Q:

riding mower will turn but wo'nt start changed spark pluges

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor.

There are three basics the engine needs: Ignition, Compression, and Fuel. The specifics can vary from model to model, and your Manage My Home profile did not list what model this might be, but there are some quick checks you can do to see if you have these three basics. I am assuming from your question that this is a engine with a good battery and that it is just turning over and not firing at all, but even if that is not the case these basic checks can still help narrow down the source of the problem. First, go back to the spark plug. Remove the leads, or wires, that connect from the engine to the plug. Remove the plug and put them back in the leads. Now position the leads so the metal end of the plug is against the engine or another clean unpainted metal ground point. Keep your hands away from the plugs so you do not get shocked, and turn the key to the start position. Look for sparks at the ends of the Spark Plug. Look carefully as they might be hard to see in sunlight or other bright lights. If there is spark there then you have ignition, the first of the three basics. If not, you likely have an electrical problem that needs to be traced. The engine should have been spinning over faster once the plug was removed and you should hear air rushing out of the spark plug holes in puffs. You could even try putting a thumb or finger over each plughole to see if the pressure pushes your finger off when turning over, just be careful not to touch the grounded plugs so you do not get shocked. If that all happens then you have the second ingredient, compression. If not then you may need a valve adjustment or may have a broken component inside the engine. That leaves fuel. Check the tips of the plug you just removed, if fuel is reaching the engine there should be some residue there and they should look somewhat wet. If you used your finger to check compression then you may even see some residue on your finger. If there is fuel here, your problem may be old fuel or a timing issue. Try putting a small amount of good fuel into the throat of the carburetor and turn the key to start. If your problem is fuel related only, the engine should now try to start, or even run, until the fuel you put in is gone. That would indicate the fuel supply is being stopped in the fuel tank, fuel line, fuel filter, fuel pump, or carburetor. Some carburetors have a solenoid to stop the fuel supply when the key is off and a malfunction there could also be the problem. I hope this is helpful.

Q:

Gas Edger does not start - Weed Eater PE 550 type 3

A:

I am sorry you are having a problem with the edger. You indicated that you replaced the fuel lines. I assume that you replaced the fuel pick-up/filter inside the tank. Make sure that you have the proper mix of fresh fuel/oil in the tank. Make sure that you have enough fuel/oil mix in the tank and that the pick-up/filter is submerged in the fuel.

 

The engine needs three things to run. They are fuel, compression and spark. Let’s check for those first. Try to start the engine as you normally do. After you pull the rope, a few times remove the spark plug. The end of it should be wet if it is getting fuel. If not, then you probably have a fuel line problem since you just replaced the carburetor.

 

If the spark plug is wet after try to start the engine, I recommend checking for spark. Allow the spark plug to dry before testing the spark. Conduct that test away from the cylinder. I found a video that will aid in checking for spark. Here  is the video. That video shows a chain saw but the process will be the same for your edger. If you are not getting spark then you may have a bad spark plug or a failed ignition module.

 

If you have spark I recommend checking for compression. To do this you need a compression gauge. You should be able to loan one from Auto zone. They have a loan a tool program. Once you have the gauge installed pull the rope a few times fast. You should have a reading of at least 90 psi. If you do not have this reading there is a problem in the cylinder. This type of repair usually exceeds the valve of the unit.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the edger, you can carry it into your nearest Sears Store or Sears Repair Center. Here is a link that provides more information about locations and repair service: Sears Yard Tool Repair Service.

If you are missing a screw on that carburetor, that could be causing your problem.

Your details indicate that you are not getting fuel to the cylinder. The problem with the loose fastener on the carburetor and the cylinder assembly. The system is probably not able to pull a vacuum and suck gas into the cylinder due to those leaks. I recommend that you resolve those issues and then see if you are getting gas into the cylinder.
