The engine won't start or is hard to start. What can I do?
Your not out of gas are you?
Is the spark plug wire attached to the plug.
Check the spark plug porcelain, maybe it is cracked.
The spark plug may be fouled, clean the electrodes and reset the plug gap.
Is the gas line obstructed? Remove fuel like at carburetor and check for obstruction. Drain gas tank and replace with clean, fresh fuel.
Is the fuel clean? You didn't use a dirty or rusty gas can did you? If you did, it might be better to let small engines technician check the fuel system and carburetor.
Stale gas that has set around and lost its strength is a trouble maker...hard starting and loss of power results.
Maybe there is water in the gas. Condensation in the tank or in your gas can sometimes happens. Carburetor could be out of adjustment.
Maybe you over-choked and flooded the engine. Put throttle in run or fast position and crank several times to slear out the excess gas.
Your throttle control may be set so that it does not fully close the choke.
Dirty or plugged air cleaner, may result to no air flow.
