Problems arise in cold weather, because cold air is oxygen-rich, as you can imagine throws the ratio way off. Without the choke, the engine gets too much air for the amount of gas the engine receives. We call this a lean condition. A mower just won`t start or starts and stalls right away when the AFR is too lean.
Higher temperatures create higher resistance to the flow of voltage; that`s why coils usually fail when the mowers are hot and start working again when the engine cools.
If your mower won`t start the cause could be the weather. When air temperature dips below 50 degrees, your mower is harder to crank because the oil is a little thicker and might need a few extra poles to get started. When that happens, roll the mower into the sun and let it warm up.
If a mower is hard to start, it may be the result of a dirty carburetor and/or a clogged air filter. Use a screwdriver to remove the carburetor and clean any dirt out of it with a rag. Clean the air filter or replace it if it`s disposable.
