If the battery is dead on that model it’s not going to change anything other than you cannot use the electric starter to start the machine up. It will still start and run with the manual (pull) start.

A good starting point if the mower has been sitting would be to clean the carb out with some carb/choke cleaner. Then replace the spark plug and change the oil. A new air filter would be a good idea if there is any question about how clean it is.

If you have any other questions on your machine just submit back and ask away. We’d be more than happy to assist you in getting the mower back in working condition.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks a lot. The verdict of my problem was a dirty carb. I cleaned it out and she started right up after sitting over a couple years. thanks again Wade B
