All will have a manual choke, or an automatic choke. You can remove spark plug and put a teaspoon of fuel into the cylinder, re-install the spark plug to see if engine will try to start.

What should I do? Is it possible three machines would all have the same problem? Is it an easy fix?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
If you just bought them I would return them, you should not have to work on a new mower!
