Clean the air filter (foam type) in warm soap water then apply some oil soaked in, it will smoke afterwards for a short time. Or possible minor adjustment too the mixture screw on the side of the carburetor spring loaded. Allan

lawnmower will start but will not stay on

I had the same problem, what you need to do is adjust your throttle. To do that you there is a switch right in front of the filter. If you are looking right at it pull it all the way to left. If this dosen't work then check the springs that are connected to that switch they have a bad habit of coming loose. I had to replace all of my springs. Hope that helps.

chain brake problems

There is a thin spring like piece of metal that wraps around a hub, that tightens up when the break is in the on position. This loosens when the break is off. You may need to adjust this spring.

P.S. When the spring is tight It stops the motor from spinning.
