I just finished setting up my new Husg 36" walk behind mower. It will not start! Any suggestions, things to check?

I am not asking this to be sarcastic, but is there gas in it and is the gas turned on?

Have u checked the kill switches?

I bought an Aerator once and had the same problem, it ended being the spark plug was mis-gapped. I would also check for a spark from the plug wire in order to rule out a faulty switch and then try a shot of starter fluid, this time of year when things are cold they have a hard time starting anyways.

Choke it and pull the cord several times. Then pull the plug. If its dry, no gas. If its wet, no spark. pull the fuel line at the carb and see what you get. Check all kill switches and low oil cut off if you have one. Hopefully you putting it together didn't void any warranties. Good luck.

If it is new, take it back to the dealer........

If I run my WB out of gas it has to be primmed or it will not restart. It could be the same thing for you . I think the dealer should have set it up but you can just get some starter spray and shoot it in the carb. The fuel line should have a clear filter in line. Is it full of gas? Is the valve OPEN to let gas flow? sometimes you have to loosen the fuel line and let some gas run out to get rid of air blocking the fuel flow. Check blade engaged switch.
