Try to start it using jumper cables to boost it from another battery. If it starts, your battery needs replacing.

First check to see if there is a fuel shutoff under the tank. On some models there is a fuel filter screen inside the tank where the fuel line connects to the tank. If niether of these work, R&R the carb.

I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

Carburetor is gummed up. Thank You Ethanol Gas

Toro Lawn Mower... | Answered on Nov 25, 2014

You mean cleaned? Many times it just needs to have the Bowl taken off and the Jet cleaned with a Welders Tip Cleaner.
Blame Ethanol gas for the gummed up carb

You need to see if you are getting spark at the plug.

Blue spark is good
White spark, not so good
NO spark, not good. This would mean that the Ignition Coil is bad.

Let me know if you need more help.

Wait until the mower cools off

1. Remove the drive belt cover from the top of the mower
2. Tip the mower up, being careful to not go too far or the oil and fuels may spill out
3. Remove the mower blade - as I recall the bolt is 5/8" (could be 9/16") You will have to hold the blade from turning (if you have impact tools, this will be much easier)
4. Remove the blade
5. Pull the pulley out or off and remove the belt - be careful to not lose the crankshaft "woodruff" key - it's the little piece of half/moon shaped metal that keeps the pulley from spinning on the crankshaft.
6. Reverse the steps to reinstall

You MUST make sure the blade is tight when you reinstall it. Also, the blade usually fits over a couple of pins - make sure they are lined up properly and the blade is installed right-side up.

There is a crankcase vent on top that may be cracked or out of place causing the oil to leak or the upper crankshaft seal may be leaking.

Did the cable break? Or did it just stop working? In general you have to figure if it came off, break or did the adjustment slip. Readjust if necessary or replace the hole cable or re install it correctly. Simple Question, so many answers. And if all else fails, take it to a lawn mower repair shop.
