Hi guys, hoping someone can help me here.
We have a year old petrol lawnmower, it worked fine last year and used it probably a dozen times, then it sat in the shed over the winter and now it comes out to play as the sunshine and spring arrive. However, it won't run I've emptied the fuel tank and put brand new fuel into the tank. It has oil in there and everything is as it was last year.
It's a Tesco lawnmower and it's very easy to operate. You prime it a couple of times with this bulb like thing which draws the fuel into the carburettor I presume and once it starts it manages the fuel flow from there. This is great and we can get it to start but once the fuel that's primed runs out (almost instantly) it won't continue to run...
The spark plug is clean however that wouldn't be the cause as it always starts upon priming and then engine sounds fine, it's almost as if the fuel is not being drawn into it after it starts.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
