (turn your mower OFF, disconnect the spark plug, and then remove the grass clippings)

> > If you have a Battery Started lawn mower or lawn tractor, and nothing happens when your turn the key, your battery may need to be re-charged or replaced.

2. When’s the last time you cleaned or replaced your Air Filter? Your air filter should be replaced or properly cleaned at least once each mowing season (which can mean once each year, here in Florida, where some of us have to mow our lawns all year around). Take a look at your air filter, if it looks like time for a change or cleaning, it’s time.

Walk Behind Lawn Mower3. The problem may be in your Gas Tank. (Ethanol/Gasoline blend fuel goes “stale” in about 30 days, according to the technical advice of Briggs & Stratton.) If you don’t use a fuel treatment like Briggs & Stratton Fuel Stabilizer, replace the gas in your tank with fresh fuel.

4. Check your Spark Plug. Good maintenance practice is to replace the spark plug in your mower each year. If you already replaced your spark plug this year, check it for being fouled/dirty, loose, or even a spark plug wire that’s disconnected.

If you try these quick steps, and you still can’t start your lawn mower or lawn tractor, call Black Creek Services 904.449.3986. We may be able to provide a suggestion to get you started again, over the phone.
