Question

YT4000 has less then 10 hours on it. I didn’t use it for about 4 months and it will turn over until the battery finally dies. I recharge the battery and go through the same thing with no start or even trying to start. I changed the gasoline out to make sure it was good but it still just cranks and cranks with no attempt to start. What could be wrong with it? I really need to get this resolved so I can cut my grass cause the grass is getting very tall at my house.

I saw a few other posts where people said to remove the air filter and spray carb cleaner into the carb to get it to start but when i looked at mine after removing the air filter all i see is where the fuel hose clamps on and no “open carb” to spray anything into.

    Try mixing some Sea Foam fuel conditioning product in with your tank of new gas to see if a moderate amount of cleaning will improve your tractor engine's performance.

  1. I suspect the carburetor needs to be cleaned. Sometimes debris can get into the float bowl and plug the passages up cause the problem you are having. I suspect the fuel system is the problem. Replacing the gas was a great first start. You can also remove the spark plug and check is gas is getting that far. Make sure the connection on the spark plug is okay. I hope this helps.
