Ignite a Spark

Having a hard time starting the mower, but it's got plenty of gas and oil? Most likely the problem is the spark plug. Take off the plug’s connector and remove the plug using a spark-plug socket. Check it for buildup. If it’s caked with gunk it won’t be able to spark. Clean the plug with an old toothbrush and reinsert it. If it still doesn’t fires up, time to buy a new plug.
