Mower >Engine Starting< problems

I have a craftsman front self propelled mower that will not start. I put new gas in in and it will turn the blade but it won't start. The mower has been sitting for a while.What should I do next?

Welcome to the forums!

Have you checked the sparkplug? When it sat unused for a long time - was there gas in it? the carb might need cleaning. The small engine mechanics should be along a little later, they may want to know the specific model that you have.

Difficult Starting

Try removing the air filter and see if it will start. If it does, you need a new air filter.
