Replace the spark plug. Replace the air filter. Empty the fuel tank. Disaassemble the carburetor and empty out any gasoline and sludge in that part. Clean the fuel line of any sludge build-up that has accumulated. Use an air blower clear out any dust and dirt that has accumulated under the engine housing.

Start with the spark plugs, if they are good -move to the battery and cables. Always make sure you have FRESH fuel, and proper oil. Diagnosis becomes easier from there.

The most common problems are spark plugs and clogged air filters. Clean the filter, check for spark, check for compression.

First Check battery. If it has power, and turns over check fuel, fuel filter, and carbeurator. If it wont turn over but has battery check fuses, starter, and solonoid.

Oh dear. This has happened to me as well. You know what if you tried trouble shooting with the manual and it still doesn't work your going to have to use your warranty and call them to replace the parts. Take it back to the store you got it from.

Start with the fuel supply , lawn mowers of this type are known for getting leaks and cracks in the fuel line.

If this type of lawn mower does not seem to want to start then you will need to check your engine.
