Trying to get my JDeere 100 mower started. It's turning over

Customer Question

Trying to get my JDeere 100 mower started. It's turning over but not catching, not even a sputter. Is the clear bowl where the fuel filter is supposed to be full of fuel?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: New battery 3 year old mower, left full of treated supreme gasoline in the winter.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi I'm Wayne

I see you been waiting a long time

I will help you with this

Yes that bowl should be 1/2 to 3/4 full

it sounds like the float needle is stuck closed

drop the float bowl, make sure the float is free up and down

and the needle valve moves with it also

I hope this helped you
