Briggs and Stratton won't start

Hi All,

This is my first post, greetings from Ireland.

I have a Husqvarna ride on with a B&S 31G777 0193E1 which won't start. It was working fine when I went to empty the grass collector, turned it off to give the chute a good clean and she wouldn't start again.

Cleaned the carb, refreshed the fuel, checked the spark and did a thumb compression test to confirm air blowing out of the spark plug hole. All seems good with all of that.

She tries to crank but it just won't catch and start. It's kind of like theres a cut off switch interfering. The only cut off switch is below the seat and it seems to be working ok.

Any suggestions or ideas folks, I hate being beaten by this little engine ?

Thanks for reading.

If you have a bright blue spark, then all the cuttoff, safety, etc, switches aren't a problem.

If it won't start after been running, then a light flooding of the engine is likely the problem. It should start after it cools down. Try using full throttle and no choke to start it.
