How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

One of the critical factors that ensure a smooth-running lawn mower is a clean fuel. This is why most lawn mowers come with “fuel filters”. These filters prevent foreign particles in the fuel from clogging the engine.
Unfortunately, even the highest grade of gasoline still has contaminants in it that can limit efficiency and potentially damage your fuel injectors and fuel pump. That`s why your Honda vehicle has a factory-installed fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located somewhere in between your fuel tank and your engine. Typically, the fuel filter is either located inside the fuel tank (in the opening of the fuel line, which feeds gas to your car), or somewhere in the fuel line (this is usually at the bottom of your car.)
Fuel filters usually connect to the fuel line at the intake side or the outtake side. The entire assembly is secured with a mounting bracket. The fuel filter may be located at any point along the fuel line, meaning that it could be near the fuel tank or closer to the engine.
Your vehicle has two fuel filters. The first filter mounts on top of the engine on the left-hand side. The second filter is inside the diesel fuel conditioner module.
This can be something as simple as an annoying sputter when you try to start the mower, difficulty getting it started, or it can cause the mower to idle unevenly. More serious issues include a lack of power when you are mowing, or the lawnmower won`t start at all.

Wont start no ignition put new plug in and fuel filter
Flush gas tank, fill with fresh gas and Stabil. Replace air filter. Remove bowl from carb clean bowl and holes in bowl screw.
Mower start up and runs, but starts to cut back, and smokes just a little bit. The mower stops smoking when it throttle up. It will continue to run but not at full throttle. I can hold a finger gently over the fuel primer bulb and it will throttle up for a small time.
It sounds like she’s being deprived of the correct fuel / air mixture due to a dirty carburetor (the biggest problem with mowers when gas is left to sit for a period of time). If you do not know how to take the carburetor apart and clean it thoroughly, then I suggest taking it to the local shop (hardware store or mower shop) and having it tuned up. It’ll probably be just fine and worth the money. Hope this helps and good luck.James

Lawn mower cranck but wont start…
Since you already checked for spark and air I would drain all the fuel out of it and check that fuel for water. Over time some lawn mowers end up with contaminated fuel. You can see the water sitting on the bottom of the fuel if you let it stand for a bit in a small plastic bowl.
Be sure to empty and dry out you fuel can as well. Especially if the mower stopped running right after a refuel. Which is a good sign your gas can is contaminated too.

I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”. The stupid bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16″ and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!
