Word on the internet is that HONDA is going to cease bringing gasoline powered mowers to the USA. So, if ya want one, get it NOW.

edit~ HONDA will continue to market generators and pumps to North America.

My experiences: carburetor clogged with a grain of dust. Solution: unscrew nut at bottom of carburetor bowl, find the finest wire you can (one strand from a braided copper wire), poke wire through tiny holes in carburetor, blow through all the holes, reassemble. Success rate: 100% over numerous cases.

Old gas.

Mine would not start a couple of years ago so I turned it over to the local whiz kid. Told me never to leave gas in the tank over the winter, even with fuel preservative. Also said to get fresh gas every month.

I had an issue with my lawn mower not starting, so I checked it and found that the fuel filter was clogged. That was the cause of the problem, so I replaced the fuel filter with a new one and it worked fine. If you're having trouble with your lawn mower not starting, it might be worth checking to see if you have a clogged fuel filter as well

Last week when we were expecting a bad windstorm, I got out my 11hp 6,500 watt generator, to make sure it was ready if needed. I had not run it for two years, and last time, turned off the valve from the tank and ran it until it died, then added some Stay-bil. I choked it and pulled until my arm was tired, and not even a pop. I pulled off the air cleaner and dribbled a little gas into the carb, and on the first pull it started and ran great. I think sometimes the small engines just don't have enough suction when pull starting to pull in the gas without a priming bulb. I never have that problem on the riding mower, but it's electric start.

I'm guilty of forgetting to pull back the "Yes I'm alive." bar occasionally.

On many riding mowers you have to be sitting in the seat before they will start. I'm sure most people are sitting down before they start their mower, but I had a neighbor who liked to stand up while operating his rider.

There are several common reasons why a lawn mower might fail to start. Some of the most common include:

A dead battery: If the battery in your lawn mower is dead, it won't be able to turn over the engine and start.

Dirty air filter: A dirty air filter can restrict the air flow to the engine, making it difficult to start.

Old or stale gas: Old gas can cause the carburetor to clog, making it difficult for the engine to start.

A faulty spark plug: A faulty spark plug can prevent the engine from starting.

A clogged fuel filter: A clogged fuel filter can prevent fuel from reaching the engine, causing it to fail to start.

A clogged carburetor: A clogged carburetor can prevent the engine from starting by restricting the air and fuel flow to the engine.

It's a good idea to check these common issues before calling a professional or taking your lawn mower to a repair shop.

The person(s) using the mower don't know how to start it.

No gas, no oil, etc.
