Why Will My Honda HT 3813 Not Start?

The Honda HT 3813 was a riding mower made by the Japanese manufacturing giant. It came in several models with a bag. It was adaptable for snow removal and had towing capability. Problems with the Honda HT 3813 may be attributed to poor or infrequent maintenance.

Engine Fails to Start

If the engine fails to start, check to make sure there is fuel in the tank and check the oil. Put the shift lever in gear and disengage the PTO lever. Check the spark plug and replace it. If the engine is not even trying to turn over, then check to make sure the battery has a charge.

Engine Loses Power

If the engine loses power, check the air cleaner. If the air cleaner is dirty, clean or replace it. The engine may also be overloaded; try shifting to a lower speed. If the engine overheats, check the radiator screen and see if it is clogged. Also check radiator coolant levels.

Vibration or Poor Operation

Check to make sure the fuel is not stale and is the correct octane. Check the blade and engine. Loose blades can cause excessive vibration; simply tighten them using a wrench. Check to make sure the engine is still securely mounted.

Uneven Mowing

If the mower mows poorly then the tractor may be going too fast. Shift down to a lower speed and try again. Check to make sure that grass is not accumulating in the inside deck; if it is, clean it. Sharpen the blades if they are dull. Check tire pressure and inflate if they are low. Change the height on the cutter. Clear out the chute if it is clogged.
