How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
Possible cause 1: In some models, when you tip the mower, fuel can leak into the carbon in the cap, which restricts the venting of the fuel system. This can cause the engine not to start, or only run for a few minutes, then quit. POSSIBLE SOLUTION: Leave the cap to dry out or replace it with a new lawn mower cap.
A dirty carburetor is one of the most common causes for a lawn mower not being able to start after sitting unused for months or years at a time.
Riding Mower Clicks but Doesn`t Crank
When you hear a click as you turn the key, a weak battery, bad starter solenoid, faulty wiring, failed starter motor or a seized engine could be the cause. This DIY troubleshooting will help you figure out what to fix.
Clear the mower deck of debris
Grass clippings can clog the mower deck, especially while mowing a wet lawn, preventing the blade from turning. If the starter rope seems stuck or is difficult to pull, then it`s probably due to a clogged deck.
The most common cause of your mower engine not starting after a long period of storage is stale fuel, but there are many other possible reasons there could be a fault. Our advice is to contact your local lawn mower servicing provider for a professional inspection.
Bad starter motor: If you hear a single click when you turn the key, but the engine won`t start, that could mean there`s a problem with the electrical system. The starter motor is responsible for physically turning the engine over and getting the engine to fire. If this is the issue, you`ll need a new one installed.
A simple solution to getting the ignition key to turn may be as easy as checking the gear shift. In automatic cars, the ignition key won`t turn in the lock if it`s not parked or in neutral. Gently move the gear shift from side to side to check its fully in position, before trying to turn the key.
If the oil levels are too low, the lawn mower will not start and may need to be serviced or replaced. When the lawnmower`s oil level is low, it can cause damage to the engine. If your lawn mower does not have any oil in it, you should check it for leaks.
If the starter motor spins but does not crank the engine, you likely have a problem with… Faulty or damaged battery. To address this issue, check the battery and charging system for problems.
