I can understand how important it is to have the correct information for your mower. When a unit likes this sits for a long period of time, there are several components that may cause this type of issue. The information that Anna T provide is very good. It will provide the step by step instructions for a tune up and additional maintenance. This would be the best place to start. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread.

John - None of the information above, as far as I can ascertain, shows how to clean a carb. I suspect blocked jet.

The link below shows an exploded view of the carb. fitted to your engine, the main jet is item 40, remove that and make sure the holes are all clear and the retry starting.

please let us know how you get on.

Good Luck

I need to clean the carburetor as it takes hard to start and stops,.. etc etc.. All other things checked and replaced such as oil, fresh fuel, spark plug, air filter, blade condition, spark-checked,. ..etc The sorry fact is, I can not find any video for THIS PEARTICULAR MODEL, as this has diff style of side screws, diff locations and shape of air filter and carburetor, I do not know how to reach there to clean it and replace the gasket kit with new float, valve, nut,.. etc. I need the video for THIS MODEL to step by step open and clean carburetor. Other similar model videos are of no help, as I saw 10s of them.

Q:

What makes my mower hard to start?

A:

This could be just a simple fuel issue, the carb has some trash in it or something like that. Or, it could be a more serious problem where you're rings are worn and the compression from the engine is not what it needs to be. If the machine smokes when it's running (white/grey smoke) I would say the rings are wearing and you have a compression problem. If there is no smoke to notice, it's more than likely just in need of a carburetor cleaning.
