My Lawn Mower Won’t Run

Today’s lawn mowers are pretty sophisticated machines. They have smart electronics and fuel systems and if things are not right, they can malfunction easily.

The first thing to do as always is check your fuel quantity. Then check your fuel quality. Is it stale or have water in it? Fuel problems are the number 1 issue when it comes to your lawn mower not running.

If the fuel seems to be OK, make sure that the spark plug wire has not become disconnected, the on switch is on and the choke is on as well. These simple things can trip us up if it has been a long time since we operated the mower.

Also check to see that it is not in gear, in neutral, your foot is depressed on the clutch or brake pedal and you are seated in the seat on a riding lawn mower.

If those checks do not result in your lawn mower not running, then it is time to seek professional guidance and have it properly diagnosed.
