Engine cranking but not starting on Ferris FW25

Hi Folks,

I purchased my Ferris walk-behind series mower a few years ago and for the first time am unable to start the engine – it cranks but doesn’t start. What should I do to overcome this problem?


Hello Tom,

It sounds to be like your engine may have flooded, especially if you repeatedly tried to start in quick succession. Shift the throttle out of the choke setting and wait for a day for the flooding to clear before starting again. If it still refuses to start, inspect the battery for corrosion or any other signs of damage, it may need to be replaced.
