I did not get a chance to call the water department today and unless there is serendipity, it might be Friday before I'm able to meet with them or they might even try to fluff it off onto next week...

So, I take it that...

On a previous mower, I remember dissecting a YouTube to figure out which way was up on a replacement coil. I could do it again for a different push mower (Honda HRR216 w/ a GVC160), but it's raining,...

Now I feel dumb. The 20k is offset on my multimeter and I did not have it in the right spot.

Bad Coil?

The coil on the Briggs & Stratton motor for my push mower went bad last year, so I replaced it with one that I bought on eBay and everything worked until a couple of weeks ago.

Any idea why it didn't start immediately, but the old one restarted (both the indoor and outdoor unit) after like fifteen minutes.?

Does an A/C capacitor need to recharge?

Based upon previous threads found via a forum search, I tried replacing the start capacitor on my Carrier outdoor unit (25HCD436A0031010) this evening.

Addendum: Hopefully, final update.

The float valve was definitely stuck which wouldn't let me blow air into the carburetor, so I see no way gas could get into the bowl and what I did above solved...

I'm not going to put the mower back together until in the morning, but now that I have the carb back together, I am pretty confident it will work. The float now hangs down much further than it did...

I could not blow through the inlet with the float valve hanging down, so I removed the pin that was acting as its hinge and the only thing I saw holding it on.

I then tried blowing again to no...

My push mower has a Briggs & Stratton 625ex (093J02-0006-F1) engine which I can pretty much reliably pull-start every day, but then the motor just peters out. Last week, it would go just long enough...
