Lawnboy Tecumseh Starting problem
I have a Lawnboy Self-propelled mower with a Tecumseh engine that's about 6 years old.
Suddenly, it wouldn't start.
Took it in for repair and was told they put in a new spark plug and air filter and cleaned out the fuel jets. Started fine for a couple days.
One week later, same exact problem. Took it back in, they cleaned the jets again, and started fine for a couple days. Following week, same problem. Took it in, they cleaned carb entirely.
And again, for a couple days, it starts fine, but after a week without trying to start it, it won't start.
This has been going on for about a month, and I'm getting tired of taking the mower back to the shop (and I'm sure they're getting tired of seeing me)
When I pull the starter cord, it doesn't even sound like it's trying to "catch" or sputter.
Does this sound more like a fuel or ignition problem, and how can I diagnose it? I don't mind replacing the carb or ignition module; I just don't want to throw away money.
