Simplicity 7114 won't rev up

Recommended Posts

Guest
I was mowing with this tractor on Friday and it worked fine. When I went to use it this morning, it would start and idle but would not rev up. I tried increasing throttle and squirting gas in the carb, but this made it stall, as well, so I don't think it is a fuel supply problem. Could it be the governor? It seems so strange that it worked fine on Friday, but it won't today. Please help, I have three acres to mow today? Jere

Brad - seems like your's needed to warm up some before using. The newer engines can be like that. Jere - Check that the throttle cable is not loose or broken by making sure it does phyisically move somewhat. Check the air filter and spark plug and clean or replace as needed. A clogged air filter can foul the spark plug in a hurry. Also try adjusting the carb hi-speed in a little to lean it out. If you washed it off or it was damp out you may have some moisture on the points, plug wire or coil.
